Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 266 The idiom today is up a storm.
Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. This idiom is used as a modifier. So a
modifier always means to describe. something. We especially use it to
describe verbs. In this case so it's almost like an adverb phrase meaning to
do something with a lot of enthusiasm intensity or energy. So you kind of see
where it comes from. Where the idea comes from, the origin. You know , because a
storm has a lot of intensity or a lot of energy. So if you do something up a storm
you'll also do it with a lot of energy or enthusiasm or intensity. Okay. Let's
continue here. It is often used with verbs such as talk, gab, cook, sing, dance
etc. So of course you could talk up a storm. Gab up a storm. Cook up a storm.
Sing up a storm. Dance up a storm. We often use it with verbs like this. These
are some of the most common ones. All right. And let's just look at several
examples we have here. She hadn't been in contact with her good friend for years.
When she realized ... When she received that call, she talked up a storm for over three
hours. So she was on the phone for three hours talking. Yeah. She talked up a storm.
Okay. Number two here. My mother cooked up a storm
for our Thanksgiving Day meal. Yeah. Probably made you know countless amounts
of dishes. A lot of dishes. Yeah. Maybe in Asia during Chinese New Year
they will you know, a family will cook up a storm to get many, many dishes prepared.
All right. And number three here. She danced up a storm at a party on
Saturday night. She stayed on the dance floor for over four hours without taking
a break. So she really danced up a storm. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. i hope it is
clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
