Grammar Lesson: Bring vs. take

The word pair “bring/take” confuses many writers. Remember these guidelines,
and you will be sure to choose the right word: When you go, you take, and when you come, you bring. Here are some examples:

  • Wrong: “When we go to lunch, I will bring my copy of the report.”
  • Right: “When we go to lunch, I will take my copy of the report.”
  • Right: “When I come to theresta urant, I will bring my copy of the report.”
