Hi, I'm Sian from BBC Learning English and today we're going to look at the difference between raise and rise.

So, raise and rise both refer to something going up but there's a difference in how we use them.

Raise always needs a direct object. So, if you raise something, you move it up.
For example, I raise my eyebrows when I'm surprised.

And it doesn't have to be literal. So, the government plan to raise taxes.
Don't forget this is a regular verb so the past and past participle are both raised.

But, with rise, there's no direct object! So, if something rises it goes up or increases by itself.
The sun rises at 6 a.m. at the moment!

Careful! This is an irregular verb, so the past is 'rose' and the past participle is 'risen'.

Function/કેવી રીતે ઉપયોગ કરવું

raise

Raise નો અર્થ થાય છે કંઈક ઉપરની તરફ જવું. તેણે કાયમ 'direct object' ની જરૂર હોય છે. જો તમે કંઈક ઉપરની તરફ લઈ જાવ છો તો અર્થ થયો કે તમે એને 'raise' કરો છો. આ .. ક્રિયાપદ છે અને એટલા માટે ભૂતકાળ અને  બનશે  raised:

  • The people at the concert raised their hands and started to sing.
  • I will raise your suggestions at our next team meeting.

rise

Rise નો અર્થ પણ થાય છે કંઈક ઉપરની તરફ જવું. તફાવત માત્ર એટલો છે કે 'rise' સાથે કોઈ 'direct object' નથી હોતું. જો કંઈક rise થાય છે તો તે પોતાની રીતે વધે છે અથવા ઉપર જાય છે.

  • I like to watch the moon rise in the evenings.
  • When you get a promotion, your pay will usually rise.
