    Sorry I have so many questions. Do the following sentences have the same meaning? Which one is more commonly used in spoken English?

    He shoved the letter in the drawer.
    He put the letter in the drawer.

    shove suggests a certain amount of force used while placing the letter in the drawer. You would shove the letter when you are mad, upset, possibly trying to hide the letter from someone, etc.
