What's up! Is there any difference between shade and shadow? For example: I was in the shade/shadow of his power. Or for example: I sat under shade/shadow of a tree. Thanks!

[STRIKE]What's up![/STRIKE] Nothing's up. Just go ahead and ask your question.

Can you use different words to express the idea you have in mind? The quoted statement doesn't make sense.

I mean that I wanted to say 'Hello', just as respect or greetings to you all as our teachers. I didn't want to know what really would be up, or something else. I heard somewhere you can say "what's up!" instead of "Hello".

Rover_KE,
That made me really laugh. :lol: You might have been so strict and serious teacher who followed specific disciplines while teaching. I like the way you manage this forum.

You would normally be in someone's shadow.
