hi, everybody mi name's Esneider and I've a question. Sometimes I get into with some words, especialy when speaking. ok, I'm gonna get to the point, I need to know how to use the verbs take and carry, I hate making silly mistakes so, please help me out.
Thanks in advance
Take means: Take something or somebody with oneself somewhere
e.g. Take these letters to the boss
Carry means: Move while supporting, either in a vehicle or in one's hands or on one's body. e.g. Carry the suitcases to the car
Please notice that often you may interchangeably use the words:
Carry the suitcases to the car
Take the suitcases to the car
Carry the dishes to the table
Take the dishes to the table
Also note: When something is 'small' and emphasis is on 'movement' NOT on weight, you use 'take'. Oppositely, when emphasis is on 'weight', you use carry.
For this reason, (usually) NOT Carry these letters to your boss; rather,
Take these letters to your boss.
