- For Teachers
I've heard that was spoken by a man having dinner at restaurant:
I want to go with the lemon sole.
1. What is the meaning of go in that context? Is it like start?
2. A word lemon sole was mentioned twice in the conversation but the waiter didn't heard that, and that's why I think the Undefinite Article should be used instead. Am I correct?
I would be grateful if you dear teachers would highlight my mistakes in the post.
Thank you, for yor reply.
go with = choose
(BBC Food Ingredients Board)Lemon sole is a misnomer since it's neither a real sole, nor does it taste of lemon. It's actually a flounder (the family that includes plaice and turbot). It has delicate, sweet white flesh and is best cooked simply, either grilled or fried, and served with a light sauce.
But for your cited note, I would have never got to know that and had to live in ignorance of that fact.
Hadn't he looked at the menu, would he have said I want to go with a/some lemon sole, right?
Please, comment on that.
P.S. There's another issue: I'm not sure about the question part in the conditional sentence I used before. Is it right? Could you please judge.
