Hits the nail

Postby Araktilar В» 20.04.2020

.

The phrase hit the nail on the head means to do or say something that is exactly right. Example: Bill was asked by his wife if he noticed anything different about the living room. He looked around for a few seconds while he thought about it and then he noticed that one of the reclining chairs was missing. I moved one of the chairs into our room while you were at work. It is hard to say where the phrase hit the nail on the head comes from.

After all, people have been hitting nails with hammers for a long, long time—thousands of years even. This phrase sounds like something a carpenter would come up with since, you know, they often work with hammers and nails.

So perhaps the saying has roots in carpentry. Anyways, we do have an idea on how old this idiom is. Nails have been around for a long time. Today, they come in various sizes and types that are best suited for different purposes. You know, like attaching shingles to the top of a home. Nails are frequently used in construction and woodworking. Common uses for them in the home include hanging a picture on a wall, joining one object to another, or repairing an old wooden fence.

A nail has three parts: The top of the nail which is usually flattened is called the head, the shaft is called the shank, and the sharp part at the bottom is called the point. Meaning: The phrase hit the nail on the head means to do or say something that is exactly right. Share Tweet Pin Reddit.
