  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 165. The verb phrase today is

  • "carry away" and we actually got three meanings for carry away today. So let's

  • look at the first one. If someone gets carried , he or she becomes overly

  • enthusiastic and excited about something. So somebody could get carried away or

  • somebody could become carried away. So there are a couple of verbs we could use

  • with it. All right. So let's look at the first example here. Somebody might say

  • yeah, so like if we think that somebody gets carried away

  • we'll probably think that somebody's going a little too far or they're doing

  • a little too much of something usually because they are too excited about it or

  • too enthusiastic about it. So let's look at the first example. Don't get carried

  • away with too many decorations. This is just going to be a small party and get

  • together. So don't go crazy. Don't get carried away. Okay. Or the second one here.

  • Don't start talking about politics. John will get carried away and talk on and on

  • about it all night. So maybe John likes to talk about

  • politics. He's probably done this before and he has a tendency to get carried

  • away. He can't stop talking about it. So don't start. Don't start him off.

  • That's what they mean or otherwise he'll get carried away. Okay, The second meaning

  • of carried away here is to move someone or something physically from one place

  • to another. Very often, it's actually maybe by literally carrying them with

  • your hands or carrying it with your hands. So we say to carry something away. So

  • carry something from one place to another. All right. This is a simple one. So

  • we only have one example for this one. It took several people to carry him on a

  • stretcher off the field to an ambulance waiting outside. So this might be in a

  • sport. Maybe there was an injury and they had to carry the player away on a

  • stretcher. So this way and this way we can carry a person or a thing away. We

  • carry it from one place to another. Okay. And the third one here is

  • sometimes we use carry away actually means to steal something or

  • somebody stole something. So let's look at the number three. Number three we got,

  • we got two of them, two examples and both examples are a/b parts. So let's look at

  • the first one here. What happened to the watch I had on the table to sell. That's

  • what A says and B says I didn't sell it. Someone must have carried it away.

  • Meaning well somebody must have just took it. Somebody must have just stole it.

  • They just carried it away. Okay. And then the second one here.

  • I left my computer on the table and went to the bathroom. When I returned it was

  • gone. And of course B here says, you shouldn't have done that.

  • Like that was a stupid thing. Why'd you do that ? Someone probably just carried it

  • away. Somebody probably just took it . I's gone now. Not smart. You shouldn't have done

  • that. Okay. Well anyway this is what we mean. Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was

  • clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
