Hello everyone and welcome back to my channel. How are you? I hope you are well and are ready for a new Italian lesson. Today we will expand our vocabulary, because we will see together four adverbial phrases that are very used in everyday language, in informal and daily conversation. So please take a pen and paper to take notes! An adverbial phrase is a set of words that have the function of adverb in the sentence. So we will see together some adverbial phrases, they have the function of adverb in the sentence. And we will understand this better when we see synonyms. The first adverbial phrase we see together is "from top to bottom".
It means "comprehensively". You see, we can replace the adverbial phrase with a proper adverb, "completely". An example: Next weekend I will be cleaning the cellar from top to bottom. What does it mean? It means that I will clean the cellar very thoroughly. Not a speck of dust will remain in the cellar if I clean it from top to bottom. The second expression is "by thread and by sign". It means "in detail". For example: You have to explain to me in detail what happened. It means that I ask the person to tell me in detail, without forgetting anything. The third term is "at a guess".
It means "approximately", "approximately", "approximately". It is used to give indications that are not exact, but sufficient to understand and / or do that thing. For example: I don't remember exactly how much flour we need to use, but at a guess I would say 2 ounces. Another synonym is "More or less". The fourth and final phrase we see together today is "out of the blue". It means "suddenly", "suddenly". For example: Out of the blue he got up and left, without giving an explanation. Suddenly he got up and left, Indicates something happening without warning.
Out of the blue. I strongly advise you to write down these four expressions, because I am sure they will be there in conversations. Thank you for choosing to watch this video. We see you in the next. See you soon bye!
