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.
