  • So let's look at some examples.

  • I lost so much money on this project, and you're gonna lose a lot of time if you don't work more efficiently.

  • Okay, so in the 1st 1 I lost so much money on this project, meaning I failed to use money effectively or have failed to use my money in a good way.

  • In this project, I lost money as a result of this project.

  • In the second example, you're gonna lose a lot of time.

  • Well, in other words, meaning three.

  • Let's go on to the third meaning the third meeting is to fail to maintain, to fail to maintain something like to fail to maintain your like, mental state, For example, home.

  • Let's look examples.

  • Uh, she lost her mind when she saw her bank account had been emptied and he ran too fast and lost his breath.

  • It doesn't mean like her head was separated from her body.

  • It means she lost control of she could not maintain her mental state, her mental condition, because something else happened.

  • Like she lost her mind when she saw her bank account had been emptied like she went crazy.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • It was such a surprising situation.

  • She lost her mind.

  • She lost control in the second example sentence.

  • He lost his breath because of running so he could not control his breathing.

  • But we say lost my breath or he lost his breath.

  • You need to, like, remove weight from your body in the second example, we lost our Attackers means like we were separated, we were able to separate ourselves.

  • We were able to remove the Attackers from us because we like we hid under a bush in this case, the situation.

  • But either way you're separating from something else.

  • You're removing yourself from something else losing weight or losing your Attackers.

  • In this case, let's go on to some variations of this for them.

  • All right.

  • First variation.

  • The first variation is to lose one's lunch to lose one's lunch.

  • This is an expression we use that means to vomit means to throw up to lose your lunch.

  • Examples of this, uh, I'm about to lose my lunch and someone lost their lunch on the airplane.

  • So in that second sentence, it doesn't mean that, like someone forgot lunch in their seat on the airplane.

  • This is an expression that we use to mean Someone vomited on an airplane.

  • Someone lost their lunch on an airplane, but it sounds less disgusting to say, Lose your lunch.

  • It's like because the idea is like you ate lunch and then it came back up and you lost it.

  • It was separated from you.

  • You lost your lunch.

  • That thing?

  • That's the idea.

  • We don't say Lost your breakfast.

  • We don't say Lost your dinner.

  • We only say lunch.

  • I don't know why, but that's the expressions.

  • Last free brunch.

  • Brunch.

  • It's always lost My lunch always lost my lunch, so it means to vomit to throw up.

  • You okay?

  • The last variation for this verb is to lose it to lose it where it is your emotional control to lose it.

  • So to lose it means to go crazy toe lose your emotional control.

  • So examples of this my mom lost it when I said I spent all her money.

  • And the second example, my boss is gonna lose it when he finds out we didn't meet our goals for the month.

  • Okay, so in these sentences we see in the 1st 1 my mom lost.

  • It means my mom lost her emotional control.

  • She was no longer able to maintain her emotional control.

  • Ah, so she lost it.

  • So it is emotional control in the second sentence.

  • My boss is gonna lose it.

  • Meaning in the future, my boss is going to go crazy in a bad way.

  • When he sees that we didn't meet our sales schools.

  • So my boss is going to lose his emotional control.
