  • To know the spelling or pronunciation of a word, ask: How do you spell/pronounce the word?
    To find out the Telugu meaning of an English word, ask: What is the meaning of the word? Or What does the word mean?
    To find the meaning of a word, ask: What is the English word for?
  • To ask someone to do something for you without sounding rude:
    Use the imperative form to give orders, warnings and advice:
    Be quiet!Listen to me carefully!
    We can soften the imperative with "let's" or "please":
    Let's go now.Please listen to what I'm saying.
    2. Use a modal verb to change the mood, to turn an order into a request:
    "You should help her" is more polite than "Help her!“
    Could you make me some tea?Can you come here please?Will you shut the door please?Would you wait here until the doctor is ready for you?
    3. Use an introductory phrase:
    Here are some common ways of phrasing an order, in order of the least direct to the most direct:
    Would you mind moving your car? It's obstructing the passage.
    Do you think you could park your car somewhere else?
    I'd like you to move your car.
    I want you to move your car.
