Super Useful Verbs: Lesson 2 – Pop
The verb pop often has a cute and fun feel to it, but not always (see below). It is often used in informal situations and seems to convey a meaning of speed and quickness. When talking about hitting (punching) someone, pop can be used in a fun or a serious way.

Definitions
1. pop (informal v.): to visit or go to a place for a brief period of time
2. pop (informal v.): to place or position something
3. pop (v.): to burst; to destroy something (often something intangible)
4. pop (informal v.): to hit or be hit; to kill



Examples
* Just pop that file on my desk. (2)
* You should pop over to see me on your way home. (1)
* I’ll pop into the shops to grab some milk on my way to the office. (1)
* I’ll pop my head into his office to see if he’s there. (1)
* He popped his zit in the mirror. (3)
* The balloon popped. (3)
* Where did he pop the file? (2)
* He got popped in the face by the bully. (4)
* The gangster got popped last night. (4)
* The terrible newspaper review popped the chef’s illusion that he had talent. (3)
* His ego got popped last night when he was fired from his job. (3)

Bonus Vocabulary
zit (n. informal): pimple; puss filled dot (usually on the face)
bully (n.): a person who tries to harm, intimidate, or coerce the vulnerable
ego (n.): one’s sense of self-worth or self-esteem

Communication Tip: Hanging Questions
Hanging questions can be used when you know you should know the information you are asking for but for some reason can’t remember at that moment. You can also use this style of asking questions when you are talking to people you think will definitely have the information you need.

In the example below, Beth should know who Steve is, but she can’t remember so she is prompting Mary with a half-finished sentence (i.e. a hanging question).

Example 1
Mary: Can you pop this on Steve’s desk?
Beth: Steve is…?
Mary: The boss.

Example 2
Chuck: I should pop this...?
Mary: On Steve's desk.
Chuck: Steve's desk is...?
Mary: Next to the CEO's desk.

For more information on ‘hanging questions’ you should check out the 'Grammar & Figurative Language' forum.
