C 容易弄错的美语 下面一些用语或口语,在字眼上,颇有相似之处,但在意义和用法上,却有不同。使用时要 特别小心,以免出错。 son of a gun 与 son of a bitch: son of a gun 是对好友表示一种惊讶的口语(an interjection or an exclamation of surprise between very good friends) ,有点像「坏蛋」「家伙」的味道。 、 但 son of a bitch(或 SOB)是美国人极为严重的骂人话(curse word) ,千万不可乱用, 以免闹事。因为这不但意味这位 son 没有确定的父亲,同时母亲也是缺乏道德和贞操(less virtuous) 例如: 。 * I have not seen you for a long time;you (are)son of a gun! (你这坏蛋啊,我好 久不见你了! ) * After the two men called each other“son of a bitch” (SOB),they started a fight. (这两位男子互骂 SOB 後,就动起武来。 ) 至於 son of a gun 的来由,据说从前女人可以住在海军船上服务。结果一位女人生下孩子 时, 不知父亲是谁, 於是船上的人, 「gun」 就以 做为孩子的 paternity, 孩子也就被称为 「son of a gun」 。虽然只用在好友中,但有时也真有坏蛋的意思(evil person or a rogue)所以 不是恭维语(complimentary word) ,除非真正好友,少用为妙。 at large 与 by and large: at large 当形容词, 最常用的意思是指嫌犯脱逃, 逍遥法外 (escape,referring to criminal before arrest)而 by and large 当副词用,意思是一般而言(generally speaking on the whole) 例如: 。 * The murder suspect is still at large. (凶手仍然逍遥法外) * By and large, I feel(that)the new proposal is sensible.(大体来说,我认为新的 建议是很切合实际的。 ) * By and large, most people will care about their weight. (一般而言,许多人关心 他们的体重) 然而,有时 at large 也有「一般」 (in general)的意思。 例如: * The Chinese people at large are peace-loving. (一般中国人是爱好和平的) Here you go 与 Here you go again: Here you go 是指给别人东西时说: 「这就是你要的」 (=Here is what you want) ;有时也表 示同意对方的意见(= you are right) ;有时又与 there you go 互用。 * The cashier said, “Here you go! ”when she gave me the change. (当收款员找我零 钱时,她说: 「这就是!) 」 但是 Here you(或 we)go again 意思是「你又旧事重提了」 ,表示对一件事情多次重复的 厌烦。 (feel annoyed when something is repeated over and over again) 。例如:
* When he brought up the same issue to me, I said, “Here you go again!(当他向 ” 我提出同样的问题时,我说: 「又是老话题了!) 至於“Here goes”又是指说话者开始做某 」 事时说: 「开始了」 。例如: *“Here goes! shouted the racer as he started running.(当赛跑者开始跑步时,喊 ”, 著「我就开始了!) 」 to marry (someone)与 to be married to(someone) marry 当做及物动词时,多用主 : 动语态(active voice) 例如: 。 * She married a man ten years younger(或 older). (她嫁给一位比她小或大十岁的男 人) = She married a man ten years her junior(或 senior). 但是 marry 用在被动语态时(passive voice) ,後面要用介系词 to。 例如: * She is(was)married to a man ten years younger(older). = She is (was)married to a man ten years her junior(senior).(假如用 is,指目 前还是夫妻,如用 was,可能已经不是夫妻了) 然而,在 married 後面用介系词 by 时,又有「牧师证婚」的意思。 例如: * She was married by a man ten years younger. (是指为她证婚的牧师,比她小十岁。) * She was married by my father.(为他证婚的牧师是我老爸。 )(因为牧师证婚已成过去, 所以要用过去式 was。 ) near 与 near by: near 是介系词(preposition)通常後面跟受词(object) ,但是 near by(或 nearby)当 形容词(adjective)意思是指「附近」 (=close),只指某一地方(somewhere) ,没有特定地 点(no specific location) 例如: 。 * The school is near the railway station. (学校在火车站附近。 ) * The post office and library are near by. (邮局和图书馆都在附近。 ) 可见 near by(或 nearby)通常後面不加受词,不然就显得 awkward 了。所以很少人说: * I ate at a near restaurant. 不过可以说: * I ate at a nearby restaurant.; 或 * The restaurant where I ate is nearby.(不过也有老外用 near) school is open 与 the school is open: school is open (或 schools are open) 是指「学校开学」(classes are in session),这 里的 open 是形容词,school 前面不加冠词 the,意味整个中小学的 school system。但是 the school is open,多指学校的建筑物开放著,但没有学生上课。 同理:He goes to school. 是指他去上学读书受教育,而 He goes to the school. 又指他 去学校的建筑物(看朋友、参观等) 。 至於 School is closed.(或 Schools are closed.) 是指「学校停课」 ,前面也不加 the。
注意:close 当形容词时,也有「附近」(nearby) 或「友善」(friendly) 的意思。 例如: * The school is close(=nearby).(学校在附近。 ) * That is a close neighborhood.(那是一个友善的住宅区) ,而 The school is opened at 8 a.m.; 或 * The school is closed at 5 p.m.(都是指学校的建筑物开放或关闭的时间。 ) 但是 The store is open. 是指店铺在营业中(= Business is going on.) ,而 The store is closed. 又是指店铺暂时不营业。 假如店铺是永久性的「关门大吉」 ,就应该说: * The store was closed down. (permanently) 不过 closed 当形容词时,又有「保守」 (conservative)或受某种「限制」 (restricted) 的意思。 例如: * This is a closed community.(这是一个保守的社区。(由於宗教信仰等原因,美国有的 ) 社区不欢迎外来的人。 ) D 美国人的口头禅
  9. It is a shame! 这是一句可以用在许多适当情况的口语 (Catch-all phrase),是表示一种轻度的「遗憾」或 「同情」(a form of sympathy or regret) 但没有「羞耻」的意思。例如: It is a shame that your car got stuck in the snow.(你的汽车陷在雪里,真糟糕。 ) When I said, "I lost ten dollars from my pocket.",he replied, "It is a shame!"(当 我说: 「我从口袋里掉了十块钱」 ,他回答: 「真遗憾?」) 至於 "What a shame",其实与 "it is a shame" 意思相似,也有 "It is too bad" 的味道。 例如: What a shame that his son's behavior is so rude.(他儿子的粗鲁行为是令人遗憾的)
  10. May it ever be thus! 意思是:希望保持现在的情况,不会改变。(I hope it will not change; may the situation always remain the same.),通常用在喜庆时,也有祝你与现在一样的健康快乐之意。(I hope you are always as healthy and happy as now.) 例如: We are wonderful friends; may it ever be thus!(我们是好友,愿永远如此! ) He said to the newly weds, "May it ever be thus!"(他对新婚夫妇说: 「愿你们永远这 样的恩爱、幸福」 )
  11. Am I being petty? 意思是: 「我是气量小吗?」或「我是心胸狭窄吗?」(narrow-minded) 这是一个人做了或说 了某件事情後,唯恐别人批评或指责而自加「反省」的表态。 (或表示谦虚) 这里用 verb to be 的现在进行式,表示气量小或心胸窄是「暂时性」的。而 Am I petty? 又
是指 「经常性」 (但是谁又愿意承认自己是经常的气量小, 的。 心胸窄呢! 所以为了 「自尊心」 , 通常不说"I am petty",只说"I am being petty." 同理: Am I being over-reactive?(或 over sensitive?)(我是反应过火或过份敏感吗?) Are you being in bad mood?(你情绪不好吗?)都是强调「暂时性」 。否则就不必使用现在 进行式 (being) (主词可用任何人称代名词 you, we, he, she, they 等,动词可用任何时态。 )
  12. Stay tuned! 这多半是指播音员在收音机或电视上所说的。 意思是: 「稍等一下, 下面还有」 (Stay where you are in the same channel),但也可以表示对一件事情的继续讨论 (to keep continuing the same issue)
