Nifty Nuggets: Bring Versus Take

Someone asked me about the correct usage of the words bring and take. Specifically, do you take the system down or do bring the system down? According to Grammar Girl, the answer depends on your point of reference for the action.

Take means to leave with something and bring means to arrive with something.

The words bring and take can get tricky when referring to a system because you aren’t physically leaving with it or arriving with it. For Episys, we use the words bring and take as follows:

· Take the system down.

· Bring the system up.

· Take Episys off host before continuing the process.

· Bring Episys on host before continuing the process.
