carry

take
1. 'carry' and 'take'

Carry and take are usually used to say that someone moves a person or thing from one place to another. When you use carry, you are showing that the person or thing is quite heavy.

He picked up his suitcase and carried it into the bedroom.
My father carried us on his shoulders.
She gave me some books to take home.
2. transport

You can also say that a ship, train, or lorry is carrying goods of a particular kind. Similarly you can say that a plane, ship, train, or bus is carrying passengers.

We passed tankers carrying crude oil.
The aircraft was carrying 145 passengers and crew.

Take can be used in a similar way, but only if you say where someone or something is being taken to. You can say, for example, 'The ship was taking crude oil to Rotterdam', but you can't just say 'The ship was taking crude oil'.

This is the first of several aircraft to take British aid to the area.

You can say that a smaller vehicle such as a car takes you somewhere.

The taxi took him back to the station.

Be Careful!
Don't say that a small vehicle 'carries' you somewhere.
