<<Composite thread created by merging relevant threads from December 2005, May 2006, December 2006 and November 2007>> Today I was reading a book and it said Jeff : Mom, I'm going out. Mother : Wait a mimute! You should bring an umbrella. It's been raining. Since I thought it should be "take" instead of "bring" I'm posing this question. Could anyone let me know what the answer is? Thanks in advance.
