Q:The common objection to seniority pay is, “It’s rewarding dead wood!” My response is, “Why do you hire dead wood? Or why do you hoe love wood and kill it?” có nghĩa là gì?
A:I don”t understand the last line. It has at least one error and doesn”t make sense. Seniority pay. An employee who has been with the company a long time gets extra pay. Dead wood. In this context, it means the employees receiving the pay don”t do their jobs or at least very well. The speaker is saying that it doesn”t make sense to pay people more, to work less. They also are questioning the hiring practices that lead to the company having those employees.

Q:When do you say I”ll go on to the next item.”?e.g. If there are no objections, I”ll go on to the next item. Can I use that expression while teaching something for class or something?
A:“If there are no objections, I”ll go on to the next item.” This sounds like something in a business meeting.If you say “move on” it sounds more natural than saying “go on”. For teaching you should say”If there are no questions, I”ll move on to the next topic.”Again, if you say “move on” it sounds more natural. Normally you teach topics not items, so you should say topic here.
Q:“They raised their objections TO the company plan.”Is it possible to replace “to” with “at”? If not, please tell me why.
A:If you want to say “at” instead of “to,” you need to change the word “company” to “company”s,” and here is why.The sentence “They raised their objections to the company plan,” is very clear. The subject is “they,” and the object is the plan that this company has drawn up, which is very clearly understood. But if you change “to” to the word “at,” we get “They raised their objections at the company plan.” This sentence is not as clear. The subject is still “they,” but the object is no longer clear. It could be a plan to form a new company, etc. So if you change the word “company” to “company”s,” the “s at the end of the word shows that the plan belongs to the company, and the object of the sentence is clear again. So, put it all together and you get this:”They raised their objections at the company”s plan.” Great sentence. You can also take out the word “at” and use “against” while still using the “s at the end of “company.”Hope this helps you 🙂
