Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Prepositional Phrase number 11. Okay. The prepositional phrase today is at each other's throats. Okay. Let's take a
look at the note here. If two people or groups are at each other's throats,
they are often arguing with each other in a very noticeable and angry way. So
you can ... they usually probably very loud. Okay Let's continue. The phrase alludes
to the idea of two people being so angry at each other, he or she wants to
strangle... you know the other one. Or strangle each other. It could also be
suggestive of the way some animals attack their prey , such as wolves who
will often go right for the neck. So we say they're at each other's throats.
All right and we have our three examples here to cover this. That couple is having
serious marital problems. You can often hear them at each other's throats. They
argue constantly. Okay. Good. Number two. Those two co-workers have a real
personality clash. Yeah. If we say personality clash, these are people where
their personalities are completely opposite or completely different. If they
spend time long enough in a room, in a room, they'll probably end up arguing
about something and we say those sort of people have a personality clash. They are
always at each other's throats. Good. And number three. Jenny and her neighbor are
always at each other's throats. Ever since they had an argument about the
property line. You know maybe if they don't have fences up you know, maybe one
of them thought ... the other person is putting things on their property. And
they're arguing about where exactly where the line should be. And
probably ever since that time, they argue about any trivial matter. That maybe
started it off. That's what caused the bad feelings and now they, they lose their
temperature ... temper easily. So they're often at each other's throats.
Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it . I hope it is clear. Thank you for your time.
Bye-bye.
