How to use broken-down in a sentence?

  1. Shanwayne Stephens:

    We had to come up with our own ways of replicating the sort of pushing we need to do. So that's why we thought: why not go out and push the car? we do get some funny looks. We've had people run over, thinking the car's broken down, trying to help us bump-start the car. When we tell them we're the Jamaica bobsleigh team, the direction is totally different, and they're very excited.

  2. Eddie Ray Routh:

    He was living on the edge with all this stuff -- beat down, broken-down car, messed up on drugs.

  3. Anthony Almojera:

  4. Andrew Gillum:

    Everyone believes the absolute worst about that day. At this stage, I don't have anything else to have to conceal, i literally got broken down to my most bare place, to the place where I wasn't even sure that I wanted to live. Not because of what I had done but because of everything that was being said about me.

  5. Raymond Chandler:

    Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of bar-room vernacular, that is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed but attentive.
