英语口语 1. Hold on 等一下 (口语中,人们不太用wait a minute)如果两人辩说,打骂,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.他发狂了,效果杀了一小我私家。You are driving me nuts. 你真是要把我逼疯。

a tough nut to crack, 一项困难的任务,一个难明之题 4. How is everyth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,天天都是干同样的活,我真想换个活法。) rut 日常的,天天都如此,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。类似的话另有If you are not careful enough, you will buy into his bad idea. 如果你不小心的话,你就会采取他的这馊主意。  6. I am just ecstatic about going to visit you soon. 马上要见你,我兴奋死了。

  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,不外我可不想多呆,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事情。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心情。

Where did you get this food? It was yukky. 你从那里弄了这吃的?那么难吃。  10. 与yukky相反的词是yummy,好吃极了。

说这个词时,要否则就把音拖一下,要否则说它两次,表现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。同样意思的句子另有: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,也就可以迁就了。  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。

当你向人致谢时,你一下只想起了一件详细的事,但又接受了不止一项的利益,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. 不要激动好欠好?   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。21 You look concerned. What’s on your mind 你看上去有点心思沉沉,在担忧什么呢?  22 I’ve got to quiet down and get focused. 我该岑寂下来,集中注意力。

  23 I know he has the blues(He is feeling very down!), but it doesn’t mean he can vent his anger on me. 我知道他心情欠好,但他也不能把气发在我身上呀。the blues 心情欠好,If a girl is sad, an ice-cream cone can normally chase the blues away. 如果女孩心情欠好的话,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.   24 I’m up to my neck in work.这句话的意思就是I am quite busy. 我太忙了,这事情把我忙得晕头转向。

I have got a pretty tight schedule today. 我今天的日程摆设得很紧。  25 Easy! 悠着点;不要性急;轻一点;也可以说:Go easy. Go easy on it(省着点用). Easy-going, 很容易相处:She is caring and easy-going.  26 Crush 原意为“破坏”,现常指“暗恋”,又常指青涩少年的那种爱,并不稳定,例如,小女生对老师的爱恋,过一阵就烟消云散。Peter has a crush on Jenny.  27 Ask somebody out 与人约会,谈恋爱:He doesn’t have the guts to ask her out because he is afraid she will turn him down. 他不敢告诉她他爱她,因为他生怕会遭到她的拒绝。

类似的有go out with somebody: I heard you’re going out with Jane. 我听说了你在与Jane谈恋爱。28 Mr. Right: 白马王子,He’s gentle, patient, successful, and MATURE. I think He’s my Mr. Right! 他温柔体贴,有耐心,乐成又成熟。

我知道他就是我的意中人(我未来的丈夫非他莫属;也可以说是真命天子)。(白马王子的另一个说法:prince charming)  29 Jack 对朋侪John说,他刚刚与Esther拜拜了,(I just broke up with Esther.)John 慰藉Jack说, I don’t know what to say to comfort you, but cheer up! There’s plenty of fish in the sea and you’ll find your soul mate, your perfect match!  30 My relationship with her is already a history.我与她的关系早已成历史了。

  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市的单词。可是大学英语专业的人有时也搞错,例如,对于对方的否认句表现赞同时,许多时候,许多人仍旧会回覆yes,而不会说no。英语中表现同意的词许多,如果实在无法立马反映过来,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, 常用的另有sweat, you bet。或者你可以说:I hear you.你说的我明确。

说no的词也有好几个:nope, I don’t think so,等等。  33 有小我私家说: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岁的女人,这是迩来最为离奇的事。

)另一小我私家蛮有同情心,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,年事在婚姻中应该不是障碍,重要的是他们爱着对方,年事不是问题。)bizarre是一个美国人喜欢用的词,意思是“稀奇离奇,不正常的”;That is a bizarre story.(这个故事太荒唐。) The nine-head-bird is really bizarre.(九头鸟是不行能有的事。

)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 有个朋侪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. 我则可以回覆:“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现状。

)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。只是很惋惜,现在的中国邮局大部门都不管理邮政业务,而是成为银行了,所以信也没法寄。Drop by的意思是,顺便会见(没有计划的那种会见。)Please drop by sometime for a drink. - I dropped by my best friend’s house to see if he was home. 不要朋侪写信,就叫朋侪打电话好了: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侪,也可以用heart,例如说,sweat heart,但这指情人或关系特别密切的人。a heart to heart chat很老实的相同。

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相同,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,但这是个执法词汇,意思是犯罪了,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,听上去似乎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. 如果一小我私家晚上睡眠不足,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. 一小我私家看上去云里雾里的样子都是punchy,与喝醉酒貌差不多。  38 与load另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 市场上有许多关于学英语诀窍的书,但实际上,学英语就是一个背单词、与遗忘作斗争的历程。影象力好的人总是少数。

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 upon 经常温习,short cut,捷径。学英语最好是天天学一点,坚韧不拔,聚沙成塔:“Precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, idea by idea,”(一次学个观点,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. 这个事情庞大,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?  41 Hang 是个常用的单词,几本意思是“挂,吊”。

口语中加上in 或者on后,其意思是坚持。Hang in there, OK? 再在那里坚持一会。Everybody hanging on. 每小我私家都再坚持一下。

Stay on. 也是“再坚持一会”  All relationships go through rough times. You just have to hang in there. 每种关系都市履历难关,所以你坚持下去就好了。  Just hang on in there. The physical training istough but it’s worth it. 你一定要坚持下去,体育训练难度较大,但这价格是值得付的。

  Hang around 的意思是闲逛。你进商店,老板会问:What can I do for you? 你则可以回覆:I am just hanging around.我只是随便看看。

  Most husbands hate hanging around with their wives in the mall. It’s so boring! 大部门的先生都不喜欢跟妻子去逛商场,太无聊了。  I don’t like to hang around here after dark. 天黑后我不喜欢在这里逛了。  He had stupidly hung around — just to see what the cops were doing — and ended up being arrested!他在这里看热闹实在是笨,他就是想看看警员在干什么,效果把自己给弄抓起来了。

  Hang up with 是约会的意思。He is hanging up now with Jane.  42. 如果有人无所事事,你就可以说:Get a job. 去做点正事吧。  43.No need to panic.Don’t panic不要张皇。  44.You made your point. 我明确你的看法(意见)了。

或者:I heard you.  45.You are nasty. 你真是可恶。nasty weather; a nasty trick nasty是个常用词,表现厌恶。  46.Stay cool, man. 老兄,多多保重。

相当于Take care.  47.That is a wishful thinking. 想得美。也可以说是day dream白天梦。You are day dreaming. 'He lives in a dream that has nothing to do with reality'  48.Let us keep it that way. 还是原样吧。就这么办吧。

  49.Can you drop it? 能不能不谈这事了?  50.What is there for me (you)?两小我私家谈互助,你看了半天,都是对方得益,于是你就可以说这句话了:我的利益在那里?也可以说:Where is my cut? 51.Back To Basics 重新来,回到起点,回到基础的工具。  This is really complicated for me now, please get back to basics, OK?这真的有点庞大了,我搞不懂,能不能重新说一遍?  又可以说:Back To Square One 这是一个美式足球的术语,球又重新开始。

  Voters send tax relief back to square one. 投票人将缓税计划打回原宫。  表现“基本”的另一个词组是 the nuts and bolts  The nuts and bolts of college writing 大学写作初阶  nut 是螺帽, bolt 螺钉,螺帽螺钉是最基本的的工具,合在一起就是“基础”。

  52.Licking good 味道好极了,licking是舔的意思,例如手抓羊肉,吃完后,再舔舔手,证明好吃。It is licking good.  53.My toes feel very itchy. It’s really irritating. I think I have an athlete’s foot. 我脚趾痒得很,真烦人,我想我是得了香港脚气。

夏天还一个经常弄得皮肤很痒的是痱子Heat rash或heat burns,中暑是heat stroke,那就不是痒的问题了,搞欠好要命。  54.I really miss my good old days. Now age has set in.我真纪念以前那些优美的日子,现在是年岁不饶人呀。

  55.I owe you. 我欠你一次情。  56.Do they buy it? 他们买帐吗?  57.Don’t just talk to his mind, talk to his heart. 不仅要诉之于理,更是要动之以情。  58.That psycho scared me. 美国曾有部恐怖片,片名就是是《psycho》,主角是一个连环杀手,患有神经病。所以那些行为离奇的人也叫psycho.  59.You need to get yourself together. 你得清醒清醒。

  60.Guru 这个词最近几年最盛行,原意是指印度教、释教里的教师,现在也指新兴的宗教里的老师,进而泛指大师,也可译成大鳄。有时有戏称的味道。Diet guru 营养大师。
