Confusing sentencesConfusing sentences

Sometimes in English,  we can find sentences whose structures are quite similar but with a totally different meaning. For example:   He threw the ball at me  vs  He threw the ball to me. In this case the only difference is the preposition. However, it causes a big change in meaning as you will be able to read in the answer key.

Napoleon and the Art of Diplomacy: How War and Hubris Determined the Rise and Fall of the French Empire

Napoleon and the Art of Diplomacy: How War and Hubris Determined the Rise and Fall of the French Empire

A small library could be stocked with books written about Napoleon the general, whose battles and campaigns have been studied extensively. Warriors, however, are not generally known for their diplomatic skills and Napoleon Bonaparte is no exception. After all, conquerors are accustomed to imposing rather than negotiating terms. For Napoleon, however, the arts of war and diplomacy meshed. Napoleon was often as brilliant and successful at diplomacy as he was at war, although at times he could also be as disastrous at the diplomatic table as he was on his final battlefield.

TTC Video - Writing and Civilization: From Ancient Worlds to Modernity

Can you imagine the world—or your life—without writing? From emails to street signs and newspapers to novels, the written word is so ever-present that we rarely stop to consider how it came to be.

Knowledge about biological entities and processes has traditionally been acquired by thousands of scientists through decades of experimentation and analysis. The current abundance of biomedical data is accompanied by the creation and quick dissemination of new information. Much of this information and knowledge, however, is represented only in text form--in the biomedical literature, lab notebooks, Web pages, and other sources.
