"This has been sorted out "という表現をちょくちょく聞くので、知らなかったこの表現。と思ってたらBritish Englishだった。略してsorted と一語でも言うようで、America人はこの表現しないみたい。

Oxford Dictionaryより転載


British informal
  • organized, arranged, or dealt with satisfactorily: ‘And your social commitments?’ ‘They’re well sorted’ he’s working on that old car he’s been trying to get sorted
  • (of a person) confident, organized, and emotionally well balanced: after a while, you realize they’re not as sorted as they seem a pretty sorted kind of bloke
  • (of a person) prepared for or provided with something (especially illegal drugs): Are you sorted? This is good stuff—it’ll keep you going all night
