大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Neil
… and hello, it’s me, Neil.

Jiaying
Neil – what’s wrong? You look a little sad!

Neil
Well, earlier, the owner of the local coffee shop laughed at me! She said that my purple suit made me look ridiculous – she said I looked like a big grape!

Jiaying
Well, I hope you clapped back!

Neil
I certainly did not! I just bought my coffee and left. Why would I clap her horrible comment? I don’t want to applaud it!

Jiaying
不是那个意思,Neil!我说的是 “clap back”,意思是 “回击” 或 “回嘴”。你可以用这个短语来表示 “在受到某人的批评之后,回击、顶嘴、顶回去”。

Neil
Good point! I should have said that if she doesn’t like my suit, I won’t drink coffee from her shop ever again!

Jiaying
Yes, you should have clapped back with that! But now let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
When she said his sponge cake wasn’t nice, he clapped back and said she made bad cups of tea.

Don’t clap back at me! I wasn’t trying to criticise you when I said you need to change your t-shirt!

She clapped back by telling him he was the worst driver in the world.

Jiaying
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。上面,我们介绍了短语 “clap back”,意思是 “反击某人对你的批评,顶回去”。

Neil
Yes! Like the other day when someone said they didn’t like the music you were listening to, and you clapped back and said he had bad taste in music.

Jiaying
Haha, yes! I don’t know why he said that – I was listening to it on my headphones!

Neil
Well, I have to say you do listen to the music pretty loudly – everyone can hear it – even on your headphones.

Jiaying
Are you criticising the loudness of my music?

Neil
No! I would never criticise you – I don’t want you to clap back!

Jiaying
Good! Anyway, I’m going to go and listen to some music. Bye, Neil!

Neil
OK, I’ll get some earplugs. Bye!
