Good question! A "pep talk" is encouraging words you give to another person, usually to motivate them about something specific they are going through or going to do, or just about their life in general. Ex: You are our best player, I know you can help our team win the game! Ex: Good luck on your job interview tomorrow, you've practiced very hard for it so I know you'll do well.
