    Default put out

    Hello,



    I don't know if you have ever listened to this tongue twister, but, anyway, who can tell me a synomym for "put out"?
    "Whether the weather is warm, whether the weather is hot, we have to put out with the weather, whether we like it or not".

    Thank you very much.

    It should be "put up with".

    "to put out" means "to make an effort", among other things.

    It should read:

    Whether the weather be cold,
    Or whether the weather be hot,
    Whether the weather be wet,
    Or whether the weather be not,
    We'll weather the weather,
    Whatever the weather,
    Whether we like it or not.

    ONLY A NON-TEACHER'S OPINION


    (1) CAREFUL!!! "Put out" can mean many things.

    (a) The firemen put out the fire. (No problem in understanding.)

    (b) I don't want to put you out. = I don't want to cause any inconvenience .

    (i) Tom: Why don't you stay at our home instead of going to a hotel?

    Joe: Are you sure? I don't want to put you out.

    Tom: No problem. We have a spare bedroom now that Mona has left for college.

    (c) SUPER CAREFUL! (I have to be super careful, but since this is a language

    website, I think that I can give this example if I am v-e-r-y careful!)

    Mr. X: I hear you have a date with Y this evening.

    Mr. Z: Thanks right. I wonder if she will let me kiss her on our first date.

    (Mr. X laughs and laughs and laughs.)

    Mr. Z: Hey, man, why are you laughing like that?

    Mr. X: Because Y likes to put out.

    Mr. Z: Oh, I didn't know that she was that kind of girl!
