A phrase a week (7)


Hello. Last week I looked at the difference between get dressed, dress, and put on. Now we’re turning our attention to their opposites: get undressed, undress, and take off. Here are some examples: Why did you get undressed, girls? I told you, no bath tonight. You’re going straight to bed! (a parent to his/her young daughters). James came home really tired and didn’t even have a meal. He undressed quickly and went to sleep. As you’ve probably worked out, undress is more formal, even though the two mean the same thing.

The opposite of put on is take off: Take off your jumper if you’re too hot.

Right. That’s all from me this week. I must put on a coat now. I’m going for a walk.

Take care
