자막

John:
Have you decided yet if you will adopt a dog soon?

Lia:
Well, that is TBD. We still have some things to figure out first.

John:
Good luck! I know you’ve been wanting to get a dog.

Lia:
Thanks. We’ll see what happens.

Lia:
As you heard from the conversation, TBD is a common abbreviation in English. Instead of saying all the words, we say or write just the letters to keep it short. TBD can mean different things, but the letters most commonly stand for “to be determined.” Just like the words mean, TBD means that something has not yet been decided but may be decided soon. You’ll hear it used in conversation, and it’s also used in casual writing.
