    Re: grammar

    I stand up [from sitting in a chair] and stand beside my friend

    Here > stand up = "rise to my feet"; stand = be in an upright position.

    I tidy up my bedroom so it is tidy when my mother comes. She is always telling me that I must tidy my room.

    "Tidy up" = put things into place
    Tidy = adjective = arranged neatly
    I tidy = make tidy
