  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Prepositional Phrase nine. The prepositional

  • phrase today is "on fire. " Okay. Let's take a look at the note. We actually got four

  • meanings of on fire here used this way and give examples for all of them. So

  • again, let's look at the first one. Being burned by a fire or aflame. So that's

  • the first use. If we say something is on fire you could literally meaning that

  • you is on fire. That it is actually burning. So here's the first example. It

  • was on fire. It was burning for a while. I'm not sure how long it started , but it

  • took some time to put it out. Meaning to put out the fire. Wherever this was.

  • Maybe a car or can or who knows whatever it was that was on fire. All right. Let's look at

  • number two. Achieving exceptional results recently. So recently you were on fire.

  • You were performing much better than you usually do. So let's look at the first

  • one. That team is on fire. They have a 12-game winning streak. So

  • they won 12 games in a row. Wow ! They're hot. They're on fire. Okay. Well let's

  • look at number three here. Having an intense burning feeling or you know

  • sensation. I've got a serious case of wind burn on my feet from wearing wet

  • sneakers in cold weather. It felt like my feet were on fire. Yeah. So maybe if you

  • got the wind burn and especially on your feet you're trying to walk and it's ouch, ouch, ouch.

  • Something like that. Because they felt like they were on fire. Okay. Good

  • Very attractive or sexy. Look at that sexy dress she showed up in. All eyes

  • are on her. She is on fire. We could mean it that way too.

  • All right. Let's look at the last note here. The phrase on fire probably came

  • from the use of hot . Remember "hot "as a word has many,

  • many meanings. But the meanings here would probably mean ... well hot often means.

  • popular. So that's how it one way that we could use it or doing extremely well.

  • So yeah again like just like you with the 12-game winning streak, we could say

  • somebody's on a hot streak. They're performing better. So the team

  • could be on a hot streak winning many games in a row or maybe a hitter have

  • got a you know , a hit streak maybe hit so many ... he got a base hit in so many games

  • in a row. He is very hot. So if you want to emphasize that more. And make it sound

  • like even you know, on fire. He's so hot he's on fire. So that's kind of where the

  • idea came from. So thus on fire was used to emphasize this idea. Okay

  • Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
