"Comes to call, close to call, rule vs. reign" might be subtle
just recently i have met words "comes to call", often can be heard in songs or be a part of a headline. Relating to the previous, "come to call".
I have found one in a book as :
" Nixon saw the race as still too close to call".
Feel , Robbie Williams
"I know that life wont break me
when I come to call she wont forsake me
I’m loving angels instead"
also a headline:
"Dick Cheney Comes To Call"
the second question: rule vs. reign
" Ike(Eisenhower) had long been sensitive to suggestions that he had reigned rather than ruled."
thanx in adv.
Re: "Comes to call, close to call, rule vs. reign" might be subtle
'too close to call' = too narrow a margin to declare or discern a winner.
'to come to call' = to visit at another's home.
'to reign' = to hold the position of monarch
'to rule' = to command
