Wing it!

October 18, 2017


今日の話題は: One-point English


「wing it」

皆さんは聞いたことありますか?ちょっと不思議な表現です。なぜかというと「wing」は「翼」いう意味なんですが、「wing it」の方は「翼」と関係ありません!

「wing it」は「適当にやる」という意味です。例えば:

A: How should I answer? (どういう風に答えればいいの?)
B: Wing it. (適当に答えればいい)


I’m going to wing my presentation because I forgot to prepare.

基本的に準備していない時ややり方がわからない時に「wing it」は普通に使われています。


A: What should I say in my job interview?
B: I don’t know. Just be honest. Wing it.

C: I should have decided to wing my speech. Nobody liked it.
D: Do you think so? I saw 2 or 3 people applaud.

E: Oh my god! You got a perfect score! How did you do it?
F: I don’t know. I was just winging it.

That’s it!
