First ofF, I really do appreciate your taking the time. However, unfortunately I cannot get what even the foowing mean or wha is its concept, let alone to get my answer. I know my English is poor. Please excuse my being rudeness to ask you several times. Thanks.


It is apparent that the work has been delayed. Now, what are you referring to? Is it something prior to the delay? The answer is "yes". So, it is better to say "cause of". The correct sentence is:

- What is your cause of delay at work? (It could be a power failure or non-availability of appropriate tools or even the absence of a key technician.)

If you are interested in being explained the rationale behind the delay, say: "What is your reason for delaying the work? (Here, the delay was apparently intentional, and the reasons are being sought.)



Moreover, I couldnt at all get what is the difference between cause of and for!

Cause
Rason

Hi everyone

I've been watching a movie staring Tom Hanks where he says" the air got to it", when he was trying to make a fire, as he had't any matches or so on. I am wondering if you use the following? I couldnt find such thing in any dictionary.


Moreover, why didnt he say wind rather than air???

Many thanks

Greetings

I've asked you all a lot of variety questions and most of them have been explained very very well to me. I shall hereby appreciate it.

However, this is a different question!

I am wondering if anyone can contact with me for helping me with grammar and vocabulary through some social networking such as telegram and so on? If so, would you please in privite massage tell me so I can give you my id or number. For sometimes here I have some problems to send some pictures or texts to ask my question in details and get the best answer but those social networking can be of use to me when I can not provide those by this froum.

Thanks all
