    No, it has no connection whatsoever to "in other words"

    "A" is correct. eg London is located in England.

    "B" can also be corrected : London, located in England is blah blah blah...

    "C" can also be correct: London locates USA on the world map and is proud of herself. (In this case, London is the name of a girl )

    I think I get what you meant now...

    You are actually using wrong punctuation, thats why I got confused...

    What you're trying to say is:

    Please Zedeneye1, Will you put the expression "in some sense", in sentences?


    Answer:

    Here are some examples :

    1. Communism is similar to socialism in some sense, although they have their differences.

    2. Playing Need for Speed can improve your driving skills in some sense.

    So basically "in some sense" can be used as a replacement for "in some way(s)" at most occasions.

    No, I come from Saudi Arabia and I do live in Jeddah. Regarding whether I plan to go abroad or not. No one knows what the future hides for him/her. However, if I get a chance studying in UK, I will not hesitate.

    Why do English people overuse the table in different situations?
    Examples:
    Sitting around the table for discussion
    Put food on the table
    To turn the table against someone

    It is not just English, many languages are the same (I also speak Irish and it's the same), all nouns must have an article and in English the definite article 'the' is most used.

    To "turn the tables against someone" This is an expression which I think you will have more difficulty understanding.


    Let us say that you and I are playing cards. You put a good card down, so you are winning. I then put a better card down, and now I am winning. I have "turned the tables" against you. You could also say "Turned the tides against you"

    It's not a proper sentence really, it's just an English saying.


    edit: I've found where this saying comes from, it's from old games where you would play on a table. If you reverse your position, it's just like turning the table around, so you are in the winners position!

    Thanks a lot! Surely it is not difficult for me since I do come here for the sake of knowledge. I need you to help me and I will do my part to perceive it. Again, I do owe a lot to you!
