Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 257. The idiom today is to collect dust.
Okay. Let's take a look at the note. Yeah. If something collects dust, it remains
untouched and unused for a long period of time. Yeah. This phrase is usually used
in humor. We're kind of making a joke and the fact that we haven't touched
something for a long time. We just say you know, it just sits there and collects
dust. You know because of course that's what things do. If you never touch them
or move them. All right. So let's continue here. We can also use it as a noun phrase
by saying something is a dust collector. Okay. All right. Let's continue.
Of course the idiom refers to the fact that if something is just left to sit on
a shelf and stored someplace without being touched or moved it actually does
collect collect dust over time. Sometimes quite a bit of dust or a lot of dust. So
again we're just making a joke out of this. So but here's some examples of
exactly the way we will use it. All right. Let's look at number one here.
I haven't rode that bicycle for a long time. It is just collecting dust in the
garage. Yeah that's exactly the way we say it. Or number two. Well this is the
idea of using it as a noun phrase saying a dust collector. My bicycle is a
dust collector. Yeah. You could use it in that sense too. Just from the same idea
as the first one. Or number three. I never pick up and read those old books, they
are just collecting dust on the shelf. Okay. Or on that shelf. Okay and the last
one here. I still have an old VCR machine that just sits in the attic and collects
dust. Yeah. This is exactly the way we use it and like I say we try to actually
usually be a little funny or a little humorous when we do.
Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it I was clear. Thank you for your time.
Bye-bye.
