#1  [原创] 每日英语一句

我每天生活和工作都要用很多英语口语,譬如和朋友,老师,同事聊天等,“每日英语一句” 将摘录一些有趣的句子,分析,对照字典,与对英语和翻译感兴趣的朋友分享。


1) She just let herself go.  她自暴自弃(语境:说一个人邋遢,不修边幅,整天不洗脸,不梳头,不打扮)

不能翻译成: 她只是让她自己走。


字典:
let oneself go



phrase of let


1.


act in an unrestrained or uninhibited way.
"you need to unwind and let yourself go"

2.

become careless or untidy in one's habits or appearance.
"he's really let himself go since my mother died"

2)Rich 有钱 与 Well off富裕 的区别。中文里,我们可以用“有钱” 去形容那些去超市买菜不看价,随便买的人,“巨有钱”形容土豪。但英语里的用法是有区别的。

Rich: 有10辆宝马,10栋豪宅,。。。的土豪被形容为 is rich. Being rich means you can burn money有钱的意思是你能烧钱。

Well off 去超市买菜不看价钱的叫富裕, 不能给自己满足以上提到的宝马,豪宅等。

(因为我们聊天的内容是天南地北,跨度,跳跃很大, 所以这个是原始笔记,没有系统归类。 以前做了很多笔记,能归类变成很厚的一本书。)


3) To  boot 的用法   它的意思是:也,而且

You help people, taking care of them, and at the same time you make money to boot.  你帮了人,照顾他们,而且同时也挣了钱。 (语境:聊工作)  



字典 http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/to+boot



in addition. For graduation, I got a new suit and a coat to boot. She got an F on her term paper and flunked the final to boot.

跟“to give somebody the boot"  不一样。

give somebody the boot  把某人炒掉; 甩了某人

1. (informal) to stop employing someone They gave him the boot for swearing at his manager. (informal)

2. (informal) to end a romantic relationship with someone She gave him the boot because he wouldn't stop talking about his ex-girlfriends.  跟某人断了,结束关系。 她把他甩了,因为他老提他的前任女友们。

5)What's Shaking? (这句口语问候经常用) 怎么样? 还好吗?

poke around 字典:
