ArmsysHi Grammar Geek,

"Call" may lexically have the meaning of visitation. Both "I call you" and "I call for you" with the specific meaning of "visit you" are rare in the States. For clarity, I use "I visit you" or "I drop by your house tomorrow."

"I called you yesterday" normally means "I phoned you yesterday," doesn't it?
Armstrong

"I'll call you" NEVER means "I will visit you." "I called you yesterday" would mean "I phoned you."

"I'll call ON you" can mean to visit, but yes, it's rather rare in the US for a casual social visit. 

"I'll call FOR you" means I will pick you up. We're not staying at your house, but going on somewhere else.

I'm very thankful for your reply. I know that you want me to do my best to improve my English knowledge- never be dependent of others. But reason for my topic is that although I have the key to this excises , I still don't understand why we choose it. So I created it. Thanks anyway to you!
Hi doanbichngoc,

If you already have the answer key, but there are some that don't make sense, then highlight which ones.

For example, if you don't see the difference between two particular words in a given answer, say "The key says it's X but I don't understand why Y doesn't work." Then we can help you focus on the differences.
@Grammar Geek: Thanks you for you suggestion. I 'll start at once :
1. the visit of the president will increase the...between the two countries.
A. Understanding
B.Quiet
C.peace.
D. knowledge
The key say it's A but I don't understand why don't we choose D.?I find A & D seem to have the same meaning.
2. 'I will call... you at 6 o'clock", john said.

5. When he woke up , he realised that the things he had dreamt about could not ...have happened
a.possibly

The key say it's A
but In both of above sentense I find it difficult to tell one from 4 answers in meaning .

The key say it's A. Why don't we choose C?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
doanbichngoc@Grammar Geek: Thanks you for you suggestion. I 'll start at once :
1. the visit of the president will increase the...between the two countries.
A. Understanding
B.Quiet
C.peace.
D. knowledge
The key say it's A but I don't understand why don't we choose D.?I find A & D seem to have the same meaning.

Knowledge usually about science and facts: He has a lot of knowledge about geography.
Understanding is more of an agreement between people in how they interpret things (even the facts!)

2. 'I will call... you at 6 o'clock", john said.
A,by
b.up
c.for
d.if
The key say it's C. But I completely don't understand why.I wonder between B & C. "I will call up you." is incorrect The correct form is "I will call you up." "I will call for you" is correct.

3.That old vase will...an attactive lamp-holder
a. compose
b.form
c. make
d.assemble
The key say it's C but I wonder why don;t we choose D? Assemble means to put together many different things to make one thing. THere is only one thing named here - the old vase.
4.The police are...the town for the missing vihicle
A.seeking
b.looking
c.investigating
d.combing
The key say it's D Yes. D is correct.

5. When he woke up , he realised that the things he had dreamt about could not ...have happened
a.possibly
b.likely
c.certainly
d.potentially
The key say it's A
but In both of above sentense I find it difficult to tell one from 4 answers in meaning . The answer key is correct. C would be a choice, if the sentence were "... had dreamt about certainly could not have happened." The other choices do not have the same meaning of "impossible"
6 The Government's present policy is seen as a ... to local democracy.
a. threat
b.harm
c. suppression
d.sneer
The key say it's A. Why don't we choose C? "supression of", not "suppression to"

7. One condition of this this job is that you must be ... to work at weekends
a.available
b.capable
c.acceptable
d. accesstable
The key say it's A, but I completely understand
8. Sparkling pools of water lay trapped among the rocks as the tide
a.removed
b.refilled
c.retired
d.recede
The key say it;s D .But I don't undersatnd what the sentence means. Look up the word "tide" in your dictionary.
9. According to the... of the contact , tenants must give six months notice if they intend to leave
a, laws
b.rules
c.terms
d.details
The key is B, so please help me find the difference between A & B
Thanks! contract? Actually, I would choose C: "terms of the contract" Contracts are legal agreements between 2 parties. Laws are passed by the government. Everyone must obey them. Rules are set by one party that is in control of another: a) parents set rules for their children, b) The rules posted at the swiming pool say "no diving," and "closed before 7:00 AM and after 7:00 PM"


Referring to Q2, does anyone actually say, "I will call for you"?
I have never heard such expression before.
Armstrong
Hi Armstrong - 
I will call for you doesn't refer to the telephone, but coming to your home to pick you up.

I too would have thought "terms" was correct for the contract.

Thanks everyone!

I'm sorry I was wrong when typing the last question. TERMS is corect.
