This question already has an answer here:
- Shoot, Shoot At 2 answers
There are two sentences like this.
- The hunter shot at the bird.
- The hunter shot the bird.
Maybe I think that 'shot at' in number 1 sentence means that the hunter shot the bird but missed it. whereas hunter in number 2 sentence succeeded. What's the difference between 'shot' and 'shot at'in meaning? Please, tell me the difference.
