Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー
GET IN(TO) / GET OUT (OF)   乗る/降りる


  • To get in or get into a car, van, truck, taxi, or limousine is to enter it.

    To get out or get out of a car, van, truck, taxi, or limousine is to exit it.

    Be Careful[1]! When get out is followed by the vehicle you are exiting, you must add “of”. For example, you say “get out OF the truck”, NOT “get out the truck”.

    Be Careful[2]! To talk about entering and exiting buses, trains, planes, or ships, it is more common to use the expressions “get on” and “get off”.

    * See the 15 June 2005 WordMaster, “GET ON / GET OFF”.
  • get in または get into は、乗用車、バン、トラック、タクシー、リムジンなどに乗る動作を表します。

    get out または get out of は、乗用車、バン、トラック、タクシー、リムジンなどから降りる動作を表します。

    注意[1]:get out の後に乗り物の名前がくるときには of をつけます。例えば、get out OF the truck と言いますが、get out the truck とは言いません。

    注意[2]:バス、電車、飛行機、船などの乗り降りについて話すときには get on や get off を使うのが一般的です。
