I often use the fridge to catch things like milk and the microwave to heat them. Then I use the sponge and the sink to wash the cup. I also use dish, fork, spoon and knife.

The most thing I use in the kitchen is the fried pan and oven, because i like cook. In sauce pan I make pastas. The most thing I don't like is sponge, so I often use dishwasher.

Dear Sir
Thank you for answering about the apostrophe. Now I need your help to clarify this.
in many countries in the world people use 'O K' specially in English speaking countries
It means 'all right / every thing in order so my question is 'what is O and K stand for
a few decades ago I heard over the radio: O stand for 'ola and K stand for kala
meaning 'all in order' or some thing similar. The language is Greece used by the crew to say to their skipper all in order 'ola kala' so 'ok' was formed like that.
Please let me know whether what I heard is correct or not. Since I am very keen to
know what I heard is correct.
Thank you.

Hello Andrew international,

The answer is that nobody knows for sure how the phrase originated. There are many theories, ranging from an inversion of KO (as in 'knockout') to a corruption of the military phrase 'all clear', to a slogan from an American presidental campaign by President Van Buren in the nineteenth century. If you seach the Internet for 'OK origin' then you'll see many different theories.

Dear Sir
This is regarding the apostrophe: it is used for a missing letter one or more. I am I correct?
For example we can say 2 o' clock I think the 'apostrophe' is standing for four letters
Namely 'f t h e' meaning '2 of the clock' but I am not sure.
I am I correct? Please let me know..
Thank you.

Hello Andrew international,

That is correct. The apostrophe replaces one or more missing letters, though often the original form is so old that it is no longer used at all. As you say, o'clock is a shortened form of of the clock.

Even the possessive form 's is a shortened form of the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) form es, though few people know this today!
