Example sentences using "Offense"

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com No offense
None taken .
A: You normally hear that exchange when someone says something to another person, and then realizes that what they said might have offended them, so they say, "No offense" and hopefully the other person will say, "None taken." That is, the second person is saying that they were not offended.

Example: you tell your friend: "I just read an article about how people who are overweight have a hard time finding jobs."
And then, you suddenly realize that your friend is overweight (maybe you've known him for so long that you overlooked that he was overweight). So you quickly add, "No offense."
And your friend, knowing that you didn't mean to offend him, says, "None taken."

A: the phrase 'no offence' can be used at the beginning or the ending of a sentence. Here's an example with both:
Beginning - No offence, but your voice is annoying.
Ending - Your voice is annoying, no offence.
However, 'no offence' in the end is like an add on phrase like you forgot to mention it earlier in the sentence. That's why, it is preferable that the phrase comes in the begging.

Other questions about "Offense"

Q: please have no offense when I aks these question. soa natural?
A: "I hope no one would be offended when I ask these questions."
"I hope you won't be offended when I ask you these questions."
Q: "That even a little offense hurts and injures you means from head to toe there is nothing sound in you."

(It's a religious expression. People are easily hurt and distressed even when someone says a little annoying word. It means their hearts/souls are weak.

And it's also from the Bible:
From the sole of the foot even to the head There is nothing sound in it, Only bruises, welts and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, Nor softened with oil.) soa natural?
A: ​‎"That even a little offense hurts and injures you means from head to toe there is nothing sound in you."
This sounds either very poetic or a bit confusing (because poetry can be a bit confusing). The Bible sometimes uses older English grammar that is not used in typical, everyday speech. How about saying, “That you take offense at little things means that there is nothing good in you from head to toe.” Even still, starting a sentence with “That,” is often avoided because it sounds incomplete. “That” is often used in the middle of sentences. Also, “sound,” can mean many things, so you might want to say “good” instead so the listener can get what you are saying without thinking too much. You can say, “I can tell you are awful because you take offense at every little thing. There is nothing good in you from head to toe.”
Q: "I mean no offense but don't tell me you can do it because It's definitely over your control." soa natural?
A: No. Fine means it works. It's absolutely right.
Q: Por favor, mostra-me como pronunciar offense.

Q: No offense. Why there is so many " shit " used in phrases 😂😂, is it impolite or just casual ( or humourous )?
p.s. Actually I wonder if it's acceptable to use it properly👏 ( humour☺ but not bad manner😖 ) I'd appreciate it If you could offer some examples😝.
A: You're welcome. I don't think the question is especially controversial or objectionable: pretty much all questions are good, in my opinion. And it can be used unobjectionably in some situations. It's just that it's hard to get a good cultural feel for when. You could look through for some suggestions. But usually, alternatives are safer. Instead of "get your shit together," "get your act together" works. Instead of "full of shit" (which is not especially offensive, since it would be said in pretty informal contexts), "full of it" works as well. And so on. But a little exploration can give you a feel, maybe.
