My old boss used to give speaches that dragged on for over two hours. Sometimes he spoke for three hours. It is really tough to stay awake and alert when someone talks so long.

Definition: Drag on means to continue for an unnecessarily long time

Use: A person or a thing can drag on

Structure[something] or[someone] drags on

Examples:

  • Bob’s speech dragged on for two hours.
  • The labor strike has dragged on for two weeks.
  • That new movie dragged on too long.

Practice: Try to answer the questions:

  • Has something dragged on around you recently? Have you been to a meeting or a movie that dragged on? Do you know someone who drags on when they talk or give a presentation?
