So we actually have two meanings for boo boo today. A boo boo is a blunder or a slight mistake. Yeah. So if we say to boo boo maybe we're trying to be cute or we're trying to make the mistake not seem so serious . That could be a reason why we might use the word boo boo for a mistake. The second meaning of course is a boo boo can also refer to a minor injury.You know such as a cut or a slight injury. Usually used by or to children. So when you're talking to children, you know you say oh you've got a boo boo or you know or the children may come and say \"Mommy I got a boo-boo.' Something like that. So we often use boo boo in this way. All right. Let's continue. You may see boo boo written as two words or you may see it written as a single word with a hyphen in between. So you might find it both ways. There's some dictionaries that you know think both are acceptable. Let's go on. Some people think the word boo boo meaning a slight mistake may have derived from the word boob meaning a stupid person. So we're looking at the origin the meaning with you know a slight mistake they think could have come from boob a shorter form of boob. meaning you know that then and it turned into boo boo over time. Maybe it sounds logical. All right. Let's continue. The meaning of boo boo as a slight injury has several possible origins that different people debate about. Some think it comes from bubo. A swollen lymph no like a little bit of a blister or something. I guess it's possible. Maybe that could be the one of the ways it started. Others think it may have been borrowed from the French word ah bobo meaning a pain or injury. A third group thinks it may have come from the sound of weeping like right. ( crying sounds) sometimes you see that like in cartoons or something like that. Boohoo you know, so maybe it sounds like boo-boo. They don't sound kind of logical. Okay. Anyway, Let's look at some examples of the ways we hear these two meanings used. Okay. So the first one of course ... The first two actually cover like a mistake. So I need to erase this. I made a boo-boo. All right. Yeah. So maybe yeah let me just erase it fix it pretty easily. So again , we tend to use it more with a slight mistake or or somebody's trying to sound cute or something like that. All right. The second one. Be careful you don't want to make any boo-boos. Okay. That's another way you might hear it used. All right. And of course the third and the fourth one would be with the slight injury. Let me see your finger. Do you have a boo-boo ? So again this would be like talking to a small child. Oh are you hurt ? Let me see your finger. Do you have a boo-boo ? Show me your boo-boo. Something like that. And number four here. It says here. This you've probably heard a number of times before, especially a mother saying let me kiss your boo-boo, and make the pain go away. Does it really work ? I don't know, but maybe it helps a little bit. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
