To do the homework or to make the homework? And why? Thanks.
A student does his/her homework. That is a set expression just like: To do laundry, to do housework, etc.
To do the homework.
"Make" is a verb whose meaning is realted to "create".
You don't "create" the homework (obvious reasons xD, a teacher gives you the homework), you "do" the homework (after receiving it).
I think that's the reason. But, you should wait until a native speaker answer your cuestion.
Totally agree with you Cach, except "make your bed"?? you aren't creating anything, isn't English just great!!
But, when you "make your bed", it looks like a brand new bed xD.
Hadn't thought of that one!
My dear friends, just till now I know that it could be said in both ways, even if I percieve isn't correct, but I don't know why?
The WR dictionary doesn't help me so much to clear this doubt.
Separate names with a comma.
