大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Rob
… and me, Rob. Hey, Jiaying, have I told you about my amazing weekend?

Jiaying
No.

Rob
Well, I met some friends, played football in the park, had one of those delicious ice creams from that new shop, then went shopping and bought some new jeans and a new jacket! And then…

Jiaying
Rob! Stop!

Rob
Why? I’m wearing my new jacket now. Don’t you like it? It was such a bargain, and then what I did next…

Jiaying
Please, Rob! Just zip it!

Rob
Zip it? Oh, OK, I’ll zip it up if that’ll cheer you up.

Jiaying
No – zip it. Stop talking!

Rob
Oh, OK.

当我们让某人 “zip it” 的时候,意思就是让这个人 “安静下来,不要再说话了”。虽然 “zip it” 这个表达比较直接,听起来可能有些不礼貌,但如果有人总是喋喋不休地讲话,影响到了你,你就能用上它。Listen to that – peace and quiet – that’s better.

Rob
Err… maybe we could hear some examples now?

Examples
I had to ask her to zip it – nobody else could say what they thought.

Just zip it, will you, please? We’ve listened to you enough, and what you’re saying is rubbish!

Eventually, I told him to zip it – I’d heard enough of him complaining about how much work he had to do.

Can you zip it again, please – you’re talking too much. 哎,要不我们还是先别说话了。
