Sorry does anyone know the difference between high and tall? I thought tall was for people but then heard tall building. Also have same problem with over and above and under and below. Thnks in advance!
'High' is usually used in describing something in relation to altitude or elevation.
It was a high mountain.
The plane was high in the sky.
Tall is used in relation to height compared to other similar objects. You have a tall building. You can also have a tall mountain, and, of course, there are tall people.
