Difference between Snoring and Apnea

Snoring or Apnea

That moment is very awkward when your life partner snores while sleeping with you even on a honeymoon. It sounds beyond funny when you want to have sex with your partner, but because of this irritating thing your mood automatically changes. But you know what, when you love someone truly you don’t even consider this bullshit. You fall in love with all weird habits like this of your partner. Snoring is that the husky and weird sound that happens once your respiratory is part occluded in how when sleeping. Apnea means that total stoppage or suspension of respiratory quickly for a few seconds as a result of complete obstruction of the airway. Snoring may be an abnormal sound, whereas symptom is a disorder. Snoring is an associate horrific symptom indicating patient may well be littered with sleep disorder, however not all snorers suffer from sleep disorder.

  1. Ron Mason owns a chain of supermarkets. He's made a lot of money.
  • a few and a little mean a small quantity

  2. many problem
  3. a few people
  4. a few buildings
  5. much money
  6. much trouble
  7. a little sunshine

Some or Any

Basic Use

  • 'Some' and 'Any' go before a plural or uncountable noun 
  1. There was a bowl and some cornflakes on the table, but there wasn't any milk.
  • We can also use 'some' and 'any' without a noun
  1. Trevor wanted some milk, but he couldn't find any.

  • We normally use 'some' in positive sentences and 'any' in negative sentences or ones with a negative meaning

The Passive Form with Of


  • We use the possessive of a noun in phrases like the Boy's name and Vicky's room. We form the possessive like this

Singular noun:                     Boy > Boy's , Vicky > Vicky's
Plural noun ending in s:       Boys > boys' , Tourists > Tourists'
Plural noun not ending in s:  Men > Men's , Children > Children's 

  • We can use the possessive form with another noun or on its own

  1. I've met Rachel's family, but I haven't met Vicky's.

My Mine, Your Yours


Mark:  Why have you brought your work home? We're going out.

Sarah:  I'll do it later. Let's go now. Shall we take my car?
Mark:  Well, I'd rather not take mine. I think there's something wrong with it.
(My, mine, your, etc express possession and similar meanings. My car means the car belonging to me; your work means the work you are doing. My comes before a noun, e.g. my car. We use mine on its own)

My, Your, etc             Mine, Yours, etc            
It's my car.                   It's mine.               (1st person singular)
Here's your coat.          Here's yours.        (2nd person singular)
That's his room.            That's his.             (3rd person singular)
It's her money.              It's hers.

That's our table.             That's ours.           (1st person plural)
Are these your tickets.   Are these yours?  (2nd person singular)
It's their camera.            It's theirs.             (3rd person plural)

This, That, These and Those


  • We use 'this' and 'these' for things near the speaker. we use this to 'point' out something here near to you. 'This' goes with a singular or uncountable noun, e.g. this report. 'These' goes with a plural noun, e.g. these results. 

  1. I'm just having a look at this printout. These figures aren't very good.

  • We use 'that' and 'those' for things further away. 'That' goes with a singular or uncountable noun, e.g. that furniture. 'Those' goes with a plural noun, e.g. those curtains.

  1. That table is nice isn't it.
  2. I don't like those chairs.

  • We can leave out the noun if the meaning is clear.

  1. I'm just having a look at this. 
  2. That's nice, isn't it?
  3. Last month's figures were nasty but these are worse.

Using THE with place names

Man:     Could you tell me where the Classic Cinema is, please?
Rachel:  Yes, it's in Brook Street. Go along here and take the second left.
( whether a name has 'the' depends on the kind of place it is - for example, a street (Book Street) or a cinema (the Classic Cinema), a lake (Lake Victoria) or a sea (the North Sea) )

Use of Quite a, Such a and What a

After quite,such and what we can use a phrase with a/an, e.g. a game. There is often an adjective as well, e.g. such a good team.

Very, Quite, Rather, etc

  • A/an goes before very,fairly,really, etc.

  1. It's a very old house.
  2. It's a fairly long walk.
  3. I made a really stupid mistake.

  • But 'a/an' usually goes after quite.

  1. It's quite an old house.
  2. There was quite a crowd.

  • A/an can go either before or after 'rather'
  1. It's a rather old house OR It's rather an old house.

  • We can also use very,quite,rather, etc + adjective + plural or uncountable noun.

  1. They are very old houses.
  2. This is quite nice coffee.

Using A or An

Sarah:  Of course I haven't forgotten. But remind me where we're eating.

Usage of The

  1. This man is in prison.

  • We use 'the' when we mean the prison as a specific building.

Using The with Plural Nouns

Look at these examples..

Jessica: I like music, classical music, I mean. And I love parties, of course.
(We can use a plural noun (e.g. cars, Parties) or an uncountable noun (e.g. ice hockey, music) with 'the'. I love parties means that I love all parties, parties in general.)
