Everything under the sun

Hello everyone!

こんにちは!

Since the weather is slowly becoming warmer, we have a sun-related phrase for you today.

最近はすごく暑いので、太陽に関するフレーズです!

 

"Everything under the sun" is another way of saying everything, or many different things.

「Everything under the sun」は、全部や、様々なこと、という意味です。

 

 

For example:

例)

When you reconnect with an old friend and you spent hours talking about various things, then you can say:

久しぶりに友達と会い、色々な話をして、何時間も喋っていたように感じることを言います:

 

"We talked about everything under the sun."

色々なことについて話しました。

 

 

This is also typically used when people have thought of every possible solution to something but it still doesn't work.

やれることは全て試したのに解決せず、何も変わらなかった場合にも使います。

 

For example:

例)

If a babysitter has done everything they could think of to get the baby to stop crying, but the baby keeps crying, they will most likely say this:

ベビーシッターは泣いている赤ちゃんを落ち着かせるために色々なことをしたのに、泣きやまない場合、このように言います。

 

"I've tried everything under the sun! Why won't she stop crying?"

やれることは全部したのに! なんで泣きやまないの?

 

 

Why don't you try using "everything under the sun" in a conversation?
