Hi,

Engage with is usually used in a mechanical sense where two or more pieces of a machine work one within the other as in gears.

Hi Alan,
Please help me
Can't we use "dinner" for the evening meal or night meal? Can't "tea" instead "dinner"?
and the original word of "diner" is ...?

Thank you

Hi,

'Dinner' or 'supper' are both used. 'Tea' is often considered to be in the afternoon. A diner is literally someone who dines. It is used often in restaurants where you would refer to the people eating there as diners.
