and/or--Use this form only with three selections: one, or the other, or both. In most writing the distinction is not useful.

assure, ensure, insure--Assure means "to convince," "to guarantee." Insure means "to guard against loss." Ensure means "to make certain." Assure and ensure are often used interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings. Assure takes a direct object--usually a person or group of persons. You assure someone that something has been done. Ensure does not imply that you are giving assurance to someone else. You ensure that something has been done.

Please insure this package.
Ensure that you lock your car. ]

because--This conjunction is definite and specific in its meaning of "since" or "for the reason that." It is used solely to express cause or reason.
[ He left the party early because he was tired.
As a subordinating conjunction, because should not be used to mean "that" (a relative pronoun); say "the reason is that . . ." not "the reason is because . . . " ]

cite, site, sight--A reference is cited. A site is a place. Sight is vision.

compare to, compare with--Compare to means "assert a likeness."

What's Prettier Than Freckles
An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws. "You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fellow.
Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head. His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles," she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful."
The boy looked up, "Really?"
"Of course," said the grandmother. "Why just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles."
The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered, "Wrinkles."

to give somebody a hand
If you give somebody a hand then you help them to do something. It's often used in
reference to physical help (helping someone move house, or helping someone paint their
flat), but it can be used for non-physical things too (helping someone with their homework,
or helping someone to write a letter).You can ask someone to give you a hand or offer
to give someone else a hand.
Christian: I'm moving to a new flat on Saturday.Could you possibly give me a hand to move
everything from here to there, please?
Franz: No problem. I'll be glad to help!
Christian: Thanks, Franz. And if you ever need a hand with anything, just ask.

too good to miss
Christine: "I bought sixteen packets of biscuits at the weekend. They're usually 60Rs. each,
but  were on offer at 30Rs. each. They were too good to miss."
Claudia: "Wow! I'll have to buy some."
You can say that something is too good to miss when you really just have to have it. If a product or service is on offer at a price that is much lower than you would normally expect to pay and so you want to buy it then you can say that it is too good to miss. Often, someone will buy something that they wouldn't normally buy because it is just too good to miss.
I bought Microsoft Encarta last year because it was on sale at an amazing price - it really
was too good to miss. But there's no way I would have bought it at its normal selling price.

Direct Question - If you were going to die to night, what you would regret not having told anyone? Why haven’t you told them yet?
