Example sentences using "Change"

Q: Please show me example sentences with For a change
For a living.
A: Your first sentence “I burn a new incense stick for a change” is a little weird, and I don’t understand what you’re trying to say. Did you mean “Instead of burning an old incense stick again, I burnt a new incense stick instead.”?

For the second sentence, it’s more natural to say “Since we always eat Chinese food, why not we eat French food today for a change?”.

“I work as a delivery man for a living.” sounds more natural. For the second sentence, you can omit “for a living” as it makes the sentence sound unnatural. Instead, you can say “She worked as an barista before, so she makes good coffee.” (When you say she worked as a barista before, it is implied that she made coffee while working as a barista, so there’s no need to state that information).

Other example sentences:

“Let’s sleep early this weekend for a change! Maybe it will help us feel more refreshed the next morning!”

“Everyone has to work for a living.”

Q: "By sensing the change in electric current on the tag, the smartphone signals that it has detected the gas in question. " How to understand this sentence? What is the subject in the sentence?
A: I think the sentence is slightly broken, but I'll explain that part later.

"the smartphone" is the subject.

The core of the sentence is "the smartphone signals that it has detected the gas". In other words, the smartphone somehow detects the gas, and then does something as a result.

"the gas in question" just means some specific gas they are talking about.

"by sensing a change in electric current" is the way that the smartphone detects gas.

The "tag" is some device which generates a different level of current depending on whether the gas is present.

So, "by sensing a change in electric current" should describe "has detected".

The smartphone signals that it has detected (by sensing the change in current) the gas in question.

I think the sentence is broken because it seems to use "by sensing the change" to describe "signals". This makes no logical sense, so it is probably not what the writer actually meant.

I might say:

When the smartphone senses the change in electric current on the tag, it signals that it has detected the gas in question. (Here "it" refers to the smartphone, not the tag.)
Q: What does change as a person mean?
A: It means that you (or someone else) has changed their personality or morals or beliefs, etc. it is usually spoken that way in order to differentiate between an inside change, which would be 'change as a person', and an external change, which would be something like a new hairstyle.
Q: Could you teach me why "you" changes to "I" from line 6 to line 7?

A: In casual narrative speech, "you" is often used to identify with listener. By using "you" instead of just "I", the speaker is implying that they have a shared experience or understanding with the listener.

Whenever he says "I", he is referring to his own personal experiences. Whenever he says "you", he is trying to elicit some sort of understanding from the listener.

Extra note: Whenever he says "you know", he is trying to further reinforce that mutual sense of understanding. It is kind of like a strong ね in Japanese.
