now, words and their stories - a voa special english program about american expressions. i'm rich kleinfeldt with some expressions containing the word "hit."

(music)

hit is a small word but it has a lot of power. baseball players hit the ball. missiles hit an airplane. a car hits a tree.

hit also joins with other words to create many colorful expressions. one is hit the road. it means to travel or to leave a place, as suggested in this song, "hit the road."

(music)

another common expression is hit the spot. at first it meant hitting a spot at the center of a target with an arrow. someone who did so was satisfied with his shooting. now, hitting the spot usually means that a food or drink is especially satisfying.

many years ago, pepsi cola sold its drink with a song that began, "pepsi cola hits the spot, twelve full ounces, that's a lot..."

another expression involving hit is hit bottom. something that has hit bottom can go no lower. if the price of shares of a stock hits bottom that might be the time to buy it. its value can only go up.

a student who tells you his grades have hit bottom is saying he has not done well in school.
