英会話ブログ その575     American Slang Expressions (2)

2015/01/12

"Beat" is a word often used in 2 slang expressions with different meanings.

For example :  " I worked hard today,  I'm really beat. "  In this case, "beat" means, "exhausted".

Another situation might be this, " The hotel I stayed in was really beat. "   Well, this "beat"  has a very negative meaning, like: "terrible", or "awful", or "horrible".

Here's one expression which may be a little dated but still in use today.

" Calm down, don't get so bent out of shape. "  This "bent out of shape" is slang for "becoming very upset, or angry about something."

Look forward to more "slang" blogs in the furure.                                     (V.C)
