send off

< Previous | Next >


Dear all,

The sentence goes, " The person who sends off bad body language may not even realize that they're doing it."

According to the OALD, send off has the following meanings:
1. send off (for sth) write to sb to ask for sth to be sent to one by post
2. send sb off (Brit) (of a referee, etc) send a footballer, etc off the playing field for breaking the rules of play
3. send sth off send sth by post; dispatch sth

It seems that the phrase is wrongly used. What's your opinion?

Thank you in advance.
