    What does 'cover' mean? Does it mean 'blanket'?

    Do you mean to ask, What are covers? If so, covers is another word for blanket(s). They cover you.

    Thanks, Casiopea

    "Covers" means 'blanket' or 'blankets'. So it is always "covers", not "cover". Am I right?

    I think we sleep under the cover(blanket). How do you sleep inside the cover? Can you give me the details?

    Between the sheet or the covers. The sheets or covers are tucked in, under the mattress. There's a inside.
