UP FOR GRABS

Jason: Hey, how are things at work? Anything new?
Mike: Actually, yes! My boss told everyone today that the new position is up for grabs, as long as you’re qualified for it.
Jason: Oh nice! You should apply for it. There is nothing to lose right?
Mike: Absolutely. There is nothing to lose.

Jason이 Mike에게 “Hey, how are things at work? Anything new? 잘 지내니? 요즘 회사에 별 일 없어?” 라고 묻자 Mike가 “Actually, yes! 물론 있지. My boss told everyone today that the new position is up for grabs, as long as you’re qualified for it. 새로운 일자리가 나왔는데 자격이 있는 사람은 누구나 지원할 수 있대.”라고 합니다. 이어 Jason이 “Oh nice! You should apply for it. There is nothing to lose right? 오 그래? 너도 지원해봐. 뭐 손해 볼 거 없잖아.” 라고 하더라고요. Keep today’s phrase ‘up for grabs’ in mind and let’s listen to the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

오늘 영어표현은 ‘up for grabs’입니다. If something or someone is up for grabs, then it is available to anyone who can claim it or wants to try to get it. ‘Up for grabs’는 노력만 하면 누구라도 차지할 수 있는, 실력대로의 라는 뜻입니다. 다만 동작도 어느 정도 빨라야 하고 서둘러야 얻을 수 있다는 의미가 담겨있습니다. ‘Grab’ 가 ‘움켜잡다’ 또는 ‘(~)을 붙잡다’ 라는 뜻이라는 걸 생각해보면 쉽게 이해하실 수 있으실 것입니다. Here is an example. ‘My class textbooks will be up for grabs as soon as the semester is over. Is anyone interested in taking it?’ 라고 하면 ‘이번 학기 끝나면 누구든 원하는 사람에게 내가 쓰던 교과서를 줄 거야.’ 라 뜻이 됩니다. Now let’s listen to this conversation for the last time.
