Hello what is the difference between a chef and a cook?

Another question: If we have a sentence: It is mary's and john's birthday today do we put apostrophe where I put it?

Can we say: He said in he camera or he said to the camera? (On TV)

Do we say he lied on the bed or he lied himself on the bed?

  1. Hello what is the difference between a chef and a cook?
    Chefs are usually trained at special schools, such as the Culinary Institute of America in New York state. Cooks are usually thought of as anyone who prepares meals! I was more of a cook when I was fixing meals for my family, before my children left home and went off to live their own lives.

    Another question: If we have a sentence: It is mary's and john's birthday today do we put apostrophe where I put it?
    If Mary and John were born on the same day, you'd write, Mary and John's birthday... But if their birthdays are on separate days, you'd write, Mary's and John's birthdays...

    Can we say: He said in he camera or he said to the camera? (On TV)
    It would be better to say this: He said it on camera

    Do we say he lied on the bed or he lied himself on the bed?
    The verbs "lie" and "lay" can be very confusing. This chart may help: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/notorious/lay.htm
    So you would say, He lay on the bed.
