No. You can say I kicked the habit, like smoking for example. It usually means to stop a bad habit.Hi,
I just learned an American slang word, kick, which means to stop doing something.
So, could I say,
Please kick talking, you are so annoying.
Is the mood strong enough to express one's negative emotion?
Thank yous guys
Hi, MarcB,No. You can say I kicked the habit, like smoking for example. It usually means to stop a bad habit.
Here I would say quit your yakking. As far as I am concerned kick sounds odd here.OK, I see, but what about Kick you yacking?
These are other uses of kick,as you know words can have multiple meanings. So kick does mean stop but in the context of a bad habit.There are phrases in english that use kick and do not mean "stop," such as kick the tires (inspect the goods), kick her to the curb (break up with her), kick off (start of a football game), kick in (contribute), kick back (relax), etc. So no, kick does not mean stop, it depends on the phrase.
