Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 121 The noun phrase today is 'skin
and bones'. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. A person or animal that is
skin and bones is extremely thin or emaciated. That's how we may say it. This
condition would usually only happen from a serious lack of nutrition. So, yeah
usually somebody whatever they allowed themselves to get into that position or
somehow they were starving to death that they they ended up in this position that
they you know, their body is almost like skin and bones. Okay.
Sometimes the phrase could also be heard as someone is nothing but skin and bones.
Okay. We say it that way too. Let's continue. This phrase dates back to
the early 1400s and alludes to someone being so skinny, you can see a
lot of their skeletal frame , especially their ribcage. So if they take off their
shirt you know, you see their, their ribs right through their , their skin, their
meat. They're probably hardly any meat at all. You see it's like a the arm is
like a bone. In this sense we say somebody is like just skin and bones.
Okay. Let's continue. All right. We have four examples the way we may hear it
used. Here's example number one. Before Karen Carpenter died, she was nothing but
skin and bones due to suffering from anorexia. So yeah
this is this is one way it could happen. If somebody has like anorexia or bulimia.
One of those diseases where they're actually kind of starving themselves to
death. You could end up looking like skin and bones. And sadly a lot of people in
that situation sometimes they'll look in the mirror and still think they are too
fat. That's the mental disease. That's connected to that. All right number two.
Seriously, you need to put on more meat or more flesh or more weight on your
body , you are starting to look like skin and bones. Well this is only if
somebody's really lost too much weight. Way too much weight. Or here number three.
After many people were released from concentration camps during World War two,
they were just skin and bone. Yeah. You see a lot of old photos from that time of
what they looked like when they you know first got out. All right and number
four here. Years ago, Benetton you know, the company, the clothes company Benetton
promoted an ad campaign. You know promoting models that were just skin and
bones. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it . I hope it was clear. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your
time. Bye-bye.
