Boo hoo!

Usage Note: Migrate usually indicates a permanent change of settlement when referring to people and implies historical demographic shifts of great magnitude, as in In the 5th century ad the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes began migrating to England. When referring to birds or other animals, migrate usually indicates a seasonal or other temporary change in habitat. Emigrate and immigrate are used only of people and also imply a permanent move, generally across a political boundary. Emigrate describes the move relative to the point of departure: After the Nazis came to power in Germany, many scientists emigrated. Immigrate describes the move relative to the destination: The promise of prosperity here in the United States encouraged many people to immigrate.

Hello respected teachers,


Next day they took the box which had held the necklace and went to the jewellers whose name was inside.


Should it not be "jeweller whose name was"? Can several jewllers have a single name?


Well, I would say that I need further context to determine if the jewellers is one shop or many people working with jewels.


The difference between these words is the spelling. Take a look.

Jeweler (US) / Jeweller (Bre)

A person or company that makes or sells jewels or jewellery.

For example:
‘he is managing director of Britain's biggest jeweller’

I hope I help a bit.

Pray talk sense


Every expression in which sense is has to do with the way the majority of people think that is reasonable or sensible.

For example: Talk sense! There is no way we can afford a new car!
