  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective Phrase 33. The adjective phrase

  • today is drop dead. Okay. All right. Let's take a look at the note here. If we

  • describe someone or something as drop dead, we mean that he or she or even it

  • is so spectacularly attractive another person cannot help but to notice them.

  • Drop dead is also used before some nouns to mean like rudely dismissive too. Yeah.

  • Remember the ... we also sometimes can tell somebody to drop dead as kind of like an

  • insult as well. You know, it's a kind of an imperative command. Like it's a little

  • bit like go to hell. Drop dead. You know, you know, somebody you don't like. You

  • could say that to. It's not very nice. Of course it's offensive, but that's another

  • use and another meaning of drop dead as well. But here we're looking at the

  • adjective meaning and and even possibly the adverb meaning. So let's continue here.

  • Drop dead can be used both as an adjective and an adverb phrase. This

  • phrase of course implies that the beauty or attractiveness is so strong it could

  • nearly cause one to die. So , so beautiful you're almost like ( a gasp ) and you fall over and

  • you die. Have a heart attack or something. So that's what we mean. Okay. And let's

  • look we actually have four examples to cover all this here. Example number one.

  • That actor always shows up with a drop dead beauty. So a very beautiful girl . Maybe

  • he's always famous for showing up with very beautiful women. When he goes to

  • parties. Okay. Or number two. She wore a drop-dead dress.

  • You know, or dropped an evening gown or something like that. It's used a lot

  • about clothes, especially if they're very sexy.

  • They got everyone's attention. Okay and number three. She turned into a

  • beauty. Now she is drop-dead gorgeous. Yeah this is ... this is a very, very common

  • way we often hear that somebody may say somebody is drop-dead gorgeous. Again so

  • beautiful , it almost caused you to die. You know basically and this is one way

  • that it's used as an adverb too. Okay and number four. He is very ... he is a very

  • unpleasant person and he's notorious for his drop dead attitude. Well, this is the

  • one that we mean is rudely dismissive. You know that... that goes more back to the

  • imperative we talked about. Like if you tell somebody to drop dead. So if they have

  • a drop dead attitude, they don't like you. They don't care. They don't care

  • that they upset you or offend you. You know, they are like ... you know, their

  • attitude is like drop dead. Get out of here.

  • I don't care. So that's what I mean so it could also be used as that way. As an

  • adjective too. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. I hope it was informative.

  • Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
