    Make or Do

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have searched the web , however, I could not find a list of DOs and MAKEs.
    I am in need of a list rather than meanings such as a list of irregular verbs. To extent I can say , do a favor not make a favor but make a cake not do a cake.
    Yours faithfully.

    The main difference is:

    make = create something
    do = perform an action.

    Re: Make or Do

    Here are some (some of them pretty specialized, and a few strictly Br E I think). They mostly follow Mike's rule. If you're only going to learn one thing, learn that
