How is "scoop up" different from "pick up"?Hi,I need your opinion here. In what context would you use the verb "scoop up"?My guess is that it means to lift or pick up something/someone quickly but I wonder if it"s commonly used. I read that in the UK, there are, or there were, stickers that say "Scoop it up!" directed at people who don"t piông chồng up their dog mess. So, do you have sầu any other examples?

Good question! Saying "Pick up your dog mess!" has the same general meaning as saying "Scoop up your dog mess!" in that it"s an order lớn clean up after the dog. However, the precise meaning is slightly different. To scoop up is khổng lồ take something up either with a scoop or in a scoop-like motion. To piông chồng up is to take something up with your hands or an instrument, in a similar motion to picking fruit.
