    is tolerated in

    tolerated in = tolerate ??

    Interval exercise is well tolerated in people with chronic lung disease
    The British are apparently still America’s friends, and the U.S. government is tolerated in France


    What does the phrase mean?

    No, not "in". Look at "is". Define tolerate and then put the "is" in front.

    [Interval exercise is well tolerated][in people with chronic lung disease].
    The British are apparently still America’s friends, and [the U.S. government is tolerated][in France].


    What does the phrase mean?
    In those two phrases, "in" is not connected to "tolerated". The word "in" is a preposition and it introduces a prepositional phrase.

    Please place a period (full stop) at the end of a sentence.

    Since my father suffers from the same, unfortunately incurable, disease, I thought I might be of help and explain it to you - in simple terms, interval exercise is a kind of physical activity that helps with breathing, without too much strain put on their already struggling bodies, especially the lungs which tend to be deposited with a lot of mucus. Such exercise revilatises the body and patients can bear (i.e. tolerate) it efficiently (i.e. well).

    Re: is tolerated in

    Thank you all.

    I'm still confused why is "in" than rather "for" or "to".



    Math is a little bit difficult for me.
    For me, I would rather think of the matter in an optimistic way.

    So, I think there should be:
    Interval exercise is well tolerated for/to people with chronic lung disease.
    The British are apparently still America’s friends, and the U.S. government is tolerated for/to France.

    You could use "is tolerated by people", "is tolerated by France".
    But "is tolerated for/to" are not grammatical. Why do you think they should be?

    Re: is tolerated in

    Yes, there should be by.
    for/to is wrong.
    thank you.

    I don't know. Some sentence I saw occurs my brain.


    Though 'by' is the best here, I want to know if 'in France' means 'in French eyes'.

    "In France" means "in the country of France". The implication is "by the French people".
