מה זה to eat up?
באנגלית, to eat something up פירושו לאכול אותו לגמרי, בלי להותיר שאריות.
דוגמה: - Could I have a slice of the cake? -No, sorry. We've eaten it up at the birthday party (- אפשר לקבל חתיכה מהעוגה? - לצערי לא, אכלנו אותה לגמרי במסיבת יום ההולדת).
אפשר להשתמש בפועל זה גם במשמעות מושאלת: קבלת מחמאות או חנופה בהתלהבות מוגזמת, או קבלת ידיעה באמון מלא, בלי פקפוק.
דוגמה: Many times, actors will eat up good publicity and start to believe that they have no flaws at all.
