            5 Phrases With the Word “Lovers”

            5 Phrases With the Word “Lovers”

            You may know that Valentine’s Day is coming up in a couple weeks. This is a holiday which stems from European Catholic culture and traditions (Saint Valentine being a Catholic saint who has come to be associated with love.)

            Sometimes when we use the word “phrase” we mean it as an expression or idiom. However, in grammar, the technical meaning of a phrase is a set of words that act as a single unit. In other words, it is not the same thing as a complete sentence. A phrase therefore must be at least two words which work together in a sentence.

            For example, in the sentence, “I hate those dirty old jeans,” the phrase “those dirty old jeans” acts as a single object (which I hate).

            Here are five phrases which have the word “lovers” or “lovers’.” Even though the word lover means someone that we are in love with (and the person loves us back), not all the phrases have a positive meaning. Let’s start with one with a negative meaning:

            1.) Lovers’ quarrel: A lovers’ quarrel is a fight between two people who are in love.

            2.) Lovers’ lane: the phrase lovers’ lane refers to a quiet place alone where two lovers can go to kiss or spend “alone” time together.

            3.) Lovers’ knot: Lovers’ knots are different types of knots of rope together which symbolize love and deep connections between people.

            4.) Lovers’ leap (or lover’s leap): this is another negative phrase. It refers to a place where someone can jump to end their own life. This might be someone who had their heart broken, or perhaps a couple who has gone too crazy for each other.

            5.) The last one is “star-crossed lovers.” Did you ever read or see The Hunger Games? You may recall that the main protagonists of the movie, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark – who later fell in love – were referred to several times as “star-crossed lovers” by the game host Caesar Flickerman. Actually, this is another negative phrase. Star-crossed lovers are thought to be two fated to love each other but also fated to be doomed (destroyed) because the stars are against them. Think: Romeo & Juliet! But in The Hunger Games at least, everything worked out in the end. Mostly.

            Have a lovely Valentine’s Day!

            The English language is always developing and changing. Actually, every language is. But since English has become the global language for communication, keeping up with the latest slang is not a bad idea. Today’s slang is tomorrow’s regular vocabulary.
            1. Woke
            This particular term refers to being very aware of current affairs. Those who have a firm understanding of the reality around them or come to terms with the fact that their previous beliefs may have been false can be referred to as “woke”.
            2. Flex
            No, we’re not talking about showing off your muscles at the gym – the slang term “flexing” actually describes the act of showing off your valuables or lavish lifestyle in a very non-humble way. For example the act of certain influencers “flexing on Instagram”.
            3. Left on read
            Originating from the read receipts on iMessage that show when the other person has seen your text, getting “left on read” refers to someone reading your text and not replying to it. Perhaps one of the biggest insults of our time.
