常听常新的英语酷词第104期:Angsty 焦虑不堪的

发表时间:2017-10-15内容来源:VOA英语学习网
The word angst, meaning neurotic fear, anxiety, guilt or remorse comes from German, but has been used in English since the 1940s. angst这个词的含义是指神经质般的恐惧、焦虑、内疚或懊悔,出自于德语,不过自20世纪40年代以来就已经在英语中应用了。 It comes from the same root as the word anger, 它和anger一样,有着同样的词根, and was originally popularised in English through translations of the work of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. 最初是通过翻译精神分析学家西格蒙德·弗洛伊德的著作,而在英语中流行开来的。 The word has more recently adapted however, and now teenagers are much more likely to talk about feeling angsty. 不过,这个单词最近稍微有了些改变,现在,年轻人更愿意说feeling angsty。 When they complain about not being understood by anyone, or that they are alone in the world, they are feeling angsty. 当他们抱怨没有人能理解自己时,或是他们在这个世界上很孤独时,他们就feeling angsty。 When they insist that you could never know how terrible it feels to them, 当他们坚称你可能永远也不理解他们觉得有多糟糕、 how the whole world wants to destroy them, they do it because they are feeling angsty. 整个世界有多么想要摧毁他们的时候,他们就会这样,因为他们感觉很焦虑。 An angsty person feels completely unloved, unwanted, disrespected, ignored. 一个焦虑的人,会觉得自己完全不被别人喜爱、不受欢迎、不受尊重、被忽视。 Some cruel people might suggest that those who feel angsty are just looking for attention. 一些冷漠的人可能会认为,这些感到焦虑的人只是在寻求关注。 But these people don't understand us. And they never will! 但是这些人是不会理解我们的。他们永远也不会! 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171015/502653.html
