R.hi there. my post has been removed 2 times: I'd appreciate if you answer my question:
When I say, 'I sleep at ten on weekdays' I mean that I go to sleep at 10 pm . whats wrong with this sentence???
sb here said that its incorrect and I should sayI sleep until ten on weekdays but I think both can be correct on its own context.
Your posts are still on my server. Here is my response from yesterday
Sleep is an ongoing activity. You 'go to sleep' or you 'fall asleep' at 10pm. You sleep from 10pm to 6am.
'Sleep' as a verb does not mean 'go to sleep'.
Other languages have different verbs for 'sleep' and 'falling asleep'. For example in Italian, dormire means to sleep; addormentarsi means 'to fall asleep'. English does not have a separate verb, but you still can't use 'sleep' for 'going to sleep'.
The same applies to 'work'
I work at 9am every morning. - Wrong
'Work' as a verb does not mean 'start working'. You start work at 9am, or you 'start to work' or you 'start working'.
moreover are these sentences correct:
1- I made an apology( to or from) John to is acceptable, but not from
2- I apologized John. No
3- I apologized to John. Yes, this is the way you should say it.
4- Jim made a criticism Yes.
5- Jim offered a criticism Yes.
