  • I loooved this post!
    I learned this very subtle difference in meaning when I was 12 and I could not understand why on earth most grammar books tend to overlook this significant change in meaning for both combinations. Two very clearly different meanings.
    Many kudos on this post.
    Keep up with the great job!

  • I really like and appreciate your contribution. I am into the same kind of thing and I also made a short exercise exemplifying the difference between the two. Fascinated by corpora work and time permitting would like to do more of it. my exercise was based on a small specialised corpus for students of tourism that I compiled myself for the purpose of my master of science thesis. Patterns mean all for a language and make all the difference to the meaning and students’ awreness of the fact needs to be raised by a lot of examples and practical work that corpus exercises enable.
    My best
