  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 129 The verb phrase today is

  • pop in. Okay we got three meanings of pop in today. So we'll give examples for all

  • of them. Let's look at the first one. The first meaning is if someone pops in a

  • place he or she enters that place for a short time ... Yeah we use this one a lot.

  • This is very, very common. You just want to pop into place

  • quickly, get something leave not spend too much time in there. Number two. To

  • make a short visit in the same sense you can also say to pop by. So you can pop

  • in or pop by both to mean a short visit. Pop always has the idea that you know

  • kind of suddenly. Or kind of quickly. Any time something pops. All right. The third

  • one here means to snap or push something into place. So that in that sense

  • something could pop into place. Okay, good. So let's look at the first example. Let's

  • just pop in 7-eleven to pick up a drink. I'm thirsty. Yeah this is very, very

  • common. You might pop it into a convenience store or you know pop into

  • someplace just for a short time. Get something and go out. We hear that all

  • the time. Extremely common. Number two while we were ... while we were in ... while we

  • are in that neighborhood. Sorry. We should pop in and visit your brother.

  • So while we are in that neighborhood, we should pop in and visit your brother.

  • It means we should just stop by. We should pop by. Visit him for a short time.

  • because we're there. We're close. We're in that neighborhood. Anyway, all right. Let's

  • look at the third one here. So I've kind of given two examples for the last

  • meaning because this is one that I think I want students even concentrate on

  • because of maybe some students might even know a couple of the others, but

  • maybe you don't know this one. Or, or are aware of this one. He dislocated his

  • shoulder and luckily the doctor was able to pop it in place again. Yeah, and

  • especially when we say to pop it in it might actually make a little bit of a sound.

  • That's why we say like to snap. Snap means like this is sound , so I think they

  • do say that. If somebody dislocates a shoulder or some bone and they pop it

  • you actually hear a pop when it goes back in. Or a little snapping sound. So and the

  • last one here. That child dropped his toy and it came apart. Luckily I was able to

  • pop the parts back into place. So maybe it was an easy toy to fix. Luckily you just

  • had to snap it all back in. So you just pop the parts back into place. Anyway I

  • hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
