How to Express and Accept an Apology in the English Language Leon Uris, an American novelist, once wrote that the ability of a person to atone has always been the most remarkable of human features. Indeed, expressing an apology - and accepting one - is an important aspect of human behaviour. We are expected to apologize when we have upset someone or caused them trouble in one way or another. The British like saying sorry a lot, even when an apology isn't really necessary or when they don't really mean it. Saying Sorry in English In English, there are several ways of apologizing. I'm sorry for being late. / I'm very sorry for being late. / I'm terribly sorry for being late. / I'm extremely sorry for being late. When you want to apologize for accidentally doing something, for example stepping on someone's foot or toes, you can say 'Sorry' or 'I beg your pardon'. He accidentally stepped on someone's toes. The expression 'I beg your pardon' is rather old-fashioned. A note: Speakers of American English will usually say 'Excuse me' in such situations.

Exact Synonyms According to one definition (attributed to Leibniz) two expressions are synonymous if the substitution of one for the other does not change the "truth value" of a sentence in which the substitution is made. In practice, some words are called synonyms, just because they are used to describe the same "fact" in different parts of the world. English is rich in synonyms because during the centuries it adopted a variety of foreign languages - most notably French, German and Latin. Now, what does this mean?
