Now, the VOA Special English Program WORDS AND THEIR STORIES.

 

Every language has its own special words and expressions. And a story can be told about each of them.

 

"Hot" is a simple, easily understood word. So are most of the expressions made of the word "hot", but not always, as we shall see.

 

The words "hot potato," for example, give you no idea at all to the meaning of the expression hot potato. The potato is a popular vegetable in the United States. Many people like bake potatoes, cooked in an oven or fire. Imagine trying to carry a hot potato in your handit would be difficult, even painful to do so. Now we are getting close to the meaning of hot potato.

 

Some publicly disputed issues are highly emotional. The issues must be treated carefully, or they will be difficult and painful if an elected official has to deal with them, as difficult and painful as holding a hot potato.

 

One such hot potato is taxes. Calling for higher taxes can mean defeat for a politician. And yet, if taxes are not raised, some very popular government programs could be cut. And that also can make a politician very unpopular. So the questions must be dealt with carefully. The same way you will handle any other hot potato.

 

Another expression is "not so hot." If you ask someone how she feels, she may answer "not so hot." What she means is she does not feel well. Not so hot also a way of saying you do not really like something. You may tell a friend that a new play you saw last night is not so hot. That means you did not consider it a success.

 

"A hot shot" is a person, often a young person who thinks he can do anything. At least, he wants to try. He is very sure he can success, but often he fails. The expression was born in the military forces. A hot shot was a soldier who fired without aiming carefully.

 

Hot is a word that is often used to talk about anger. A person who becomes angry easily is called "a hot hard." An angry person's neck often becomes red. We say he is "hot under the color." You could say that your friend is no hot hard but he got hot under the color when someone tooks his radio.

 

In nineteen sixty-three, "hot line" appeared as a new expression. The hot line was a direct communication's link between the leaders of the Soviet Union and the United States. The hot line had an important purpose. To prevent accidental war between the two competitors during the period know as the cold war. The American president and the Soviet leader were able to communicate directly and immediately on the hot line. These help prevent any conflict during an international crisis.
