Note:

Pipe down and don’t disturb me (not, pipe low). Pipe down is used to say that one should stop talking and be quiet. It’s originally a naval expression.

We need one and a half hours more (not, hour). Plural doesn’t mean two; it’s anything more than one.

She frowns (not, She frowns her face) What other part of her body could she have frowned?

I saw him myself (not, I saw him with my two eyes or my two naked eyes).
