VOA流行美语 71:SHADES / GET TURNED DOWNMichael和李华现在在商店里买东西。李华会学到两个常用语: shades和to get turned down.L: Michael, 你在看什么?M: I really need a new pair of sunglasses. I sat on the old ones and crushed them.L: 你也真是的,怎么会坐在自己的太阳眼镜上呢!M: (trying on a pair of sunglasses) Li Hua, what do you think? Do I look cool in these shades?L: 你把太阳眼镜叫做shades? 是s-h-a-d-e这个词吗?那不是"树荫"的意思吗?M: Shade used as plural - shades, is just another word for sunglasses. It makes sense because they shade your eyes from the sun.L: 噢,shade用作复数,就可以指"太阳眼镜"。对,太阳眼镜把阳光给挡住了。这么说倒挺形象的。 Yes, Michael, you look very "cool" in those "shades."M: Thank you. Li Hua, You should try on this pair of shades. They would look pretty on you.L: 好啊,我来试试。倒是真好看,可惜太贵了。我可舍不得花这么多钱。M: Yes, those shades are pretty expensive. Maybe they'll go on sale. I have to pay for my shades now.L: 对,我还是等它减价的时候再买吧。你决定买你这副了?可要小心哟,别再把你的new shades放在椅子上给坐坏了。M: I will be careful. Hey, Li Hua, how about this pair of shades? They are light brown instead of black.L: 这副浅棕色的墨镜确实挺别致的,不过,我不太喜欢这个颜色。我想我还是等下次挑一副黑色的shades吧!M: Okay, I think we need to get back to school. Don't you have a class this afternoon?L: 就是啊,我下午有课,我们赶快回学校吧。******L: Michael, 你看,那边走过来的不就是你喜欢的那个女生吗?你现在戴着新墨镜,样子好酷啊。还不赶快跟她说句话?M: No, I don't really feel like getting turned down. I'm sure she has a boyfriend anyway.L: 哎哟,你真是的!你怎么能肯定她已经有男朋友了呢?你说什么不想被turned down?你是说,怕这个女孩的男朋友找你算帐,把你打翻在地呀?M: No, no. "To get turned down" means to get rejected. I'm afraid of getting turned down means I'm afraid of being rejected.L: 原来,to get turned down就是"遭到拒绝"的意思,也就是说,你想和她交往,如果她不愿意,那你就是被turned down了。你是怕遭到她的拒绝,让你下不了台呀!M: Exactly. Nobody likes to get turned down.L: 我也知道,谁都不想被拒绝。可是,你怎么能肯定这个女生就一定会turn you down呢?你不试一试,永远也不知道她到底是不是真的会turn you down啊!M: You're right. My fear of getting turned down is making it difficult to find a girlfriend. I suppose I'll survive even if she turns me down. Maybe I'll ask her out to coffee next time I see her.L: 就是啊,你老怕被拒绝,怎么能找到女朋友嘛!而且,即使被turned down, 也没什么大不了的。Michael, 你要是戴着这副新买的墨镜,我肯定她不会turn you down。M: Are you sure she won't turn me down if I wear these shades?L: 我肯定她不会拒绝你,可是,她要是已经有男朋友了,那我就不知道你这副新买的shades有多大威力了。M: Ok, I'll make sure if she has a boyfriend before I ask her out.今天李华学到两个常用语,一个是:shades, 相当于 sunglasses, 也就是"太阳眼镜"、"墨镜";另一个是:to get turned down, 意思是"遭到拒绝"。 /200602/3146

to get one's back up to scratch one's back 当一只猫生气的时候,它往往把它的背拱起来,嘴里还发出呼呼的声音,显得它随时准备施展它那爪子的威力。美国一个常用语就出自猫的这种形像。 这个常用语就是:to get one's back up。To get one's back up就是生气的意思。下面这句话是一个妻子在说他的丈夫: 例句-1: "One thing really gets my back up -- the way my husband leaves his clothes on the bed or on the floor so I have to pick them up all the time." 她说:“我的丈夫总是把衣往床上、地上乱扔,我老得把它们拣起来,真叫我生气。” 可是,妻子的批评使做丈夫的很生气。他对朋友说: 例句-2: "And there's one thing that really gets my back up: my wife nagging at me to hang my clothes up as soon as I walk in the house at night after a hard day at the office." 他说:“每天在办公室辛苦地工作了一天,可是晚上一走家门,我老婆就开始唠叨,要我把衣挂好。这实在让我生气。” 要是你觉得背上某一个地方痒痒,而你自己又抓不到。这是很难受的。在这种情况下,最好有人替你抓一下。美国人有一个普遍的说法,那就是:to scratch one's back。To scratch one's back从字面上来看就是“抓某人的背”。它的真正含义是:某人帮了你一下忙,而这个帮你忙的人也期望你下回帮他的忙。因此,to scratch one's back实际上就是:这回你帮我忙,下回我就帮你的忙。例如,一个参议员对他的高级助手说: 例句-3: "This senator from the 11th district scratched my back when he voted for my bill to cut state income taxes, so it's my turn to do him a favor and vote for that bill for more money for roads in his district." 这位参议员说:“上回在投票通过我提出的有关裁减州所得税的提案时,第十一选区的参议员投了我一票,帮了我的忙。所以,现在是该我帮他忙的时候了,我得投票赞成为他的选区修建公路增加拨款的提案。” 这种现象在政客当中很普遍,但是做买卖的也要相互给好处,请听这位推销员说的话: 例句-4: "In my business it's important to scratch each other's back. Say a customer does me a favor by giving me an extra big order. The next time he's in town I might take him out to dinner and a broadway show." 这位推销员说:“干我们这行,相互帮忙是很重要的。要是一位顾客订了特别大的一批货,帮了我的忙。下次他再到这个城市来的时候,我可能得请他吃晚饭和到百老汇去看演出。” 今天我们讲了两个习惯用语:"to get one's back up"和"to scratch one's back"。 To get one's back up是生气的意思;to scratch one's back是指某人帮了一下忙,帮忙的人也期待对方下回帮他的忙。 「美国习惯用语」第一百零一课就讲到这里。欢迎下次再一起来学习美国习惯用语。再见。 /200601/3056

My fellow Americans, Im joining you today from the deck of what will be our Nations newest aircraft carrier, the soon-to-be commissioned Gerald R. Ford, and as you can see, Im wearing a jacket and a hat that they just gave me. Not really used to it, but it feels awfully good – Im very proud of it actually. Our carriers are the centerpiece of American military might, projecting power and our totally unparalleled strength at sea. This beautiful new warship represents the future of naval aviation, and she will serve as a cornerstone of our national defense for decades and decades to come. A famous aviator once wrote that, to build a truly great ship, we shouldnt begin by gathering wood, cutting boards, or distributing work, but instead by awakening within the people a ;desire for the vast and endless sea.; So true. In the same way, we must continue to renew the American spirit in order to rebuild our country, and rebuild it we will. On Tuesday, before a Joint Session to of Congress, I laid out a vision – I hope you all watched – for how to accomplish that national rebuilding. My vision includes the elimination of the defense sequester, which has imposed steep cuts on our military. We must give our sailors, soldiers, airmen, marines, and coastguardsmen the tools, equipment, resources and training they need to get the job done, and get it done right – especially in these very dangerous times. The active duty Army has been reduced by more than 85,000 men since , and we have over 18,000 fewer active duty marines. Air Force, its the smallest it has been since 1947, and their planes are, on average, nearly thirty years old, if you can believe that. Our Navys fleet is the smallest it has been since World War I, and thats a long time ago. Frontline Navy and Marine strike fighter aircraft are more likely to be down for maintenance than to be in the sky. We cannot afford to continue down this path. My budget will give Americas armed forces the resources they need to achieve full and total military preparedness to meet any and all global challenges – and meet them, we will. Investing in the military means investing in peace – because the best way to prevent war, as George Washington said, is to be prepared for it. Most importantly, an investment in the military is an investment in the incredible men and women who serve our country in uniform. They are the best of us. They are the greatest force for peace and justice the world has ever known – and we will support them every single step of the way. These are truly exciting times. Amazing opportunities are unfolding before us – to strengthen our military, to reboot our economy, and to bring back our jobs. If we all work together, and put our country first, then anything is possible. Let us seize this moment and make the most of this incredible opportunity for national renewal. May God bless the men and women of our military, and may God bless the ed States of America, the country we love.201703/499660
