    empty?

    What am I going to say if I want to say consuming all that is in the bottle. Could I say "empty the bottle"? Will this be applied to food also? Like, empty the plate. How about consuming only half of it?

    Thanks.

    Hi hlbert03,

    "Empty the bottle" is OK

    But I would say "Finish your plate"

    If you want one not to drink the entire bottle you could say;

    "Only drink half of it"

    How about saying "finish your drink"? Is this ok? Also, does it mean that "finish it" means consume all? Unless of course saying consume only have of it. Am I right?

    Finish your drink is OK too and it means he can drink all of it.
