「Meaning」の類語とその違い

Q: what is the meaning と what does it mean はどう違いますか?
A: They mean exactly the same thing. "What does it mean?" is more common, but both phrases are used, and both sound natural and normal.
Q: I to write "I can't find the meaning" と "I don't find the meaning " はどう違いますか?
A: I can't find the meaning is the proper way to say it.
Q: 'who' (not the meaning of "Who "in the sentence "Who you are.",I mean the another meaning of it.) と 'whose' と 'whom' はどう違いますか?
A: "The girl who leapt through time." The word 'who' shows that the person who 'leapt through time' is 'the girl'. If you just said "The girl leapt through time" that would be past tense. However the girl who leapt through time would be her title or name. (I hope you understand) if you used "whose" it wouldnt make sense "the girl whose leapt through time" because 'whose' is a word which shows that the next part of the sentance belongs to 'the girl'. A sentance with whose in: "whose shoes are these?" (who do these shoes belong to) Lastly, whom has the same meaning of who (in the meaning of who you are talking about) it is not used as much because it sounds very formal. you normally read it in important documents or old stories for example. An example: "whom did he marry?" (Who did he marry?) Please ask if you have aby questions.
Q: meaning と sense はどう違いますか?
A: Meaning its the translation in other language; sense its when something is illogical
Q: meaning of the coordinator OR called exclusive と the one called inclusive はどう違いますか?
A: Exclusive or means that you can have A or B, but you can't have both A and B.
Inclusive or means that you can have A or B, and you can also have both A and B.

「Meaning」についての他の質問

Q: I think "barely" and "nearly" have the similar meaning.
In the case of "he nearly died," I think "he" didn't die.
But, by "he barely died," did he die?
And the sentence itself is natural or doesn't make any sense?
A:

1. Think of what is the final outcome
-- In my example is to win
-- In your own example is to die (first post)

2. "nearly" indicates almost achieving the desired outcome, but instead you achieve the opposite outcome.
-- nearly winning, but you didn't, so you lose
-- nearly died, but you didn't, so you are alive

3. "barely" indicates that the outcome is achieved, but just by a small margin. With a small difference, you would have instead achieved the opposite.
-- barely won, you won, but just by a little bit
-- barely alive, you're alive, but just by a little bit

** for 80% of context, you can think in terms 1,2,3 above.

In some rarer context, the word nearly/barely would mean differently, if you can understand this, it would be cool, but if you can't, don't worry too much about it. It is very nuanced, and would appear in some specific situations. For example:
- In terms of finishing something from a scale of 0-100 they would mean differently, like what I explained.
- In terms of "barely dead" it's a weird concept, I can think of some rare usage of this expression, but it somehow implies that the outcome of "dying" is desired, but instead, you are barely there (far away).
- barely dead cannot mean that you died a little bit, because if you're dead you're dead. That's why it has a very very specific interpretation, where dying has a "range" of what it means to die.
------
I can think of one example for "barely died."

In English, dying could also mean a concept that you felt your life no longer has a meaning, or you feel as if you are thrown into a void of despair.

A: Did you see the video of that puppy which got ran over by a car?
B: Yeah I did.
A: I saw that video, and I died a little inside.
B: Well, I barely died at all. I mean, I don't mean to be heartless, but to be honest, I barely felt anything.
Q: Any at all of “I am surprised you know any at all” has a negative meaning. Right? If it does, how can it be possible to be negative although “not” doesn’t come before “at all”?
A: "I'm surprised that you know any at all."라는 표현은 항상 부정적인 의미를 갖는 것이 아니에요. 문맥에 따라 뜻이 다를 수 도 있긴 하지만 칭찬이나 놀람을 표현하기도 해요. 무슨 뜻이냐면 예를 좀 줄 께요.

"I know of only 2 떡국 restaurants in the town I live in, in America." "Really I'm surprised that there are any at all." 여기서 "any at all"은 친구가 미국에서 살고 있어가지고 하나도 없다고 생각했는데 2게까지 있어서 완전 놀았다고 표현하고 있어요.
Q: If one of the meanings of the word "Conduct" is - organise something, can i say like that - " We can conduct that fight if you want".?
A: You probably just need to learn collocations with time. 'Organizing' a fight would only work if it was a professional fight or there were a lot of spectators. Normally we would say 'to have a fight'
Q: What is the meaning of "I make a connecting flight"? I especially want to know the meaning of "make" of this sentence.
A:
To make a connecting flight is to catch it, as in get on the flight and not miss it.
It could also mean to book the flight, as in reserving it.
In this sentence though, it should mean actually getting on the flight.
A connecting flight is a flight with a stop or two, a flight that doesn’t go the entire trip at once, so it stops and you board a second plane. (That’s the connecting part)
Q: all are correct, but different meanings? or?

A. in 10 months he left
B. in 10 months since he left
C. in the 10 months he left
D. in the 10 months since he left
A: Only D is correct 🙂
