English term or phrase: get the chopper
If anyone was going to "get the chopper"...

Italian translation:"essere silurato"
Explanation:
Suona come "get the ax", quindi "essere licenziato" ma senza contesto, al solito, come facciamo?

Se il contesto conferma la mia ipotesi, il verbo "silurare" mantiene il tono gergale.

Buon lavoro,

Floriana

Grazie per tutti gli aiuti. Erano tutte forme colloquiali (in un libro) sulle quali ero piuttosto incerta e col tuo aiuto ho avuto la conferma
