Book

If this isn’t confusing…I don’t know what is! These are all legitimate sentences. If you don’t know why the meanings are different…look them up…

My theory…and yes…I’m passing the blame…is because American English is a combination of so many other languages and cultures.

Have fun and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!
