Dear all,I’ve cleared some shelves off in the bathroom.
Right, one bathroom.
I ran into the above at another forum, and the threader and I are discussing the meaning of "clear off" in this case. We found:
1 The Oxford Dictionary states that "clear off" means "to make sth empty and clean by removing things or throwing things away".
2 The learner's Dictionary says that "clear off" means "to remove things from (an area or surface)".
Thus, we infer two meanings of the original.
1 I've cleared something from some shelves in the bathroom.
2 I've removed some shelves in the bathroom to make it empey.
Now could you tell me which one is correct? Thanks.
