Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 187. The title of today's lesson
is use 'sports' in front of a noun. Okay let's look at the first note. When the word sport
is in front of a noun, it usually becomes a noun phrase. So the two words kind of
combine to be like one noun phrase. So we use sports not sport in those sort of
situations. Let's look at the first example with the X. This of course would
be wrong. If we say Jerry owns a sport car. No. With the check this is correct
We say Jerry owns a sports car . Yeah definitely this will come up in writing.
But it even if it's spoken you know, it sounds a little awkward or a little off too. All
right . Let's take a look at the second example. Bob likes to go to a sports, a
sport bar of course that's wrong with sport bar on the weekend. Of course with
the check. This is correct Bob likes to go to a sports bar on the weekends. You
know so every weekend he likes to go out to it so we have a lot of these
combinations of a sports something. And I just gave you some other very common
examples here. So we might not only do we have a you know sports car or sports bar
it's very common people might have a sports jacket, sports announcer, you know
the people whose are reporting that a baseball game or a basketball game.
Sports drink, yeah very common. You know that usually
is a little bit of an energy drink or something after you do exercise. Sports
coat, sports bra . Yeah , a lot of women have sports bras. Sports fan, very very common, sports arena etc. So
again just be careful. Realize when sports is combined together with another
noun it becomes a noun phrase. I must always be sports not sport. Okay, I hope
it's clear. I hope you got it . Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
