    Remember: We see something static, unmoving. We also see the things around us, perhaps without paying much attention to them. We look at something in order to pay more attention to its appearance. We watch something when we want to know what happens (so therefore we generally watch something that is moving or that requires our attention). We use look when we want to direct someone's attention to something.)

    Such penalties result in a player being sent to an isolated area called the penalty box, after which the offender's team must operate a player short.

    When "short" comes after a noun, it means that there is not a great enough number of the noun as there usually is, or than is necessary. In your sentence about a game, perhaps there are normally 11 members of a team. The penalized team would be playing with one player short, that is, with 10 players instead of l1.

    Some other examples would be:

    "¢ Uh, oh. I'm 5 cents short. I need $1.00 to get on the bus, but I have only ninety-five cents. "¢ Candidate Brown was just 30 votes short of winning the election. His opponent won the election. His opponent had 2,660 but Brown had 2,631. "¢ May I please borrow an egg? I need three eggs to make the cake, but I'm one egg short. _______

    "Shortly" as an adverb is similar to "soon," as in:

    Please take your seats. The concert will begin shortly. The baby was born shortly after the new millennium began.

    Or, "shortly" is used with "speak" or "say" or "answer" to indicate a curt or impatient manner:

    She didn't want to be bothered and answered my question very shortly. When Bob spoke shortly to his son, the little boy began to cry.

    If the club already exists and you are inviting a new person to join, then you might say, "I'd like to invite you to join our English-speaking club."

    If you're hoping to start such a club, then perhaps: "I'd like to invite you to join a group of us with the idea of starting an English-speaking club."

    An 'honorary degree' is one where the university awards a person in the community or a graduate of the college for exceptional work in/contribution to a particular field. The person does not have to take courses or exams.

    Some of us know the feeling of waiting for 'test results'

    The feeling of waiting for a baby to arrive is very strange.

    I never forget the feeling of waiting in line at the unemployment office.

    Plz let me know khiêm tốn hơn là "tell".nếu là xin xỏ thông tin thì let me know; xin "chỉ dẫn" thì show/tell bình thường .. as in please tell me how to do something. Giống văn hóa minh thôi. Làm gì cho ai, và defer to their wishes thì Please let me know when/if you want that done. Một cái là "instruct" .. một cái là yều cầu hoặc cho thấy sẵn sàng "tiếp nhận", tùy tình huống (1) có đòi hỏi quá hay không hoặc (2) có "tôi tớ" quá hay không .. please tell me when .. đôi lúc cho phép họ "instruct" (có phần tôi tớ tone-wise
