Dear Mr. Yeung,

What is the Chinese translation of 春茗?

Can we say "Spring Lunch" if we eat in lunch time?

There is no equivalent concept in Western society , therefore there is no such term in English .

Dear Mr. Yeung,

I would like to know the difference between "sue" and "prosecute". As I remember, my previous English teacher said that "sue" is used in a civil case while "prosecute" is used in a criminal case, ie."prosecute" is used by the government, police or someone with authority only, is that true?

I have looked up the meaning of these two words in Cobuild English
Dictionary for Advanced Learners:Prosecute: If the authorities prosecute someone, they charge them with a crime and put them on trial. Sue: If you sue someone, you start a legal case against them, usually in order to claim money from them because they have harmed you in some way.

It seems that what my teacher said is true, but I still find that some
people use "prosecute" in dispute between two companies, eg. "As for the lost , if any, caused by the goods to our company, we reserve the right to prosecute.".

Would you please tell me the difference, thanks!

Best regards,
Theresa Au

 

 

' Sue ' for civil case
' prosecute ' for criminal case
As to your last quoted sentence , who said it ? Was it by a scholar , by a lawyer , or just anybody ? A lot of people use the wrong words.

Dear Mr Yang,

Would you please tell me what is the difference between Final English
Assessment and English Final Assessment?

What do we ususally use when setting the assessment paper?

Thanks a lot

Sabrina

 

The first says it is a final appeal
The second says the court itself is final - no more court after this one!
