FLAT (tire)   パンクした


  • A tire is flat if it has lost most or all of the air that was inside it.

    Be Careful! In English, we do NOT use the expression “punk” 「パンク」 to mean “flat tire”.
  • flat とは、タイヤの中にあった空気の大半、あるいは全部が抜けた状態、つまり、パンクした状態のことです。

    注意:日本語で言う「パンク」のことを英語では flat tire と言います。


  1. Sorry I'm late. I got a flat tire on the way here.
  2. a: Do you know how to fix a flat (= flat tire)?
    b: I've seen my father do it, but I've never done it myself.
  3. (talking about a bicycle)
    Your back wheel needs some air. It's almost flat.
