You really should look up the word "loom" in the WR dictionary (at the top of this page). There are three definitions for the verb, and the third suggests a threatening or menacing presence.courtney w,
you kept me thinking...
in what context would it be menacing?
No, that wouldn't make a lot of sense to say it that way. You could say something to the effect of, "Laura was in the midst of cheating on Ian, when she looked up and saw him looming there in the doorway."Thanks anothersmith, but before I posted the thread I already looked for it. The thing is that it's difficult to grasp idiomatic uses for me. For instance in the dictonary says loom could be used as:
"come into view indistinctly"
And for me emerge from somewhere could have meaned that (as other dictionaries sayid about loom)
That's why I was a bit confused.
But anyway, Could I use loom under this circumnstance?
He loomed through the door and caught his wife cheating on him...
I mean this could be a certain type of menacing appeareance?
