  • Hi,
    IT'S VERY lovely site.
  • Ishare your opinion.
  • Hello laughter,


    Just the right day to enquire about "nip" because there is a nip in the air today or it's a bit nippy ,which means it's quite cold or chilly. It comes from "to nip"= (among other definitions) to pinch, to bite.


    As for "to nip something in the bud", it means you stop something before it has an opportunity to start or be established.


    EX His illness was nipped in the bud because it was detected early enough.


    If you speak French, it means: tuer qch dans l'oeuf, faire avorter qch.


    No connection but in informal American English "to have a nip and tuck" means to have plastic surgery.


    I hope you won't nip off (run away) when you see my long explanation!LOL
