Hello again Issa,

'advise' is a verb and 'advice' is a noun -- see this dictionary page for a more complete explanation with examples.

Please be sure to check the dictionary when you have questions about words.

Hello,
I’d like to know the difference between “awarded something”, “awarded for”, and “awarded with”.

Regards,
Petals

Hello Petals,

Have you checked the dictionary for example sentences? The Cambridge and Longman dictionaries both have lots of examples that should help you with at least the first two phrases. 'to be awarded with X' means the same thing as 'to be awarded X'.

Thanks Kirk, just one more question. Is there a difference between support of or support for ( an idea/person) ?

Hi Petals,

I'm afraid it's difficult to give you an accurate general answer to this question, as it depends on the nature of the phrase that comes after it. Is there a specific sentence you had in mind?

All the best,

Yes, the group is known for its support of/for gender equality. Please tell me the difference.

Hello Petals,

In this context there is no difference and both are commonly used. In some contexts there is a difference. For example:

 

Support of other groups is important to us. [= the other groups support us]

 

Support for other groups is important for us. [= we support other groups]

 

Best wishes,

Hello Team

I also want to know the difference between the usage of the following words:
sleep asleep
wait await
til until
when while
which that

though although despite

Hi Kirk and Peter,
This sounds bit obvious but I have small confusion during the conversation, if I don't understand something what other person is saying, which one is the correct way to say "I don't get it" or "I didn't get it?".

Regards,
Kiran
