Do For Emphasis
I do so like it when people ask me to make an interesting video. I did enjoy receiving a request from Rustam from Azerbaijan. This Daily Dose of English demonstrates how we use the verb "do" to add emphasis, and shows how intonation is important in showing meaning, too.
Many people wear glasses and many more will as they get older. This has happened to me, and I wanted to share with you some of the language we use with the wearing of glasses.
A lot of humour in English comes from the way words can mean more than one thing, or the way that words can seem to change their meaning depending on their pronunciation. This Daily Dose of English shows how this happens in an old joke about Alaska.
Cloth, clothes, or clothing, suit or dress, verb or noun? These are words that typically confuse students. This Daily Dose of English aims to make them less confusing to all.
