与人讨论问题的时候,你听过I second that这句话吗?

To “second” something means to be in support of a proposed idea or motion.

second某事的意思是支持一个提议或想法。

 

Formally, in a meeting when someone suggests or proposes an idea, there needs to be a “second” (someone else who supports the motion) for discussion to take place that results in a vote. Without a “second” the idea or motion dies and is not considered.

正式地说,在会议上,当有人提出一个建议或想法时,需要有第二个人(支持该动议的其他人)进行讨论,然后进行投票。没有second的想法或动议则不被考虑。

 

Informally, if people are just talking in a group and someone has an idea or makes a point about any particular subject, someone else in the group may say, “I second that”, meaning that he/she supports the idea and agrees with what was said.

非正式地说,如果人们只是在一群人中交谈,有人对任何特定的主题有一个想法或提出一个观点,这个群体中的其他人可能会说,I second that,意思是他支持这个观点并同意所讲的内容。

 

 

例句:

- How about pizza for dinner?

-今晚吃披萨怎么样?

- I second that!

-我同意。

 

The motion was proposed by the club's chairwoman and seconded by the secretary.

该动议由俱乐部主席提出,由干事附议。

 

- I could use a drink.

-我想喝杯饮料。

- I'll second that.

-我赞成。
