오늘 영어표현은 be cooped up입니다. Cooped up means that someone or something is kept inside, or kept in a tight and small place for a period of time. It basically means that one is confined or placed in a small space, unable to leave somewhere. Coop 은 명사로 ‘우리, 새장, 닭장, 비좁은 장소’이라는 뜻이고요, be cooped up은 ‘좁은 곳에 갇혀있다. 꼼짝 못하고 들어앉아 있다’ 라는 의미입니다. 일정 기간 아무 데도 가지 못하고 좁은 곳에 묶여 있는 경우에 쓸 수 있습니다. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? Let me give you some examples. “ I hate being cooped up in the house all day long.” 라고 하면 “나는 온종일 집 안에만 있는 건 싫어.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “It’s hard to go on a road trip with all my three kids in one car because they don’t like being cooped up.”라고 하면 “우리 아이들은 좁은 공간에 있는 걸 싫어하기 때문에 차 한 대로 먼 데 가는 건 힘들어.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to be cooped up right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
