Dear Teachers,

1. Does "knock it off!" mean "shut up!"?

2. Grace: I like to help people.

Liza: Oh boy! you're so kind.

- These are two girls, but why does Liza say "boy" here?

3. Have you ever ridden on a motorcycle?

- I think "on" is redundant here, right?

4. She's the lead singer in the band.

- " lead singer" here means "only her can sing in the band"?

5. Don't be lonely tonight, we can make it alright.

- What does "we can make it alright" mean here?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

Stevenukd.

StevenukdDear Teachers,

1. Does "knock it off!" mean "shut up!"? It means "Stop it!"

2. Grace: I like to help people.

Liza: Oh boy! you're so kind.

- These are two girls, but why does Liza say "boy" here? "Oh boy!" is just a mild exclamation of delight.

3. Have you ever ridden on a motorcycle?

- I think "on" is redundant here, right? Yes, but it's a common usage.

4. She's the lead singer in the band.

- " lead singer" here means "only her can sing in the band"? Only SHE can sing (subject, not object) - but as Marius says, no, others can sing, but she's the singer in the front, the main singer.

5. Don't be lonely tonight, we can make it alright.

- What does "we can make it alright" mean here? We can make it all right - is it a lyric from a song? Probably means "let's have sex."

Thanks very much to Teachers,

Stevenukd.
