korien_oct11Last week we looked at “mistake” as a noun. We can also use it as a verb.

“Did you mistake me for someone else?”
“I mistook the gas pedal for the brake.”

When you see (or hear or feel) someone or something, but think it is something or someone else, you have mistaken it. This is a good word for Halloween, because when you’re scared, you can mistake a shadow for a ghost!



誰か、もしくは何かを見て(もしくは聞いて、感じて)別のものと間違えた時、mistake forを使います。ハロウィーンで怖くなって影を幽霊と間違えることがあるので、この時期に便利な言葉ですね。
