Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Miscellany "I'm clear about that" or "It's clear to me"?
#164881 01/12/07 02:45 PM The former, Sweetie.
It would be very rare for someone to say "I have made myself clear". Imagine that you are, for example, a teacher or a boss somewhere: no matter how clear YOU think your lesson or instructions have been, it is very likely that at least one person in the group did not understand completely. Therefore, we usually ask, "Have I made myself clear?", rather than announce the "fact" that we have.
