At a restaurant
Man: Well, I think I would make a very good waiter.
Manager: Would you, now? We’ll see about that. Very well, I’ll try you out.
Man: You’ll try me out?
Manager: Yes, I’ll give you a try out, a test, to see if you’d make a good waiter.
Man: How do you do this tryout, this test?
I’ll give you a try out, a test, ← original text
Which is grammatically correct:
- I’ll give you a try out
- I’ll give you a tryout
I prefer tryout. You can also omit the word out.
I’ll give you a tryout.
I’ll give you a try.
I’ll give you a try out. ← I don’t know if this is wrong grammatically, but this structure is a little awkward in my opinion.
Thank you so much, NearlyNapping
As a noun, it should be a single word like tryout or try-out. Otherwise, it may mean a phrasal verb ‘to try (something) out’.
