(By the way, did I write the sentence above correctly?) 1. You should carry/bring an umbrella with you. 2. Many tourists carry/bring an umbrella in case it rains. (you can suggest some other sentences, if you want.. Id be pleased!) 2. 12-Jul-2006, 19:43 #2 Join Date May 2006 Posts 1,335 Hi, Lenka, Id choose carry in both cases. Bring implies some movement in the direction of the speaker,eg Why dont you ever bring your pictures (to show us)? May I bring my friends to dinner? Bring does not specify HOW the delivery is done. Carry often implies holding things in hands or on shoulders. I have not looked up any sources, just IMHO.
