How to use rattling in a sentence?

  1. Peter Shirlow:

    I'm not saying there won't be some sporadic violence, but simply we no longer have the conditions of 1968. During each crisis, people have sabre-rattling and said we will fall back into the past, I have never seen any evidence of that.

  2. Trevor Moffat:

    It sounded like a big tractor trailer passing by the road, rattling and shaking, guttural rumbling. ... We left everything there, grabbed my kid, my dog, got in the car with my wife, all the neighbors were outside, a lot of young people crying. Armageddon type reaction.

  3. Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Paul Clifford:

    It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents--except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.

  4. Peter Lowman:

    After a lot of sabre-rattling, we are seeing Shanghai suffering a lot more than Wall Street, so clearly the first round (of trade war) has been won by America. Unfortunately, that then overflows into emerging markets and Europe, so it's not a pretty time for investors.

  5. Teacher Saimoni Nainoca:

    We never thought the storm was going to be as bad as it was. This was a roaring and damaging cyclone, the roof was rattling like a machine-gun. It was like a battlefield.
