  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 159. The verb phrase today is to

  • chew out. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If a

  • person usually someone in authority somebody who's above others chews

  • someone else out, he or she seriously scolds another person. So it's probably a

  • lot of yelling, (yelling sounds) a lot something like that. All right. Let's continue. The origin of

  • this term is believed to derive from world war II. Okay. The idea is that when

  • a captain or a sergeant chews out someone below him, he uses a lot of jaw

  • motion implying chewing. Yes. Sometimes you've seen this you know, in movies where

  • they're training the soldiers and the drill sergeant is like yelling. That's kind of

  • where the idea of chewing someone out came from. But we use it as a regular

  • phrase meaning that somebody gets scolded very seriously. All right and

  • let's look at three examples we have here. Example number one. His teacher

  • chewed him out for making a disturbance in class. Okay. It could be. Number two . The

  • police captain chewed out one of his officers for falling asleep and driving

  • his patrol car into another vehicle. Yes. So he's probably costing the police

  • department a lot of money. And what's wrong with you ? Something like that. Okay,

  • and that the third one here. Jill's mother chewed her out for breaking her

  • curfew. Yeah. Remember if you have an hour that you are supposed to return home by.

  • Like if she's supposed to be home by ten. Maybe she came home at 12 or something.

  • Maybe the mother chewed her out. Like you're supposed to be home by ten.

  • You know that's your curfew. Something like that. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it. I

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