Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 120. The noun phrase today is track
record. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If we talk about a person's,
company's, organization's, or even a product's track record , we are looking at
their overall or total accomplishments performance and even their failures.
Failures are definitely part of the track record too, etc. Let's continue. The
noun phrase seem to appear around the late 1940s and the term is believed to
come from horse-racing. Okay, in which records of a particular
horses ... well records or numbers were kept. So you know, how fast did he run ?
How many races he win ? How many times did he place second or third ? Or anything
like that. So maybe it could actually come from the horse's record as a track
record. Okay. Others, meaning some other people believe it could come from the
records kept on track and field events. It could be that too. Okay. All right. And
we have three examples here today. Example number one. I think he could be a
good possible replacement for our CEO of our company. Yeah. He has an excellent
track record of turning around the other companies he worked for. So you know, if
you worked for these other companies and he made their numbers go way up. So he
had already has a good track record. Okay. Let's continue. Number two here.
Nostradamus was a doctor and French astrologer who lived in 1500s but has a
track record of actually being able to predict a number of future events. You
know, getting them kind of shockingly close. Okay. And number three here. That
prosecutor has a track record of being able to convict many felons.
Okay. Good. This is just the way you may hear it used.
Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
