  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 23. The word origin today is

  • silver bullet. So let's take a look at the note here. If something is a silver

  • bullet, it seems like a simple and an immediate answer or solution to a

  • difficult or complicated problem. So that's what we say. You know, they need a

  • silver bullet. All right. So let's take a look here. Let's continue. The origin of

  • this term is derived from , so it comes from this. It is derived from the fact that in

  • many early werewolf movies or stories about or stories, the main way to

  • kill a werewolf was to shoot it with a silver bullet through the heart. There

  • were other references to the use of silver bullets from 19th century fiction

  • to kill witches, Devils, and other evil supernatural beings. So yeah. So if it was

  • that simple you could just shoot it with a bullet that would be quick and easy

  • way to get rid of a really bad problem. So that's what we sometimes say you know

  • they need a silver bullet or very often it might be used the way we give an

  • example here we might use it in the negative. We might say there is no silver

  • bullet. Like we can't just get rid of this problem very quick and easy by

  • just like shooting something through the heart. There is no silver

  • bullet to this problem. It is going to take time to work it out. Okay. Anyway, I

  • hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
