    What's the difference between 'I bought a cheap wine' and 'I hate cheap wine'?

    Re: A cheap wine vs cheap wine

    The first refers to the fact that you bought it (you paid for it). The second describes how you feel about it.

    Those are strange sentences to compare. Did you think they could possibly mean the same thing?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: A cheap wine vs cheap wine

    If you say "I bought a cheap wine" that means you bought a bottle of wine that wasn't very expensive. If you say "I hate cheap wine", well, do you know what the word "hate" means?
