I have a clarification during my writing in expressing an activity. The sentence would be "sea-shells and conches getting sedimented in that shore usually". I am unsure that the word sediment used sounds natural at this context.

I am also into similar situations in choosing words to the context. Is there a way / reference to deal such issues?

  • I think a simple word such as deposited might be a better choice than sedimented. Feb 26 '14 at 12:02

Well, I'd compose this sentence like this -

The naturally occurring waves sediment the seashells and conchs on the shore

Note that sediment is used as a verb there -

sediment (v) - deposit/settle as sediment
