  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adverb Phrase 25 . The adverb phrase today

  • is born yesterday. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here.

  • If someone says that another person must think or acts like he or she was born

  • yesterday, he or she is saying that the other person that other person who's

  • saying it , must think he or she is gullible, easy to fool or easy to trick..

  • Gullible is also a person that that believes almost anything. Easy to fool,

  • naïve, not smart, etc. Okay. Good. Let's continue. The idea of this phrase alludes

  • to a newborn that is only one day old and is of course naïve. If the baby's

  • just born of course they know almost nothing. They don't hardly know anything

  • at all. They just know that they feel discomfort and they usually can just cry.

  • And that's about all they do know. They're, they're an open book. That's the way we

  • sometimes say it. So and could not possibly be aware if someone was trying

  • to trick or deceive them. So that's the way we use it you they say like they

  • must think I am like that. Like that baby, that is only one day old. Okay. Let's

  • continue. We have got four examples to cover all this. So this is just the way you may

  • hear it used. Number one. I cannot believe he expects me to accept that excuse. He

  • must think I was born yesterday, yesterday. So that excuse is just too

  • ridiculous or too stupid. He must think I was born yesterday.

  • That I would accept such a stupid excuse. Something like that. Number two. Of course,

  • I know that. Don't treat me like an idiot. Yeah. You often hear people say

  • something like this. I wasn't born yesterday. So if somebody was treating

  • someone like they were a fool or an idiot they might say this in this way.

  • ?All right. Number three here. Do they really expect

  • us to think those reasons are acceptable? They act like we were born yesterday.

  • That we can't figure this out. That we can't see through this. Okay, and the last

  • one. Number four here. Don't talk down to me. You know, like you were either

  • somebody younger or older or you know not as smart. Like I am a child. Don't

  • treat me like I was born yesterday. Okay. So this is exactly how you hear it used.

  • Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear.Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
