Can you help me with the meaning tip-off?
We're now at the place called the Tip-Off, and it's named because this is the place where you tip off the edge into the last drop before that Colorado River.
I need to translate it and I don't now why it is called Tip-off.
I know it also means "warning" but that doesn't seem to be the case here.
Thanks a lot!
To tip something means to cause it to tumble and overturn; it is a verb.
He tipped the cup off the table = he caused the cup to tumble off the the table (onto the floor).
I think the Tip-Off is a place name derived from the verb which describes a feature of the place.
