    Angry Put On

    books.google.com/books?id=7dLbMvqrLz0C&pg=PA70&dq="put+on+more+wood "&hl=en&sa=X&ei=5MnCT_nkKMq6iwK-r_jsBw&ved=0CD8Q6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q="put on more wood"&f=false

    "While Johnny put on more wood to build up the flames, the younger boy went to the tent to gather rags and a wax candle. "


    books.google.com/books?id=m0VrfvGF3PsC&pg=PA95&dq="put+on+water"&hl =en&sa=X&ei=9MrCT9KKDamUiAL938mMCA&ved=0CGAQ6AEwBg #v=onepage&q="put on water"&f=false

    "In the kitchen, she put on water for tea."

    What is "put on"? Is "put on" in "put on water" and "put on wood" different?

    Re: Put On

    The wood was put on the fire, adding more wood to an already existing fire.

    The water (in a kettle or pot) was put on the stove or some other source of heat to allow it to boil.
