Words /I can't understand
Message from valoris posted on 22-07-2019 at 12:58:18 (D | E | F)
Hi everybody!
I’d like to give my students the script of a listening activity on 18th century social classes. Can you please help me with the missing words of the transcription I wrote?

“They knew their place in the local hierarchy. _____________ , at least outwardly, towards those above them, pity those below them, and perhaps try against tremendous odds, to rise a __________ higher.”
You’ll find the audio file clicking here: Link
It lasts less than 15 seconds.
Thank you very much!

Hello,
“They knew their place in the local hierarchy,deferred,at least outwardly, towards those above them, pity those below them, and perhaps try against tremendous odds,to rise a notch or two higher.”
Regards.

Hello
The text is in the preterite.
Deferred, pitied, tried.

Thank you so much, matrixhamdi! I hadn’t thought that defer towards could have the same meaning as defer to someone…

Thank you, gerondif ;)

You are most certainly welcome.
As gerondif said, the text is in the preterite: pitied, tried.
Regards.
