O’Clock

The phrase "o'clock" comes from the meaning ‘of the clock’ and is used when you are referencing time on the hour. It works for every hour on the clock, am and pm, but cannot be used when including minutes.

Example: I have a dentist appointment at 2 o'clock.

Hello dear friends,
This post is going to answer the above mentioned question briefly...

As you know, in communication (orally and written) every thing depends on the meaning of messages; so, what in here I'm going to say is that it's important to decide which words or phrases are needed to be chosen and used in order to reach the intended meaning.

Ok! Now let's get back to our question...

When are we supposed to use "purpose" , "goal" , "target"?

  1. Purpose:
* When you want to explain about why you do something or why something exists:
-Ex: The purpose of the research is to try and find out more about the causes of the disease.

       2.  Goal:

* in sports:
- Ex1:Black kicked the ball towards the goal.
-Ex2: Only one goal was scored in the entire match.

* an aim or purpose:
- Ex:Our goal is for the country to be fully independent within two years.

       3. Target:

* in sports:
-Ex: I had four shots but I didn't even hit the target.
* an aim: a level or situation which you intend to achieve:
- Ex:The government's target of 3.5% annual growth seems easily attainable.
* as a verb:to direct advertising, criticism or a product at someone:
- Ex:The paper is targeted specifically at young people.


PS:
The idea of this post belongs to my dear friend Mohammad...

Probably you may have asked yourself such question [What is the difference between 'test', 'exam' and 'quiz'?]...
or you may have the experience of using these words interchangeably...!
but the fact is:

an Exam or Examination is
 "  a written, spoken or particular test of what you know or can do:
    - Final exam/ mid-term exam;
      - entrance exam;
        - oral exam;
          - biology exam;
...\".

a quiz is "
      1- a short spoken or written test that is often taken without preparation:
          . pop quiz [A short test given to students without prior warning];

      2- a set of questions about a particular subject that people try to answer as a game or competition".
      

a test is "
      1- a set of questions or problems that are designed to measure a person's knowledge, skills, or abilities:
         . history test;
          . driving test;
           . IQ test.

       2- a careful study of a part of the body or of a substance taken from the body:
         .drug test;
          . pregnancy test".

******************************************
Test vs. Exam

- 'Tests' are to check your knowledge on the subject;
- a 'test' sums up what you've just learned;
- a 'test' sounds shorter and less important
- an 'exam' summarizes everything you've learned that semester

  "A test is usually on a certain topic while exams are focused on the entire semesters work. Also exams are, most of the time, worth a lot more in terms of contribution to the year's work as opposed to tests".

******************************************
Thanks to my dear friend, Mohammad, for asking this question.

1 Travel for Journey.

Don't say: Our travel to Wales was lovely.

Say: Our journey to Wales was lovely.

Travel is a verb while journey is a noun.


2 Customer and Client.

(a) Customer.

Don't say: That grocer has plenty of clients.

Say: That grocer has plenty of customers.

(b) Client.

Don't say: That lawyer has plenty of customers.

Say: That lawyer has plenty of clients.

A person can be a customer at a shop, but a client of a lawyer, a bank, etc.


3 Sick or Ill.

Don't say: He's been sick for over a year.

Say: He's been ill for over a year.

To be ill means to be in bad health. To be sick means to vomit().


4 So and Such.

(a) So.

Don't say: It's such small that you can't see it.

Say: It's so small that you can't see it.

(b) Such.

Don't say: I've never seen a so large animal before.

Say: I've never seen such a large animal before.

So is an adverb, and must qualify an adjective or another adverb. Such is an adjective, and must qualify a noun.


5 Accept for Agree.

Don't say: the teacher accepted to go with us.

Say: The teacher agreed to go with us.

Accept means to take something that is offered to you or to believe something you're told. Agree to means to do what one is asked to do, but agree with means to have the same opinion as someone else.
