Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 165. The verb phrase today is
"carry away" and we actually got three meanings for carry away today. So let's
look at the first one. If someone gets carried , he or she becomes overly
enthusiastic and excited about something. So somebody could get carried away or
somebody could become carried away. So there are a couple of verbs we could use
with it. All right. So let's look at the first example here. Somebody might say
yeah, so like if we think that somebody gets carried away
we'll probably think that somebody's going a little too far or they're doing
a little too much of something usually because they are too excited about it or
too enthusiastic about it. So let's look at the first example. Don't get carried
away with too many decorations. This is just going to be a small party and get
together. So don't go crazy. Don't get carried away. Okay. Or the second one here.
Don't start talking about politics. John will get carried away and talk on and on
about it all night. So maybe John likes to talk about
politics. He's probably done this before and he has a tendency to get carried
away. He can't stop talking about it. So don't start. Don't start him off.
That's what they mean or otherwise he'll get carried away. Okay, The second meaning
of carried away here is to move someone or something physically from one place
to another. Very often, it's actually maybe by literally carrying them with
your hands or carrying it with your hands. So we say to carry something away. So
carry something from one place to another. All right. This is a simple one. So
we only have one example for this one. It took several people to carry him on a
stretcher off the field to an ambulance waiting outside. So this might be in a
sport. Maybe there was an injury and they had to carry the player away on a
stretcher. So this way and this way we can carry a person or a thing away. We
carry it from one place to another. Okay. And the third one here is
sometimes we use carry away actually means to steal something or
somebody stole something. So let's look at the number three. Number three we got,
we got two of them, two examples and both examples are a/b parts. So let's look at
the first one here. What happened to the watch I had on the table to sell. That's
what A says and B says I didn't sell it. Someone must have carried it away.
Meaning well somebody must have just took it. Somebody must have just stole it.
They just carried it away. Okay. And then the second one here.
I left my computer on the table and went to the bathroom. When I returned it was
gone. And of course B here says, you shouldn't have done that.
Like that was a stupid thing. Why'd you do that ? Someone probably just carried it
away. Somebody probably just took it . I's gone now. Not smart. You shouldn't have done
that. Okay. Well anyway this is what we mean. Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was
clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
