Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adverb Phrase 20. The adverb phrase today is
accidentally on purpose. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone does
something accidentally on purpose, he or she did it deliberately. So they did it
on purpose but pretended or acted like it was by mistake. So actually you don't
really need to explain the origin of this because it means just what it says
accidentally on purpose. Yeah. It's usually used in a humorous way. It's
usually used kind of as a joke but everybody kind of gets it because you
know in life sometimes some people do this. All right. So let's look at several
examples here. Example number one . That waitress accidentally on purpose spilled
some coffee on that rude customer;s lap. Yeah. So maybe he said something rude to
her and she's pretending. Oh , oh I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't
mean to do that and then you know , maybe she gets her revenge a little bit. Or
number two here. She accidentally on purpose dropped her book in front of him
in hopes that he would pick it up for her and they could meet. You know, this is
almost like a way maybe kind of like a flirting or a way to get maybe some
guy's attention. So she accidentally on purpose dropped the book. Hopefully he
picked it up and then they say 'oh thank you.' Thank you very much. Oh who are you ?
Blah, blah, blah and that's what could happen. All right. Let's look at number
three here. I hated that ugly statue my husband bought and put in the center of
our living room. Yes. So you , a lot of wives are very particular about you know, the
house and the living room and stuff like that. She really didn't like this statue.
So I accidentally on purpose knocked it over and
broke it. I told my husband I was so sorry. Oh I'm sorry. I accidentally hit it
and broke it. Oh I guess we have to throw it away now. Or something like that.
Anyway, like I said, it tends to be used in humor. I hope you got it. I hope it was
clear.. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
