  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 160. The verb phrase today is to

  • knock out. We actually have 8 pretty common uses for knock out today and we

  • give examples for all of them. So let's look at the first one. The first meaning

  • is to exhaust or to tire out and when we use this one usually we will use a noun

  • or pronoun. You know, with it. So here's the first example that we're using. That

  • long hike really knocked the kids out. So it really tired them out. So maybe when

  • they came home that night, they slept very easily. Because this long hike

  • knocked them out. Or we have a second example for this one. One side effect of

  • this medicine is that it really knocks me out. If you have ever taken any medicine

  • and you get really tired as a side effect from the medicine, you could say

  • the medicine knocked you out. It's one side effect of the medicine. All right.

  • Here's the second one. To tell someone to go ahead or feel free to do something.
