Slay 很酷,让人赞不绝口

 

内容简介

大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Roy
… and me, Roy. Oh, I really like your jumper. Is that a vampire on the front?

Jiaying
Yes, it is! I slay!

Roy
I’m sorry? You do what?

Jiaying
I said that I slay. When you look this amazing, you are going to slay!

Roy
Whoa! Wait a second. Are you saying you’re going to kill vampires? I thought they weren’t real!

Jiaying
No, Roy! 你误会了,我知道动词 “slay” 有 “kill(杀死)” 的意思,但它还表示 “看起来很酷、很精彩” 或者 “给人留下深刻的印象,让人赞不绝口”。比如:I read a book last night – it slays! 昨天晚上我看了一本书,它太精彩了!

Roy
So, you’re not Jiaying the Vampire Slayer, then? Ha! That makes more sense! Well, your jumper is awesome. So, yes. It slays!

Jiaying
Exactly! Well, let’s talk about more things that slay after these examples.

Examples
He looks amazing today! He’s wearing a really smart suit – he slays!

Their house is incredible – decorated with true style and taste! And don’t get me started on the furniture – it slays!

She really slayed last night at the award ceremony. She looked amazing!

Jiaying
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。以上,我们给大家介绍了动词 “slay” 除了 “kill” 以外的另一个意思和用法。如果某个人或事物 “slays”,意思就是 “这个人或事物看起来很酷、很精彩” 或者 “让人赞不绝口”。

Roy
Yes, for example, last night, I watched a great film about vampires. It slays! I think that was why I was so scared earlier!

Jiaying
Well, don’t worry. Hey, do you know what else slays? My amazing smile!

Roy
Your teeth – they’re really sharp! You have fangs! Wait! Are you a vampire?

Jiaying
我当然不是吸血鬼了。你上当了吧!这可不是我的真牙,它是用来装扮成吸血鬼的道具!你别说,看起来还真像那么回事。They slay!

Roy
Wow, that’s the second time you’ve tricked me today! You’re hilarious! What are you drinking?

Jiaying
Just a fruit smoothie! It’s delicious! It slays!

Roy
It’s really red! Are you sure that’s a fruit smoothie?

Jiaying
Definitely – what else could it be? Mwahahahaha… Bye, Roy!

Roy
Bye!
