  • Homage means a formal demonstration of respect for a distinguished person. Neither of yuour examples uses the word correctly. – Kate Bunting Jan 2 at 9:31
  • thx for commenting Eddie Kal! I use this site lately, and don't see how this site works. Next time, I'll look for similar questions at first, and then I'll post on what I wonder! – yeon._.chu Jan 4 at 4:49
  • Thx Kate Bunting! the word that you mention was the first. I'll write it down:)) have a good day! – yeon._.chu Jan 4 at 4:52

Here are my explanations:

Q1. What's the difference between "to" and "towards"?

The meaning of "towards" is "in the direction of" according to the dictionary. So it could be used like "He is running towards the car" which means "He is running in the direction of the car". Whereas "to" could be used like "He gave this to me", "to you" really is just like "for you" or "at you"/

Q1. When do you guys use "absolutely" as an answer?

The meaning of "absolutely" is "with no qualification, restriction, or limitation; totally." as mentioned in the dictionary, "absolutely" literally just means "totally", "completely" or "definitely". As mentioned in the Cambridge dictionary, there is an example sentence of: "Can you lend me $10 till tomorrow?" "Absolutely, it’s no problem.", so "absolutely" just is another way of saying "definitely", "totally" or "completely".
