  如果大家记忆力超强,一定会对之前搞过的一篇类似文章有印象,叫做《中英文里那些“神似”的表达》,今天的内容,就当成是sequel(续集)喽!

  言简意赅,不说废话,开始整起:

  Blood is thicker than water.

  Family relationships are stronger than any others.

  中文里的“血浓于水”,这算是完全直译喽。

  Be able to do something in your sleep

  To be able to do something very easily because you have done it many times before.

  中文里可以对应“我闭着眼睛也能…”。例如:

  I haven’t done many portraits, but I could paint landscapes in my sleep.

  Shut / close your eyes to something

  To pretend that you have not noticed something so that you do not have to deal with it.

  中文里咱们说“对…视而不见”,差不多就是这么意思。例如:

  You can’t just close your eyes to his violence.

  They seem intent on shutting their eyes to the problems of pollution.

  Have money to burn

  To have so much money that you do not have to be careful with it.

  我们说“烧钱”,英文里也用了burn哦。“钱多到拿钱点烟”,这么记就记住了。还记得之前说过的“花钱如流水”不?对了,就是spend money like water.

  Out of sight, out of mind.

  Used to say somebody will quickly be forgotten when they are no longer with you.

  有点儿像“眼不见,心不烦”的感觉……

  Pool of blood

  嗯,这个就是“血泊”。例如:

  The body was lying in a pool of blood.

  keep somebody at arm’s length

  To avoid having a close relationship with somebody.

  中文里咱们有“保持一臂距离”对吧,这么记就特别好记。例如:

  He keeps all his clients at arm’s length.

  (in) black and white

  In a way that makes people or things seem completely bad or good, or completely right or wrong.

  我们在评论是非对错的时候,可能会听到有人说“不分黑白”。英文里也用黑和白来指绝对的好和坏,对和错。例如:

  It’s a complex issue, but he only sees it in black and white.

  In black and white

  In writing or in print.

  中文里,尤其是在电视剧里,每次遇到“签字画押”情节,总能听到“白纸黑字”是不?英文里也有对应的含义。例如:

  I never thought they’d put it in black and white on the front page.

  Show your face

  To appear among your friends or in public.

  简单的记,就是“露脸”。例如:

  She stayed at home, afraid to show her face.
