  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 125. The verb phrase today is to

  • sleep something off. Okay. We got two meanings here. Let's look at the first

  • meaning. If someone sleeps something off, he or

  • she gets rid of some unpleasant condition by getting extra sleep. So we

  • often might hear that one. Or number two if someone sleeps off the effects of

  • alcohol, I think alcohol is number one, especially

  • a hangover. We might often hear somebody slept or tries to sleep off a hangover. But

  • sleep off the effects of alcohol or drugs , he or she tries to sleep until the

  • effects wear off. Okay. So let's take a look at some examples here. Example

  • number one. I had a really bad cold, so I took some medicine and stayed in bed all

  • weekend to sleep it off. Try to sleep off this cold you know, stay in bed until

  • this cold just went away and you felt better. So you try to sleep it off. Okay.

  • Or number two Jack woke up with a hangover from drinking the night before.

  • Yeah. So maybe he went to a nightclub or a bar and he woke up with a hangover. So he

  • decided to go back to bed to sleep it off . Yeah, just go to sleep and hopefully by

  • the time I wake up again maybe the headache will have reduced or gone away.

  • He's just trying to sleep it off. All right. Good. And the third one here. The

  • side effects from that medicine made me very drowsy.

  • You know, like feeling like yawning drowsy. So I went to bed to sleep it off.

  • All right. So in all these cases, you try to sleep it off until the condition goes

  • away , especially alcohol, especially drinking. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I

  • hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
