  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is two-worded adverb one. The two worded adverb today is lickety-split. Okay.

  • Lickety -split basically means very quickly or a a great speed. So it happens

  • really, really fast. All right. Let's take a look at the note here. The origin is unclear. Some people think it comes from the fact that

  • ice cream or something else that. You are eating which is cold and melting will drip very quickly.

  • And you need to make quick licks. (hmmm, hmmm) Some other people think, it may have something to do

  • with the use of the lick of a whip. All right. The lick of a whip to make an animal move

  • quicker. So you have two ideas. One is from ice cream. The other one is about whipping

  • an animal to make it move quicker. The split idea may come from a split second or the fraction

  • of a second. . Which of course would be very quickly. So we say a split-second is less

  • than one second. You know, all right . Let's continue. Let's look at the first example here. I need

  • those reports to be done lickety-split. Very informally, we might say this. Or number two.

  • When it was his turn to buy a round of beers. He disappeared lickety-split. Very quickly

  • . Just suddenly it would be like what happened ? Where did he go ? What happened ? Anyway,

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