23 февраля, отмеченное повышенным уровнем тестостерона, неумолимо наступает, поэтому пора поговорить о фразовых глаголах, пришедших в повседневный английский из армейских гарнизонов или прямо с передовой. Squad, atten-shun!
Примечание: Глагол to boot up также используется в компьютерной сфере в значении «загружаться».
Пример: I had 15 minutes to boot up and dash of my condo for my first audition. (Raquel Welch)
Синоним: to hold in, to keep back, to restrain
Пример: Tory plans to cut 'further and faster' would wreck recovery and roll back Labour's many successes. (Alistair Darling)
Синоним: to make matchwood of smb, to defeat, to beat down
Пример: There has been nothing more impactful on my life and meaningful to me than the introduction of Christ. That, hands down, blows away every joke I've ever written. (Georgia Salpa)
I'm from Canada, and New Zealand feels like you took all the best bits of Canada and squished them onto a tiny island like Hawaii. I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the South Island. (Evangeline Lilly)
Синоним: to sleep in the open
Пример: I'd like to go on a hardcore safari in Africa, something off the beaten track with anti-poaching people and camping out in the savannah. (Dominic Monaghan)
Синоним: to re-deploy, to move
Пример: Every James Brown cut makes a party get crazy. He's the god of all music. I always play different wild remixes of his songs when I see that people start bugging out of the club. (Afrika Bambaataa)
Синоним: to become filled with energy or excitement, to go mad
Пример: There's something about that relationship between actor and audience. Whether on Broadway or in a fine local playhouse, there's no greater drug. Every time I get to do TV, film and a play in the same year, I get it on. (Roger Bart)
Синоним: to settle down, to bury oneself in; to weather away, to endure, to suffer, to bear; to take roots
Пример: Find your place on the planet. Dig in, and take responsibility from there. (Gary Snyder)
Синоним: to draft; to call, to appeal, to summon; to remind
Пример: I did not want to avoid service. I did realize reservists could be called up, and that it was something that I wanted to do. (Richard Blumenthal)
Синоним: to retreat, to drag, to drop behind, to fall behind
Пример: Plus, I've always felt that, if the worst came to the worst in my career, I could always fall back to doing voices on the radio. (Rob Brydon)
Синоним: to enlist
Пример: I wasn't a good student in high school. I wanted to go to college, but they weren't exactly beating down my door to offer me admission, and it's so expensive in the U.S. If you join up for a period, the army will pay your school and provide a stipend. (Kevin Powers)
Синоним: to rise against, to rebel, to oppose, to revolt
Пример: Remember that whatever may be said by a lady or her friends, it is not part of conduct of a gallant or generous man to take up arms against a woman. (Sam Houston)
Синоним: to complete, to accomplish, to crown with
Пример: To finish off this whole Olympics by finally getting the gold medal, it's the best feeling in the world. (Shawn Johnson)
Проверьте себя: Our goal is not to crush the opposing political upheaval at any price, but to make it realize that it is illegal to take up arms
