    I'm guessing the meaning vs I recognize this expression and I'm guessing the meaning?

    Hello
    What is the differences between " I'm guessing the meaning." And " I recognize this expression and I'm guessing the meaning.'?

    I've corrected your title as you've spelt 'guess/guessing' wrong every time. You can use Edit Post to correct the others.

    The difference is that the second sentence gives more information.

    Thanks
    Does recognize here mean 'know', understand" ?

    I think you have seen/heard the expression before but don't know the meaning.

    That doesn't apply to a different context like 'I recognize this expression, and I can use it'.
