dominate older skaters
1. Why do I only remember "dominate over something"? Once I said "when Japan dominated Korea", which was corrected by a native speaker "dominated over", and it became a streotype for "dominate". But I found "dominate" in a dictionary, and it says only "dominate", so what do you think is the difference between "dominate" and "dominate over"?
2. I have never seen "post" go with "score". Is it common?
10)Kim Yuna: the Best is Yet to Come. She immediately began to dominate older skaters, eventually becoming the youngest female to win the Korean senior national championship at the age of 12. The teen captured the world's attention by winning a series of international competitions, including the 2007 World Championship in Japan, where she posted the highest score ever earned....
Re: dominate older skaters
1. 'Dominate' is a transitive verb taking a direct object, meaning 'to impose one's will or superiority over', so an extra 'over' is redundant.
2. Sports writers commonly use the expression 'post a score'.
