VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
Here are some more examples:
Many people think that the word criticize means that you say something negative or "bad." This is not true.
While people can certainly say negative or bad things, and they can express these in criticisms, to give a criticism of something simply means to state your opinion.
Whether this opinion is good or bad, this simply qualifies or clarifies what type of criticism you are making. The word itself, is neutral.
In the United States, it is common to see signs that are written in small grocery stores (often by hand) which will say "Can goods," which of course refers to food which is stored in a can such as vegetables or fruits.
Unfortunately, in proper English there is no such thing as "can goods," -- instead, the term is canned goods, because "the goods" (in this case the food) have been canned via a process known as canning.
Moral vs. Morale
When you look at such things as people’s beliefs and values, what they "stand for" and what they do not, these are called morals. Example:
"She has very high morals. She won’t cheat on any test."
By contrast, the word morale refers to the state of one’s spirit, overall well being, confidence, or how they feel in general. Example:
"Morale was high among the workers, even though there was much work yet to do."
