Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 65. The noun phrase today is
a done deal. Sometimes we use a French term to express this too. Somebody might
say a \"fait accomli \" basically meaning that something also is a done deal. From
French too. All right. So what does this mean ? Let's take a look at it. A done deal is
something that has already have been decided and cannot be changed. That's the
point that you're saying when it's a done deal. Usually somebody wants to
change something or adjust something and you say. It's, it's a done deal we can't
reverse it. It can't be changed. It's over. No point in still trying to compromise
about it or you know to bargain about it. It's already a done deal . Okay. So let's
take a look at a few examples here. Example number one. Even though, they have
received many complaints, they are not going to reverse their decision. They are
tied up in a contract and cannot reverse it. It's already a done deal. Okay. It's a
perfect way that we might use it. Or number two. Insiders say it's already a
done deal. The arguing in the media is just theater. It is only for show, so the
politicians can pretend they are fighting for their voter base. Yeah. So we
see this a lot of times where we see the politicians on both side are (blah, blah , blah )
but maybe behind the scenes a deal has already been worked out. It's already
over. Even though they're pretending like they're still arguing like something can
still be changed. In this case, we sometimes might hear this That an insider says
it's already a done deal. It's, it's already over. They've already
made a decision about it. Okay. And number three here. We have to make sure this is
a done deal before we leave. Yeah. This might be you
know, maybe there was a number of executives trying to work out this deal.
We cannot afford to let this agreement fall apart. So maybe some of the senior
ones they want to make sure this really goes through. Make sure it's completely
100% finished. You know, it's a done deal. So there's no chance that it may fall
apart or be reversed in any way. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's
clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
