How to use canal in a sentence?

  1. Le Cun:

    Then I saw a tiny light in the distance, almost like somebody lit a match, then all the sudden it was on me, it spit me out into the sunlight into this canal and there were tons of fish around. Goliath groupers, tarpons, a bunch of fish that didn't make it.

  2. Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia:

    A moment later I remembered that the young woman having spent five years in Germany, would naturally have learnt the language, but then I heard that when she was rescued from that canal in 1920, she spoke nothing but German – when she spoke at all- which was not often. I readily admit that a ghastly horror experienced in one’s youth can work havoc with one’s memory but I have never heard of any ghastly experience endowing anyone with a knowledge they had not had before it happened. My nieces knew no German at all. Mrs Anderson did not seem to understand a word of Russian or English, the two languages all the four sisters had spoken since babyhood. French came a little later, but German was never spoken in the family.

  3. John Lopez:

    These waterways form a funnel that directed the water into the Industrial Canal.

  4. John Miller:

    In the Suez Canal what we've seen consistently despite unrest that has occurred in Egypt ... (is) a Suez canal that is secure and properly administered.

  5. Skokie Fire Chief Jim Walters:

    I mean it’s murky, it’s murky all the way through, I was told the visibility is about three feet, we encountering the brush on the side of the canal that makes it difficult.
