Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 33. The noun phrase today is
wallflower. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If you say someone is a
wallflower, especially a young girl. Yeah we don't really use it with guys. It's
mostly a young girl. You mean she is very shy and does not get involved in dancing
or being active at parties or social events. Yeah. So that's kind of the idea.
She's just standing there almost like she's just a flower. Not doing anything.
Looking lonely and I don't know. Maybe, maybe there weren't many guys actually
asking her to dance or she wasn't going out just joining and dancing. You know,
nowadays sometimes two girls would even get out there and dance just to have fun.
But if you're a wallflower, you're just kind of standing there looking at other
people just kind of waiting. That's what we mean by a wallflower. Somebody is a
wallflower. All right. So let's take a look at the first example here. Go ask
Jessica to dance. She looks like a wallflower standing around watching
other people dance. Yeah. So this may be somebody feeling sorry for her and maybe
asking one of the other guys. Yeah just go ask her to dance.
Have a few dances, dances with her you know, so she doesn't feel so lonely
or out of place or something like that. All right. Let's continue. Let's look at
the second example here. When I was younger I was a bit of a wallflower. I
would just sit there waiting for someone to ask me to dance and I was too
embarrassed to ask a boy to dance. Okay. Yes. That's kind of a perfect example.
Yeah. So this is what we mean if we say somebody is a wallflower. Again,
especially a young girl that's just standing there not very active in the
party. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.
