오늘의 영어표현은 drop (someone) a line입니다. When you drop someone a line, it means that you correspond with that person and let him or her know how you are doing. So you basically you keep in touch with someone. You can do so by calling, emailing, sending a brief letter, or by other methods of communication. Drop someone a line 에서 ‘a line’은 짧은 편지(short written message), 짤막하게 전하는 소식이라는 뜻이고요, 결국 ‘drop someone a line’은 ‘안부를 전하다, 소식을 전해주다’ 는 의미입니다. 편지, 전화, 전자우편 그 밖에 여러 통신 수단으로 소식을 알려주는 걸 말하는 거죠. 이것과 비슷한 표현이 있는데요, 바로 ‘touch base’입니다. Touch base는 ‘접촉하다, 연락하다’ 라는 뜻이죠. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? Let me give you some examples. “I think it will be nice to drop Deanna a line and tell her how you are doing.” 라고 하면 “디야나에게 연락해서 네 안부를 전해주는 게 좋을 것 같아.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “When you get a chance, can you drop a line?” 라고 하면 “시간 날 때 나한테 안부 좀 전해 줄 수 있겠니?”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to drop (someone) a line right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
