    Default some questions

    Hi there,

    Could someone tell me the difference between "related with" and "related to", would be right to say "An interest in reading is closely related with how much your parents read to you as a child"?

    Is it correct to say "interfere in", e.g: "Lack of sleep can seriously interfere with your ability to think rationally"?

    Is it "do or make mistake/question"?

    Is it true that Americans say "oh my goodness" and British "oh my god" instead?

    How do you call the action of blowing when you are bored or fed up? Is it sighting?

    Thanks

    3. Lack of sleep can seriously interfere with your ability to think rationally. interfere with something

    4. Lack of sleep can seriously interfere in your ability to think rationally. interfere in your doing something
