  • And don't forget, at the end of this video, there's a full summary slide.

  • Fault is a noun, which means a mistake or problem in something we commonly refer to.

  • Technical faults.

  • Mechanical faults on electrical faults.

  • When talking about machinery or computers, for example, the train was delayed due to a mechanical fault.

  • Faults can also be used to talk about who is to blame for a mistake.

  • You'll often hear people say it's your fault.

  • It's his fault.

  • It's her fault or it wasn't my fault.

  • For example, it is completely my fault that this video is so awesome.

  • I do not apologize.

  • Finally, fault can be used in reference to what we believe is a negative part of somebody's personality or character.

  • But don't judge anybody too harshly, because remember, we all have our faults.

  • Thanks now for the noun floor, a floor is a mark or a blemish, which spoils something's appearance.

  • For example, this copy of the book has a tiny printing floor on the cover, which makes it very rare and very valuable.

  • A floor can also be a minor fault or weakness in something, making it less valuable or less effective.

  • And this is particularly common with thinking or reasoning words.

  • We can talk about a floor in an idea.

  • Ah, floor in an argument of Florida concept Ah, floor in a design, for example.

  • It's a nice idea, but it has a serious floor in it.

  • Finally, we can talk about a floor in someone's character or a character floor.

  • For example, my only character floor isn't I'm very short tempered.

  • Okay, let's stop for a second so I can tell you about the learner's questions playlist.

  • Every episode of learners questions is already there for you.

  • And if you have a question, maybe the answer is there already.

  • So go and have a look.

  • If you have a question for learners questions.

  • You can email us on learning the English at BBC dot co dot UK.

  • And don't forget, at the end of the video, there is a full summary slide.

  • Now let's talk about the noun weakness, which is an area of something that lacks resilience or strength.

  • For example, vampires have several weaknesses.

  • Garlic, sunlight, religious iconography or a steak through the heart like fault and floor.

  • A weakness can be something that makes something else less attractive or less effective.

  • For example, in my opinion, the weakness of texting is that it doesn't communicate body language, which is so important, finally like fault.

  • And floor weakness can also be used to describe a problem in someone's character.

  • For example, their love of money is a worrying weakness, in my opinion.

  • Thank you very much for your question, Helen.

  • I hope I answered it for you.
