Welcome to our new blog!

Our new blog is up and running! We posted the first two pieces of information yesterday, and there will be more to come when we read some news that are related to languages, or anything we feel like sharing with you.

This blog will also keep you informed about Freelang’s website: what’s new on the site, and what we are up to. The updates and new dictionaries will still appear on the what’s new page of the site though.

Your contributions are most welcomed, please feel free to comment on the articles, or submit new articles (we will open an account for regular posters, along with a free email address @freelang.net or @freelang.com).

  1. Hi Beaumont!

    I saw your blog – and here is another dictionary: The American Heritage Dictionary from 1992, which Microsoft delivered with Office 1997 (En) as an add-in under the name “Microsoft Bookshelf Basics”

    give in

    1. To hand in; submit: She gave in her report.

    2. To cease opposition; yield.

    So there is no doubt – you are right!
    If an American Dictionary lists it as the first choice for explaining the sentence it must be because of unfamiliarity with the expression, that some say that it is wrong English.

    Perhaps the unfamiliarity with “give in” is due to the fact that it mostly is used in the past tense – I “gave in” my paper – ?
