    Default 4 simple questions..pls help.

    1. "The water in the swimming pool is deep" or "The swimmming pool is deep" which one?

    2. We can say, " I miss you" but can we also say " I'm missing you"
    What's the difference?

    3. Situation: I'm at the mall and waiting for the driver to pick me up and the driver should be here by now but he's not here yet so I decided to call him up, the driver said, i'm on my way and I wanna know how long will it take him to get where i am, what can I say " How much long?" ( 5minutes, ten? ")

    4. I usually see " I telephoned to my father" obviously, it's "I called my father"but I know we can use the "telephone as a verb", in that case, should the preposition be there, thus "telephone to"


    thanks!

    How much longer will you be, 5 minutes, 10 minutes

    Telephone without the 'to' or phone without the 'to'
