    default Using “Mean” in your English Class

    on Mon Apr 01, 2013 12:04 am
    We use mean as a verb and the definition is to signify or indicate. We use mean in language to talk about the definition of a word or phrase:

    The phrasal verb “put out” means “extinguish.”
    The word “sprint” means “to run at full speed for a short distance.”
    What does this word mean?
    Be careful! We say “It means ~” and not “It’s mean ~”

    A: Do you know the word “hardly ever?”

    B: Yes. It means “almost never.” Not, It’s mean “almost never.”

    The noun form is the word meaning. We use meaning like this:

    The meaning of the phrasal verb “put out” is “extinguish.”
    The meaning of the word “sprint” is “to run at full speed for a short distance.”
    What is the meaning of this word?
