  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Prepositional Phrase number 11. Okay. The prepositional phrase today is at each other's throats. Okay. Let's take a

  • look at the note here. If two people or groups are at each other's throats,

  • they are often arguing with each other in a very noticeable and angry way. So

  • you can ... they usually probably very loud. Okay Let's continue. The phrase alludes

  • to the idea of two people being so angry at each other, he or she wants to

  • strangle... you know the other one. Or strangle each other. It could also be

  • suggestive of the way some animals attack their prey , such as wolves who

  • will often go right for the neck. So we say they're at each other's throats.

  • All right and we have our three examples here to cover this. That couple is having

  • serious marital problems. You can often hear them at each other's throats. They

  • argue constantly. Okay. Good. Number two. Those two co-workers have a real

  • personality clash. Yeah. If we say personality clash, these are people where

  • their personalities are completely opposite or completely different. If they

  • spend time long enough in a room, in a room, they'll probably end up arguing

  • about something and we say those sort of people have a personality clash. They are

  • always at each other's throats. Good. And number three. Jenny and her neighbor are

  • always at each other's throats. Ever since they had an argument about the

  • property line. You know maybe if they don't have fences up you know, maybe one

  • of them thought ... the other person is putting things on their property. And

  • they're arguing about where exactly where the line should be. And

  • probably ever since that time, they argue about any trivial matter. That maybe

  • started it off. That's what caused the bad feelings and now they, they lose their

  • temperature ... temper easily. So they're often at each other's throats.

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

  • Bye-bye.
