Made From Và Make Of

  -  
What is the basic difference between "made of" và "made from." Both expressions are used in vtvplus.vn. For instance, "This chair is made of wood," & "Cream is made from milk." Though the question is quite simple, I often confuse the two expressions. How vị we differentiate them & what is the rule or lô ghích behind their use?

I"ve heard a radio program on this topic.

Bạn đang xem: Made from và make of

Made of is used when the material the subject consists of doesn"t change during the process of making the subject. As in the example by Armen elsewhere on this page:

Chairs are made of wood.

Here, wood is still wood. It doesn"t transkhung inlớn something else.

On the other h&, made from is used when the material changed its nature. Again, another Armen example:

Paper is made from wood.

Now, wood disappeared — it was transformed inkhổng lồ paper.

Some more examples:

The house is made of bricks. Wine is made from grapes.

The best answer is that if you can"t reverse the thing that is made, you have khổng lồ use made from, but if you can reverse it, it"s better khổng lồ use made of.

For example, "the table is made of wood" as the wood is still seen at its nature, but "the cheese is made from milk" because cheese is solid và milk is liquid and you can"t reverse it.
