Interested in Language
I'm watching a US Senate debate on C-SPAN.
They get started to talk, they say "I yield." They end the talks, they say "yield back."
yield & yield back
What do they mean??
Your answer will be appreciated.
Well, what if "I yield myself 30 seconds"? They often say I yield myself xx seconds. And they start to talk.
Does it mean I give myself xx seconds to talk?
