最近刚开学,大家是不是都忙起来了?还有时间看剧吗?这一期看美剧学英语专栏,想分享给大家一部最近我看完的美剧:《摩登情爱》第2季。 021438yz9fh4l4bf7svz95.jpeg 这一季和第一季一样,依然是八个笑泪交织的小故事,讲述了八种姿态各异的爱情。或许是年岁渐长,年轻人的小情小爱已经不再能打动我了,有好几集甚至都没有耐心看完,反而深深着迷于中年人间年深日久的感情,尤其是第一集,太好哭了。无法想象失去亲密爱人的痛苦。两个一起成长、一起度过生命里各个阶段、共同建筑了彼此人生的人,早已融为了不可分割的一体。想起来在《我们为何结婚,又为何不忠》一书里看到的一句话:TheTaitaofKenyasaythatlovecomesintwoforms,anirresistiblelonging,a‘kindofsickness’,andadeependuringaffectionforanother.肯尼亚的泰塔族人说过,爱情有两种面貌:一种是无法克制的渴望,是“一种病”,另一种是对他人深沉而持久的依恋。如果被死亡硬生生地切断了这种依恋,该有多痛苦。 021442f6lue573mztfviw5.png 太喜欢这一集了,如果你只有时间看一集,那一定、一定选择看第一集。我特意去把8个小故事的原文复制粘贴下来,整理到在了一起,喜欢阅读短篇小说的同学可以”大饱眼福“啦。 021446ptstnigctkkiekcd.jpeg (关注公众号:跟Lexie学外刊 回复:摩登情爱 即可开始阅读)这部剧里有很多值得学习的表达,我从中挑选了8个地道习语,5个高频短语,和大家一起学习。我把每一个表达所在的片段都剪辑了下来,大家先看视频,再学习讲解。 021446nwdl17k6nu5n5zxs.png 021447p7lp9xnpzu9wzpk2.png 地道习语01be on tenterhooks 021447nold5jljrdkezhhd.jpeg The whole street is on tenterhooks.be on tenterhooks是一个词组,表示「提心吊胆,焦虑不安,如坐针毡的」(worried or nervous about something that is going to happen)。Wewere on tenterhooksall morning waiting for the phone to ring.我们整个上午都如坐针毡,一直在等着电话铃响。查了查tenterhook是什么,原来是下图这种小勾子: 021447k9it5t7k4x9o95xz.jpeg 可想而知,be on a tenterhooks 得有多难受,多焦虑啊。我还联想到另外一个很形象的词:be on pins and needlespin 指「大头针」,needle 指「缝衣针」,be on pins and needles 和中文里「如坐针毡」异曲同工,形容人坐立不安的样子,尤其是指因等待重要事情。比如等待高考成绩的时候,我们都是on pinsand needles.I've beenon pins and needlesall week waiting for the exam results.《致命女人》和《绝望主妇》里也出现过这个词: 021448mh3z8n47p3e9ppvf.jpeg I‘ve been on pins and needles. Did you talk to Rob last night? 021449azcx56kb7e7j6u17.png We're on pins and needles.《经济学人》一篇关于迪士尼的文章也用到了这一表达:Every weekond, we sit on pins and needles watching to see if our films will flop. 021449etttol4z8uytymqy.jpeg 这段视频里还出现了一个高频表达:flout the rules。 021449ewlhlcpjllavpflh.jpeg He's not gonna show up,Mum, and he's not just gonna flout the rules for someone like me.flout[flat]是个高频词,指「公然无视,违抗」(to deliberately disobey a law, rule etc, without trying to hide what you are doing),后面常常跟法律、规定。flout the rules 便表示「违反规则」。违法除了violate the law,也可以说flout the law。02dip a toe in sth 021449bujivpjz4a8sui32.jpeg dip a toe in / into sthdip 是「蘸,浸」的意思,把脚趾放在水里蘸一下,表示「涉足试试,小心尝试」(to start doing sth very carefully to see if it will be successful or not),是不是很形象呢? 021449w2ilnl0ckzg02cki.gif 《华尔街日报》一篇关于如何玩比特币的文章也用到了这个词: 021452iubl2w824uxp63ff.png 我们热炒热卖,联系热点话题「直播带货」造个句:越来越多的品牌开始尝试直播带货。An increasing number of brandsdip their toes inthe E-commerce livestreaming.近义词还有set foot in /onsth:set 是「放」的意思,把脚放入...,表示「进入,访问,参观某地」(to enter or visit a place)。《经济学人》一篇关于门当户对的弊端的文章,就用set foot in a school 表示「踏入学校」,原文是这样写的:Affluent parents intensively nurture their children for success; the offspring of less fortunate homes fall far behind before theyever set footina school.富裕的父母精心培育孩子,助其成功,而那些没那么幸运的家庭的子女还没踏入校门就已远远落后。《老友记》里也出现过这个词组: 021453oewnefdtiohdleee.png I bet he has neverset foot ina museum.再扩展3个关于toe的地道表达:① tread / step on sb's toestread 和step作动词,都有「踩」的意思,tread / step on sb's toes 字面义便是「踩某人的脚」的意思,喻指「得罪某人」,尤其是指因为涉足别人负责的范围而得罪某人。英文解释是to offend someone, especially by becoming involved in something that they are responsible for。比如:I must be careful not totread on their toes. My job is to challenge, but not threaten them. 我必须小心谨慎,不能得罪他们。我的工作是挑战他们,而不是威胁他们。我在看剧的时候经常遇见这个词组: 021453s368yh53ym57s677.png Just be careful not tread on their toes, especially you. 021454yhrgglmwfgzm4ykm.png Well, I don't wanna step on my producer's toes.用近义词记生词:offend sb → tread/step on sb's toes② keep sbon one'stoes让某人一直垫着脚,喻指「使某人保持警觉」(if sb plays by their own rules or makes other people play by their rules, they set the conditions for doing business or having a relationship)。比如:His fiery campaign rhetorichas keptopposition partieson their toesfor months.他激烈的竞选言辞使反对党派一连几个月都保持警觉。 021455m93y2pqy1ycq9skq.png What're you playing at? Keeping her on her toes? 021456o5jbfgaf45w7fbhq.png Aunt March Kept me on mytoes today.③ gotoe-to-toe脚趾对脚趾,喻指「针锋相对」。外刊里也常出现这个词。Fortune杂志一篇关于瑞幸咖啡的文章就用到了这个词:The delivery-first coffee upstart once wowed investors with ambitious plans togo toe-to-toe withStrbucks in China.
021457jaj3ngkjac3v4ba3.png
总结一下我们刚刚学习的关于toe的几个表达:dip a toe into sthtread / step one's toeskeep sb on one's toesgo toe-to-toe with sb03 take a back seatback seat是「后座」的意思,take a back seat 坐在后座上,喻指「退居二线,由他人做主」(to allow sb else to play a more active and important role in a particular situation than you do)。一篇发表在英国皇家学会期刊的文章表明,不管是男性还是女性,拥有最大的社会交往半径的年龄大约是25岁。由于注意力在事业和发展爱情上,年轻人的社交圈会明显收紧,友谊也会退居次位。这里的「退居次位」,原文就用的take a back seat:A studyfound that the maximum number of social connections for both men and women occurs around the age of 25. But as young adults settle into careers and prioritize romantic relationships, those social circles rapidly shrink and friendships tend to take a back seat.再举个例子,《中国日报》一篇关于中国抗疫状况的文章也用到了这个词:Biegon hailed China for rallying behind global fight against the pandemic through donation of vaccines and other essential medical supplies while rich Western nations take a back seat.比根称赞中国在西方富国退居其次时捐赠疫苗和其他基本医疗用品,以支持全球抗疫。顺便讲讲例句中的生词:hail 作动词指「赞扬,称赞」,惯用搭配为hail sb/sth as sth,一般都用于报刊中。rally 作动词,指「团结一致,齐心协力」(to cause tocome together in order to provide support or make a shared effort),再举个例子:Thepresidenthas called on thepeopleto rally to/behind the government.总统已发出号召,呼吁公众和政府团结在一起。04zoneout 021457by1cky8y8i0aahnc.png zone out是一个词组,表示「走神,注意力不集中」(to stop paying attention and not hear or see what is around you for a short period of time)。05from scratch 021458fzxinomnm2j76xmn.jpeg from scratch表示「从零开始,从头开始;白手起家」(if you start something from scratch, you begin it without using anything that existed or was prepared before )。我们平时说的「白手起家」就可以用start a business from scratch来表达。《纽约时报》一篇关于新冠疫苗的文章也用到了这个词:But when a vaccine maker anywhere else applies for prequalification, the W.H.O. conducts a full evaluation from scratch, including a physical inspection of the manufacturing facilities.但当其他国家的疫苗制造商申请预认证的时候,世卫组织要从头开始进行全面评估,包括对生产设施的实际检查。06getsth off one's chest 021458o1el05iiewrthtna.jpeg chest是「胸部」的意思,get sth off one's chest把郁结在胸口的事放下来,表示「倾吐心中的烦恼,吐出心事,一吐为快」(to talk about sth that has been worrying you for a long time so that you feel less anxious)。比如:I feel it's done me good to get it off my chest.我感觉吐吐苦水对我有好处。《无耻之徒》里的一句台词特别有意思,很有画面感,也很重口味,分享给大家:I can't tell you how good that feels to get that off my chest. It’s like taking a 1000-pound shit. 021459c1wg1zmpdwdt1coq.jpeg 《老友记》里也出现过这个词: 021459m0owg0i7rs8c692o.png Wow, that feels so good to get off my chest!我还联想到一部我特别喜欢的纪录片《约翰·威尔逊的十万个什么做》中的一句话: 021500t43xvllq616fdlm6.jpeg The worldis full of people that need to get something off their chest. And even though it can be risky to open up, it is worth it when you find the rightperson.很喜欢这句话06hit it off 021500f9xlk6ruk99z399o.png hit it off with sb表示「和某人投缘,和...相处地很好」。比如:我和他一见如故:I hit it off with him immediately.hit有「击打」的意思,可以中文里的「一拍即合」一起记忆。 021501hlcyuz3s2picluli.png Susan meets someone, and they hit if off. 021502b0j466ur09t4xt21.png I hit it off with both her parents.07face the music主题曲里还有两个很地道的表达: 021503sas0g539g2y3iw24.jpeg facethe music可不是字面上「面对音乐」的意思,而是指接受一个行为带来的不愉快的结果,表示「接受批评,接受处罚」(to accept and deal with criticism or punishment for sth you havedone)。face the music 是一个戏剧术语。在剧院里,管弦乐队通常坐在舞台前面。所以演员上台就得面对音乐家们,所以非常紧张,容易怯场。但一旦音乐响起,演员不管有多怯场,都只能去face the music(必须承受出现的局面)。于是,后来人们便用face the music 来表达承担自己行为的后果。举两个例子:Theothers all ran off, leaving me tofacethemusic. 其他人都跑掉了,留下我来挨罚。After he was caught cheating, he had to face the music. 作弊被抓后,他需要承担相应的后果。08throw one'shat in the ringring作名词时,除了大家熟悉的「戒指」的意思,还可表示「拳击台,摔跤台」。 021504v82235i375jr2893.jpeg throw one's hat in the ring 把帽子扔到摔跤台里。据说在19世纪的拳击比赛中,如果有人想和拳击手较量,就把帽子扔进拳击场里。 021504gkkutkjsekkethle.gif 后来throw one's hat in the ring 便喻指「正式宣布参加竞选、应聘」。《经济学人》一篇关于希拉里即将参加总统竞选的文章就用到了这个词: 021508lm40fl2wo11v1sor.png 021508ikvgpjy2uoghi297.png 021508ao5anh25zgy85vss.png 高频短语01a hint of sth 021508x1gk0o2w0qp0k07e.png You say that with a hint of anxiety.a hint of sth指「一丝,少量,微量」,相当于a small amount of sth,很高频的一个词,我们来看一些例子:There was more than a hint of sadness in his voice. 他的声音中流露出了深切的悲伤。 021509tz0lv0idjkvfctvj.png 021510urxl6kealk63u6ra.png hint还可作动词,指「暗示,示意」,惯用搭配为hint at sth,hint that ...比如:She suggested a trip to the shops and hinted at the possibility of a treat of some sort.她建议去逛逛商店,并暗示可能要请客。考研英语二2014年真题里也出现过这个词:The communities minister, Don Foster, has hinted that George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer, may introduce more flexibility to the current cap on the amount that local authorities can borrow against their housing stock debt.社区大臣唐·福斯特暗示,财政大臣乔治·奥斯本可能会灵活放宽地方政府住房存量债务的接待数额上限。02throwoneself into sth 021511odxuwiuxuu4iq0iu.png throw sb into doing sth表示「投身于;热衷于;积极从事」(to begin to do sth with energy and enthusiasm)。举个例子:她满怀热情地投入了新工作。She hasthrownherself into this newjob.考研英语二2017年的完形填空里也考过这个短语:“When I come home from a hard day's work, I often feel tired," Danaher says, adding, "In a world in which I don't have to work, I might feel rather different”—perhaps different enough to throw himself _____ a hobby or a passion project with the intensity usually reserved for professional matters.A.off B.against C.behind D.into答案非常明显了。这也是一个日常生活中很高频的短语,再来看一些美剧里的例子: 021512cjmwsepmep9tst4t.png You know, Mom threw herself intoall of it. 021514f3sqhell8g63lsfg.png Shehas really thrown herself into the wholething.03qualify for sth 021514jxegregxxuux8n8r.jpeg Thanks. Ofcourse, you'll qualify for a VA loan, you lucky son of a gun.qualify for sth是一个词组,表示「达标,获得参赛资格」(to reach the necessary standard to enter or continue in a competition or sports event)。而qualify sb for sth指「让某人有资格做某事,让某人能胜任某事」(to give sb the skills and knowledge they need to do sth)。这个学位将使你有资格当教师。This degree willqualifyyouforteaching.再比如《经济学人》一篇关于离婚冷静期的文章有这样一句话:Ms Wang’smeagreincome shouldqualifyherforlegal aid from the state.王女士收入微薄,应当有资格获得国家法律援助。美剧《浪子神探》里也出现了这个词: 021515ko98d07dpi7pbuu5.jpeg That shouldn't preclude me from police work, it should qualify me for it.顺便讲一讲另一个高频词:qualify as sthqualify as sth有两大常见意思:1.表示「达到…标准,取得…资格」(to pass an examination or finish a course of study that you need in order to do something)。举个例子:He qualified as a doctor last year. 他去年获得了医生的资格。2.表示「算作,配得上」某个称号等等(to have the right qualities to be described as a particular thing)。比如:It doesn’t qualify as a date if you bring your children with you.如果你带孩子一起来,那还算什么约会。 021516f1bdzmajkb2mo1vi.png And you don't think that qualifies you as a certified prodigy.04be out of sth 021516g575v7ps2uw7russ.png be out of sth和我们熟悉的run out of sth一样,表示「用完,耗尽」(used to show that sb / sth does not have any of sth)。举几个例子:我们没有牛奶了。We'reout ofmilk.他已经失业六个月了。He's beenout ofworkfor one months.你真不走运 —— 她十分钟前才离开。You'reout ofluck—she left two minutes ago. 021518axs9q77cu9hu7l9h.png I'm out of medication. Here's my prescription.05bridge the gap 021518dyzxr9nwd9rn4ywj.jpeg I am learningthere's a big difference between writing a screenplay and having a screenplay produced. I'm still trying to figure out how to bridge that gap.bridge作名词是「桥梁」的意思,作动词便表示「搭建桥梁」,bridge the gap / gulf / divide (between A and B)便表示「消除A与B之间的隔阂 / 鸿沟 / 分歧」。举个例子,「消除贫富差距」我们就可以说:bridge the gap between the rich and the poor每一篇文章最多只能插入10个视频,有一些不得不删去,大家可以在视频号@Lexie的英语窝里看到全部小视频。 021519gppe2jfpvcujijju.jpeg 最后,我把上面的短视频剪到了一起,去掉了字幕,大家在整体盲听一遍。The End推荐阅读《致命女人》里有哪些令人惊艳的词汇?《致命女人2》有哪些令人惊艳的表达?何同学全英文采访苹果CEO,我酸了豆瓣9.2,听说这是2020年度最佳美剧?豆瓣8.3,男女之间有纯友谊吗?死亡是凉爽的夜晚 | 寻梦环游记豆瓣9.2,刀口上舔糖,我陷进去了豆瓣9.3,推荐一部5年来评分最高的英剧精品课程更丰富的外刊精读文章,尽在经典课程外刊精读社·第2季包含教育、科技、环境、经济等10大专题阳刚之气、抖音快手、新冠疫苗、整容医美、三孩政策等15大话题紧跟时事热点新增精听板块,带你同步提高听说读写能力点击阅读原文可了解课程详情和学员评价 021520um0i6mg60a0myggt.png 45天快速突破长难句训练营(9月班)精心打磨的口碑好课正在火热报名中带你吃透非谓语动词、三大从句、倒装、独立主格、强调、省略等核心语法点现在报名,可立即优惠100元点击阅读原文即可报名
