hang is a simple word. but there are many meanings for hang. especially when it is used with other words. two often-heard expressions are to hang tight and to hang loose.

when a friend says to hang tight, he is advising you to wait a little longer, not to give up. he might say, for example, "hang tight. keep studying. you can still pass the course."

but if that same friend tells you to hang loose, he is telling you to take it easy, not to get excited. he could say, "hang loose. you probably passed the english test."

hang around is an expression with several meanings. usually, it means to spend your time doing nothing. you may need time to just hang around if you have been working too hard. hang around also can mean spending time with friends. you hang around with your friends, for example, because you share a common interest in sports.

hanging out is similar to hanging around. you may hang out with the same group of friends and always do things together.

a similar-sounding expression, however, has a very different meaning. the expression is let it all hang out. well, when you let it all hang out, you are being completely open and honest. you do not keep your opinions hidden, even if they may cause you trouble.
