Ajarn Ken can you tell me the meaning of the English Idiom Hard Up. It means to have little or no money, right?
Alain from France
I really love English idioms!
The idiom "hard up" means having very little money.
For example, we can say, "I can't let you have any money this week: I'm very hard up."
or another example, "We were so hard up we couldn't even buy a newspaper."
