Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 223. The idiom today is without further ado. Yeah,
especially it's used in a lot of formal or business sense.
We often hear it usually when somebody wants to say , come on we have to do
something. We got to do it right now. So let's look at the note here. So if
someone says without further ado, it means immediately or without delay. Okay.
And you know, let's just look at 'ado' for a second. Ado is an old word that means
either fuss, bother, or delay. So if you say without further ado, it means well
without for the delay or without further fuss. Let's just do it. Let's just
begin it. Remember a long time ago I did you know, it's from Shakespeare much ado
about nothing. Ado in that sense meant fuss, like a
lot of talk about something. So ado is an old word from Old English that we
still use. That comes up and that's what it means in this phrase. Without further
ado. So without any further fuss or bother or delay. Let's get right into it.
Let's just do it. So let's look at several examples we
have here. Without further ado, it is time to introduce our guest. You know , probably
at some event or something. Yeah. The person is speaking into the microphone might
say that. Or you know, without further ado, let's start the performance. You know,
again you know when they're introducing people that are coming out on a stage or
something like that. Without further ado, let's start the meeting, especially like
a business meeting. Meaning you know, no more delay, no more bother. Let's get
right into it. Let's just do it. Okay Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it's
clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye
