How to use put in a sentence?

  1. Whoopi Goldberg:

    The minute you put yourself out there in someone’s underwear, you ca n’t be surprised.

  2. Van Kerkhove:

    What I think is really important is that we put this into context, there's been more than 24 million cases reported to date. And we need to look at something like this on a population level. And so it's very important that we document this -- and that, in countries that can do this, if sequencing can be done, that would be very, very helpful. But we need to not jump to any conclusions.

  3. Ada Hamosh:

    From a clinical perspective, once you see enough (patients) you can define the (symptom) spectrum, age of onset, other organs the disease affects, what their prognosis is, that's what parents ask for. They can say, 'I just met a 30-year-old with this condition.' It's not a cure, it's not a treatment, but it's the power of diagnosis and having a name to put on this condition.

  4. Jeb Bush:

    It's been 20 years now since NAFTA was put into effect, we need to be talking to our neighbors about what the next generation of NAFTA will look like.

  5. Amelia Edmundson:

    I thought it was hysterical, her husband put on a colors play list. And the first song in the first video was Ice-T's 'Colors.' And the second song ... was, I think, Cyndi Lauper, 'True Colors.' And he was laughing and she was laughing. So, they were having the best time.
