Student or Learner
Can you tell us the differences between the following two sentences?
He turned to look at Kim.
He turned around to look at Kim.
(The second sentence is originally from Longman. The first one is adapted from the original one, which from my experience is right.)
Thanks and Regards
Thanks for your reply. Do you mean that the meanings almost the same? But what I would like to know is the difference caused by the added " around". Can I understand this way? Wihout the around, we are only told that the person move, not knowing how much the person moved, 45°, 50°or something like that. But with the around added, we are sure that the person has made nearly 360°in turn as from Longman one of the definition of around is "moving in a circle"
If you turn to look at someone, you might only move your head. If you turn around to look at someone, I would expect you to move almost your entire body, moving perhaps 180 degrees.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
