    put up

    The meaning of "put up" is highly misused by non native speakers of english. I have seen people using "where are you put up" for "where do you live". From what i know of, put up can be used, in one sense bear with me, and the other sense a put-up job. correct me if i am wrong.

    Regards

    Re: put up

    When someone cans their own fruits or preserves, they often say "put up," as in "I put up six quarts of pickles last season."

    In regards to staying somewhere, we might say "put (someone) up," as in "All the hotels are booked, can you put me up for the night?"
