Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 155. The verb phrase today is to sweat
out or sometimes we might even say to sweat it out. All right. Let's take a
look. We actually have two meanings here. The first one if someone sweats something
out he or she gets rid of something from one's body by sweating. So this is the
more literal meaning. You sweat something out. You sweat something out of your body.
All right, and we have two examples to cover this meaning. Here's the first one she
covered herself with a lot of heavy warm blankets to try to sweat out her cold.
Okay . So she's literally sweating the sweat out of her body. Or number two. She
likes to take long saunas to sweat out the toxins. Remember the
toxins means like poisons from her body. Okay. So this is the more literal meaning
Again you are literally sweating in this one. All right. Here's the second one.
To endure something unpleasant or await something in a suspenseful or nervous manner.
You're nervous about it. A lot of times when we are nervous we do start to
sweat. So that's probably why it also picked up this meaning. All right. And we
have our three examples to cover all of these. Here's the first one here. She
wasn't sure if she did well enough on her college entrance examination. She was
really sweating it out until she got the results. So this kind of covers
several of them here. It's a little unpleasant. It is definitely suspenseful
because you have to keep waiting and you might be nervous so it kind of covers
all three in one here. Let's look at the second one. I got stuck in that elevator
for two hours due to that power outage. So the electricity went off. The elevator
if you're unfortunate to be the one in the elevator when it stops you get stuck
in there. I just had to sweat it out until the power came back
on and I was finally let out of the elevator. Okay. Good. So this one is
definitely unpleasant also very nervous. in a nervous manner. A lot of people would
panic if this happened to them. All right number three here. Try not to think about
if you are going to be one of the downsized employees. Yeah. Maybe the
company already announced they're going to do it but they haven't told who's
getting downsized and who is not yet. Or not you're just going to have to sweat it
out until the downsizing is over. Or, or unless they know. They let you know
you've been one of the downsize people. Unfortunately we hope that doesn't happen to you.
Okay. Good. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.
