Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 136. The Verb phrase today is to slip
out. Okay. Let's look at the note. Yeah. So we actually have three meanings today. So
and we got it like four examples and we'll be covering all the meanings in
these examples. So let's look at the first meaning. If someone slips out a
piece of information or a remark, he or she mentions it without realizing it. They
didn't mean to say it, but they just let it kind of fall out of their mouth. They
weren't supposed to say it or you know they usually they would do it by
accident. Number two. To escape or leave from a
place quietly or in secret. Maybe you just want to slip out so somebody
doesn't see leaving or so you don't have to tell somebody about something. Or
number three. To quickly or delicately remove some clothing. Maybe you could
also slip out of some clothes. All right. Good. So let's look at example
number one. Your daughter let this secret about the surprise party
slip out. Yeah. So you can often let a secret slip out. You say it accidentally
or you didn't mean to say it but somehow it came out of your mouth. You let it
slip out. Number two. I'll try to slip out of work a little early, so we can leave
sooner. So of course this follows the one where you're trying to escape or
leave from a place quietly or in secret. Yeah. If it's at work maybe you're
supposed to wait till five o'clock. If you slip it out a little early and then
maybe she's leaving about ten minutes early fifteen minutes early. It's
probably a place where you don't have a time card. So maybe she could get away
with doing this. All right. Well, let's look at the third one here. This party is boring.
Let's slip out. If Milly later asks what happened, I'll tell her we left or I left
early because I didn't feel well. Okay. So in this case, maybe you're at a friend's
party. It's very boring. Maybe you don't want to tell the friend that...
you know or make up some excuse at that time and face her that you're leaving
early. So you don't tell her. You just slip out. You just get out because then maybe
they'll say "oh no stay. Why are you going ? Stay. Why are you leaving so early.? You
know, they may have to go through that . They don't want to do that. They just want to
slip out and then later on, if the friend asks you know, Hey what happened to
you ? I didn't see you for a while. Oh, I didn't feel well. So we just
left early , but anyway this is what we mean by to slip out. So try to do it quietly or
in secret. Okay. Good and the last example we have here. Let me slip out of these
work clothes and put on something more comfortable.
Yeah. We often see this. We see this in the movies a lot , especially in romantic
scenes. Maybe the woman she wants to slip out of some clothes. Maybe she is going to
put on some sexy clothes. But really, it could be anything. You could just slip
out of your clothes and put on , just like we say here , something more
comfortable. Maybe you just want to put on some sweatpants and a T-shirt. But you
want to slip out. So you want to take off the old clothes and put on the new
clothes. Usually like they say kind of either
quickly or in a kind of a delicate way. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear.
Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
