Alright, today we will start the vocabulary
for illness and injury. These are for minor illnesses and injuries. And then also we’ll move on to some common
phrasal verbs that are associated with illness and injury. So in each photo we’ll look, well at each
slide we’ll look at a photo and you’ll determine what he or she has. So in this photo, she has, or she’s got…
she has a cough. It’s when your throat is hurting and itches
and so you cough a lot. An example sentence, I can’t stop coughing,
I think I’ll take some medicine. She has a something. It’s when your head hurts. She has a headache. She has a headache. You can also have an earache, a stomachache,
and a toothache. Notice that in these words the stress is on
the first syllable. Earache, stomachache, toothache. She hasn’t eaten anything all day and now
she has a headache. I get a headache if I don’t eat anything all
day. Alright, what is in this photo? I’m not sure if you can tell what it is, but
it’s typically red and itchy. You can get it if you come in contact with
poison ivy. Sometimes if you have an allergy or a lot
of stress, people can get one of these. She has a rash. A rash. An example sentence, My rash is so itch! I can’t stop scratching. I need to buy some cream. Alright, this poor little boy has got….he’s
got a temperature. You may have been thinking fever and that’s
also correct. He also has a fever. Um, so he has a temperature. Notice that temperature has three syllables. Temp-ra-ture. An example sentence, when I checked the thermometer
he had a very high temperature. The thermometer is the thing you use to measure
someone’s temperature. This item here in the photo. She has, what does she have? I hate getting these. I have to wear sunscreen a lot because I’m
very fair skinned and if I don’t put on any sunscreen I will get a… sunburn. I will get a sunburn. For example: She forgot to put on sunscreen,
now she is very red and has the worst sunburn ever. Sunscreen is the cream you put on to protect
yourself from the sun. Alright, in this photo, what do you think
she’s about to do? She has some pain in her stomach. It looks like she has a stomachache. There are several possibilities, but in this
photo, I think she’s being sick or I think she’s vomiting. I didn’t put an actual picture of someone
vomiting because I don’t, I didn’t think you’d want to see that. The British say she’s being sick and American
English it’s more typical to say she’s vomiting. For example: I think I’m going to be sick. It must’ve been something that I ate. I think I’m going to vomit. It must’ve been something that I ate. What’s she doing? Aaaa-choo. After someone says, ‘Aaaa-choo” we say, “Bless
you.” But, what is this action called? She’s sneezing. For example: I’m so allergic to cats! Whenever I’m around then I sneeze nonstop. That’s true. I’m allergic to cats and they make me sneeze. Describe this photo. So this man, has his ankles here, and one
ankle, this part here, one ankle is different than the other. What do we call that? His ankle is swollen. And you can be swollen in other parts of your
body. If you’re stung by a bee, some people get
swollen on their arm, or if their stung on their face, their face can get swollen. Your wrist can get swollen if you break it. So, for example: His ankle is swollen, I think
he might have broken his foot. Or maybe he broke his ankle. But either way it doesn’t look good. Describe the photo. So this man is feeling pain in his back, but
what else can we call it? His backaches. Or you can say, his back hurts. So when you’re feeling pain in your back,
you say, “Oh! I have a backache.” or “Oh! My back hurts.” For example: The mattress in the hotel was
too soft, now my back hurts. The mattress is the part of the bed that you
sleep on top of. The part that you lay on. Describe this photo. I’m hoping this photo isn’t too graphic. I tried to find one where this wasn’t happening
too much. When you look on the internet, you find all
kinds of things. Her finger is bleeding. When there’s blood, and it continues coming
out, it’s bleeding. Her finger is bleeding. For example: I cut my finger while chopping
vegetables and now it’s bleeding. Get me a Band-Aid, quick! You’ve got to stop that bleeding. Next section you will determine the illness
by reading the symptoms. So, this gentleman here, he has a temperature
and aches all over. What might he have? If he has a temperature and aches all over. He has the flu. I hate getting the flu. I don’t think anyone likes getting the flu. He has the flu. This man, it hurts, when he talks, or swallows
his food. This part here is hurting. And if he talks, or swallows, it hurts. He has a sore throat. He has a sore throat. Next situation, it’s so hot in the room that
she’s lost consciousness. What’s that action called? When someone loses consciousness? She’s fainted. She’s fainted. He’s been in the toilet five times this morning. He can’t stop using the bathroom. What might he have? He definitely has a stomachache and in this
scenario, he’s not going to the bathroom to vomit. He’s doing something else in the bathroom. That’s not pleasant. He has diarrhea. He has diarrhea. Next situation, he feels like he’s going to
vomit. So he feels like he’s going to vomit. We did this one in a previous slide. It’s a review. He feels sick. He feels sick. So I can say, “Oh, I feel sick,” and it means
I feel like I may vomit. She’s sneezing a lot and has a cough. She’s sneezing a lot and has a cough. A lot of people get these in the winter. She has a cold. She has a cold. And don’t forget this is she has a cold. If it’s her body temperature, if she feels
cold, then she is cold. So there’s a difference between she is cold
and she has a cold. She has a cold means she’s ill. She feels that everything is spinning around. She feels that everything is spinning around. She feels dizzy. I can’t go on rides that spin in circles really
fast because then I get dizzy and I feel really sick. He’s bleeding. What might have happened to this little boy? One possibility is that he’s cut himself. He’s cut himself. There are many other possibilities but for
this example he’s cut himself. She’s spilt some boiling water on herself. That is a face of pain. She’s spilt some boiling water on herself. She’s burnt herself. He fell badly and now his ankle is swollen. He fell badly and now his ankle is swollen. He’s twisted his ankle. That’s most likely what happened. He’s twisted his ankle while walking. It’s 18 over 14, or 180 over 140. He has high blood pressure. He has high blood pressure. If his blood pressure were low, then he’d
have low blood pressure. He ate some prawns that were bad, this is
the worst. When you go to a restaurant and eat something
that’s bad, that night you feel so sick. He got food poisoning. Food poisoning is when you eat food that’s
bad and you get sick. He was eating a steak and a piece of it got
stuck in his throat. it’s stuck in his throat and he can’t breathe. He’s choking. He’s choking, he can’t breathe and he has
to get the Heimlich maneuver to get it out. He was stung by a wasp and now he has a rash
and has difficulty breathing. His face might possibly be swollen. This is common in a lot of people. He’s had an allergic reaction. He’s allergic to the wasp, now he has a rash
and he can’t breathe. Stay tuned for next class we will move forward
