Anonymous:1. I have a question about the difference between "too much burden" and "too much of a burden."
What is the difference in meaning?
If it should have the same meaning, why are they used in both ways?
2. When I am late for school, a meeting, or etc., which should I use,
a) I am sorry for being late
b) I am sorry about being late
c) I am sorry to be late
d) I am sorry that I am late
and.. what is the meaning (or grammar) difference?
Thank you for your answer in advance.
Have a fantabulous evening.
Anonymous1. I have a question about the difference between "too much burden" and "too much of a burden."I'm not aware that they are both used. The only one that I can imagine in a sentence is 'too much of a burden'.
Anonymous2. When I am late for school, a meeting, or etc., which should I use,Any of them will do. Native speakers usually say the shorter version "Sorry I'm late".
