I have two questions. I'd like to know if to say that something has cropped up and we have to put our meeting off I can use also the expressions : "due to a hitch", "due to a mishap" and "due to a setback". If not, way? what is the difference?
The second one is; If I'm talking about a spoiled child is more correct to say that "he has a tantrum" or that "he makes a fit"?
Thanks a lot
You can use all those expressions to say something has come up. A hitch and a setback are the same thing, but a mishap is different. It's one kind of setback. It implies that there was an accident of some kind.
"Has a tantrum" is good, but we wouldn't say "makes a fit." "Has a fit" is good. We also throw fits and throw tantrums.
