1. He called the judge.

2. He shout to the judge.
3. He made a phone call to the judge.

(Does #1 mean #2 or #3?)

1 and 3 are the same.

In 2, shout is the wrong verb. It means to speak to in a loud voice.
===================
1. He called the judge.

2. He shouted to the judge.
3. He made a phone call to the judge.

(Thank you for your help....Does #1 mean #2 sometimes according to the context?)

  • English -

    No.

  • English -

    Thank you. Then if somebody wants to shout to me on the street, what expressions does he have to use with 'call'?

    1. He talked to me.
    2. He shouted to me.
    3. He spoke to me in a loud voice.
    4. He called me while I was walking on the sidewalk.
    5. He called ________.

    (What expressions should I use? Does #4 mean that he made a phone call to me? Or does #4 mean that he talked to me loudly?)

  • English -

    1. He talked to me implies that he used an ordinary tone of voice and was standing near you.

    2 and 3 mean about the same thing.

    4. He called me while I was walking on the sidewalk.
    This means he made a phone call to you.

    But--

    He called to me while I was walking on the sidewalk -- means that he was near you and used a loud voice to get your attention.
