Q Vocab: Big Mouth




KEy ENGLISH FLASH TUTORIAL :


"BIG MOUTH"
If you 'are a big mouth' or 'have a big mouth' it means you talk too much, especially about things which should be kept secret or avoided.



For example:



1. Fran's got such a big mouth. She's been telling everyone that I'm engaged. I wanted to tell them myself.



2. Oh no, me and my big mouth! I made Alex feel upset when I mentioned his dead cat.



3. Don't be such a big mouth. You should learn to keep other people's problems to yourself.



Don't confuse it with:
To bad-mouth. If you 'bad-mouth' someone it means you say negative things about them behind their back.



She's always bad-mouthing her friends. I really don't like it.
