Can you guess the meaning of MAJOR and MINOR? It distinguishes something between serious or less serious, important or less important.
MAJOR = serious, important, great in size (major exam, major sponsor, major client, major storm)
MINOR = not serious, less important (minor headache, minor issue, minor argument)
You might think a MAJOR problem is a terrible haircut, but someone else might think that's just a MINOR problem because hair will grow back in no time. This is an idiom we use to mean very quickly/ very soon ( "Don't worry, you'll feel better in no time.")
MAJOR and MINOR can also be used in the field of education as a noun. A college MAJOR is the main subject that you study in college. It is your main focus or concentration in school. A college MINOR is another subject that you might study in college but is less intensive than your chosen MAJOR. A student could select business as a MAJOR and economics as a MINOR.
Have you ever had a MAJOR problem that other people considered as MINOR?
