Under is similar in meaning to below, e.g.

Children under the age of twelve are not admitted. His in­ come is under £1,000 a year.

But there are differences in usage. If the meaning is "lower than and covered by" we use under (not below), e. g.

He put the letter under a book that was lying on the desk.

On the other hand if the distance lower is mentioned we generally use below, e.g.

The submarine travelled 100 feet below the surface of the water.

Under meaning "less than" is used to express time, e.g. We went from our house to Cambridge in under an hour. Under means also "governed by", "protected by", e.g.

In 1890 that country was under British rule and its soldiers served under the British flag.

It is also used to express certain states of being, e.g.

He is under treatment for rheumatism. The prisoner is un­ der guard. That farm has 200 acres under (= sown with) wheat. He is under sentence of death. The soldier showed great bra­ very under fire.

Under is used to express cover or disguise, e.g.

Samuel Clemens wrote under the name of Mark Twain.

Under is used as a prefix with the meaning "below", "not enough", "too small", e.g.

Unde1ground ; underdone meat; an undersized boy.

Under is an adverb in such sentences as:

The people were kept under by the tyrant. A huge wave struck the ship and it went under (= sank).

Until (till)

Until (more usually till) can be a preposition, e.g.

We won't be home till morning. He stayed till (until) long after midnight.

or a conjunction, e.g.

I will wait till (until) you come.


In most cases up expresses the opposite of down, e.g. He walked up the hill. They put up a flag.

It is very often used as an adverb with a variety of meanings, e.g.

The sun is up. Look up. The house is up at last. Plants come up in the spring. Wake up. Hurry up. Speak up. What time did you get up? I was up all night. The car is not far behind us, it will soon catch us up. Prices are going up. My time is up. You will have to pay up. The room is dirty; help me to clean it up.

With (TOJibKO npeMor)

With suggests (1) Accompaniment, e.g.

He came with all his family. Don't wear brown shoes with

a blue suit.

(2) Agreement (or disagreement), e.g.

I agree/disagree with him on most matters. I don't want to quarrel with you.

(3) An instrument, e.g.

Cut the bread with this knife. He hit the dog with a stick.

(4) Cause, e.g.

The old man was bent with age and dying with hunger.

(5) Manner, e.g.

He fought with bravery. He stood with his hands in his po- ckets.

(6) Possession (= "who (which) has"), e.g.

A girl with golden hair. A house with a large garden.

(7) Contents, e.g.

His pockets were filled with money.


Within has the meaning "inside", e.g. "Is anybody within?"

but in formal rather than colloquial English.

Within as a preposition is used to refer to time, e.g. I'll be there within (= in less than) an hour.

and in such expressions as:

to live within one's income; to be within hearing; within

sight of home; within the law.


Without in modern English does not mean "outside" (e.g.

Who is without?). Without means "not having", e.g.

Hob travelled without a ticket because he left home without


It is used with a gerund to give a negative meaning, e.g. He left without saying (= and did not say) good-bye.

Hob travelled without buying (= and did not buy) a ticket.

F ri e d a: A short time ago I had a very pleasant week-end at my friend Phyllis Cooper's house. Young Roger, that's Phyllis and Frank Cooper's little boy, had just had his fifth birthday. It was a rather special birthday for him, since as soon as an Eng­ lish child reaches the age of five he must start attending school. I was very interested to hear Frank and Phyllis discussing his education and I thought you might like to hear about it.

M r. P r i e st 1e y: I'm sure we shall. I think you will all like to get a little sidelight on English education. Please go on, Frieda.

F r i e d a: Well, it was only after a good deal of thoughtful discussion between Phyllis and Frank Cooper that they had finally decided that Roger should go to his local Primary School. Phyllis, to begin with, would have preferred Roger to go to one of the small "private" schools in the district.

"The fees aren't very high", she had said to her husband, "and he'll mix with much nicer children than he'll meet at the ordinary State Primary School". "I know the fees aren't high", had been Frank's answer, "but don't forget we have to pay for State schools through our rates and taxes. I don't hold with the idea of paying for the upkeep of a school and then not making use of it. Besides, when you talk about the "nicer" children at the private school don't you merely mean that their parents have got more money than most people?" "Perhaps I do, but some of the children at the Primary School don't come from very good homes, do they? I don't want Roger to pick up any bad habits of speech or a lot of bad manners".

Frank laughed. "Let's risk it. You mothers do so want your boys to be nice, clean, well-spoken little creatures, don't you? Personally, I think that if you and I give him an example of good speech and good manners, what he happens to see and hear at school won't really harm him very much".

"I'm afraid that argument doesn't hold water", answered Phyllis with a smile. "The things you said this morning when you couldn't find a fresh pair of socks in your drawer weren't exactly examples of polite speech, were they?"

"That's a very unfair remark, my dear", said Frank with a laugh; "but I didn't feel quite as fresh as a daisy first thing this morning".

"Besides", said Phyllis, "there's another thing about these State schools: the classes are so large. Mrs.Robinson says they have over forty in a class. Classes are much smaller at the private schools. Isn't that very much better for the children?" "I'm afraid", replied Frank, "that children of all ages do find themselves in larger classes in State schools than if they went to private schools; but I do know this, that nowadays Infant Teachers in State Primary Schools are very good. I do think they know their job and I believe they work wonders some­ times - even if they do have classes of over thirty. Look here, why don't you go to the Primary School and have a look round? They'll be quite glad to let you see the school".

So Phyllis and I called to see the Head Teacher of the Infants' Department and came away quite charmed. We both liked the Head Teacher's enthusiasm and quiet efficiency and above all we liked the teacher who was in charge of the five­ year-olds' class. The thirty children in the room were seated in small chairs around a number of low tables. They were all of them very busy and very interested in what they were doing. Some were cutting out small pictures with scissors (special blunt scissors, for hands and fingers that were not yet expert); some were solemnly colouring-in outline pictures with chalks; others were working with modelling clay. But when the teacher told them to stop what they were doing they did so with what seemed to me quite unusual rapidity - after all, I thought, there are thirty of them and there aren't any of them a day over five. The friendly but not over-excited conversation that took place as the scissors and other things were collected and put away gave us both the impression that here was a happy school which Roger would enjoy and in which any habits he learned would certainly be good ones.

The Head Teacher told us that in the Infants' Department the object was to introduce the children to the art of living together and to develop not only the skill of reading and writ­ ing and counting but also to train the hands, the body and the imagination. Drawing with coloured chalks and painting, dan­ cing in time to the music of the piano, the handling of scissors and modelling materials, the acting of little plays - in all these ways it seemed that Roger's days at school would be filled both usefully and happily. After that Phyllis talked no more of pay­ ing fees to a private school.

"Will you want Roger to stay to school dinner?" the Head Teacher asked Phyllis.

"What do you advise?"

"I think it's best if they start stay­ ing to school dinner right from the beginning", the Head Teacher said, "even though it does make the day seem rather long to them at first. As you know, the cost is very little and we take particular care that the infants, above all, get a really satisfying meal".

\ "Yes, I see", said Phyllis, a little ' doubtfully, "but Roger is rather fussy about his food. I'm afraid I've always

"THINGS THEY'RE tried to give him just the things I know

NOT USED TO" he particularly likes".

The Head Teacher smiled. She had heard remarks such as this hundred times before.

"Don't worry, Mrs.Cooper. We don't force the food down their throats, you know, I think it does them good sometimes to eat things they're not used to. Of course, he's bound to grumble - children always do grumble about school dinners. But after all, if Roger came home every day and said he liked school dinners better than your dinners I think you'd be quite upset, wouldn't you?" Phyllis laughed.

"They have milk in the morning, too, don't they?" she asked.

"Yes. A third of a pint - that's free, of course. By the way (it's a small point, I know, but then children's lives are made up of small points), you might give him a little practice before­ hand in the art of drinking through a straw. That's how we drink our milk in school. It's said to be the cleanest and healthiest way of doing it".

The great day arrived. Roger, having become an expert at the art of drinking cold milk through a straw and now looking as clean as a new pin - far cleaner and neater than he will ever look again for the rest of his schooldays -is about to begin the great adventure. It will never be known which of the two was the more nervous, Roger or his mother.

"I do hope he'll like it, Frank", she had said several times to her husband. And Frank had said cheerfully, "He'll just have to like it, my dear. After all, he's got to go to school on most days of the year for another ten or twelve years!"

"Yes, but some people have such trouble. Peter next door was very difficult about going to school when he first started".

"Only for a little while. They say he's as keen as mustard on school now and can hold his own with any of the boys. Stop worrying, my dear, and remember he'll be in the hands of people who are probably much better at handling children than you or I will ever be".

Phyllis recalled to mind the teacher she had seen on her visit to the school and felt happier for a while. But even though she told herself she was being silly, she was still as anxious as ever. So, holding his mother's hand very tightly, Roger walked with Phyllis and me along the road to Greenfields County Primary School. On the way to the school we were joined by a friend on a similar job. Mrs.Jenkins was taking her little girl Susan to school for her first day. The two mothers spend the rest of the ten-minutes journey assuring Roger and Susan in bright, cheerful voices that nothing in the world was nicer for

them than that they should be going to school together.

"You can play with Susan at playtime", Phyllis told Roger.

And Susan's mother said to Susan, "You can sit next to Roger at dinner-time, can't you? That'll be nice for you, won't it?" Both children dutifully agreed that it would indeed be very nice, but what views they really held about it nobody would know.

In a fairly large room at the school the Head Teacher was receiving the newcomers. As each child's name was called the mother was told to slip quietly away. Susan was as quiet as a mouse but one small boy was protesting against the whole ed­ ucational system by roaring at the top of his voice.

"Take him away", said the Head Teacher quietly to one of her assistants. The small boy was led off to a distant class­ room, his roars getting gradually fainter, and the remaining mothers eyed their own children, each secretly hoping that her child would not "make a scene".

Roger's name was called. He, too, passed into the class­ room and into the charge of the pleasant young woman whom we had seen on our first visit, and Phyllis went home to a house that seemed, after five years of Roger's daily presence in it, strangely quiet.

Phyllis and I were at the school gate well in time to meet Roger when his day ended at half past three. She was bursting with impatience to see him, and even began to worry when he was not one of the first five children to come through the school door. He came at last and, thank goodness, all smiles. His teacher, who come to see him across the road, said he had

been as good as gold. He had had, he said, a lovely time and a lovely dinner and teacher had told them all a lovely story. And they were to bring some flowers to school to decorate the class-room and could he please pick some from the garden as soon as he got home... And so ended Roger's first day at school. H o b: Do you know the story of the little boy who went to school for the first time? When he got there, there were three entrances: on one it said GIRLS, on the second BOYS and on the third MIXED INFANTS (because small boys and girls worked together in that department). When he got home he said, "Mother, I'm not a little boy now; I'm a mixed infant".
