Joe's Cafe, 24/7 pit stop for ESL learners and teachers | October 2008
Egg's off, bacon's off, bread's off, tea's off. English is on though.
You may have seen those scary headlines in financial papers, or on TV: “Markets nosedive”
What does “nosedive” mean? These two pictures should make it clear. The first one shows an aircraft nosediving. The second one is a chart of a stock that opened at $90 at 9am and then nosedived between 3pm and 4pm to finish at $30.
