[英文][生活]英语日常口语、习惯语1500句(高级) Z
本帖最后由 dimo 于 2010-2-2 18:09 编辑

1. Hold on 等一下 (口语中,人们不太用wait a minute)如果两人辩论,吵架,抬杠,你要别人“打住”,可以说,hold it right there.
  2. I hate his guts. 我最讨厌他。也有说I hate him guts. Guts 是肠子,相当于“恨之入骨”的意思。He doesn’t have much guts. 他是个胆小鬼。 ut feeling 直觉
  3. Nuts, 果仁,核,为复数时,意为“疯子”,He is nuts。他有神经病。He went nuts and killed a guy.他发疯了,结果杀了一个人。You are driving me nuts. 你真是要把我逼疯。a tough nut to crack, 一项艰巨的任务,一个难解之题
  4. How is everything? (还好吗?) I am just stuck in a rut, doing the same things every day. I wish I could do something different. (烦死了,每天都是干同样的活,我真想换个活法。) rut 日常的,每天都如此,get in a rut,日复一日,天天如此
  5. I have totally sold out to your idea. 我100%地赞同赞同你的意见。类似的话还有If you are not careful enough, you will buy into his bad idea. 如果你不小心的话,你就会采纳他的这馊主意。
  6. I am just ecstatic about going to visit you soon. 马上要见你,我高兴死了。
  7. A dap and dip 打个照面,露下脸就走。
  Matt: Are we going to Jon’s party?我们去琼的聚会吗?
  Darryl: Yeah, but I don’t want to stay long, so let’s make it a dap and dip.那就去吧,不过我可不想多呆,顶多就打个照面就走人。
  8. I would like to get a job within couching distance. 我想找个不用走路就可以上班的工作。Couching distance,沙发距离,就是坐在沙发上不起身也能够得着。这是那种 couch potato喜欢做的美梦。
  9. Yukky 难吃,说这个词时还要做一个难吃的表情。Where did you get this food? It was yukky. 你从哪里弄了这吃的?那么难吃。
  10. 与yukky相反的词是yummy,好吃极了。说这个词时,要不然就把音拖一下,要不然说它两次,表示你真的喜欢主人做的这道菜。
11 I cannot take it any more. 我再也无法忍受了。前面还可以加上一句:don’t push me. 不要再逼我呀。 同样意思的句子还有:I cannot stand him any longer.
  12 Don’t take it out on me! 不要把气出在我身上。
  13 You have my word. 我向你保证(是这样)。
  14 Look, I have got going. 就这样了,我还得干活呢(还得赶路)。这是向人告辞的说法。
  15 You talk crazy. 你满嘴胡言。相当于you talk nonsense之意。 从语法上看,将形容词放在动词后不是很正规,但人家都这么说,也就可以将就了。
  16 I don’t mean to cross the line. 直译是“我不想越界”。这句话的意思是,我并不是想管闲事呀,只是随便问问。“I don’t mean to cross the line, is she your new girl friend ?”
  17 Thank you for .....(the tea, and so on), and everything else. 谢谢你的(茶水款待),以及一切。当你向人道谢时,你一下只想起了一件具体的事,但又接受了不止一项的好处,就加上一句 and everything else,这样就不会漏谢什么了。
  18 I won’t take that crap.我才不会信那套鬼话。也可以说:I won’t buy that beef.同样的意思。
  19 Calm down. 不要激动好不好?
  20 sick 恶心 you make me sick. 你叫我恶心。 People do sick things to young girls nowadays. 现在总有人对小女孩做那些恶心的事。 He is sick. 如果你把sick一词念得很重,意思就是“他令人恶心。”如果念得不重,意思就只是“他病了。” 所以要小心。

  23 I know he has the blues(He is feeling very down!), but it doesn’t mean he can vent his anger on me. 我知道他心情不好,但他也不能把气发在我身上呀。the blues 心情不好,If a girl is sad, an ice-cream cone can normally chase the blues away. 如果女孩心情不好的话,给她一个冰淇淋,她就会转哭为笑了。也可说,an ice-cream cone can normally help shake off the blues.

[英文][生活]英语日常口语、习惯语1500句(高级) Z
31 我们赞扬儿童时最常用的话有:Isn’t he cute He is so cute. He is adorable. Beautiful baby! 逗一两岁的小孩时,人们常说:Peek-a-boo, I see you.给小孩说再见:See you later, alligator!
  32 Yes, 这是现在的小学生都会的单词。但是大学英语专业的人有时也搞错,例如,对于对方的否定句表示赞同时,很多时候,很多人仍旧会回答yes,而不会说no。英语中表示同意的词很多,如果实在无法立马反应过来,不妨用其他的词。Absolutely, OK, you are right, exactly, certainly, yep, aye, just so, sure, right, correct, you said it. I agree with you, 常用的还有sweat, you bet。或者你可以说:I hear you.你说的我明白。说no的词也有好几个:nope, I don’t think so,等等。
  33 有个人说:A 82 year-old man married a 28 year-old woman. That is the most bizarre thing that has ever happened recently. (一个82岁的老头娶了28岁的姑娘,这是近来最为离奇的事。)另一个人蛮有同情心,他可能会说:Well, age shouldn’t be something that comes in the way of a person’s marriage. As long as they love each other, age is not an issue.(嗯,年龄在婚姻中应该不是障碍,重要的是他们爱着对方,年龄不是问题。)bizarre是一个美国人喜欢用的词,意思是“稀奇古怪,不正常的”;That is a bizarre story.(这个故事太荒唐。) The nine-head-bird is really bizarre.(九头鸟是不可能有的事。)这是一句中国俗话,上、下联是什么呢? comes in the way of 的意思是“成为绊脚石”。
  34 有个朋友要我每到一地就给她写几个字,这英语的表达法可以用“drop me a line”: Don’t forget to drop me a line when you visit a new place. 我则可以回答:“Trust me. I won’t. I’ll keep you posted.”(没问题,我不会忘记的,我会随时让你知道我的近况。)post当动词用,则是“邮寄,转递”,keep someone posted意思是keep in touch with someone, or touch base with someone often。只是很可惜,现在的中国邮局大部分都不办理邮政业务,而是成为银行了,所以信也没法寄。Drop by的意思是,顺便访问(没有计划的那种访问。)Please drop by sometime for a drink. - I dropped by my best friend’s house to see if he was home. 不要朋友写信,就叫朋友打电话好了:Give me a buzz. or Give me a ring. 都可以。
  35 上一篇中提到了一个词soul mate,是那种心灵感应的朋友,也可以用heart,例如说,sweat heart,但这指恋人或关系特别密切的人。a heart to heart chat很诚恳的沟通。I tried to have a heart to heart chat with him on this issue, but it didn’t work. 我费了一番力气想与他坦诚沟通,但没有什么用。
  36 他喝醉了。英文有好些说法,很口语化的是:He is loaded. 就是drunk的意思。"When I talked to the president, he was loaded." Kissinger said about Nixon. 基辛格谈到尼克松时说:“我跟总统谈话时,他已经喝得烂醉。”under the influence of alcohol也是喝醉了的意思,但这是个法律词汇,意思是犯法了,尤其是在开车时,如果查出了司机是under the influence of alcohol则可能要坐牢。而drunk, loaded虽是醉酒,但不违法。很书面语的词汇是“intoxicated, intoxication”。写到这里,我想起了昆明巫家坝机场的一副广告:令人陶醉的地方--云南(大意),旁边的英语是:Intoxication: Yunnan. 这是典型的中式英语,外国人看了不知所云,听上去好像是云南人都是酒鬼一样。正确的英文应该是:The most attractive place: Yunnan;也可以说:Breathtaking scenery:Yunnan.
  37 He is a little bit punchy. 如果一个人晚上睡眠不足,早晨起来睡眼惺忪的样子,我们可以说他punchy.所以可以接着说:He needs a cup of coffee to wake up. 一个人看上去云里雾里的样子都是punchy,与喝醉酒貌差不多。
  38 与load还有一个相关的口语词:freeloading, 揩油,滥用别人的慷慨。My roommate won’t pay anything for the grocery. I end up feeding him three meals. I am really fed up with his freeloading.(他这样揩我的油我实在是受不了。)揩油的人就叫“freeloader”,就是那种喜欢免费的午餐的人(those who enjoy free lunch)。
  39 市场上有很多关于学英语诀窍的书,但实际上,学英语就是一个背单词、与遗忘作斗争的过程。记忆力好的人总是少数。I cannot think of these English words off hand. One of the effective ways is to brush up on grammar rules a little bit everyday. There is simply no short cut. Off hand,我无法一下子就能想起这些英文单词。 Brush up on 常常复习,short cut,捷径。学英语最好是每天学一点,坚持不懈,集腋成裘:“Precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, idea by idea,”(一次学个概念,这里学一点,那里学一点,一次接触一个思想)。或者我们可以说 A little at a time, we can eat up an elephant eventually.(一次吃一口,我们最终可以把头大象给吞了。) It is a big job, but we can get it done. 这个工作巨大,但我们可以把它做好。所以不要相信那些100天就可以把英语学好的广告。如果有学生或一位网友100天可以学好英语的话,那我不就要失业了?
40 堵塞。看到“堵塞”二字,人们一般会想起“jam”,如果是交通堵塞,用jam是没错的。但是如果是下水道给堵塞了,最好要用clog。It is too bad, my sink is clogged up again.“堵塞”还有一个英文词“clot”: The street was clotted with traffic. 街上交通阻塞。血栓堵塞:blood clot。“堵塞”正式的名词是Congestion, 如果吃东西给咽了,则是choking (food clogging in the throat.)

  99. It may be a cock-and-bull story. Cock-and-bull 没有书对的事。He is good at telling cock-and-bull stories. 他最会胡编乱讲。

[英文][生活]英语日常口语、习惯语1500句(高级) Z
101. I have a fire in my belly to do something for this village. 我有一股强烈的愿望,能为这个村庄做点什么。特别注意,这个成语与“一肚子火”没有关系,是表示有一种正面的强烈愿望。
  I love this desire which comes from a fire in my belly.
  一首歌的歌词:Fire in my heart, fire in my belly too Got a heart and a mind and a fire inside And I’m crazy about you You, you on your high flying cloud You, you when you’re laughing out loud.
  Have a yen for也是口语,同样表示“I have a desire for”: I have a yen for a thick juicy steak. He has a yen for this girl.
  102.Digital cameras are cheap now, you can get one for peanuts. 最便宜的东西莫过于花生,用买花生的钱就能买的东西,那当然是很便宜了。以前美国南部产棉花,但棉花对土地有结板块的作用。后来农民发现棉花收割后种花生对土地有帮助,于是开始种花生。那时花生不过像杂草一样,农民任其烂在田里。直到发明了花生酱后,花生才渐渐地成为人们喜欢的食物。
  103.Blow out 与 blow away

  I am blown out to find out that she would not come.

  I have some rough patches with my wife. 我有好些地方得与老婆去磨合磨合了。
  108.I am here now, I need to get in a swing of it. 我已经到了,该投入行动了。
  109.More brawn than brain 四肢发达,头脑简单 Nowadays, pop-culture icons are more brawn than brain. 现在流行文化中的偶像都是些四肢发达,头脑简单的家伙。
