    Re: face value

    Hello Unreg.,

    "To take something at face value" is a metaphor from money. The "face value" of a coin or banknote is the value that is stamped or printed on it. Therefore the face value of a £1 coin is £1.

    If you "take something at face value", you accept its apparent value. The phrase is often applied to statements.

    Thus if you say "I live in Venezuela", and I believe you, I have taken your statement at face value.

    Now try to compose some examples of your own – if you post them here, someone will check them for you.

    All the best,
