TO MISS-1 (REVISION): meaning and examples

Hello Everybody. I hope you enjoyed your weekend.

This week we will concentrate on different uses and meanings of the incredibly useful English verb to miss. We originally covered this topic in March of 2004.

One of the more common meanings of the verb TO MISS is to not be present for someone or for a scheduled event.

Example 1:
We were so late to the Barça-Madrid match that we missed the first half.

Example 2:
I would never want to miss the annual company Christmas dinner; I always have a great time.

During the rest of this week, we will look at other meanings of miss, some of which you may already know and others which may be new to you.
