  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Prepositional Phrase 14. The

  • prepositional phrase today is " at ones disposal. " Okay. Let's take a look at the

  • note here. If someone or something is at one's disposal that person or thing could

  • be used at any time or in any way that the user wishes to use it or the user

  • sees fit. Whatever , whatever way that is most suitable for him. Okay. Let's continue.

  • The origin's phrase comes from Latin. It derives from the Latin word "disponere"

  • which means to arrange or set someone or something in different places.

  • Therefore the user could arrange or use someone or something anyway they may

  • wish. All right. Let's continue. With the note here. Of course another meaning of dispose and

  • especially the noun form disposal refers to the act of throwing away. So that's

  • why sometimes this could be confusing with some people. They hear disposal you

  • know, as a noun. Most of the time we think of that you know, where we're getting rid

  • of something or throwing it away. But "at ones disposal" really doesn't have

  • anything to do with getting rid of. It's more about using what you need. What , what

  • is there available for you that you have this there waiting for you when you need

  • to use it. So yes. So especially the noun form refers to the act of throwing

  • something away. That is not the main idea of this phrase. So you should know that. All right.

  • Let's continue. Let's look at ... we have three examples here. Number one. She has

  • many assistants at her disposal to help her out. So it could be people you have, people

  • there. You know, to help you. And you could use them in almost any way you need

  • them, especially you know, in regard to work of course. Number two. Yes. If needed

  • the President and the government has a strong military at its

  • disposal. So in case there was ever any danger or situation you know, that's,

  • that's a possible choice. They have there. They don't have to do it. They probably

  • should avoid doing it. But it's at their disposal that it could be done. All right.

  • Number three. That organization has more than enough funds, meaning more than enough

  • money at its disposal. So for whatever it is that they want to do. If they wanted

  • to work on some new projects or whatever. it is. They have more than enough funds

  • or enough money at its disposal. That's there. That's available for them and they

  • could use as they believe is the best way for their company. Okay. Anyway, I hope

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