Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 130. The verb phrase today is turn
to. All right. This is one of those verb phrases that has a lot of meanings and a
lot of uses. So today we're going to cover six meanings and give six examples.
So one example for each meaning because it has you know six of them today.
All right. So let's look at the first meaning of turn to. So one meaning we
could use is to rely on or go to someone for aid or for help. So if you turn
to someone, you could turn to somebody for aid. You could turn to
somebody for help and here's our first example.
Many universities turn to their alumni you know, these are students that
graduated before. Turn to their alumni for donations. So they are turned to them
for help. They're turning to them for money, for donations. So that's the first
example. All right number two. This is the second definition to physically move
one's body or head. Yes. So you could turn your head to somebody or you could turn
your whole body to somebody. This is what we mean. So here's the second example. He
turned to her and said I love you. So he may have turned his whole body.
But he definitely probably at least turned his head to her to look directly
at her. So in this case we mean it. So you need to turn your head or your whole
body and face to someone or something. You could turn to them. All right. Number
three. To direct one's attention toward. So turn to can also mean direct one's
attention toward. Number three here. Here's the example I like to turn to
that website to get my news. So you're giving your attention to that website.
Maybe you like to get your news from them. Okay, good.
Number four here. The example to open a book to a certain page. We often
hear someone say you know turn to a certain page. Turn to this page. So let's
look at example number four now. Turn to page 45 and we will start the class. So a
teacher may say that to the class. Okay. Or maybe you hear that you know, and in
in a church or temple. You know, the priest or the rabbi or somebody may say...
tell you, if you have the hymn book in front of you to turn to a certain page.
All right. Number five. To redirect one's loyalty. So kind of like you're changing
your loyalty. Number five here. I decided to turn to a
more conservative party you know, this could be a political party. Of course , you
go either way you could decide to turn to a more liberal party or the
Libertarian Party. It really doesn't matter, but you're changing your loyalty so
you're turning to another party, to another group.
Okay. And number six here. To convert or change one's religion. You could use turn
to. So on the show\" Sex in the City\" the character, Charlotte. Yes. If you
remember that that HBO series. It's been off the air for a while now, but still it
was a very popular show. So she turned to Judaism for her husband. Yeah. And at the
end, she decided to marry another guy who was a Jewish lawyer. And I think he
promised his mother before he died that you know he would only marry another
girl if he was Jewish. And she decided to you know, change for him. To change her
religion. So she turned to Judaism for him. To marry him. Okay. Anyway, I hope you
got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.
Bye-bye.
