Question by gardengate: Is it “on sale” or do you want to keep it?
When you read the words “ON SALE” in a shop or on the Internet is its meaning always clear to everybody?? As the meaning may be 1) you can buy it, it’s here to be sold 2) you can buy it at a special discount, the price is reduced now, how can one guess which meaning is the right one??? I think the phrase is rather confusing if you don’t add some other words to make it clearer! Am I stupid or am I right??
I do think SODALICIOUS is right BUT people often write “ON sale” instead of FOR SALE , when they actually simply mean “full price, with no discount at all”, hence you must agree with me that a total confusion comes out!!!!
Answer by SodaLicious
I think definition # 1 could read as, “FOR SALE”. # 2 would be the understood meaning of “ON SALE”. … any clearer, now?
