She tried to say something else, but the words caught in her throat.
The voice was low and male, the words hard to catch.
The word caught in my mind; I went to bed, and it was still there.
Her words caught me off guard, and before I could speak, she went on.
She wanted to say more, but the words caught in her throat.
The words caught in his throat even as he said them.
She said it as if the words might catch fire in her mouth.
His words caught at her heart in a way that was a warning.
But the words caught at her heart, foreign though they were.
The last words caught the attention of those who had ignored him.
