美国习惯用语-第57讲:lemon and going bananasgoing bananas 大多数人都很喜欢吃水果。即便那些不怎么热衷于水果的人,他们恐怕也不太会否认水果颜色鲜艳,形状多样,看起来也怪可爱的。一些和水果有关的美国成语和俗语也都具有肯定的含义。但是,这倒也并不是千篇一律,也有一些由水果组成的习惯用语表达的是反面的意思。今天我们要给大家介绍两个这样的俗语。第一个我们要讲的是:lemon。 Lemon 就是柠檬。柠檬是非常酸的一种水果,大概没有其他东西比它更酸的了。但是,lemon 作为一个俗语它的意思就成了那种质量很坏的东西,不能起它应有的作用。美国人经常把一辆不断出问题的汽车称为 lemon。 下面就是一个例子: 例句-1: "Mr. Lee paid ,000 for his new car. But he got a real lemon: it's never run right and it spends more time in the garage getting fixed than it does on the road." 这个人说:“李先生花了一万五千块美金买了这辆新车。可是,这辆车却是毛病百出。这车从来也没有好好地跑过,它在车行里修的时间比它在马路上跑的时间还多。” Lemon 这个俗语也不局限于坏的汽车,它还可以指其他那些不理想的东西,下面这个人的经验就是一例: 例句-2: "Mister Green usually gives me good advice. But the computer company stock he told me to buy was a lemon. I had to sell it at the price I have paid for it and lost a thousand dollars." 这是说:“一般来说,格林先生给我提供的建议都是很好的。可是这次他让我买那个电脑公司的股票却是个馊主意。我不得不按原价抛出,结果损失了一千美元。” 下面我们要讲的一个俗语是:going banana。对我们大多数人来说,香蕉是很好吃的,又香又甜,营养很丰富。可是,going banana 的意思是:快要发疯了。究竟为什么要把香蕉说的这么糟糕,这实在很难解释。然而,这个俗语在美国那些家里有青少年的家长当中是十分普遍的。你听听下面这位父亲,他在说他那十四岁的女儿: 例句-3: "Mary spends all her time listening to loud music, talking on the phone, or looking at herself in the mirror instead of studying or helping us around the house. I tell you, that kid is driving us all bananas!" 这位父亲说:“玛丽把她所有的时间都用在听音乐,还得把音量放得大大的,或者是打电话,或者照镜子,而不是把时间用在学习上或帮助我们做点家务。我告诉你,那个孩子真是快要把我们逼疯了。” 家里有十几岁孩子的听众恐怕在这方面也有同感,即便情况有所差别。下面我们要举的例子也是很普遍的: 例句-4: I'm going bananas over the noise in the apartment next door. They play their television loud enough for the whole building to hear. And they never turn it off until one o'clock in the morning!" 这个人抱怨说:“隔壁人家的闹声真快把我逼疯了。他们把电视机开得那末响,整个楼都听见了。而且,不到半夜一点他们从来不关电视机。” 以上我们讲了两个和水果有关的俗语,它们是:lemon and going bananas。 Lemon 是指那些原来在想象中很好,但是结果却非常不好的东西或事情。例如毛病百出的汽车,亏本的股票等。 Going bananas 的意思是一些令人不愉快的事把人弄的十分烦燥,好像快发疯似的。 /200601/3012。

  • VOA流行美语 34: NERD / CHEESYMichael和李华白天上了好几门课,晚饭后又做功课。李华决定到Michael 的住处去休息一下,看一会电视。今天Michael 会教李华两个常用语:nerd 和cheesy。M: Are you okay, Li Hua? What's wrong? Why are you crying?L: 我没事。这个电视剧让人挺伤心的。我一看这种电视剧就会哭,真是 没办法。M: You are such a nerd.L: 你叫我什么?A nerd? 我知道那不是什么好话,可是nerd到底是什 么意思呢?M: If you call someone a nerd, it means you think he is weird and not cool. It can be used in many different situations.L: 噢,nerd是指那种跟一般人不一样,有点怪的人。Nerd可以用在 许多不同场合。那象你今天穿了这套衣,怪怪的,我就可以 说:You're a nerd。 对不对?M: Me? A nerd? Well, yes, you could call me a nerd.L: 我肯定好多人都叫你a nerd。M: As a matter of fact, when I was growing up, a lot of kids called me a nerd because I didn't fit in.L: 你小的时候不合群,所以许多人都叫你nerd。我看你现在很合 群嘛。看不出你小时候是个nerd。你到底是怎么个不合群呢?M: Well, as you know I was never very good at sports, and I never knew how to fit in with the cool kids.L: 对,你好象告诉过我你从小就不太喜欢体育,跟那些很受欢迎的 同学也合不到一起。所以,你就成了一个nerd。M: A typical nerd is someone who wears glasses and carries a lot of books.L: 噢,那就是书呆子的形象,戴着眼镜,拿着许多书。M: That's right. If someone is always studying, or seems to know the answers to everything, you can call him a nerd.L: 老念书,什么都知道的人,那不就是书呆子吗?Michael,我看你 有的时候穿衣有点怪,也许人家会叫你nerd,可是你绝对不会 成为书呆子。M: I guess so! Li Hua, That TV show is so cheesy. I don't know why it's so popular.L: 这个电视剧好多人都喜欢,包括我在内 。可你又在说什么批评的 话, 我不知道cheesy是什么意思,但是我知道你在说它不好。M: Cheesy means tacky or dumb. It's usually used to describe a TV show, movie, or something someone says.L: 噢,cheesy就是很俗气,质量很次,很愚蠢。人们经常用cheesy 这个词来形容电视节目,电影或者某个人说的话。M: I think the new TV soap opera on Channel 6 is so cheesy. It is fake and the things they say on the shows are so weird. I don't know why these shows are so popular.L: 对,我也看了六频道那个新的电视连续剧。情节是很虚假,对话 也很怪。可是你想知道为什么那么多人喜欢看吗?我来告诉你。看这 种电视剧总想知道结局嘛。我有的时候还会流泪的呢。M: How can those cheesy TV shows make you cry? You're such a nerd.L: 什么? 你说我是个nerd?M: Don't be mad, Li Hua. But you are a nerd. No one cries while watching these cheesy TV shows!L: 我才不信呢。你们这些不流眼泪的人缺乏感情,你们才是nerd。 我不 跟你说了,我要回去了。M: No, no, Li Hua. Wait, at least you have to finish watching this cheesy TV show so that you know who's going to marry whom.L: 对了,不看完这个电视剧,不知道结局,我也睡不着。那就看 吧!看来今天李华真是生气了,因为Michael说她是个nerd, 也就是说她这个人有点怪。后来她同意继续在Michael 家看完那个很cheesy的电视节目。Cheesy 就是很俗气, 没有水平的意思。这次[流行美语]就学习到这里。我们下次再见。 /200602/3109。
