Hi, can any one help me with the meaning of this sentence: " Sticking their necks out for scientific research." It is a sentence in short video about the secret of giraffes' long necks. In my opinion, it is not a complete sentence, but in the transcript on the video, it is written like that. Anyway, it is taken from the official BBC youtube channel, so I think it cannot be incorrect. Please help me with the meaning and grammar as well. Thank you so much

Hi nguyenphuongvy,

To 'stick your neck out' means to take a risk, so the idea here is that the giraffes have furthered scientific research by being subjects of this study, and of course this is supposed to be a bit humorous since giraffes have no choice but to stick their necks out.

You're right when you say this is not a complete sentence, but especially in speaking, incomplete sentences are not at all uncommon. This one, for example, could be used to introduce the programme.

I hope this helps you understand it better.
