Jiaying
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Neil
… and hello, it’s me, Neil. Jiaying – why are there olives everywhere?

Jiaying
我买了一罐橄榄,特别好吃!所以,我又回到商店里买了一大堆。They’re so moreish!

Neil
More? What do you mean ‘more’? I can see there’s more than normal here – Jiaying, this is ridiculous – there are olives all over my keyboard and seat!

Jiaying
我说的不是 “more”,而是 “moreish, M O R E I S H”。我们用形容词 “moreish” 表示某样东西 “非常好吃,吃完了还想再吃,让人回味无穷”。I would offer to share them with you, but they’re so moreish that I want to eat them all!

Neil
First of all, no, thanks – I hate olives. Secondly – we need to tidy up! Thirdly, your example of ‘moreish’ makes sense. So, are you going to help me clean up?

Jiaying
I would but I’m too busy eating these olives. Have I mentioned they’re moreish?

Neil
Only about a thousand times. Seriously, our boss is coming so we need to start cleaning.

Jiaying
OK, OK – I’ll put the olives down and help you clean! We can do that while we listen to these examples.

Examples
That spicy sauce is so moreish – it makes everything taste better!

Have you tried that cake? It’s really moreish.

I need to avoid those moreish sweets! I’m on a diet.

Jiaying
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。上面,我们介绍了形容词 “moreish” 的含义和用法。假如一样食物 “非常美味,让我们吃了还想再吃”,就可以使用这个形容词。Neil,你竟然不喜欢橄榄?

Neil
It’s true – but strangely I like olive oil. I usually find savoury things like peanuts really moreish!

Jiaying
没错,花生这种食物确实也会让人吃上瘾。Have you tried those new spicy peanuts in the canteen?

Neil
Yes! They’re amazing – and what about those really moreish spicy dips that you can use to make your peanuts even spicier?

Jiaying
Oh – it’s like a taste explosion! They’re so moreish as a combination!

Neil
I’m really hungry now! I think I could eat a bucket full of peanuts!

Jiaying
哎,我也是!好了,我要去食堂抢花生吃了!

Neil
Not if I get there first! Oh, look, an olive!

Jiaying
Where? There’s no olive – you tricked me! Well done – you win this round of the food wars! Bye, Neil!
