Really?? You are so bad! 真的吗?你真棒!! 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 后,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,就以「gun」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),后面要用介系词 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 后面用介系词 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)通常后面跟受词(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)通常后面不加受词,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.) 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后,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」的. (但是谁又愿意承认自己是经常的气量小, 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).(tuned 是形容词,原
意是调好电台或电视)例如: Stay tuned, there will be more on this subject tomorrow.(稍等,这个问题明天再谈.) Stay tuned 的等候时间,可长可短,要看情况而定. 然而 "wait a moment" 通常是指 immediately,时间较短.例如: Stay tuned(或 wait a moment)I will be right back.(指马上回来) 但是: We have to stay tuned regarding the name change of our school.(我们必须等待校名的变更)(等待时间较 长)
  13. You can say that again! 这句话的意思是「我同意你」(I agree with you.)或「你对了」(You are right.)例如: When the professor spoke on human rights, the students responded, "You can say that again!"(当教授 谈到人权时;学生回答说:「你说得对!」) 虽然这句话的主词通常只用第二人称单数 Yo
