Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 161. The verb phrase today is to egg
on. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone eggs on another person
he or she encourages or urges another person to do a particular thing,
especially something that may be foolish or out of the ordinary. So we say
somebody eggs another person on. All right. Let's continue. The origin of this phrase
is not from or is not connected to real eggs like from a chicken. You know, so if
you hear egg on, it doesn't have anything to do with chicken eggs. The egg part of the
phrase 'egg on' is actually a variant. You know, a variation of a variant, of the
word edge. Okay. I guess it's kind of like the idea of you know, pushing somebody to
the edge too, to do something. The word "eddja' E-D-D-J-A from the Old Norse language
that the Vikings used is meant to encourage or push someone to do
something. So this is where it really comes from. All right. Great.
And now we just have three examples to cover this. Example number one. His
friends egged him on and he did it out of peer pressure. We see this in the
movies. Maybe you know, to smoke something or do something. Maybe or steal something.
Maybe something foolish or out of the ordinary. But his friends you know, kind of
encouraged him or pushed him from peer pressure.
So they egged him on. Okay. Let's look at number two here. She didn't want to sing
at karaoke, but everyone who was present egged her on. You know, kind of pushed her.
Come on do it. Do it. You know something like that. Or number three. He got drunk
because several of his college buddies egged him on to chug several beers. You
know , that's when they drink it down completely. Like bottoms up one (gulping noises).
Like that. And of course by doing this he ended up getting very drunk at
the party because his buddies egg him on. Come on
do it. You know, something like that. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear.
Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
