    a wine bottle vs a bottle of wine

    a wine bottle vs a bottle of wine

    Do we use both in standard English?
    Do they have the same meaning?

    a wine bottle vs a bottle of wine

    Do we use both in standard English? Yes.
    Do they have the same meaning? No. A "wine bottle" is normally used to hold wine, whereas a "bottle of wine" is a bottle with wine in it. In other words, if a wine bottle is empty then it is no longer, or not yet, a bottle of wine.

    tranlam, you told us in this thread that you were asking us to do your homework.

    I asked you to amend your profile to show that you are a student.

    Until you do so we are not going to answer any further questions.
