Adam, and what about fourth dot? When you started you said that you’d explane the meaning of the expression with fourth dots but never did it. Or I missed something?

Hasan

    Thanks for the lesson. I has wondered about it since the first time I learnt English.

    badien

Hi, I am very interesting with your lessons.

Many Thanks

Darin

    Hi Darin,

juanpablo

i didn’t understand whAT BLAH MEAN.

hiwot

    Hi Hiwot,

    BLAH means ‘not so good,’ or ‘boring,’ or ‘plain,’ etc.

    :)

    Adam

      hey adam,, what does “so on and so for” mean?

      kuldeepshaw

You did your hair cut. Looks good! Like Hasan I also was waiting till the end of the lesson. I don’t think I heard anything about it. Q2 is a bit tricky. I should have been more careful for each word. Thanks a lot.

endeavor

Thank you so much Adam. You are as always, marvellous. But you forgot to explain the fourth dot in …(.)

Very helpful lesson. Besides your teaching skills, you look like a typical english man.

Berber

Hello Adam,
Thank you for this lesson.Could you please explain me where we can use the word “over”?.You said that “my friend came over to my house”.i know this question is not related to this lesson.I have heard many people use this word with there(over there),here etc.,but you used different.Thank you in advance.

marryfa

    Hi Marryfa,

    Actually, I could have said “My friend came to my house.” ‘Over’ is just an extra word we use. Basically, it means a little like ‘here.’ When we say “over there,” seems to make it a little more specific, like ‘in that place’ as though you are pointing. But if you take it out, it doesn’t affect the meaning.

    Does that help?

    Adam

Thank you for the lesson Adam, it was very useful.

PS: The gnocchi’s recipe was great, and it made me hungry…

aiace

You lesson was not ‘blah’ at all. That made me interested, open, happy, and so on…

ganery

Good teacher, thank you so much.

Ozzy

Adam, what about the fouth dot […(.)]? And the lesson was really good. The way you explain is really easy to understand :). Thank you.

Sofia

Thanks a lot Mr Adam. It was really helpful and interesting.

decembre25

Thank you too much .it was the first time that i’ve checked your site and i should say it’s very good

Dani

Thanks a lot Adam, it’s very clear. But I’m little bit frustrated, you wrote three dot and you said, sometimes it’s possible to write four dot but you didn’t say the meaning of four dot… ;-)

jg94110

    this vidoe is good thanks adam!

    mogadseer

Hi Everybody,

Sorry about forgetting to mention the 4th dot.

It’s actually pretty simple:
The 4th dot is a period. That is, it ends the sentence.
example: I like all kinds of fruit, such as apples, bananas, strawberries….
The last dot is a regular period for an end of sentence marker. If you list ends at the end of the sentence, you can’t use one of the dots as your period. That’s why you would have the fourth.

If you’re not sure about this, ask me.

Thanks.

Adam

    Dear teachers,

    I’d like to take this chance for telling you
    ” HAPPY NEW YEAR ” for every things that you did for us .
    I wish you all the best and enjoyable time with. * MERRY CHRISTMAS FOR ALL *
    Yours faithfully,
    Ameen

    Ameen

    Hello dear Adam,
    I couldn’t catch ur last sentences completely,
    “If u list ends at the…….”
    What do u mean exactly plz?!
    Tx in advance.

    fatiima8

      Hi Fatiima,

      First, an apology. I meant ‘your’ list.

      example: “I like fruits like apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries, pineapples, plums, and others.”
      or:
      “I like fruits like apples, bananas,…
      The second one is wrong because only three dots means it is missing the period, so the sentence hasn’t ended. It should be:
      “I like apples, bananas,….”
      Last dot is the period.

      Adam

    “blah” is only used in spoken english?

    PD: Happy Holydays engVid Team!

    luis

Adam you rock, thank you for the lesson.
BTW
In Russian language “blah” sounds like shit.)

poslegg

    I’ll keep that in mind :)

    Adam

      No, it’s not sounds like “shit”, it sounds like “whore” on russian language.Russians like to say this word :\

      TayaLigus

well thanks for your lesson sir. I just need to know the difference between “it’s been a long time and it has been a long time” pls help me out sir

dinesh kumar

    Hi Dinesh,

    It’s been… = It has been…

    The ‘s is a shortened form.

    Does that help?

    Adam

Thank you very very, Adam! Could you please explain the origin of that mute “h” at the end of such words like “blah”, why not just write “bla” and be happy?!

Kseniia

    Hi Kseniia,

    Good question. Hard to answer with quiet words on a screen, but basically, the ‘h’ extends the ‘a’ sound, making it longer.

    Adam

Thank you! One would never think about such things. Such a good lesson Adam! Many thanks.

bibi

Dear teacher thank you very much for very useful skills that you have provided us to help us to write proper sentenses and symbols.WISHING YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND PROSPERIOU NEW YEAR 2013.

Hello Adam,

I am a publisher living in Toronto. I came across this site while browsing,and I think it provides an excellent learning opportunity for all kinds of people. I was impressed by your teaching methods in particular, and found it educational and engaging.

I would be very interested to speak to you further and possibly discuss some very rewarding business ideas.

I look very forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you Iraj,

    I appreciate the thought but can’t take on anything at the moment.

    Perhaps in the near future.

Dear Adam,

Excellent communication demonstrated by you.I loved watching it.Today is 25th Dec 2012(Tuesday)I want to say merry Chrismis to you and to all of engvid team.Mazhar Jamil (Pakistan)

mtareen1112

hi Adam
this is my first time watching your video and i have to confess that the lesson’s topic was my question also.
thanks for your assistance.

here is another question :Don’t we use “etc” solely in writings and so on in speech ?

kazem rahimi

    Hi Kazem,

    We can actually use both expressions in writing and speaking. In writing, though, etc. is more common; however, keep in mind that it is pretty informal.

    Adam

thank you so much!

Sora BAEK

Thank you so much!
I’m a Korean. I hope I am good at English in the near future:-)

What is the difference between “dot” and “period”?

morfik

    I’m not 100% but I think the “dot” is a dot, :), a circle symbol and used in domain of website not in sentence. The “period” is a dot, used to end a sentence.( period, not dot).

    Dat

    I found this info , `AE` they called it period ,`BE` they called it full-stop .
    The dissimilarity between dot and period ?
    Is that dot used in computer filed names , internet addresses ,and email addresses such as www.(dot)EngVid.(dot)com,,also , it said that it used in name of IP addresses 145.260.123 , it pronounced dot .
    on the other hand, period or full-stop it used in the end of sentence .

    but there is something it still questioning me . We know that in BE it`s not used while in AE it`s necessary to used it after abbreviation .
    such as = ^AE^ co. ,,S.S.,,St.,,^BE^ co ,, SS,,St what we called it here dot or period and why ? what is the differen !!

    hisham77

      Too Right! :)
      I’ve found the same.
      But,about ur ? ,in my book it is dot after abbreviations like WWW.(dot) & as we know,we use full stop o period at the end of a statement.Right?!!
      Have Fun!

      fatiima8

        yep, you have point here^^ it is dot not period
        but I would like to know why BE never used and AE t

        hisham77

        different
        notwithstanding
        yep,,you have point here , it is dot not period. But I would like to know why BE never used the dot after abbreviation while AE it is necessary to used it,,, is it kind of rules in AE or what !!!

        hisham77

          It’s a rule.

          fatiima8

      Ok, but what if we have this situation:

      I see something in the distance, a text, and I’m not sure if there is a comma or a dot(period). For example: “… , I …” or “… . I …” So, should I ask my friend: “Is there a comma or a dot” or “Is there a comma or a period”?

      morfik

        right it is somehow confusing . but I think there is nothing to special to distinguished between them ,so you showed came near to see it well

        hisham77

          Nice dialogue here :)

          Period for ending a sentence. Dot for everything else.
          ellipsis always have at least 3 dots. If you use with a comma within a sentence, 3, but to end a sentence, 4.
          It’s actually pretty complicated. This is the stuff of editors. But, if you are interested, it’s best to consult a style guide.

          Adam

          Many thanks to you T/Adam ^^

          hisham77

very nice keep on

Thank you Adam for your clear and smart way of teaching

Rajae

Very nice, thank you…

Wellington

i love this

limboboy

your lesson some of those not esially making me sense

limboboy

I have a question about “spaces” in writing. In my native language we use two rules:

1. Continuation of sentence. We use: word+space+tree dots. Sample: I like chips, coca cola, pizza … (<– notice space between pizza and three dots). Also, there are no four dots at the end of the sentence. If another sentence is written, then: I like, chips, coca cola, pizza … I also like to watch TV. (<– So pizza+space+tree dots+space+word_of_another_sentence).

2. Abbreviation of word: She is real bit… (<– notice no space between bit and tree words, because "bit…" is actually a abbreviation for bitch, so continuation of word is written without a space).

If I understand correctly, there are no additional spaces in English. Right? It is hard to see spaces from hand-writing.

alex

    Hi Alex,

    You’re right, there aren’t extra spaces after the word. However, if you want to shorten a word, use a long dash, like bi–. It’s clearer.

    Adam

Very interesting and cute lesson :-)
Thank you

lukeman

Hey!! I need to understand one thing about the word “ever” in these words. What they really mean:

ever-deceptive, ever-present,….
Thanks

henry19

    Hi Henrique,

    In these cases, ‘ever-‘ is used like ‘always.’

    Adam

thanks, Adams thi is important…

odir

This tips were so interesting!
tks

John

hi again dear adam ..what about this
on and on
thanks once more time<3

nino31

    I think the meaning is entirely different from `and so on`
    “on and on“ means something it happening for long time
    e.g. The screaming went on and on . means continued for long time ^_^

    hisham77

      thank you dear brother hicham

      nino31

    In fact,it’s an IDM.
    On n on : without stopping,without a break.
    Off n on : occasionally,from time 2 time.
    :)

    fatiima8

      thank you dear sister fatima

      nino31

    Hi Nino,

    ‘on and on’ is more like ‘blah, blah, blah,’ than the others.

    Good point. Thanks :)

    Adam

      thank you so Much adam

      nino31

    u r really great,,thanks a lot for teaching this lesson,,

Ruslan

thank you. your lesson was great.

Arjan

thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!

aijan

Great lesson! Thank you :D
I just have a question on “and so on” thing. Someone, who is not a native speaker, mentioned about my writing one day. He said that “and so on” is a very unsual expression and native people seldom use it, because they like expressions that are accurate and have only one meaning. Is that true? I’m also wondering if I can use the expression “and so on” in a formal writing as well. I learned that expression when I was about 14 and I thought it was pretty common and formal.

vicky

    Hi Vicky,

    Well, it depends what you are writing. “and so on, is a bit of a cheat. This means it lets you get away with not saying enough. Writing is different from speech in that it needs to be sharp and words shouldn’t be wasted. It’s not an unusual expression, but maybe better used in speech than writing.

    Does this help?

    Adam

      Yes, it did help. Then, in writing, should I use ‘etc.’ instead of ‘and so on’? In my language, it’s formal to say those expressions when I have a lot to list. So, I often use them when I translate my language into English. I’d like to know if you have any other suggestions.

      vicky

        Well, if you are writing a lot, for variety you can use both. But etc. is the first choice I’d say.

        other expressions are “among others” or “and the like”. If you can combine lists that would save on these as well.

        Adam

hiAdam, thank you for your teaching I have got 8 out of 10 really it is useful lesson for me thank you again

heero

Hi everybody,

Happy new year. Hope it’s a good one for all of you.

For those who missed an earlier comment about the fourth dot, here it is:
The 4th dot is a period. That is, it ends the sentence.
example: I like all kinds of fruit, such as apples, bananas, strawberries….
The last dot is a regular period for an end of sentence marker. If you list ends at the end of the sentence, you can’t use one of the dots as your period. That’s why you would have the fourth.

See you soon

Adam

The lesson wasn’t at all blah :D. It was really useful.
I have a Q.
If I’m writing an academic essay (i mean in a formal way),am I allowed to write etc. in this form or I have to write etcetera ???

radwaaah

Thanks for lesson, Adam. From your lesson, i have to put a comma (,) before “and so on”. How about “etc.” and “…”?
In above examples, you use “…” with or without comma before. Both of them are correct?
And if “, and etc.” is fasle (I was wrong this question in the test). It should be “,etc.”. But, is is correct if I write “and etc.” (not comma before)?

smiling

thank you adam, you have a nice way :)

Hello. It was very interesting lesson! i really like all of Your videos :)
And i would like to clarify one moment: Adam, You said, that ‘Blah, blah, blah’ uses when somebody tells something boring, but also this phrase has the similar meaning that the “etc.” or “…”. Is it right?

Valeri

Thank you very much, sir Adam! I would like to know whether ‘as well’ can be used as synonym of these words, which you explained?

Hi Adam!
I like your teaching, because you try to provide in-depth knowledge about the stuff you teach.
Now, I want to draw your attention towards one thing that I think I noticed.
In the start of the video, when you were talking about dot(.), you said “dot dot dot and dot” sometime the four dots, I will explain it.” and then you said “blah blah blah and blah”…I think you didn’t explain the usage of 4 dots or I didn’t get it nicely.
what is true?

Aleesh

Thank You teacher Adam, I like the way you explain every single word :) That’s how I like and it’s so easy for me to understand and get it.

hello everyone, I think Adam has the touch of teaching he explains very well, gaves us examples with every lesson, and so on. He tries to make easier the topic, and that’s why I think he is a good teaher, you’re one of the my favourites tutors from engvid. Regards.

The correct pronunciation of etc. is et cetera. It does not contain a k or an x.

Hi Adam. Very nice lesson, as usual!
I was surprised to hear you list pizza together with fish and chips as well as hamburgers adding that this food is junk … well … I don’t know how you prepare pizza (what ingredients you use) in Toronto but in Italy pizza is considered healthy because it’s basically bread, tomato and mozzarella. Then, accoding to taste, you can add other ingredients, from vegetables and other cheeses to cold cuts (ham, bresaola, and so on) and even shellfish. Healthy and delicious! Enjoy … ;)
