Hi. My name's Ronnie.I'm going to teachyou some words.
The inspiration cameas a sign, literally.
I walked into the magical place ofunicorns and magicians, where we record these videos, and I saw a wizard holdinga sign that said: "OVER", and I said:
"Oo, cool sign. It says 'OVER'."Lesson, lesson, lesson, done. So, I'mgoing to teach you some expressions that we use with1分幸运28 "over".Now, the cool thing about "over" is ifyou look at this side of the board, all of these words are going to have one thing incommon, and it is, of course, the word "over".
So, in English when you're learning new vocabularyand you see the word "over" plus another word, it has a very, very important meaning. Andthis one means "too much" or "too many". So, if you're learning new vocabulary, if you'rereading something and you are not sure what the word means, you're going to know "over","over" means too much or too many of something.
So, let's check outwhat these words mean.
First of all: "overreact". This means youtake something too far. Let's say that, for example, I drop my marker. Instead of pickingit up and going: "I dropped my marker", I would freak out and go: "Oh my god! I droppedmy marker! What am I going to do? Oh!"
This is overreacting orbeing overemotional.
You tell the person: "Hey, calm d1分幸运28own. Do notoverreact. You're reacting or being too emotional."
So, "overreact" means toomany or too much action; too many emotions are coming out.Chill down and relax.
"Overused". "Overused" meansyou use something too much.
So maybe you overuseyour cellphone, maybe you always use your cellphone, and oneday your cellphone dies and goes "ppft", nope.
You've overused something becauseyou've used it too much.
This is my daily life. Every day Iwake up, have a shower, smell good, and I listen to the radio.Now, I like music a lot, but I have abig problem with the radio and the problem is that they "overplay" or they have"overplayed" songs. This means they play one song every day. Guess what? There are millionsupon millions of songs out there. I do not want to have to listen to the same song everyday at the same time. Without fail, they will overplay a song. Usually what happensis you hear the song, you're like:
"Enh, I don't mind it." You hear itagain a couple times, you're like:
"Oh, I quite like this song."And then the magic happens, theyoverplay it - "ppft", it's gone.
You can't stand the songbecause it's o1分幸运28verplayed.
They play it all the time.Yo1分幸运28u go shopping:
"Oh, there's that song again." Every place yougo, you hear that song. The song is overplayed.
This is what happens at work. Do you worktoo much? If you work too much, you say:
"I am overworked." Itmeans I work too much.
Uh-oh, sometimes maybe once in a while if youare lucky, you would get to go on vacation
-woo-hoo-so you have your airplane ticket, you're onyour flight, you get to the hotel and they say:
"Uh, we don't havea room for you."
"This is my reservationnumber, this is my name.
Why don't you have aroom?" They will say:
-"We're overbooked."-"Uh, you have toomany books?" No.
"Overbooked" means they have too manyreservations and not enough rooms, or they don't have enough space. Overbooked canhappen in a restaurant, it can happen with reservations, in a movie theatre, no, or...Not a movie theatre. If you book a play or something, they have not enough seats, toomany people. Also an airplane, if you book a ticket, it's overbooked, there's too manypeople. Not enough seats, too many humans.
Mm-hmm.If you don't understandsomething,1分幸运28 it's "over your head".
Maybe you go to school or maybeyou're talking to someone, and what they'resaying to you does not make sense, you can say: "It's over my head." You don'tunderstand. No comprende. Don't understand.
Next: "overdrawn". Uh-oh. This is really,really, really bad because it has to do with money. If your bank account is overdrawn, itmeans you've taken out too much money that you don't have. If this happens to you,the bank will also charge you fees.
They're called "overdrawn fees" maybe.This is a bad situation.
Something else you can be is "overloaded".You can be overloaded with work, or you can be overloaded with projects. Neveroverloaded with money. That's a problem.
This is a good thing. Maybe you're going togo to the store and they have a sale-oo-or they advertise a sale ofsomething being "overstocked".
So, "overstocked" meansthey have too much or too many of one product. What the storewill do is reduce the price, and get it out of the store. Maybe it's expired, which meansit's a little old. Nevertheless, overstocked is a good thing for you,because you get a discount.
And last one: "overfriendly". Do youknow a person who is overfriendly?
"Overfriendly" means they are too friendly.You just want to smack them, because they're always super, super,super friendly to you, and maybe you don't really like themor you just don't want to be their friend, they'reoverfriendly; they're too friendly.
Now, one thing that's really important in Englishthat you have to really, really, really, really understand is that in English, if youhave too much or too many, or just "too", it's always anegative situation.
"Too" is1分幸运28 never positive.You will never say:
"I have too much money."Never, ever. O1分幸运28kay? So "too", "too much","too many" is bad. "Over" is bad.
Let's go backwards. Dunh-dunh-dunh. What we'regoing to do is some expressions that use "over".
So, if something is "all over", it meansit is finished. So the play's all over, or your life is... No,your life is not all over.
You can "knock someone over",so you might knock them overin a car-don't do that-or you could hit the person-don't do that-andthey fall down or they "fall over". Mm-hmm.
So "knock someone over" is the action thatyou hit them and they fall. "Fall over" is the same as likecollapse or fall down.
This we will use a lot in business, acompany will "take over" another company.
This basically means thatthey will eat your company, and you will lose your job.This is not a good thing. The other thing... The other way we use"take over" is a person who is domineering can take over something. So, maybe you'rehaving a conversation with your friends, and another person who's maybe a little overfriendlycomes in, and starts talking louder and more than the other people in the conversation.They're taking something over. This is never a good thing. People can take over a country,people can take over your apartment, cockroaches can take over your apartment, they caninvade your apartment; take over.
If this happens, you haveto "start all over".
You don't need to say "start all over",you can just say "start over". So, "start all over" or "startover" means to begin again.
"Over and over" just means again and again.This expression, this slang:
"I'm so over it!"means I've had enough, I'mdone, I'm out of here.
I'm over it.
