The German name of the currency isn’t Deutsche Mark (DM) any more. In January 2002, DM was replaced by Euro (€). Anyway, great explanation of differences between ‘bi’, ‘buy’, ‘by’ and ‘bye’. Well done :)

Thanks for teaching me James, I have one complaint. You speak too fast man! But don’t change your way of speaking! I’m going to win this challenge by listening to you and the other teachers! I’d like to ask you a thing! Could you please teach me when I can use “ain’t”. I know it might seem useless, but I’m sure that there are people who’d like to know about it too! Big Hug!

Enjoyed the by video.
But didn’t answer my question. I run a sports league. Every week one team has a week off, you know what I am leading up to… how do you spell their “bi” week?

Bill Orleans

    I don’t know if the teacher already replied to your question, but you are correct, you can say “this team has a bi this week” or “this team play every other week” or “this team play once every two weeks” I hope this comments will help you.

vadiya sam

when I started to watch this lesson, I thought you were going to explain the change of the pronunciation “BY” when found at the end of a word; example: CASTLEBY I believe it’s pronounce “BE” but can you tell me why? if there’s a rule, can you explain?

thanks a lot

Nebue

Thank you for lesson. Really interesting. I have a question. Can you show examples for the BY in passive? Can’t understand that point.

Hi Ronnie!!
I am a school teacher (soon to inculcate accent amongst my students), all I want to clarify is for the pronunciation for the words ending in -logy e.g. eulogy, sociology..
Is it that such words are pronounced:
1. before the syllable
2. Or, after the syllable??

Profile photo of dpiyer dpiyer

Any clarity on the same will be much appreciated!!!

Apologies if I sound a touch strident in this response, and if I sound like I’m angry, it’s because I am. Your actions are hurting one of the best institutions in all of higher education, one that I was able to utilize my four years at CMC, and one that helped me grow intellectually and professionally.

I have always doubted of “by” as a preposition because sometimes it’s confused with “for”, especially with the Pronominal or Phrasal Verbs, e.g., “stand by” and “stand for”. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid.
