Expressões e Collocations com a palavra Talk – Parte I

Oi pessoal, esta semana estou apresentando os novos colaboradores do blog English Experts, hoje é o dia de vocês conhecerem Mary Ziller, ela é Americana e obviamente é uma Native English Speaker. Os textos da Mary serão em totalmente em Inglês, como não poderia deixar de ser. Segue abaixo o primeiro post. Mary, welcome to English Experts.I was inspired by this article “Priceless: falar Inglês é algo que não tem preço”. In English we have several idiomatic collocations of the word talk. Talk can be a noun or a verb.

  • If you give a talk, you are giving a speech or a lecture in an academic setting. It may be a colloquium talk (a specialized seminar lecture) or a pre-talk (a presentation by a graduate student to a more general area which serves as a prerequisite to the topic covered in the colloquium talk).
  • If you have a talk, you are having a meaningful, serious conversation.
  • Your ears should perk up if your boy- or girl- friend, parents, teacher or boss says “We have to talk.” It is a signal that you are in trouble and are about to find out just how much trouble you are in.
  • “We have to talk” is often a prelude to breaking up, getting fired, or otherwise ending a longstanding or vital relationship.

The most important of the kinds of talk that we classify is, in my opinion, positive self-talk. Self-talk is the internal monologue that plays in your head incessantly. It is the messages you tell yourself consciously and unconsciously and directs your behavior and attitudes. Positive self-talk consists of affirmations that bolster self-confidence and a “can do” attitude in life.

Alessandro, I would like to bottle your self-talk and sell it, if that were possible, hehe. You have so much energy and drive with a strong “can do” attitude that is amazing. I admire you and your work and it is a pleasure to be a member of English Experts with you and all the partners of your blog.
