In my english class, when i said " bồn rửa mặt ( Vietnamesse language )" is a sink, then my english teacher told me " wrong" its must be basin.
She said that " sink is not a noun, its a verb"
Does anyone can told me what difference between them ?.
One more thing, for the "Vietnamese motorbike" you will call it scooter or motorbike.
A motorbike is more common in the UK for larger CC sized " motorcycles" for smaller CC sized bikes common in the far east The UK calls these "scooters" the bikes where you can sit on them with your feet on a platform the UK say "scooter(s)".
For the traditional bikes where you rest your foot on a peg The UK says "Motor Bike"
The people who ride the motorbikes or scooters are called "motorcyclists" or"motorbike riders"
A sink or a basin is a noun in English. It can be a place or vessel from where and and which point you wash either yourself or any other items, such as laundry or the dishes, pots and pans, saucepans etc.
Sink is probably a little more common in the UK and in The US they use the word basin I think.
A basin is also a round shaped vessel for storing water usually OR liquids for carrying water to a larger basin or sink.
A basin can also be a geographical term referring to a part of a river or where water collects.
A basin can also be a larger part of a canal system where there is a large area of water set aside from the canal where water is designed to be kept and where barges can turn around. Often located next to or adjacent to "locks"
A sink can also be a term used to describe a geographical feature where water sinks into the ground or sometimes where the ground "sinks"(verb). Into the earth. Or a sink can also be a (noun) a place where water is deigned to sink away in a drainage system. A sink away is a word for an area where water is designed to slowly sink away into the ground to drain of a waterlogged field or garden etc.
There are literally hundreds of different ways of using the words sink and basin and many different contexts and professions, sciences etc you can apply the words to.
"TO SINK" to go under water is the verb.
