Assunto:  help me with collocations?
 
Mensagem: 

    Thank you guys, and sorry for being late; I was out with my wife buying a Christmas tree and balls to hung in its branches...more some clothes to go out these days.

 

    Well, previously I had submitted a question at a BBC Forum, here is the answer:

 

"  You've got most of them right, just check these:

 

     'to be on FILE' - to be on record is possible, but I don't think it's the expected answer.

     'to TAKE priority'

     'to CARRY out instructions'

     'to be UNDER guarantee'

     'to put in a GOOD word about/for someone'

     'to CONFIRM or deny'

     'to HITCH a lift'

"

 

 

    Like Dale had observed, there was some that weren´t right, and this guy answers match with the last ones of Dale.

    Again, thanks.

 

   PP.
