Topic: judge someone by/on something
Posted: Friday, May 31, 2019 12:15:33 PM
- judge someone by something
- judge someone on something
I think that these two mean the same thing. Is the second one used only in American English?

You should not judge people by their appearance.

You shouldn't judge people on their appearance.


たいていの人はほんとうになにがほしいのか、心の中でわかっています。人生の目標を教えてくれるのは直感だけ。ただ、それに耳を傾けない人が多すぎるのです。

Which syllable do you stress in 'enthusiastic'?

In this video, Lucy stressed the second syllable.

talk someone's ear off
to talk to someone endlessly; to bore someone with too much talk.
My aunt always talks my ear off when she comes to visit.
Stay away from Mr. Jones. He will talk your ear off if he gets a chance.


Do British English speakers say "talk someone's head off" instead?

Thank you for the reply, FounDit.

Cathy: How come you look so sad, Emma?
Emma: I broke it off with Mike yesterday. / I broke up with Mike yesterday.

Are both correct?

8. I've decided to break it off with her.

Is the phrasal verb "break off" always used with "it"?

Topic: make up for lost time
Posted: Monday, May 20, 2019 2:31:44 AM
Is it possible to say "make up for one's lost time" to mean "make up for lost time"?

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ja/dictionary/english/make-up-for-lost-time
make up for lost time
​to enjoy an experience as much as possible because you did not have the opportunity to do it earlier in life:
I didn't travel much in my twenties but I'm certainly making up for lost time now.

--> ... I'm certainly making up for my lost time now.
How does this sound?
