Rachel’s English / ENGLISH VOCABULARY | Fine-tooth Comb #SHORTS
A comb. A fine-tooth comb. Have you ever heard an idiom “to go over something with a fine-tooth comb”?
So this is a comb,
This is a pick,
This is a brush.
Notice here, these are so close together.
If you go over something with a fine-tooth comb,
that means you look at all of the details
to make sure they are perfect.
I used it like this: I’m working with a video editor.
He made some edits and I wasn’t sure,
should I just give him the big obvious things to change first?
Or should I tell him every little detail to change?
Should I go over that video with a fine-tooth comb?
