TO SWEAR (2): meaning and examples

Good morning. Yesterday we looked at one meaning of the verb to swear (to use deliberately offensive words). Today we will look at another meaning of this verb. Meaning 2: to make a statement that you are telling the truth or to make a promise to do something. Example 1: Jack: Did you hear that Nancy and Carlos have separated? Daniel: That can't be true. They are a perfect couple. Jack: I swear it's true. Nancy just told me herself. Example 2: Even though he was convicted of 30 years in prison for murdering his ex-wife, he swears that he didn't do it. Example 3: Laura: Honey...promise me that you will never drink alcohol again. George: Okay dear. I promise; I swear that I will never drink another drop of alcohol again. Remember that swear is an irregular verb. Do you know what the past of swear is? The answer is after my signature. Please post questions about today's content in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.
