  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 93. The verb phrase today is elbow

  • out someone or elbow someone out. All right. Let's take a look at the note here.

  • If you elbow out someone or something, out of their job or position, he or she

  • forces that person or at least tries to force that person to leave, so that

  • another person or thing can have it. Okay. So obviously this comes from elbow

  • itself. Just as a verb. So if we say elbow itself just as a verb. It means this. To push

  • out or hit someone or something with your elbow. You might know this. Sometimes

  • if you're trying to get through a crowd or a crowded area or maybe crowd a bus

  • or and somebody did this. It's not a very polite way. It's kind of an offensive way

  • to do it, but if somebody's trying to like just push people out of the way

  • with their elbows. This is what we mean by to elbow someone. So you could you

  • could like elbow your way through the crowd, like on a bus or a very crowded

  • area. You could elbow somebody. Hit someone.

  • Sometimes in self-defense, They teach you this or somebody attacks you from behind

  • you could go ( grunting sounds ) with one one of your arms you try to hit them. The person from

  • behind it with your elbow. If you could try to elbow someone. So let's

  • continue. Let's take a look at a couple of the examples here. The boss tried to

  • elbow out that executive, so that he could give that position to his son. All right.

  • Maybe he didn't want to directly fire him because maybe that didn't look good.

  • But maybe he made life difficult for him or put pressure on him or put demands on

  • him, you know, that were probably unfair. Maybe this is the way he tried to elbow

  • him out. Rather than directly fire him. You know, maybe he'd have to pay him

  • more compensation, especially if he didn't do anything wrong. But he wanted

  • maybe his son in that position. So maybe he would have done things to make him

  • unhappy in his job to make him try to leave. In this sense he's trying to elbow

  • him out. All right. All right. Let's look at number two. That company is trying to elbow him

  • because they want some younger blood. You know, younger people in that position.

  • Yeah. Sometimes you hear this. It depends on what the position is. Maybe they think

  • it's more suitable for younger people or if they get a younger person take over,

  • maybe they have more energy and maybe they can even pay them less. You know

  • because you've been around for a long time, your salary has gone up really high.

  • So maybe they might just try to elbow you out. Again make you uncomfortable.

  • Make you not really want to stay in that position. Pressure you to somehow go . They

  • might try to elbow you out. Elbow someone out. Anyway, I hope you got it. I

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