    cap or cover

    Regarding baby bottles, is it cap or cover? We've been using cover, and I'm afraid we might have taught our child wrong! He's already so used to the term, how do you undo it?

    Can someone please check the following if they're correct?

    Manhole = cover
    Pen = cap
    Marker = cap
    Pot / Pan = lid
    Drinking bottle (ignore the small image on the right) = cover

    Drinking bottle (twistable) = cap



    Jar (see image) = cover

    Baby milk powder container (see image) = cap

    Re: cap or cover

    I have a follow up question. I don't know if I should create a new thread for this, but it's related.

    Regarding baby bottles, do you Cover the bottle, or do you Replace the cap?

    Re: cap or cover

    Jars and containers have "lids." I am not sure where you got "cover" from. Bottles have "caps."

    Put the cap back on.

    Don't worry so much! Just start using the word "cap" from now on and he'll start using it too.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
