Reply to "Use of word "Spirit""

Considering current lockdown situation which prevents you from clubbing is the following sentence correct?

"I want to dance. Even my spirit is dancing within".

Is the usage of the word "Spirit" correct?

Hi, Angelica—The "sentence" you have asked about is actually two sentences. There is a period at the end of the first sentence. The second sentence begins with "Even." Those two sentences are OK, though the use of "Even" is a bit awkward. I recommend deleting "Even":

  • I want to dance. My spirit is dancing within.

The problematic sentence is the one you used to ask your question: "Considering current lockdown situation which prevents you from clubbing is the following sentence correct?" You need "the" before "current lockdown situation" and a comma at each end of "which prevents you from clubbing." I also recommend changing "you" to "people" and adding "going" before "clubbing":

  • Considering the current lockdown situation, which prevents people from going clubbing, is the following sentence correct?
