You are all here to learn #AmericanEnglish. What else are you interested in learning more about? Admin is interested in learning more about growing a vegetable garden. How about you?

Has something ever "dawned on you" that others thought was obvious? #AmericanEnglish


American English at State - Page 13 18813954_10155613538509123_1623855311715069220_n



I can't believe it!!  affraid

For me, "to go down on someone" is a sexual thing
(I know here it is "dawn on someone" but it's weird, isn't it?

~~ edit
I just checked and I'm right: "to go down to someone" exists in the sexual realm...
... necessary to have a good pronunciation LOL

~~~~ edit
According to the Cambridge Academic Content Dictionary, “down on someone/something” also exists -in American- with a "normal" meaning: ​
feeling angry or disappointed with someone or something:
Dad’s down on me since I scraped the car backing out of the garage.

Gérard I suppose that in that context "to dawn" is "to occur".

Muriel, "to dawn on someone" means to become apparent, to suddenly realize, to suddenly understand...

But what I wrote is: be careful with the pronunciation as there're a few other close different meanings.

Do you ever "draw a blank" when you're trying to remember a new word in #AmericanEnglish? Sometimes it can be difficult to remember new vocabulary. How do you keep track of new words so that you don't "draw a blank"?
