Hi In my native language, the words stealing and robbing have totally different meanings and they do not overlap. Robbery is forceful (the victim knows what s/he is losing] while stealing is a silent, stealthy action. For example: He robbed her of her money. (maybe at gunpoint – she herself took the money out of her purse and gave him…) He stole her money. (She didn’t even know that the money was gone until she opened her purse…) However, in English, I often see the two actions (I mean the words) overlapping. He stole her purse while she was fast asleep. He robbed her of purse while she was fast asleep. In my language, they would be something like this: He stole her purse while she was fast asleep. [She was not aware of the action] He robbed her of her purse as soon as she stepped out of the ATM cabin/room???. [She was aware of the action] Am I able to get my point across? Or am I missing something? Tom PS: What do you say? walk in/out of the ATM room/cabin/cubicle? Or just ATM?...

The narrator recalls his adolescence. He was an apprentice for Mr. Spenlow. He and Mr. Spenlow's only daughter Dora fell in love with each other, but after Mr. Spenlow's sudden death, she moved in with her two aunts and confined herself there. He made an appointment with Dora's aunts to visit them through correspondence and came Dora's aunts' house with his best friend Traddles. Miss Lavinia and Clarissa are Dora's aunts; Miss Lavinia, the younger one took the lead in this conversation. Franscis is Dora's father. .............. 'We had not,' said Miss Clarissa, 'been in the habit of frequent association with our brother Francis; but there was no decided division or disunion between us. Francis took his road; we took ours. We considered it conducive to the happiness of all parties that it should be so. And it was so.' .............. Miss Lavinia was going on to make some rejoinder, when Miss Clarissa, who appeared to be incessantly beset by a desire to refer to her brother Francis, struck in again: 'If Dora's mama,' she said, 'when she married our brother Francis, had at once said that there was not room for the family at the dinner-table, it would have been better for the happiness of all parties.' 'Sister Clarissa,' said Miss Lavinia. 'Perhaps we needn't mind that now.' 'Sister Lavinia,' said Miss Clarissa, ' it belongs to the subject. With your branch of the subject, on which alone you are competent to speak, I should not think of interfering. On this branch of the subject I have a voice and an opinion. It would have been better for the happiness of all parties, if Dora's mama, when she married our brother Francis, had mentioned plainly what her intentions were. We should then have known what we had to expect. We should have said "Pray do not invite us, at any time"; and all possibility of misunderstanding would have been avoided.' [David Copperfield by Charles Dickens] I'd like to know if "this branch of the subject is the same as "it." Thank you in advance for your help....

Please look at the following phrase that my friend told today This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I want to know what the above sentence means. Does it mean that she has never seen any movie which was better than this? Or does it mean she has seen movies which were as good as this one and they may probably number three. So this is one of the three best movies she has ever seen. Which is correct? Please tell me. If not, then please correct my interpretation. Can best movies mean more than one movie? Should not best mean only one? I mean logically best must mean better than everything else. Please help me. Thank you...
