오늘의 영어표현은 Pick a fight입니다. When you pick a fight it means that you purposely start an argument or a fight with someone. 단어 ‘pick’은 고르다, 선택하다 또는 뽑다’라는 뜻이고요 pick a fight은 ‘ 누군가에게 싸움(시비)을 걸다, 싸움을 일으키다 또는 다투다’는 의미 입니다. 예문을 들어볼까요? Let me give you some examples. “Stop picking a fight about what I said. There is no need to argue.”라고 하면 “내가 한 말 갖고 괜히 트집 잡지 마. 쓸데 없이 다툴 필요 없잖아.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “Blake always tried to pick a fight with his younger sister.”라고 하면 “블래이크는 툭하면 여동생에게 싸움을 건다.”는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to pick a fight right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
