I saw the other day, somebody said "the power went out" is that "went out" or "went off". Any other meanings between them? I thought went off is correct, any idea, any one? Please.
Thanks so much. [:^)]
'The power went out' is very common in casual N. American speech. It's a form of slang, really.
You'll also hear people say 'There was a power outage'. This is not considered as slang.
The pwoer went off yesterday.
The power goes off every day.
The power will go off tomorrow.
People are waiting to help.
