What is the difference between linotype and monotype?
The linotype, commonly used in newspaper offices, casts a complete line of type. The operator sits before a keyboard resembling that of a typewriter. When he presses a key, a brass matrix drops into a receiver, and, when sufficient matrices have been set, the operator presses a lever, and this line of matrices is automatically cast into a line of letters. The other lines are set and cast in the same way. The matrices are automatically distributed to be set again. A single operator can set four thousand ems per hour of regular reading matter. The monotype is similar, and yet different, from the linotype. The operator sits in front of a keyboard, and each key when pressed makes an impression on a roll of paper similar to that used for the automatic piano-player. This roll is placed in another machine, which automatically casts and sets single type. The speed of the monotype is about that of the linotype. The monotype is admirably adapted to book work, partly because its work is as easily corrected as is that of hand-set type, while a correction made on the linotype requires the resetting and recasting of an entire line.

If you are just asking a general native speaker's question about whether one is correct or not in certain contexts, Otherwise, here's a more technical answer for non-native speakers. They are both prepositions (as in, words that indicate position relative to something else). 'In' is for when the… object in question is inside something else. "Where are you? I'm in the concert hall already." This means that the speaker is inside the building, waiting for his or her friend. 'At' is more general. It can mean inside, but if you're not a native speaker of English, it's difficult to know when this is true, so just avoid it. Use 'in' if you mean inside. 'At' means that the object in question has arrived or is there. "Where are you? I'm at the concert hall already." Then means that the speaker has already arrived there, waiting for his or her friend. It could (but not always) mean the speaker is inside the building or standing in the parking lot. But he or she has already arrived at the hall, and is somewhere within the area. Technically speaking, 'at' is so general this could also cover the speaker standing on top of the building (replacing 'on') or in tunnels underneath the building (replacing 'below' or 'under'), but of course these are less likely. It does, however, lend to some comical moments in television or movies, if they person listening on the other end of the phone doesn't realize that 'at' might actually mean the speaker is dangling over the building in a helicopter. At times, though, 'at' specifically means not inside. It can kind of mean 'until'. As in: "I stopped at the gates to the estate." This means the speaker went up to the gates, then stopped, not going inside. Obviously, you can't really stop inside the gates - you can technically say that to mean that you stopped in the process of passing through them, but native speakers would probably choose to express that as "I stopped in the middle of the gates" . The intricacies of English are so difficult. It really depends upon context and which verbs are used. But that's a general idea of the difference. Here are a few more examples of changing out one for the other: "I found an office chair I liked in Staples." vs "I found an office chair I liked at Staples." Here they are completely interchangeable and mean the same thing. You would have to go inside the store to get the chair, so 'at' automatically also means 'in'. "I am at the lake." vs "I am in the lake." Here they mean totally different things. If you are 'at' the lake, you are sitting around it somewhere. If you are 'in' the lake, you are swimming in the water. ( Full Answer )
The difference between that and what depends on how they are used. One example:. "That boy over there is very tall". "That" is in reference to a specific boy, the tall one. "That" is usually used to specify a particular person place or thing (noun).. "What boy?" When using "What" you are not speci…fying a particular boy, but asking which boy are we specifying. "What" is usually used to ask a question.. You may be asking the question due to hearing "what" used improperly in a sentence like "He is not the boy what I saw." In this case "what" was used in place of the proper choice of "that". ( Full Answer )
Were is a past tense of the verb to be. Where refers to location. Also, where has an h in it.
In actual use, probably none. Concise rules would frown on the pronoun splitting the negative verb pair "did not". In American English, the contraction is more common, "Didn't I say you would find nothing there?" It seems to carry the same import to say "Did I not say you would find nothing there?" …(inviting a confirmation) ( Full Answer )
"In to" should only be two words if it's part of a phrasal verb that ends with in (not into ), like the phrase jump in . When I ran into this question, I decided to jump in to answer it. Another example: "turn in" A) I turned my term report in to my teacher. - Correct B) I turned… my term report into my teacher. - Incorrect In sentence A, it's clear that I submitted my term report to my teacher. In sentence B, it sounds like I got my term report to transform into my teacher! Therefore, a knowledge of phrasal verbs is needed to decipher your question. Other phrasal verbs to which this may apply: break in, butt in, cut in, get in, give in, go in, hand in, kick in, put in, pull in, rush in, write in, zoom in For all the other verbs in the world, you can decide whether it's best to use either in or into , but usually not in to . I pour orange juice into my glass, not in to it. One exception of this is if "to" is part of its own verb infinitive (e.g. At the bank, he walked in to make ( inf. ) a deposit.). It's good to know if the "into" is followed a noun or a verb. It depends on if your verb is part of a phrase ending with in . You can cut into a checkout line, and you can cut into a piece of paper with scissors, but if you "cut in to" something, chances are you are interrupting or butting in, not using scissors. C) She came into the boutique. - Correct D) She came in to the boutique. - Awkward E) She came in to see what was on sale at the boutique. - Correct Sentences C and E are correct. In sentence E, "came in" is a phrasal verb and "to see" is a verb infinitive. There is a space between them because they are separate parts, whereas in sentence C, "into" is just a preposition in its own right. I have seen sentences like D in casual writing, but I assume it's just the writer's mistake. ( Full Answer )

If you meant "What is the difference between was and were?", both are the past tense of to be, but the difference is that was can only be used with a first-person singular pronoun (I), a third-person singular pronoun (he, she, or it), or with any singular noun that is alone. If it's neither of the…se it is were.

Analytically speaking these are different things but it is very hard to tell since one requires a special incident to be necessarily different. Here is an example. The Scenario: Wife and Husband in an argument Husband: Honey, I did this FOR YOU (In this case it is used as an action), why would …you think I would ever betray you. Wife: Your not, TO YOU(In this case TO YOU is being used as a declarative because the wife is pointing out her husband's opinion that she wholeheartedly disagrees with.) everything is a game, I have reached the point where I can't take your silly games anymore. Attempted description A thing or action is "for you" when it is intended to provide you with a benefit or desirable condition. A thing or action is "to you" when it has an impact on you. "To you" can also be used to indicate that something is being described from your viewpoint by another person, and that viewpoint is not necessarily how others see the same thing. ( Full Answer )
The phrases "have you", "do you", and "will you" refer to actions of the past, present, and future. "Have you ever eaten a hamburger?" asks if you've ever eaten a hamburger in the past, even if it only happened once in the distant past, regardless of whether you plan to in the future. "Do you …eat hamburgers?" asks if you generally eat hamburgers, perhaps as an ongoing activity. "Will you eat a hamburger?" asks if you plan to eat a hamburger in the future. Sometimes the speaker really wants to know "Will you eat a hamburger soon, before the next time you finish a meal?"; other times the speaker wants to know if you have chosen to never eat hamburgers again for the rest of your life -- you'll have to figure it out from the context.
