Topic: worn out/worn
Posted: Saturday, July 11, 2020 10:10:39 AM
Hello Sarries!
Sorry, I understand 'worn' and 'worn out'. But when we want to use 'worn' before noun like 'worn clothes' here we mean the clothes that are worn out NOT the clothes that are worn, right? Here we can't say 'worn out clothes', right?

Is 'rags' like the things that we want to threw away or like old and worn clothing?

Each time you wear them for a week and then wash them, they become a little bit more worn. Eventually, after they have been around this loop many times, they will become so worn that they are unattractive or there is a risk that they will fall apart. If they fall apart while you're wearing them, everyone will find this very funny, but you won't. So before this happens, you will decide that they are "worn out" and you will cut them up into rags for dirty jobs like cleaning your bicycle.

Can you please explain 'cut up'? Is that different from 'cut'?

Excellent. Many thanks, Drago!
I thought just women can give prematurely birth not animals that's why I didn't understand that.

No.

You put clothes on (including shoes, hats, gloves etc).

You put your foot in the shoe, or your hand in the glove.

If that is a quote from the definition of "wear in" or "worn in", the red phrase is a typo - it should be "put them on".

Hi Drago Angel
Many thanks.

Is 'put in' like 'put on'?
Have you ever bought new shoes and put them in for the first time, they are uncomfortable to walk around in at first. Then after a while they become comfortable as you toes and heel etc. have pushed them out in all the right places but they still look new ? We call that state being “worn in” just enough wear but not too much.

Witchcraft is magic. If you make your neighbour's cow slink its calf, is it for a trick that they will hang you?

UPDATE
Magic is uncountable.

What do you mean, lazarius? Is 'slink' like when a baby dies in his mother's belly, please?

In the Christian religion, a person has to be held responsible for a certain number of miracles before they can be proclaimed a saint.

But if you were found guilty of performing magic (the spells kind, not the card tricks kind) you were put to death.

So that is another difference! Whistle

Many thanks thar Angel
So 'miracles are real but magics just are tricks, not real, right?

The Glass castle, movie


No magic is either tricks performed by a magician through slight of hand or similar skills or if you believe in such things the ability to use spells, rituals, charms , summon the dead etc. by using supernatural forces.
Miracles are similar in some respects to magic but are attributed to higher powers, magicians and wizards do magic, miracles are performed by Gods, prophets, or spiritual beings like Kami in the Japanese Shintō religion.


Many thanks Sarries Angel
