LEARNING ENGLISH: When body parts are used as verbs
English language is indeed very fascinating. Found this very interesting hence sharing😊
*WHEN BODY PARTS ARE USED AS VERBS*
Many parts of the body can be used as verbs in either a physical or a metaphorical sense.
You can *head* a company, but if things go wrong you’ll have to *shoulder* the blame, or *face* your investors.
A good leader will *back* his employees, but if you don’t *toe* the line the management can *skin* you.
Did you *muscle* your way into that job?
You might *eye* someone suspiciously, or wait for the police to *finger* a suspect.
But if you need to get out of town, you can *thumb* a ride or you can ride with me if you can *stomach* the thought.
Use strong *arm* tactic if you want to *elbow* out someone.
I don’t always sing along with the radio, but I sometimes do *mouth* the words.
That’s Amazing English!
