  3. Stella, the anonymous is right. Put to birth could be seen as a woman about going into labour. The put to bed to me means laying one on the bed.

    1. Exactly
      And those anonymous on my matter
      It is “You can’t eat your cake and have it” NOT “ You can’t have your cake and eat it”
      Life’s a learning process, I’m still learning and ever open for corrections. You should be too.

      Learn, unlearn and Relearn

    2. @Adeun it is actually 'You can't have your cake and eat it'

      I thought it was correct the way you put it also until I read it in a newspaper 3weeks ago.

    3. AdeunOluwa, I used to say "You can't eat your cake and have it" as I was taught is school but actually the correct thing so say is: You can't have your cake and eat it too" I argued with friends when I heard British PM John Majors said it on TV until I went to confirm it on the internet

    4. JIL, Nobody thought you that in school.
      You learnt that from your friends.

  7. To put to birth means going into labour. That is, when a woman is about to give birth. The corrector's "give to birth" meaning is not totally correct.
    Let us just say "give birth" if we want to report the arrival of a patter of tiny feet.

    To put to bed has different meanings, which depend on the context. The corrector's "put to bed" is right in that context.

    We can say "the woman that is about to put to birth has been put to bed" OR simply "TBoss has given birth and has been put to bed to rest"

    1. What are you saying? Which one is the corrector’s “GIVE TO BIRTH” again, where did you see that one?

      Delete
    2. There's no 'give to birth' there. If there was, it would be very wrong. Talmbout "is not totally correct".

    3. Anon, you have sha gotten the gist. Shikena. Keep it moving.

  8. Put to birth is the correct expression.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Absolutely correct. Put to birth is for a woman that just delivered a baby.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Put to bed is to help someone, for example, a child go to bed. While put to birth is when a woman delivers a baby

    ReplyDelete
  11. Who grammar epp.

    The woman don born. EOD 😀

    Stella this your meme be looking like Tupac's ancestor. 😀😀😀😀

  12. *usage.

    Put to birth is dodgy.There is some contention amongst English Language purists over the existence of that phrase though it is used to refer to giving birth.To be on the safe side,why not simply use 'have a baby' or 'give birth'?

    Put to bed means to help someone to bed or to conclude or end.

    1. Kami my love. Your word on this matter is final.

      Delete
    2. Thanks Kami. Neither is correct Stellz. Whether in archaic or contemporary English. It's a Naija invention similar to "How was your night?" A woman "gives birth to [a] child/children" or was "delivered of a baby". Put to bed is contextually correct when it refers to a bed and sleep though. Both a child and sick/worried adult can be "put to bed" but shove "put to birth" as a phrase in reference to a woman who just had a baby in the LAWMA trash van where it belongs. Hian! Biko lemme go back to my vernacular default settings mbok. Stella and ndi Grammarians, una doh o.

    3. Kami Kami i second your opinion.

  15. Did not get shittttt outa these explanations. In fact they just complicated the right answer in my head.
    WTF ! contextual, contextually, in context. Say wetin ?(in Mr. Ibu's voice). I wee jus unlearn instead of learn & relearn.

  16. What if there was no bed where the baby will be born?! What will the sentence be.... Put to car seat?

    Oyinbos confuse themselves......

    ReplyDelete
  17. the "corrected" made a mistake too. it's delivered of a baby not delivered a baby
