오늘 영어표현은 put a sock in it입니다. When you impolitely tell someone to put a sock in it, you are telling that person to be quiet. Imagine this, if your close friend is being loud and very noisy, and you decide to stuff socks in their mouth, it’s showing that you want them to quiet down or to be quiet. Also remember that this phrase is informal so it would be appropriate if used with close friends, not someone like your boss or your parents. ‘Put a sock in it’은 공손하지 않은 표현입니다. 윗사람이나 직장 상사에게 써서는 안 되고요 친구 사이에서나 사용할 수 있습니다. 조용히 해라 또는 입 다물어 정도의 느낌이라고 생각하시면 되겠습니다. 쉽게 말해서 누가 시끄럽게 굴 때 입에다 양말을 넣어서 조용하게 만든다는 얘깁니다. 예를 들어볼까요? “Will you put a sock in it! I already said I’d do the dishes. You don’t have to keep telling me.”라고 하면 “알았어. 그만 얘기해. 설거지한다고 했잖아. 그러니까 잔소리 그만하고 조용히 좀 해.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어볼까요? “Gloria, put a sock in it! We are in the library plus we are trying to quietly study here.” 라고 하면 “야 글로리아! 조용히 좀 해! 여기 도서관이잖아.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to put a sock in it right?
