VERBS WITH OUT: OUTDO
VERBS WITH OUT: OUTDO: meaning and examples
Welcome back, everyone!
It's the second day of our verbs-with-OUT theme and today we are looking at the verb TO OUTDO.
Definition: To be superior to in action or performance.
Example 1: We have a party every Christmas and everyone wears ugly sweaters. We always try to outdo ourselves each year and wear an uglier sweater than the year before.
Example 2: You really outdid yourself!
Note how we often use this verb reflexively (examples 1 and 2) to show that one did something better than the time before.
Example 3: She always tries to outdo her big sister. They are always fighting.
That's all for today. Join us tomorrow, when we will have another lesson with an OUT verb.
Have a great day!
