Let's begin with the basic definition of this firm. The basic definition of the verb to put is to place something in a location. Examples. Put your bag over there. Don't put your feet on the sofa. Let's look at some congregations for this firm. No present. Put foots past. Put past participle. Put progressive putting. Let's talk about some additional meanings for the verb to put. The 1st 1 is to write to write examples. Put your name on this line. She put her name on the list. So when we say put in this way, we refer to writing. So you're adding some information to a written document or a typed document as well. So can mean to write or like to type information. So put your name on this line means, like write your name or type your name on this line. In the second example sentence she put her name on the list means the same thing. She wrote her name on the list, or she added her name to a list. In some way, it means writing information. Okay, let's go on to these second additional meeting. The second additional meaning is to use words to express something to use words to express something. Examples. How should I put this? You're putting it quite simply so we can replace the word put with express like, How should I express this in the first example? Sentence. But we use put because put sounds much less formal than express. How should I express this? It sounds way too formal, way too polite. Instead, we say, How should I put this? We use that expression when we're not quite sure how to say something like we're may be talking about a sensitive topic and we don't know the correct words to use or it's difficult to explain. You can say, How should I put this in the second example sentence. You're putting it quite simply, it means you're expressing things quite simply, so maybe it's a complex situation, but the listener is explaining things or expressing things maybe to simply so the speaker in this case could say, you're putting it quite simply. Okay, let's go on to the third meaning the third meaning is rather open and kind of vague, which is to cause to be in a situation to cause to be in a situation. Let's look at some examples. This change puts the whole company at risk. You're terrible driving puts us all in danger. So in these examples we see put is used to refer to a situation that some group of people or some person is caused to be in. So in the first example sentence, this change puts the whole company at risk. This change causes the whole company to be at risk in a situation of risk in a condition of risk we use put to refer to that to refer to being caused to be in the situation of risk. The second example sentences the same. You're terrible driving. This is the reason why the people are in danger in this example sentence. You're terrible. Driving puts us all in danger. You're terrible. Driving causes us all to be in a condition of danger. That's very clumsy, but we use the verb put to make this quite short and easy to say. You're a terrible driving puts us all in danger. Okay, There are so many variations so many phrase over bs to use with Put U S O. Check a dictionary for more these air. Just a few I'm going to introduce, but check and dictionary for this. The first variation for the verb put is put aside to put aside. So to put aside means to stop thinking about something to seize or to pause and activity while you do something else. Examples. Put aside your worries and relax for a day. I put my phone aside and tried to focus on my work. So in both of these example sentences, we see that one thing is kind of being moved away from the focus. So, for example, in the first example sentence, put aside your worries. It means, like stop thinking about your worries like put those to the side in your mind. Like like don't think about those things for a while. So in the second example sentence, I'm talking about my phone where I'm saying I can literally put my phone aside, put my phone to the side of the thing I'm doing and focus on my work. I put my phone aside so we can use this to talk about a concept in our minds or to talk about a physical object as well. Okay, let's go on to the next variation. So the next variation is to put someone down. It means to disrespect someone, or to make fun of someone to make them feel bad about themselves. Some examples Don't put down your classmates. It's rude. His boss keeps putting him down in front of his co workers. So in both of these examples, we see situations where one person is being disrespected by another person. So don't put down your classmates. It's rude. So this, in this case, the listener is maybe a kid in school who is disrespectful to his or her classmates. So a parent or a teacher might say, Don't put down meaning Don't disrespect your classmates. Don't be mean to your classmates. Don't make fun of your classmates so you know, be kind to them. In other words, don't put down your classmates. You could also say, Don't put your classmates down if you like. That's fine, too. In the second example sentence we see a work situation like his boss always puts him down in front of his co workers means the boss and disrespects this person in front of his co workers. So it's a disrespectful situation, thinking, but one point about this, the expression to put someone down refers to disrespect with regard to humans. However, when talking about animals like we had to put the cat down, we had to put the dog down. It means usually due to some serious sickness or some serious injury or illness. Ah, the owners of the pet, usually a pep or the animal, decide that the pet should have doctor assisted death. So to put down an animal means to choose to allow the animal to die peacefully instead of suffering. So we use that expression. I had to put my cat down. This is a much more soft expression than, uh, the doctor killed my cat, which is essentially what happens. But it's because of some kind of suffering or some kind of illness or injury the owner wants to prevent. We used the expression to put an animal down in those cases. We do not use this for people we don't say had to put my brother down that we do actually have an expression for babies which which we use when we put babies to bed like I'm going to put down the baby for bed. We do have that the Please be cautious of the differences between animals and humans. With this expression to put someone down ah has very different meanings. Okay, let's go on to the next variation, which is to put up with to put up with means to tolerate something examples I don't want to put up with this crazy schedule anymore. Don't put up with their bad behavior in these examples put up with refers to tolerating or being able to stand something are continuing to live with something in the first example Sentence I can't put up with this crazy schedule anymore. Means I don't want to live with this crazy schedule anymore. I can't stand it. I don't want to do it anymore. In the second example, sentence don't put up with their bad behavior. It means don't tolerate their bad behavior. So I put up with something. Means like to continue living with something, and we often see it in the negative form as it don't put up with something. Okay, so those air a few new ways I hope to use the verb put. I hope that you found something new.
