The Country Page – What country are you from?

Land

There are different ways of looking at land:

Earth

The earth is our home. Do you know the names of the other planets in English? (link to planet page)

In the garden we call “earth”:

garden soil (link to garden page)
soil
dirt
earth

Soil

We talk about “garden soil” in the garden. (link to garden page)

good soil
fertile soil
garden soil (as opposed to “fill” such as sand or gravel)

We talk about:

red soil
black soil

when we look at the earth and note its colours.

Another nuance is the idea of not dirtying or soiling your clothes.

“Do not soil your clothes”

means

“do not dirty your clothes”.

Don’t forget:

night soil (polite)
shit (vulgar)

“Night soil” is a euphemism for excrement.

The man who collected the shit came at night. (because of shame?)

Or perhaps the night was the time to defecate:

to shit (vulgar)
to defecate (medical or legal)
to take a crap (vulgar)

Real Estate

When we buy or sell land, we call it “real estate” or “property”. (link to real estate page)

I want to buy land.
means:
I want to buy real estate.

Land

That is good land.

means:

That is fertile land.

Look at these zonings for land:

Industrial Land is land which has been zoned for industrial use.
Residential Land is land which has been zoned for industrial use.
Commercial Land is land which has been zoned for commercial use.

“My land”

can also mean

“my country”

.

Japan is the land of the rising sun.

Country

Good country

means

good land

or

fertile land

or

land that is pleasing to the heart

or

a place that is pleasing to the heart.

A good country

means

a national entity which is good to live in

or

a national entity which has good policies.

Dirt

In the garden

“dirt”

is earth.

On your clothes

“dirt”

is

“filth”

or just

“dirt”

.

His shoes were covered in dirt.
His shoes were covered in filth.

Dust

Dust is fine particles of dirt like from a vacuum cleaner.

It is dusty in here.

It dustier outside in the street.

It is noisier too.
It is quiet here.
It is quiet but it is dusty.
