comment What is the logical difference between “to seek” and “to look for”?
@David, if verbs are synonyms, why one can't seek for something?

I didn't know that, but wouldn't use it that way either due to "gut feeling". I am still more interested in the difference between two verbs though.

comment “Don't let's fight”
@Ron, sorry for probably repeating what you've wrote clearly, but you are really saying that most Americans will consider "Mom! Let's go to the movies!" as not a proposal for mom to go to the movies, but meaningless in this case "Mom!" and then a kind of talking-to-myself Oh God, let us go to the movies!?

I didn't know that "for" can take the form of "opposite to". Thanks.

comment Logical meaning of the word “understand”
@ArlenBeiler - my attempt to try to explain such an ancient and powerful language as Japanese may be very childish, but in their language "Understand" and "Divide" may be synonymous due to thinking that to "know something" you need "to get to the insides of it" therefore dividing it. Division of solid would reveal it's internal structure and let you "know it", stand within it.

comment Logical meaning of the word “understand”
Thank you. The reason I asked is because in Russian we have pretty much similar "misconception" and now after reading the answers I understand that the same way we have "under" that means "stand behind". This is kind of fantastic.
