TO CUT CORNERS: meaning and examples

Hello again. I hope you are having a good day.

Today's expression is: to cut corners.

It means: to do incomplete work in order to save time or money.

Example 1: Some geologists say that too many corners were cut during the construction of the AVE between Madrid and Lleida; the tracks may not be totally safe.

Example 2: If we're going to get this report done before tomorrow, we're going to have to cut some corners.

Have a wonderful day!
