  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 164. The verb phrase today is "fire

  • up. " Okay. Let's look at the note here. Well, actually we have four meanings of

  • fire up today and we're going to give the meanings and the uses, the exact uses. Some

  • example sentences for each one of them. So here's the first one.

  • One of the first meanings would be to light something. You know to actually put

  • a fire to it. To make it start to burn. So we can use fire up that way. So let's

  • look at the first example here. It's a cold day. Let's fire up the fireplace.

  • Meaning let's you know, let's put a fire on. Let's ... let's sit in front of the

  • fireplace and be warm. Let's fire it up. Okay. Or number two. Sherlock Holmes

  • was known for firing up his pipe. Yeah you could use it with things like for

  • smoking. So he could fire up a cigarette. Fire up a pipe and so on. Okay. And

  • this is probably how we got the second meaning here. The second meaning is kind of a

  • slang term to mean to smoke marijuana . Okay. So let's look at this one. In his free

  • time, he likes to fire up and mellow out. Yeah. A lot of people say that's why they

  • smoke marijuana because it makes them feel mellow. You know, as opposed to cocaine

  • which makes them feel more excited. He is a real pothead. All right. Sometimes we ... This

  • isn't really a nice name. This is, this is what you might call someone that you

  • think is a regular marijuana smoker. You might say he's a pothead. Also because we

  • have a lot of slang terms for marijuana and pot is another one. So we... a person

  • who smokes a lot of pot could be a pothead or a marijuana smoker. Okay. Let's

  • look at number three here. To feel passionate or excited about something.

  • All right. We say here. Tina volunteered to work on his campaign. Yeah. Maybe she's

  • very excited about a particular politician. She is all fired up to get

  • him elected. Yeah. So maybe she's willing to volunteer and work for nothing. She just

  • wants to get this candidate elected. All right. And

  • we have a second example here. The manager tried to fire up his team by

  • giving them a pep talk. Yeah. We often see this in the movies. Maybe before the game

  • begins. The manager will call the players around. He gives them a little talk you

  • know, hopefully he will fill them up with a lot of enthusiasm or excitement. We call

  • that a pep talk. So you might try to fire them up with a pep talk. Okay, And the

  • last one here means to start up an engine or a machine. We could also use

  • fire up in that way. It's freezing out I'll go fire up the engine. So of course

  • this engine is the engine of a car. And if you've ever lived in you know, the

  • northern hemisphere or America or even Europe in the countries where it's very

  • very cold during the wintertime and it's a really cold morning you understand

  • what they may need to do this. You got to warm up the car. So you fire up the engine. So

  • let's read it again. It's freezing out I'll go fire up the

  • engine. So the car can warm up before we go out. Otherwise it's freezing as soon as

  • it takes a while for the car to feel like it's running smoothly too. Okay. Anyway,

  • I hope you got it. I hope it is clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
