    I know that this sentence isn't grammatically correct and sounds awful but I really can't think of another way to express what I want to say:

    Through the use of the word “heavy” Achebe evokes the sense of touch and through the use of the word “odors” he evokes the sense of smell - both of which work together to help the reader better envision the harsh conditions of the refugee camp.

    Help would be appreciated greatly. Thank you so much!

    Achebe uses the words 'heavy' and 'odor' to evoke the senses of touch and smell respectively. In conjunction with one another, these words assist the reader to better envision the harsh conditions of the refugee camp.

“Yanny” or “Laurel”
