A) She s phoned 3 times today
B) She phoned 3 times today

2.Meaning A) We use the present perfect specially to say that a finished event or action is connected with the present in some way. If we say that something has happened we are thinking about past and present at the same time. (Grammer for English Language Teachers,second edition, Cambridge university press,2010,p.440) B) We choose the past simple when we consider that the event ,state or action took place within a finished period of time and the event or action is completed. The difference between these two sentences goes back to their connection to the present.when we use ” Present perfect” , the action that has taken place in the past has some effects in present,like this example that the effect of these telephone calls is connected to present and we are expecting another call maybe in near future.On the other hand,when we use “Past simple”, we are talking about a completed action which has no effect on present.In this example when we use “phoned” ,we mean, the period of telephoning has finished at a certain time in past and the action is completed and so we are not expecting any more calls. (Practical English usage ,third edition/oxford university press/2009) |

2.Meaning A)A person who comes from a different country or another place and does not belong in a particular place. B)someone that you don??™t know ??“ a person from abroad or overseas We should be careful that we cant replace one of these two words with the other one as they are completely different concepts.
