Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Usage"

The meaning of "Usage" in various phrases and sentences

Q: Please teach me the usage of "carry around with", can it to link with abstract nouns? Such as "carry around with the name" ne anlama geliyor?
A: It usually refers to a person bringing something with them to various places.
For example:
"I always carry my phone around with me"
"She bought an unbelievably expensive designer purse, which she was proud to carry around with her everywhere she went."

I cannot think of an instance in which it is used with an abstract noun. The sentence you are wondering about sounds bizarre and is incomprehensible to me. A sentence like "He carries our name around with him" is possible, but it would be a metaphorical sentence; and by "our name" it would refer to our reputation.
Q: What does the usage of 'do you any good' in "It won't do you any good if you still don't have a heart"? ne anlama geliyor?
“do you any good “ is a common, established expression. A little colloquial, but not much

1)It won’t do you any good to complain about the train being late.

2)It won’t benefit you to complain about the train being late.

3)You won’t profit by complaining.

they all mean the same.
“it won’t do you any good” is the informal, colloquial choice
Q: what is the main and common usage of ought ? ne anlama geliyor?
A: It's similar to should, maybe a little less harsh.

He ought to take better care of himself. ("He should take better care of himself" is more judgmental)

That ought to be illegal. (That should be illegal, that shouldn't be legal)

"Ought to" can be shortened to "oughta" informally.
Q: what's the usage of 'to bless' in the sentence below? and please any other examples of it?

"Bts is blessing the AGT stage next Wednesday."
ne anlama geliyor?
A: The word 'bless' stems from religion- "I am blessed by God" would mean that God looks favourably upon you. But instead of God, it has been appropriated to be used for anyone people deem to be extraordinary or that have God-like power e.g. "my teacher blessed me with good grades". So in the context of your example, they're saying that BTS are like Gods, and that their presence on the stage is a divine gift. 😅

Example sentences using "Usage"

Q: The usage of "as be" ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: This is a great question! I have never thought about this before. :)

“As is” is a normal way to point out the similarity between two things. Your sentence with “as is my brother” is very natural.

Some more examples:
“That is a great story, as is this one.”
“Your dog is brown, as is mine.”

The meaning is the same as “so is,” but the two phrases are written a little differently, because “so” and “as” are different types of words. If you say “so is,” you must first say “and.” The phrase “and so is” is more commonly used than the phrase “as is.”

“I am a boy, and so is my brother.”
“That is a great story, and so is this one.”
“Your dog is brown, and so is mine.”

I hope this helps! :)
please give me some usage of "Be". Ex: what is the difference between "Might" and "might be". And behind "might be" is gerund or bare infinitive. Thank you all <3 ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: You are really saying the same thing. Might + be is no different that Might + be + (gerund/noun). Might is usually followed by a base verb (I might go, I might be, I might say). So your question really is "what follows a base verb", because "might be" is just "might" followed by a base verb. The answer is gerund/noun/adjective
"I might go to the moon" = "I might be going to the moon". Examples of noun/adjective-"I might be sick, "I might be President".
Q: complicated usage of comma ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: this is the first sentence to a book known as "a tale of two cities"

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
Q: get.
there is so much usage in this word.
when I use this word I get cinfused. ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: It can mean to buy:
I am going to get something at the store.

How about we get pizza?

It can also mean to make something happen (an event or emotion):
Let's get this party started.

Let's get excited for tomorrow's trip!
Hope this helped! It is a pretty tricky word to explain.

A: Usage: the way something is used

‘Here are the usage instructions.’

Utility / usefulness: the degree to which something is useful (utility is more formal and less common)

‘I doubt the utility/usefulness of this app.’

Utility : a public service/supply (water, gas etc.)

Q: past simple usage ve present perfect usage arasındaki fark nedir?
A: It's a little hard to explain, because most native speakers don't actively think about stuff like this, so if you want a better explanation I'd recommend checking out this website:


When you want to specify when you did an action, you should use past simple. It's not required to specify the time of the action, but it sounds a little unusual if you don't.
"He biked earlier today"
"We drove to the party last night"

If you don't want to say when you did an action, you can use present perfect. This is more for saying you've done an action, but not exactly when you've done it.
"He has biked"
"We have been married for 10 years"
Q: "usage of medical algorithms" ve "use of medical algorithms" arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Most of the time, "use" and "usage" are interchangeable. The only real difference is that "usage" is always a noun, whereas "use" can be a noun or a verb. "Usage" is also used more often in formal situations.

For your specific example, "the usage of medical algorithms" also has a sense of continuity, like it will be used again and again. The "use of medical algorithms" can imply either a one-time use or continuous use.
Q: I often confuse with the usage of these ve those. can anyone help me out? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: These are for objects that are near you and those are for objects far away from you. These apples are nice. Those children are naughty

Other questions about "Usage"

Q: The usage of "keen to know"

Do you say "the police officer is keen to know where the murderer is."?

Or is "keen to know" used only for good things, like, "I am keen to know what souvenir my father will get for me."?
A: I think it works in both situations.
Q: I'm still confused with the usage of "that" and "it" especially when they mean the same thing. Can anyone help me understand how to use them differently? I understand that that is used to refer to something specific and it is used to refer to something that has mentioned before. The reason why I'm confused is that sometimes I feel people use "it" even when the thing hasn't mentioned before, for example, did you get it? (it refers to a hat in this case.). If "it" is always used to refer to something that has mentioned before, I think "that" is more correct like did you get that. Is this grammar true only when you are talking? I'm so confused.
A: Yep, that's okay.
Q: Could you tell me the usage of both 'electronic' and 'electric'? Thank you.
A: Electronic = computer/small parts

Electric = Tools, cars, etc. Things that are whole.

That is what I think at least.

"He has a electric car."

"Look at all the electronics in that computer."

"I love using my electric saw."

"This electronic watch is pretty neat."

Just a few examples I could immediately think of.
