Topic: How would you answer these questions!
Posted: Tuesday, April 7, 2009 11:43:54 AM
If the issue is a philosophical one, questions like 'you need to have an ear to have a sound?' must be answered.

However, if the query is literally about the usage of the words sound/noise, I believe that the word 'sound' suits better in that sentence, because the word 'noise' has a negative sense for me(and consequently a human being is needed in order for the objective meaning of the word to operate).

So, it has to be a man in the woods trying to get some sleep while the tree is falling in order to use the word noise!

What about "fair trial"? A trial should be fair by definition, shouldn't be?

For me the only difference between been/gone is when you are referring to the third person.
When you say that Frank has gone to Italy, it means that he is still there, while when you say that Frank has been to Italy, it mean that he is back.

Would your answers be different if the two questions were:

1)I have been to France many times.

2)I have gone to France many times.
