Wonder when to use concurrently
and when to use simultaneously?

Both the police and robber fired at each other (concurrently / simultaneously) and both fell dead at the same time.

Thanks for help!

Hello,

Wonder which preposition to use for the following?
I was caught up with/in work?
If both ok, is there any difference?

Thank you!

Hi,

Just a suggestion...

When one does a search for a word, TFD often returns multiple examples/sentences containing the word. Wonder if the word could be highlighted in bold fonts so one can quickly zoom in on it at a glance?

Eg. Exemplar
1) "an exemplar of success" => "an exemplar of success"
2) They viewed their new building as an exemplar of taste.
3) One of the wittiest exemplars of the technique was M.C. Escher.
2 & 3 are fine, as they are in italics and blue color.

Cheers :)
