VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
Gotta go. This phrase basically means that it is time to go or that the person has to leave immediately. Examples:
"Gotta go, Petra, I’ll call you later when I get back to my hotel room" or "He’s gotta go now, or he will miss his flight."
What’s the story?
The question "What’s the story?" basically means "What is going on?" or "What’s shaking?" or "What’s happening or taking place?"
The phrase "How’s that?" is another way of asking for you to repeat yourself, or explain it in another way so that it can be understood. Example:
"How’s that? I didn’t understand."
Over yonder, ’Round yonder
When something is "over yonder" it means that it is nearby and isn’t that far away. Example:
"The store is just over yonder, about a five minute walk from here."
Around the bend
When something is just "around the bend" this means that it is past the curve or bend in the road. The road may be bent or curved for any number of reasons, it matters not.
In the southern parts of the United States or in regions considered to be "out in the country" the term "bend" is used to describe the different major curves in the road as they "bend" around the small hills or mountains or may weave in and out of valleys.
If something is "three bends up the road" you are expected as you drive and to literally count three major instances where the road bends or curves, whether it is because of a hill being in the way or whether it is just because the road was designed this way. It really does not matter.
Going for a stroll
When someone goes out for a stroll this is a casual way of saying that they are going to go out for a walk or to walk around and relax. Examples:
"He went with his new girlfriend for a stroll in the gardens at the castle" or "They enjoyed a lovely stroll in the park, the weather was nice."
Going to slide on down
When a person is going to "slide on down" to some place it simply means that they are going to travel there. Examples:
"John said that he was going to slide on down to the cafe at the corner for a quick dinner" or "Let’s slide on over to that bar over there and see if there are some interesting people we can meet."
Unless you are really physically "sliding" over to or on something, in the English language the term "to slide" is not literal, but it is instead a figure of speech.
