  • Hello and welcome everybody I am Niharika and today we are going to look at different

  • ways to eat. Well eating is the most important thing that we do, every single day. So in

  • English we have a list of vocabulary that would help you to talk about the different

  • ways of eating. Pretty interesting right? Now this would help you to talk fluently the

  • next time you are extremely hungry or when you are talking about food. So let's get started.

  • Well the first one is, to binge. Now to binge means when you indulge in food and you just

  • eat uncontrollably. Well to be honest it's an eating disorder. Now the correct meaning

  • of binge is, it's an eating disorder wherein you know you just constantly eat, eat, eat

  • and in large amounts. But then while we speak in a very casual way, you might have noticed

  • people end up saying, "Oh my God I am starving and I'm going to binge on these snacks here."

  • So when you speak casually you can end up using the word binge. However, the real meaning

  • of it is that it is an eating disorder, wherein you eat uncontrollably okay.

  • Then the second one that we have is masticate. Well masticate uhh is another word for chewing.

  • Well yes we chew our food, right with the help of our nice and white bright teeth. Well

  • masticate is when you chew your food. When you crush and grind it with the help of your

  • teeth. So that is, masticating. And if you have to use this is in a sentence, you can

  • say, "well the camel masticates the food with the help of its front teeth." So basically

  • he chews his food with the help of his front teeth. Okay.

  • Then the next one is, to guzzle. Now many people get a little confused when it comes

  • to using the word, guzzle and when it comes to using the word, gobble. But here I am,

  • I'm going to help you with the right meaning and the right way to use it. Now to guzzle,

  • it means to drink. Okay so when you are drinking very hastily in a very rapid or in a very

  • eager way, to drink rapidly. Okay it means that you're guzzling down your drink. Okay

  • so when you're, you know probably you are drinking it in a very eager way because you

  • love to drink. Like boys, they guzzle down their beer because they love their beer so

  • they drink in a very rapid way. Okay so that's what the meaning is, when you guzzle down

  • a drink. But if you see another word here, which is to gobble or to gulp, it means when

  • you eat your food without chewing it. So many a times, when you are hungry and you end up

  • picking up just large amount of food and you just put it, gulp it down in your mouth. You

  • just directly swallow it. So you really don't chew it properly but you end up swallowing

  • it, you end up gulping it down or gobbling it down. Okay so usually these verbs are used

  • with the word down. So like I gobbled down my breakfast. I gulped down my breakfast okay.

  • So this is the way you would use this. So the correct meaning of this word is, when

  • you are just swallowing your food in a very hurried manner without chewing it. Okay so

  • hope you got the difference between the words guzzling down and gobbling down.

  • Okay the next one is bolt. Now bolt is used when you eat again in a very hasty manner.

  • However, you only bolt down food when you are in a hurry. So you eat quickly, the reason

  • because, you are getting late, you are in a hurry. Probably you got up late so you just

  • bolting down your breakfast. Okay because you are late, right? So it means, to eat quickly

  • because you are in a hurry. Okay the next one is, nibble. Well children

  • do you ever see them eating? Well all they do is that they nibble at their food. And

  • what does it mean? Well when they take small bites okay and they eat very small quantity.

  • So that is nibbling. Especially when you are eating a corn, a sweet corn. You generally

  • don't take big bites of it, right? You just take small bites and you basically nibble

  • at it. Very small quantity and small bites, right? So it's small amount of food, small

  • amount of food with small, taking small bites. Okay so hope you got this right.

  • The next one is, peck at food. Now again peck at food means, when you eat reluctantly. Something

  • that you don't like. Well you go to someone's house and they have served you and of course

  • they have served you with all their love. But you really don't like it. You don't like

  • the taste of it and you don't wish to eat it. So what you do is, you eat it because

  • it's served to you but you eat in a very reluctant manner and so you end up taking very small

  • bites. You kind of play with your food. Okay so like, the other day I went to my friend's

  • house and she served me some fish and trust me it was not nice. I didn't like the flavour,

  • it wasn't cooked properly. But I ate it reluctantly. So basically what I did is, I pecked at the

  • fish. So I was eating reluctantly and taking small bites of it. Okay so next time you don't

  • like something, use this. Okay then the next one, is gnaw. Now gnaw,

  • well here the g is silent, you just end up pronouncing it as gnaw and what it means is,

  • when you keep on chewing on something. Something which is really, especially meat, when it's

  • not cooked properly, when it's a little raw. You keep chewing on it because it's too hard,

  • it's too tough right. So rather than you saying that, oh I have to chew this repeatedly, you

  • can say, I am done gnawing on this meat. So here you are chewing it constantly, repeatedly.

  • Okay so when you chew your food repeatedly, that action is called as gnawing. Like the

  • dogs, when you end up giving them a bone, they keep on gnawing at it. The reason because

  • it's hard, right. It's really tough. So they keep chewing, biting repeatedly. So that's

  • the word for you. And then the next one is, to munch. Well when

  • you are watching a movie in the theatre, you hear people munching on their chips, right.

  • So that's what it is, they are munching when you hear this noise. I don't know how to show

  • it to you right now but then you know when you eat chips or when you eat something which

  • is really crispy. Okay it's noisy right. Your eating is pretty noisy. So the right word

  • to use is, to munch. Well stop munching at that apple. Apples are usually nice and crispy

  • and they make a lot of noise when you eat it or chips when you eat it, it makes a lot

  • of noise. So that is munching. So eating in a noisy way. That crisp sound that comes out

  • of your mouth, that's munching. Okay and then the last one that I have for

  • you is, quaff. Well that how it should be pronounced as quaff and what it means? Well

  • it means to drink something with large draws. So when you are in a very happy mood and you

  • keep drinking and you take large sips, then that means that you're quaffing, your drink.

  • Drinking heartily with large sips. Okay some beverage that you really liked it, it's really

  • nice. Maybe your martini or your margarita and you take these large sips, this means

  • that you are quaffing your drink. Okay so these are some words that would help

  • you to talk about the ways of eating and of course drinking also. So please do use them.

  • I'm sure this would help you to talk fluently and I’ll be back with a new lesson soon,

  • till then you take care.
