    Re: tide is high

    Almost the same "The tide is high" is descriptive of the state of the sea. High tide is the time when the sea is in that state.

    Re: tide is high

    'The tide is high,' and 'high tide' mean the same thing (except of course that the first is a complete sentence while the second is a phrase describing the state of the tide).

    Also, 'the tide is high' can be used figuratively to mean that it is a prosperous and/or propitious time; that things are going very well.


    All best wishes,

    Petra
