To catch a cold. To have a cold.
Would you be kind enough to confirm my allegation that there is a considerable difference between the meanings of the following at first sight similar phrases?
To catch a cold.
To have a cold.
I think I have good reason to utter the stated above on the basis of the parsing of following sentence:
“When I have a cold the person who is living with me will catch a cold also.”
Thank you for your efforts.
