This is what I found on Longman dictionary:

say: American English informal
used to express surprise, or to get someone's attention so that you can tell them something: Say, haven't I seen you before somewhere?

So I guess here, "says" works as an interjection. My ex- foreign coworker also uses this word before or in sentences.

Question:

"God, I hate when I get that way." Is it a correct and common expression? I think it should be "I hate it when I get that way."

Hi Kooper, Janet, Na'vi,

It was SOOOO much fun chatting with you guys! Thanks for having me. I even learned a word! :D Have to find some ways to use "emergent" now. :wink: ("Emerging" is more common.)

It'd take A LOT of words to explain, "Says the prince as he rides off into the sunset. Boy did the movies ever get that wrong." Please remind me next Sunday! :D

Thanks to Kat, not only did we practice the expression used in the episode under each scenario, but we learned alternative expressions. Here is a summary of them.


當孩子不太(敢)跟人打招呼時,對對方說: She is shy. She doesn’t say much. (2) She takes a bit warm-up. (3)She will warm up in a minute.
臨時去敲鄰居家門時說: I hope this isn’t a bad time. (2)Is it a good time? (3)I hope I’m not interrupting something.
鄰居來敲自己家門, 不知對方來意. 應門時說: What can I do for you, Mr/Mrs. Xxx? (2) May I help? (3) What’s up? (only to very close friend)
抱歉自己太晚或臨時通知時說: I’m sorry it’s such late/short notice.
婉拒別人的邀約時說: I already have plans (for tomorrow). (2) Sorry – I’ll have to take a rain check (on that). (3) Maybe next time.
邀約別人被婉拒時說: Oh, That’s too bad.
結束談話要離開時說: Well, I should go. (2)It’s time to go. (3)Wow, look at the time. I gotta go.
當別人正準備要去作一件事, 祝他玩得開心愉快時說: Have fun. (2)Enjoy yourself. (3)Have a great time. (4)have a ball. (used for a party) (5)have a blast (used for a party)
用於告訴對方今晚他想做什麼都可以: Tonight, anything goes.
請某人等一下時說: Hold on. (2)Wait. (3)Hang on. (4)Wait/Just/Give me a second/moment/minute.
說明自己還無法從某事件中走出來: I haven’t been able to get past it. (2) I haven’t been able to move on.
因為過度運動造成身體痠痛. 說自己太逞強: I think I just pushed myself too hard. (2)I think I have overdone it.

Hi Kooper, thank YOU!

Just a few tiny corrections: :wink:

1. (2) She takes a bit (of time) to warm up.
3. (2) May I help you?
8. "Have a ball" came from "dance parties" but, along with "have a blast", can be used on other things too.
11. Another great way to put it is: I haven't been able to get over it.

Love the notes! You did a fabulous job with the meeting too.

I'm going to LA for the holidays so not sure when I can be on next. But I'd love to join you again when I get back. You guys rock and keep up the good work! :D

Hi, Chiron, or should I call you Na'Vi? :D

I guess here "drop" means 丟掉, "act" means 演戲, so it may mean 不要演戲了!

Just my guess, i am not 100% sure
