    What's the pitch?

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether there is a difference between the meanings of the following four sentences?

    1. What’s the matter?

    2. What’s the pitch?

    3. What’s the trouble?

    4. What’s up?

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: What's the pitch?

    To "make a pitch" = make an attempt at or bid for something. You make a pitch for a new contract.

    The other phrases are interchangeable.

    Hi Anglika,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me the presence of the expression in question “What’s the pitch?” = “Was ist los?” = “What’s the trouble?” = “What’s the matter?” in the LEO Dictionary?

    LEO Results for "What s the pitch?"

    Regards,

    You have to look at the German side of this to get your answer. What are all the possible definitions for "los"?
