British American and  English

Lesson 1

Birinin tam doğru olduğunu söylemek kolay değil tabi ki. Biz burada bazı farkları işlemeye çalışacağız.

In British English:

Present Perfect, geçmişte başlayıp etkisi hala devam eden eylemler için kullanılır.

I've broken  my leg. It hurts very much. Can you help me call the doctor? ( 3. halinin kullanıldığına dikkat edin!. )


In American English :

                    
I broke my leg. Can you help me call the doctor?( 2. halinin kullanıldığına dikkat edin!. )

“already, just and yet” Kullanımları :

British English:

I've just finished my lunch
We've already seen that film
Have you finished your lunch yet?

American English: (Yukarıdaki zarflar, genelde fiilin 2. halleri ile kullanılır )

I just finished my lunch OR I've just had lunch        (“ have “ kullanılmadığına dikkat edin!)
We've already seen that film OR We already saw that film.
Have your finished your lunch yet? OR Did you finish your lunch yet?

Lesson 2

Saatlerde geçe- kala kullanımında past / to vardır :

 

e.g.

 In American English :
