Student or Learner
I saw two phrases, go wild and run wild. I want to know if there is any difference between the meaning of them too, and if there is, then what kind of difference?
Would you help?
After reading the above, I would go for 'went'.
Not a teacher.
I agree with Matthew. You can let your imagination run wild, and plants, animals and children can run wild if they grow up without control or discipline.
But Matthew went with 'went'. I would also use "run wild".
If someone "went wild", I might assume they had an angry outburst.
Exactly. That nails the connotational difference. "Go wild" is usually mild. "Run wild" is sometimes severe.Originally posted by MikeNewYork:
It could also mean shopped with reckless abandon.

Please use "Reply with quote" if you want to quote another poster's words. That makes it clear that it is a quote from another response rather than perhaps something you found somewhere else. It also attributes the quote to the relevant poster.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
