What to Sound Like a Concrete Expert?

  • Many people interchange "cement" and "concrete" - cement is an ingredient of concrete.
  • We "place" concrete rather than say "pouring concrete".
  • You might hear someone say "smoothing it out" when it should be "finishing concrete".
  • The back of the concrete truck has "chutes" - not shoots or troughs.
  • The round thing that turns on the mixer is a drum or bowl.
  • The truck is called a ready-mix truck - or mixer truck - or even a concrete truck!
