Dear Yang Sir,

We all know we should say " work experience " but not working experience.
However, how about "waiting list" or "wait list" which we can see peopleusing now & then? Are there any other words with similar conditions which weneed to take note?
Thanx.

Gigi

 

Dear Gigi,

The best answer i can give is: it is a matter of English usage.
E.g. eating habits, looking glass, swimming suit, working tools, writing skills, flying saucer.

Dear Mr. Yang,

I have some confuse in English grammar and would you mind answering my questions?
What is the difference between see and look? And how about the difference between hear and listen?
Look forward to your reply.
Thank you very much

Jason Ho

 

Dear Jason,

"To see"is just seeing without really or intentionally looking.
E.g. you see a car, a cat, a tree, a cloud--- without paying attention to it.

"To look"is to pay attention and first see , and then look carefully or
intentionally.
E.g. I saw the lady. She was so pretty that i look at her again.

I saw the car there . I went over to look at : the cause it is the latest model

Mr Yang,

Why can't I use "to" in the following way?

"Answers in textbooks need not to be correct."

I was told that the correct one should not include "to". But in many similarstructures, "to" is used.

Is the word 'need' an exception? If it does, is there any other example?

Thanks a lot~

Simon

 

Dear Simon,

E.g.
- need to be correct
-no need to be correct
- the teacher requires you to work hard.
- the wheel need to be strong

i think it is usage again.
If there are rules which are applicable.I do not know them!

Dear Mr. Yang,

Hi, Sir Yang, I came across this word in the sign board of an organization. The word is "cum" which I think means "and". I tried to look it up in the dictionary to further understand it better but I failed to locate the word. So could you kindly enlighten me the actual meaning of this word and where it derives from? Thank you very much, and please do correct me if there is any mistakes what so ever in this mail.

Best regards,

Stephen

 

 

Dear Stephen,

See Oxford Carried Dictionary "Cum" is a preposition, meaning "with", "combined with". Eg. A bedroom-cum-study.
