  • Hi, everybody, welcome back to Know Your Verbs!

  • My name is Alisha.

  • In this episode, we're going to talk about the verblive.”

  • Let's go!

  • The basic definition of the verb, “liveis to be alive.

  • Like, “I want to live!” or, “It lives!”

  • It Lives,” that was a horror movie.

  • Conjugations of this verb.

  • Present, “live,” “lives.”

  • Past, “lived.”

  • Past participle, “lived.”

  • Progressive, “living.”

  • Now, let's talk about some additional meanings of this verb.

  • The first meaning is to spend your time in your life.

  • Some examples of this.

  • She lives to work.”

  • He lives to make delicious food.”

  • In these sentences, were seeing the purpose of that person's life.

  • What does that person do, how does that person spend the majority of their time in their

  • life?

  • In the first example sentence, “She lives to work.”

  • So, “workis the thing she spends the majority of her time doing.

  • She lives to do that thing, she lives in order to work.

  • In the second example sentence, “He lives to make delicious food.”

  • That's the purpose of his life, that's how he spends his time in his life, making delicious

  • food.

  • He lives to do that thing.

  • The second meaning I want to talk about is to share a space with someone else, to share

  • your residence with someone else.

  • Examples.

  • We've lived together for a year.”

  • She still lives with her parents.”

  • So, in these example sentences, “We've lived together for a year,” the first one means,

  • we,” meaning the speaker and someone else have lived together, have shared a space

  • together for one year.

  • In the second example sentence, “She still lives with her parents,” we see thatshe,”

  • whoever she is, still shares a space for her home with her parents.

  • In the first example sentence, “We've lived together for a year,” it could be the speaker

  • and someone else, it could be the speaker and the listener, just depends on whowe,”

  • is, in that case.

  • The third additional meaning is to remain in our memories or in our records.

  • So, examples of this.

  • The musicians work will live forever.”

  • Our grandfather lives on in photos.”

  • In these examples, we're seeing that some memory of a person or some memory of a person's

  • work or maybe a historical event, whatever it is, it remains in memories or it remains

  • like there's some record of that thing.

  • That could mean written records, it could mean photos, it could mean videos, whatever.

  • These refers to something that remains.

  • We use this a lot after a person has died, actually, or we could say for people whose

  • work, especially for artists, their work is going to live forever is another way we could

  • say that, meaning it's going to remain forever, someone like with a big impact.

  • We might use this verb, “live,” in this meaning of this verb, to talk about something

  • they're doing or something that they're making.

  • So, “The musicians work will live forever,” means the musicians work will remain in our

  • memories and in our records forever.

  • Like Bach, for example, or Rachmaninoff, composers are a great example of this, classical, Baroque,

  • romantic music composers, those are great examples.

  • Before, there was the Internet, before photo and video, there was written work, written

  • pieces of music.

  • Their work, their musical work lives on in their compositions.

  • There's a record of the things that they did.

  • In the second example sentence, “My grandfather lives on in photos,” means my grandfather

  • remains or the image of my grandfather, our memories of our grandfather remain in photos.

  • The first variation of this verb is the expression, “to live up to.”

  • This means to behave in accordance with something.

  • Let's look at some examples.

  • “I'm not sure if I can live up to your expectations of me.”

  • He never lives up to his promises.”

  • To live up tosomething is to act in accordance with something else.

  • In the first example sentence, “I'm not sure if I can live up to your expectations

  • of me,” means that the speaker is concerned he or she will not be able to act in accordance

  • with the listener's expectation.

  • So, listener has some expectation for the speaker and the speaker is worried that the

  • speaker cannot meet that expectation but we say, “can't live up to your expectation,”

  • in that case.

  • In the second example sentence, “He never lives up to his promises,” means he never

  • fulfills his promises, he never acts in accordance with his promises.

  • He promises A but he doesn't complete A, there's no like matching behavior there.

  • He doesn't meet his promises, he doesn't fulfill, he doesn't live up to his promises.

  • Second variation isto live with.”

  • To live withmeans to tolerate or to stand or to deal with something.

  • Some examples.

  • How much of this bad behavior can you live with?”

  • If I put my family through a scandal, I don't think I would be able to live with myself.”

  • Okay, we see here, “to live with somethingmeans an ability to tolerate something.

  • In my first example, it's a question, “How much of this bad behavior can you live with?”

  • We use this verb to mean tolerate or put up with.

  • Put up withalso, we use in the same way aslive withhere.

  • How much of this are you going to allow to continue before you say something?” for

  • example.

  • How much of this can you live with?”

  • Just like this behavior, someone else's bad behavior is there all the time living with

  • you.

  • So, “How much of it can you live with?

  • How much?”

  • Not very much.”

  • Maybe, “I can't live with this anymore.

  • Stop it!

  • Go away!”

  • So, that's one.

  • In the second example of sentence about a family scandal.

  • I used the expression, “I don't think I would be able to live with myself.”

  • Live with myselfactually means I don't think I would be able to tolerate myself because

  • of my bad behavior.

  • So, if my family experienced a scandal because of something I did, I wouldn't be able to

  • tolerate myself meaning I would be really upset with myself, I would be unhappy, I would

  • be disappointed in myself.

  • We use the expression, “I wouldn't be able to live with myself.”

  • I hope that those are a few new ways that you can use the verb, “live.”
