1. What's the difference between "go over" and "observation"?
2. I'm reading a story book. I want to describe character's personality. Can you tell me about common expessions in detail?
Hi Young,

"Go over" is a verb. It means to study or peruse something. For example, "I should go over my science textbook one more time before the test tomorrow".

An observation is a noun. It is something you have seen or noticed. For example: "On her trip to the zoo, she wrote down her observations about the size, shape, and habits of the animals she saw".

I'm not sure I understand what you need. Are you looking for vocabulary that can be used to describe a person's character or personality? Here are some good websites with personality vocabulary and definitions:

I hope this helps you.
