Doubt or Question?
Many English learners confuse the nouns ‘doubt’ and ‘question’.
A ‘question’ is something you ask when you want to find out information.
‘Can you answer my question?’
‘Does anyone have any questions?’
The noun ‘doubt’ describes a feeling of not being sure about something.
‘I have doubts about my ability to pass the test.’
‘I never had any doubt you could do it.’
So if you have ‘doubts’ it means you feel uncertain.
If you have ‘a question’, it means you want to ask something in order to find out more information.

"Chip on Your Shoulder" – Idiom Origin

This saying is used today if a person is looking for an argument or holding a grudge and provokes a physical challenge. We say he has a chip on his shoulder. Someone who remains upset over problems they’ve experienced in the past. A person who seems angry all the time because they think they have been treated unfairly or have a self-righteous feeling of oppression or inferiority.

Some say it came from an American game in the 1800’s that kids would play called “Chip on Your Shoulder” and it is also said to have been recorded when two boys were determined to fight. A chip of wood was placed on one’s shoulder and the other had to knock it off. When the chip was knocked off, the fight began.Similar to Medieval times when a knight would throw down his gauntlet and if the opponent picked it up the challenge was accepted and the fight began.
The chip is now a figure of speech, but the idea is the same.

It is easy for a person to get into a fight when they are already angry about something else, or when they already have a chip on their shoulder.

People vs. Persons

Khi bước vào thang máy có khi nào bạn tự hỏi với cách dùng từ: 450kg 6 persons của họ? Thông thường thì chung ta chỉ dùng people cho số nhiều, person cho số ít. Nhưng đôi khi persons cũng được sử dụng, đặc biệt là trong kỹ thuật nâng vận chuyển như thang máy.

Ever wondered the usage of the word "persons" when you're in a lift? We commonly only use people if there are more than one of them (people); And person is for one n only. Tho sometimes you can also find out the usage of "persons" somewhere, especially in delivering engineering.

dailywritingtips.com What’s the difference between people and persons? The fast-and-loose answer is that people is correct and persons is wrong; the former word has supplanted the

That "queueue" though

Do you get this joke? LOL

This is a common mistake because, for many verbs, the past tense form looks the same as the perfect form.
Consider a regular verb like "to cook"—
I cook. (present simple)
I cooked. (past simple)
I have cooked. (present perfect)
Past and perfect look the same. However, irregular verbs like "to see", "to do," and "to be" have different words for each form.

An "oxymoron" is a figure of speech that puts seemingly contradictory words next to one another—often to confusing or entertaining effect.
What is your favorite oxymoron?
