Now, the VOA Learning English program, Words and Their Stories.

e]3u,o3^3PXE8#3odsC

On this program we explore words and common expressions in American English.

bqa04!-gr4kaf.-Jv

We communicate most commonly, of course, with our words. But we also speak with our bodies. We call it body language.

VR*F6CrhR8lG47

Sometimes, though, we need to describe our body language with words。 That is what today's show is about – talking about body language。

XJ)DC=2fHQrj^4u

Two types of body language have made their way into text messaging and social media language.

n5*-T~3Zlv

The most common is LOL. If we are LOL-ing, we are laughing out loud. That is what l-o-l stands for. And it is easy to know when to use this. If a friend writes something to you that is extremely funny – or hilarious – you can reply with a "LOL." In conversation, though, it sounds weird to say the letters "L-O-L."

Po;BEL8KJNetz.KVl

Here's another one you might see in a text message from a friend。

9;#8il+Wu_mi@Q~6s

大富豪彩票注册So, when someone nods their head up and down, that means they are in agreement. And if they shake their heads back and forth, it means they are disagreeing.

C7TeRl8*K@KXUcBV1

大富豪彩票注册Well, sometimes it does. Sometimes shaking one's head means something completely different.

,O6AnYy|8v3;YKJhN

For example, I might say I could only shake my head at his arrogance. This means that I couldn't believe that he had said or done something so arrogant. In a text, email or social media post, you can simply type SMH. But just as with LOL, it doesn't sound right in spoken English.

^FYPzOZr|kN

Here is an example of how to use the full phrase "shake my head" in a conversation.

J[GNC]Thos#Vux

I can't believe how your friend acted at the funeral! When the preacher began speaking, she laughed out loud. It was so disrespectful.

|tu_Adrz,xM.

大富豪彩票注册How do you think I felt? I was standing with her! I could only shake my head and cringe inside. It was so embarrassing!

J!n=^U~Oi.2

If your friend is always behaving badly, you may just have to throw your hands up. This body language expression means that you realize that you cannot do anything to make a situation better.

IYf,@Qo_2tC*

For example, let's say you are teaching a roomful of young children when suddenly a dog runs through the classroom! The children jump up and start laughing and chasing the dog。 You can't do anything to quiet them down。 So, you just throw your hands up and let them have fun。

N!sxm;t,BKGYNCVCL2

Shrugging your shoulders is when you raise and lower them。 As body language, it shows that you don't care about something。 But it can also mean that you are uncertain or perhaps just bored。

q(ppo)LNiv[W[0Rt*J

For example, let's say I am babysitting a friend's child。 At dinnertime, I ask the child, "So, do you want pasta or rice for dinner?" He doesn't say anything。 He just shrugs his shoulders。 So, I made my favorite – pasta with tomato sauce!

+!=~tYLcHuv

Rolling your eyes is another way to show you don't care。 This body language says that you don't care AT ALL about what someone is saying。 Eye-rolling is even more disrespectful than shoulder-shrugging。 So, teachers and parents often criticize children for eye-rolls by simply saying, "Don't roll your eyes at me!"

0u*1z=f4vf6M5MLhZX

Staying with the eyes, we come to raising eyebrows。 Usually when we raise our eyebrows, our faces look as if we are surprised or shocked by something。 But raising your eyebrows can also show that you disapprove of something。 There is a certain amount of judgement in eyebrow-raising。

VuE!D]#]0Db7BF[j[W

Let's hear it used in a short dialogue.

M=~Sx!IcK+AH!U=YxPV

Did you hear about Jack? During the weekly meeting with staff, he wore a head-to-toe clown costume.

pzI。f!CS。ui4,%

Oh, that's nothing. He lost a bet with his son and had to wear it.

_*vG%OEFnM]Fcg

Well, it raised some eyebrows around the office。 People are saying he isn't serious enough to be manager。

HT+;uggIQ.BPRZ

Wearing a clown costume is nothing to raise your eyebrows at. People should really lighten up!

C6Xhg,&0-fK

Now, when some people are nervous, they bite their nails。 It may not be a good habit, but it has given us a useful word。

[Lvycl9nuo5C+*UwPs0

Something, such as a game or a movie, that causes you to feel nervous because the ending is not known until the final moment is called a nail-biter!

。#CZYJIxI*CA2sajV=^

大富豪彩票注册When talking about a sporting event, the opposite of a nail-biter is a blow-out. A blow-out is a game where one team out scores the other by a lot!

6o[mq4a,0st!~

Did you watch the basketball game last night?

18qKlW)5O^zS0Y5@B

I did! What a great game。

l.4@Dtg!OoWqA2

I know. I haven't seen a game that close in a long time. It was a real nail-biter! The score was tied until the last 10 minutes!

o5|wc@DdX329]Dcep=

大富豪彩票注册It was a much better game than last week。 That game was a blow out。 One team scored 68 points in the first quarter while the other didn't even score one。 Boring。

+9u5r!zIB1;iK^%tq

And that's all for this Words and Their Stories.

x,#sHL(NLKUb)o=hmK

Even though this program is not a nail-biter, we hope you're not rolling your eyes or shrugging your shoulders with boredom. And we certainly hope your eyebrows aren't raised in disapproval. But we do hope you give us a thumbs up, which -- of course -- means "good job."

sS4[bI-,Hj3DHdM

I'm Anna Matteo.
