TWIST-2: meaning and examples

Hello again everyone.

Before beginning, I wanted to invite you to read my blog entry from a couple of weeks ago, if you haven't already:

Today we continue our focus on the English word twist.

Today's expression is: to twist somone's arm (informal)

Meaning: to persuade or force someone to do something.

Example 1:  
I'm very sorry Alex. I didn't want to reduce your salary, but they twisted my arm. Apparently the company is having some serious financial problems.

Example 2:
Look Jack, are you willing to cooperate or am I going to have to twist your arm?

If you have any questions, let me know by posting a query in the Daily Vitamin Section on our website.

Have a great day!
