مرحبا أصدقاء خريج الشرق الأوسط، هذا مثال رقم 11 ضمن سلسلة "قل و لا تقل" و التي نهدف من خلالها لتصحيح بعض الأخطاء الشائعة في اللغة الانجليزية

Don't say: The man shot the bird by a gun
Say: The man shot the bird with a gun

Explanation: When we wish to show the means or the instrument with which the action is done, we use "with". "By" denotes the doer of the action: as, "The bird was shot by the man".

Note: But the following take "by", not "with": "by (electric) light," etc., "by steam," "by hand," "by post," "by telephone," "by one's watch," "by the day," "by the dozen," "by the yard".
