Hi guys! Dan from BBC Learning English here with this week’s Learner Question. Find out what it is after this.

OK! This week’s Learner Question comes from Tugba from Turkey, who writes: “Hello, I would like to know the difference between wear, put on and dress.” It’s a good question, Tugba, and three very confusing words. I hope you like the answer. Here it comes.

So, when you wear clothes, shoes or jewellery, you have them on your body. You can also wear your hair in a particular style. For example, I’m wearing a green shirt and a silver wedding ring. I usually wear my hair short.

There is another meaning to wear, which is: become used and weaker over time, like the phrasal verb wear out. For example, I need to buy some new shoes. My old ones are getting worn out. This can also be applied to humans when they become tired. After a long day at work, I might say, I’m worn out. I need to go home.

When you put clothes on, you place them on your body in order to wear them. Also, when you’ve finished wearing them, you take them off. First you put on, then you wear them, then you take them off. For example, this morning I put on this green shirt, and later I’ll take it off.

You can also put on weight. This means to gain or accumulate kilograms. The opposite is to lose weight. For example, I thought I was going to put on weight on holiday last week, but I actually lost weight because I went swimming every day.

When you dress, you put clothes on. If you dress up, then you wear smarter clothes than usual. Likewise, if you dress down then you wear less smart clothes than usual. We also talk about getting dressed as an alternative to the verb dress. And there’s little difference between them. For example, I need to dress. The taxi’s coming in twenty minutes. Or, I need to get dressed. The taxi’s coming in twenty minutes. No big deal.

Other things you can dress are other people, such as children, you can dress a wound by cleaning it and covering it with a bandage and you can dress a salad by adding oil and vinegar to it.

I hope that answers your question Tugba. Thank you very much for writing to us. If anybody else out there has a question for Learners’ Questions, you can email us on: learning.english@bbc.co.uk.
