In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Boot
Today we’re going to take a look at the word boot. There are a surprising number of uses of the word boot in English. When I was in the military, many years ago, I remember always having to bull my boots. This involved polishing the toecaps so that they were as bright and shiny as black mirrors. What a waste of time! A load of bull, really. I think it put me off polishing my boots and shoes forever, and I can’t remember when I last opened a tin of shoe polish.
