What is an error in English? The concept of language errors is a fuzzy one. I’ll leave to linguists the technical definitions.

1. Read the following passage then answer the questions. ANALOGUE AND DIGITAL NETWORKS Digital technology in the telephone network is nothing new. Take all the relays in older exchanges as an example. Relays are either "off" or "on", and there is no state in between these. Suitable combinations of relays could build up and "remember" numbers - perhaps a far-fetched example, but in was digital, so it will serve! What is new is the transfer of speech digitally. In other words, the sound we make when we speak is converted to digits and sent out on to the network. In...
To extract this temporal information from a sentence, it must be parsed into a semantic representation which captures the meaning of tense, temporal adverbs, and temporal connectives.

The inspiration for The Ultimate Phrasal Verb Book came about when a student asked me for a textbook to help her learn the meanings of common phrasal verbs. I had nothing to offer. The only textbook focusing on common verbs that I could give her contains not one phrasal verb — it teaches arise but not get up, awake but not wake up, seek but not look for.

You will find certain words or phrases criticized here listed in dictionaries. Note carefully labels like dial. (dialectical), nonstandard, and obsolete before
assuming that the dictionary is endorsing them. The primary job of a dictionary is to track how people actually use language. Dictionaries differ among
themselves on how much guidance to usage they provide; but the goal of a usage guide like this is substantially different: to protect you against patterns
which are regarded by substantial numbers of well-educated people as nonstandard....
As may be obvious by now, it is helpful in the understanding of this book to see the earth
as having a single soil (as it has a single atmosphere), nearly all of it 10,000 or more years
“old,” or in development, since the bulk of its surface “parent material” was laid down. In addition to those cited by Hamaker, some other examples of results obtained with
ground gravel (mixed rock) materials may help illustrate the great potential to restore
youthfulness and productive fertility to any and all soil....
The authors of the articles, while they mention a number of the elements in the dust, think
of it as a “liming” material rather than a broad-spectrum remineralization material.
Significantly, they observe: “Use of cement kiln dusts for soil liming is not a new idea, but it
seems to have received little attention and the relative merits of the dust and of conventional
liming materials have not been well studied.

Perhaps one day the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center will stumble upon the dust’s
value for growing bigger and healthier soil organism populations, crops, forests—even a
fading human race. Someone, perhaps the U.S. Congress, should probably inform them
immediately, however. John Hamaker and this writer have tried at length to communicate
with many USDA people, including the Secretary and Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, the
Chief of the Forest Service.
