1 I was, so to speak, numbered with the dead.
2 The thing looked as dead as the carcass of some animal.
3 'He is dead,' murmured the fellow, immensely impressed.
4 You couldn't imagine a more deadly place for a shipwreck.
5 Long afterwards the news came that all the donkeys were dead.
6 I knew once a Scotch sailmaker who was certain, dead sure, there were people in Mars.
7 The three red chaps had fallen flat, face down on the shore, as though they had been shot dead.

9 Now and then a carrier dead in harness, at rest in the long grass near the path, with an empty water-gourd and his long staff lying by his side.
10 He had been a very second-rate helmsman while alive, but now he was dead he might have become a first-class temptation, and possibly cause some startling trouble.
