Quick note -

In American English, what the British call a "vest" is an "undershirt", while a "vest" is the third piece of a three-piece suit (British "waistcoat").



Thank you for the clarification.
I thought something was odd, and then thought British must use it differently than I know.

Thank you Found it.

It is a bit difficult to clarify the difference between all three. So can I ask examples you and others would normally use for all three types?

Do you ever say "A warn"?
If so. How and in what context would you say this?
And why would you say "A warning" instead of "A warn"?

1. I can use cleaning.
2. I can use cleaning as my cardio.

Do both make sense to you? Then, what is #1 meaning?
Topic: A rumbling

1. Can you hear a rumble?
2. Can you hear a rumbling?
3. Can you hear rumbling?

A rumble and a rumbling, how do they differ?
And as in 3, if the sentence could be correct; if so, what does it mean without an article?

Thank you Romany, for your concern and everything. And I can see that how you might feel as I am also a grown up with a brain that is not less than others. But what is so blocking me completely that even a child can get but i can't?
Must I have learned it wrongly too early and too long? It's all tangled up in a way that I can't build a new bowl, but patching up is all my brain can do.
I am learning French and I can see how easily my brain coincide with ideas and the new language. But with English my brain just can't get brake through.

Be patient and help me as you used to have been. I might have to live like this until I die, but there is something that won't let me give up.

I don't like this kind of conversion but since you helped a lot. It's useless to talk but I like Drag0nspeaker's attitude. He just helps with all his might, even he doesn't like the person much and even he has to say thousand times.

However, Thank you anyway.

Topic: Underpants

Thank you everyone.

Then what is the correct answer?
1. You don't use underwear to refer underpants since underwear refers to many?
2. So you don't use the pronoun, it, to refer the garment that goes to your bottom?

Underpants are also called underwear which is singluar. Then do you use the singluar pronoun to refer them or it too?

2. Put the underpants (them) on.
