2.en.8. Stand, stood, stood and some idiomatic expressions with the verb to stand

Stand, stood, stood; Stand by; Stand for; Stand out; I can’t stand.

You all know what the verb to stand means, don’t you?  But I bet you do not know many of the idiomatic expressions with stand. Today we’ll learn a few. To begin with , let’s start with the title of the film.” Stand by me”

Stand by = apoyar, respaldar

“Stand by me” has been translated as “Cuenta conmigo”, but it also could have been translated as “Apóyame”, “Respáldame”

The opposite Let someone downdejar en la estacada, fallar, no apoyar y dejar tirado a alguien.

Stand out = destacar, sobresalir

Stand for= defender, abogar

Stand for= significar, representar

  • Basketball players stand out in the crowd, they are usually so tall!
  • Stand for your rights, don’t let bullies frighten you.
  • What does UFO stand for?

There’s a very common expression with stand, “I can’t stand”= I strongly dislike, I hate

I’ll give you three examples of somethings I cannot stand:

I can’t stand bullies and violent people

I can’t stand people who are whining all the time

I can’t stand lying on the beach for hours

I can’t stand Reggaeton

I can’t stand crazy driving and the sound of motorbikes speeding up in the city

What about you?

Homework : Write 5 things you can’t stand and post them to the blog.
