    Loss time VS Lost time

    Is there any difference btw the words "loss time" and "lost time"?

    In addition, is the meaning of "Make up for loss time" VS "Make up for lost time" the same?

    Re: Loss time VS Lost time

    In the US, I'd say only "lost time." Time that you were not working but supposed to be at work.

    Re: Loss time VS Lost time

    We sometimes try to make up for lost time.
