Communication : Apologizing

Apology in English:  الاعتذار في اللغة الانجليزية


Just because someone says that he is sorry, it does not mean that he is. A person might apologize to start an argument, to tell you that you are being unreasonable, to suggest that you should apologise, or because he really is sorry. On the other hand, a person might try to show that he is sorry, even though he can’t force himself to say it.

To be Sorry does not mean to apologize. To apologise is to admit that you are at fault. But sorry only expresses regret. That is, something has happened, which you would prefer had not happened, so you are sorry.
For example:
“I’m sorry to hear about your accident.”.
“I feel sorry for homeless people.”

In the examples above, the idea expressed is regret, but not an apology.

I’m afraid is often used to introduce bad news or an upsetting statement. Another way to do this is to use I am sorry to say.
For example:
I’m afraid you will miss your train”
“He won’t pass the exam, I’m sorry to say”
I’m sorry to say Joey’s aunt died yesterday.”
I’m afraid we’re lost.”


I apologize is a formal expression I’m sorry is often used in informal apologies.
With apologies, you admit to doing something to upset another person.

For example:
I am sorry for making a noise”.
I am sorry for ignoring you.”.
