Hello hoavt198,

I'm not sure why you can't find it in the dictionary! If you use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool on the right then you'll find it without any problems. The spelling can be 'nosey' or 'nosy' - both will work.

 

Best wishes,

yes. i used the Cambridge Dictionaries Online but there's no that word. can you explain the meaning of the word ' nosey ' for me? what is the type of word? noun or adjective? thank you very much.

Hello hoavt198,

That's strange - I just searched for both of those words and found them. If you can't find it there, you can see a definition here.

Hello, dear LE team. I'm new here. Can you help me with this question? "and tripped over one of the parties at a table". Does party mean a part of the table or a group of people? Thank you!

Hello aloiz80,

Welcome! In this context, 'party' can refer to a single person or a group of people, and is a common way or referring to customers in a restaurant. See the dictionary entry (use the search box in the grey area on the right side of this page) for more:

party - noun [C] (PARTICULAR GROUP)

› a ​particular ​group of ​people who are ​involved in an ​activity: I made a ​dinner ​reservation for a party of eight.

party - noun [C] (ONE INVOLVED)

› one of the ​people or ​sides ​involved in a ​formal ​agreement or ​argument, esp. a ​legal one: The UN called on all parties to ​lay down ​their ​arms.

the task 4 was confused

Hallo

what does "What have you got to lose?" means ?

I have no idea what does it mean..

Thank you so much

It means that you cannot make things worse or lose anything by doing a thing.

Harry has nothing to lose by going to Johnny's company for a chat = Harry cannot make his condition worse by doing that = If Harry does it, nothing bad is going to happen.

Hello ChandraParema,

You can find the answers to vocabulary questions like this by using our Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool. Just type 'what have you got to lose' into the search window and click 'Look it up!' to get a definition, grammatical information and more. It's a very useful tool.

Best wishes,
