      Useful tips for expressing possession. They will help us to use the language correctly.

      I liked this lesson A LOT (and the preposition “of”?).

this lesson is very interesting, so I can write the right sentences next time…But I have one question that I want to ask for you…
In example you write:
A number of people study English…
Why do you use “people” word not “peoples” as plural word…
Does “people” word have the same word in single and plural word. Please help me…I stil confused about it…

    For most words in English, we add an s to make them plural. For example, dog becomes dogs. There are some exceptions to this rule. People is one of the exceptions.

    singular = person
    plural = people

    I saw a person near my house last night (only 1). I saw people near my house last night (2 or more).

what are differences

    ‘Lot of’ is incorrect. We can say that we have lots of food. We can’t say that we have lot of food.

    Profile photo of Emma Emma

      Thanks a lot emma

      Abdelle

      The right thing there would be “a lot of food” or “lots of food”.Because we should include the article “a” before the word “lot” in singular.Is it correct?

      Profile photo of dsilva179 dsilva179

        Exactly!

        We can either use ‘lots of’ or ‘a lot of’. Keep an eye out for the video I’ve made on this subject. It should be posted soon.

Hi, Emma
There’s a thing that I don’t understand. You say ‘of the’ is used with things and objects that are not alive. Most of your lessons begin with ‘Hi there, my name’s _____ and in today’s lesson we’re gonna talk about….’. Today is not alive, I don’t understand…
Thanks

Ruben

    Great question Ruben! We usually use ‘s with today, yesterday, tomorrow, etc.

    As you probably know, in English there are always exceptions to rules. When showing possession, using ‘s or ‘of the’ are both grammatically correct. This lesson looked at the situations where ‘s was more common than ‘of the’. Again, there are always exceptions to these rules.

Efrain Dominguez

emma i think the sentence ‘lots of animal live in the zoo’ is wrong there should be word ‘animal’ instead of ‘animals’ because there is ‘lots’ and i have learnt in a grammar book that when we use lots then we do not use plural form.

rohit

    When we use ‘lots of’ or ‘a lot of’ the noun that follows is in the plural form if it is a countable noun.

    Eg, There were a lot of animals in the zoo.

    Animal is a countable noun. So we pluralize it with ‘a lot of’. For uncountable nouns like furniture, we don’t pluralize the noun.

    Eg) I have a lot of furniture.

    We have videos on countable and uncountable nouns on the site. I recommend watching them. Here is the link.

Hi, Emma thank you for the lesson. It was excellent. I have a question I want you to solve: If I say, “all my friends are lazy”. Is it coorect?

jx

    It’s correct! I hope it’s not true. :)

    The ‘of’ is only really necessary with pronouns (eg, us, you, him, her, it, them)

    Here are some examples:

    1) All of us should visit the school. (Pronoun ‘us’ = all of)

    2) I need to eat all of them. (Pronoun ‘them’ = all of)

    Hope that helps!

    Profile photo of Emma Emma

Emma, you are a great teacher. I like you a lot. Uaau? What this a lot means? Is this quantity?

crebio

    Hi Crebio,

    ‘A lot’ means a great extent or a large quantity. It’s the opposite of ‘a little’. It can be both a noun and an adverb.

    In the sentence, ‘I like you a lot’, a lot is the adverb. It describes the verb and means you especially like me.

    Here are some other examples of ‘a lot’ as an adverb.

    I read a lot. = I read often and/ or I read a large quantity.

    I swim a lot. = I swim often.

    I eat a lot. = I eat a large quantity and/ or I eat often.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Emma, i saw your lesson about possession with OF, it was very helpfully and thanks, but I still have a question that is for example: how do say a phrase like this one: “A mug of beer” or “A beer mug” What is the right way? Is not possession and is not quantity, in this case the mug has beer inside. Other example is: “a soup plate” or “a plate of soup”

Profile photo of cabaaso76 cabaaso76

    Hi cabaaso,

    This is an excellent question. Let me use the idea of a teacup and a cup of tea to explain the difference. When we talk about teacups, we are talking about a type of cup. ‘Teacup’ is a noun. I have teacups, but I don’t always fill them with tea. Sometimes I drink milk from them, and sometimes I use them as decoration. However, if I have a cup of tea, I have a cup and it is filled with tea. This means that I have both the cup and the tea in it to drink.

    Here are some more examples:

    1) A soup plate = noun (specific type of plate used specifically for serving soup) eg. For Christmas, I bought my mother a soup plate. She loved it.

    2) A plate of soup = there is a plate with soup in it eg. The dog knocked over the plate of soup. What a mess!

    3) A beer bottle = noun (specific type of bottle) eg. I need to recycle the empty beer bottles.

    4) A bottle of beer = there is a bottle with beer in it eg. Would you like a bottle of beer or a pint?

Hello, Emma. I have a qestion. Should I write “people‘s“ or “people‘“ if I want to say that people own something? Create , please a lesson for me about few- some-any. One more question if you are not against: how can I make my vocabulary better?

milly45

    Hi Milly,

    Use an ‘s, eg. People’s rights include freedom of expression.

    In terms of your question on vocabulary, make a goal to learn five new words a day. Try to write two sentences for each word you learn, and review the words often.
    I will have more videos on vocabulary soon, so stay tuned.

I have a question,
I could say as the first sentence and second

All of my restaurants receive rich people
or All of my parents make a lot of my

That last frase you wrote
All of my friends
I wanted to know if I could substitute the first and the second
instead of I write “” of the “”
I would say, “” Of my”
I wait your answer,

adriano

    Hi Adriano,

    Thank you for your question.

    You can use either ‘of the’ or ‘of my’ depending on your meaning.

    For people and animals who have a relationship with you, (eg, friends, teachers, family, pets) or for things that you own, use ‘all of my’, eg. all of my friends, all of my teachers, all of my shirts.

    Profile photo of Emma Emma

correcting the second frase
All of my parents make a lot of money.

adriano

    If you have two parents or are talking about two things, use ‘both’ instead of ‘all’.

    Both of my parents make a lot of money.

it is a superb lesson. i really appreciate for that, i have one question that using “of” why we do not need “s” A lot of but why we add ‘s’ for example “Lots of”

victor

    Hi Victor,

    Great question! I don’t quite know the answer to that, but my guess is it just has to do with the history of the language. There may not be a logical reason.

Hi teacher~
Which sentence is better?
1. Canada’s biggest cities are Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.
2. The biggest cities of Canada are Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.
1 – For countries, we prefer using ‘s.
2 – For countries, we prefer using ‘of the’.

    Hi martinchen,

    When talking about countries, it’s better to use ‘s, so the first example is the preferable one.

Dear Emma,

I have just watched your lesson, but now I am on two minds about the using of “a great deal of”. In my grammar book written by L.G Alexander and pressed by Longman,the phrase only use for uncountable nouns, but in your lesson you used it with “Students” – a countable noun. So please!give me a bit more about how to use ” a great deal of ” exactly!

my another question WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS.here the word world is not a person,not a country,not an animal…..but how we use WORLD’S?

sunny

    Hi Sunny,

    Thank you for posting this. ‘World’ is another example of when it is better to use ‘s.

    Here is the updated list for ‘s:

    Person, group of people, organization, country, animal, time (eg, today’s date, yesterday’s news), and world (eg, the world’s ugliest dog).

Hi, Emma. I have a question. The sixth quiz ‘Plenty of children play sports’. When we talking about a specific group, we use ‘of the’, but there is just ‘of’ in the sentence, not ‘of the’. Why? Why the sentence is not like this ‘Plenty of the children play sports’?

Dear Emma, many thanks for this tutorial on “of”. Sometimes I read that people use a phase like “noun of adj”. Here is one example. “The public have become the recipients of a plethora of hedonistic, high profile buildings for culture and leisure that have been stimulated by Lottery funding and the perceived need to mark the millennium.” Could you explain this?

Hi my great teacher Emma

I was very confused about the preposition (of) but I have a small question and it is another topic. when I say
The dog’s leg is broken that means one dog leg is broken
but when I say or write
the dogs'( leg / legs) is/are broken…… what does that mean
I hope that you get my point
pleas answer me as soon as possible

hi,miss emma,the reason why I am writing you is because I would like to know why when people use the verb to clean they add the preposition out? for example: my sister had to clean the house out. why it is used (out) if you can say only clean.this happends with many others verbs and prepositions even with away.so what I mean is why I have to use (out) or( away) if the verbs without the prepositions mean the same. please help me and tell me how good is my writing

Almost all needs ‘of the’ when we are talking about a specific group. It does not need ‘of the’ when we are talking about a general group.

For example:
1. Almost all students studied hard.
2. Almost all of the president studied hard.

It that right Emma ? student is a normal group name and president is a special group name. Please Thanks

Thanks Emma, Can I ask a question?

What’s the difference between “all of students” and “all of the student”. In your lecture, most of the example sentences with “of” mean specific objects, so they also used with “the”. However, in the quiz No.5, the correct answer is “A lot of students study abroad.” I thought the sentence would be “A lot students..” OR “A lot of the students..”.
I think I’m confused OF with OF THE.
I’m looking forward getting your answer, please.
Thanks always.

Emma, I watched the lesson again and I understood most of them. So, I want to change my question a little bit. Sadly, I’m might not allowed to edit my formal question, so, Here it is.

I’m confused using of only “OF” with “OF THE”.
For example,
1. Many dogs are cute.–> general
2. Many of dogs are cute.—> ?
3. Many of the dogs are cute. —> specific.
Are these three sentences correct?
Is No.2 general meaning or specific?

I’m looking forward your answer. Thanks again.

Dear Emma,

4. Which sentence is better?
1. Canada’s biggest cities are Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.
2. The biggest cities of Canada are Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.
1 – For countries, we prefer using ‘s.
2 – For countries, we prefer using ‘of the’.

I am confused above. I check the second explain, and there is no “the” before Canada, but i don’t quite understand why the second option is right

Hello,
At first I want to thank you amd all the teachers of ENGVid Emma. My question will be about a usage of the “of” that makes me confused a lot. Here are the examples:
1- “If you paint the same face, and
set a winged rose or a rose of gold somewhere about
her, one’s thoughts are of her immortal sisters, Piety
and Jealousy, and of her mother, Ancestral Beauty, and
of her high kinsmen, the Holy Orders, whose swords
make a continual music before her face.” The “of” makes me confused in this sentence is one that was used after the verb to be, so, “one’s thoughts are of her immortal sisters”.
2-The title of this book echoes that of Roy Bhaskar, “A Realist Theory of Science,
and this immodest act is homage to an important work that gave impetus to the
movement of Critical Realism to which my work contributes.” and it’s the second example I couldn’t get the purpose of the “of” (specifically “echoes that of Roy Bhaskar”) I hope it hasn’t been too long. Thank you in advance. :)

What’s the meaning of deal Emma? I mean in your expression A great deal of students?

Profile photo of Maripaz Maldonado Maripaz Maldonado

    “A great deal of…” is an idiom that means “a lot of…” or “many”. It is a little more common in British English. So a great deal of students means many students.
