    Until or till

    What is the difference between until and till?
    Where do we use each of them?
    Witch is preposition and witch is conjunction?
    Thanks!

    "Till", which should be written 'til is a shortened form of "until", they have the same meaning.

    A witch is a woman who practices sorcery. If it were, let's say, on your job application, you would be one of the first applicants whose names would be crossed off.

    Depends on the job. Maybe casting spells is part of the job description.

    Re: Until or till

    Speaking of witch, I've long been wondering what is the difference between (or among whatever) a mage, a magician, a sorcerer, and a wizard

    As far as I know they are all alternative names for the same thing.

    Maybe you should correct stanst's 2nd post instead of discussing witches
    (Just some advice. - please don't take it as an offense )

    I'll try it:

    However, I'm not sure if "has been" is correct anyway, because the question was answered.

    Cheers!

    "An offence" not "an offense", unless you are American.
