TO ANNOY: meaning and examples
I received a question about yesterday's Daily Vitamin from José Luis C., but it had nothing to do with the expression knock it off.
It's the first time I've seen the word "annoying." ??
Today's word is: to annoy
It means: to make someone a little angry; to make someone uncomfortable or unable to relax. To disturb or bother someone.
It really annoys me when people throw their rubbish on the ground.
Do you know what really annoys me? Mosquitoes buzzing in my ear when I'm trying to sleep.
Annoying is the adjective form of the verb.
Matthew's emails are very annoying; but I have to admit...they are helping me to stay in contact with English each day.
Thank you for your question José Luis. Tomorrow, after today's last-minute change, we will look at a couple of more informal spoken expressions that we use to ask a person to stop doing something that is annoying us.
Please post any questions about today's Daily Vitamin in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.
Have a good day.
