Hi,I have been trying to see the difference between the use of simple past for "past habits" and that of "used to".
What I mean is whether they can be used in place of each other without losing any shade of meaning.
Comment on the following sentences in this respect.
Are there any differences between them in terms of meaning or use?
1)We visited our uncle every summer.
2)We used to visit our uncle.
The first one acquires the hint or underlying meaning of "not going on" or not?
"We used to visit him but not any longer."
"We used to visit him and still do it.
In other words does it behave just like "used to",if not ,why not?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
