Thread: identify

  1. Unregistered


    Hi there,

    I don't understand the meaning of 'identified' in the following sentence. What is the difference if I replace 'became' with 'was'?

    Which saint became identified with Father Christmas?

    Re: identify

    Came to mean the same as/became the person that people know as.

    Was identified may be misunderstood as having been identified in the past but not any more. Became identified is safer.
