发表时间:2017-11-12内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Neil: Hi, I'm Neil and this is Helen! 尼尔:大家好,我是尼尔,这是海伦! Helen: Hello. 海伦:大家好。 Neil: What's wrong Helen? You're looking rather sheepish. 尼尔:海伦,出什么事了?你看起来非常窘迫。 Helen: Sheepish? Like a sheep? I know my jumper is quite woolly. 海伦:Sheepish?像羊一样?我知道我的毛衣是毛绒绒的。 Neil: I don't mean you look like a sheep. I mean you look sheepish, which is quite different! 尼尔:我并不是说你看起来像只羊。我的意思是,你看上去很窘迫,意思完全不同! Helen: Of course, looking like a sheep and looking sheepish are two totally different things, obviously! 海伦:当然,看上去像只羊,和像羊一样是完全不同的意思! Neil: Yes. If I say you look like a sheep, it means, well, you look like a sheep. But if I say you look sheepish, it means you look embarrassed or ashamed about something. 尼尔:是的。如果我说你看上去像只羊,意思就是你看起来像羊。但是如果我说你看上去很窘迫,意思是你看上去对某件事感到尴尬或是难为情。 Helen: To look sheepish means you look embarrassed or ashamed–like you've done something wrong or silly? 海伦:看上去sheepish的意思是看起来很尴尬或难为情,就像你做了某件错事或傻事? Neil: Yes! 尼尔:对! Helen: Ah, yes. 海伦:好。 Neil: Listen to some examples: 尼尔:来看看这些例句: Tom walked into the room looking sheepish. 汤姆尴尬地走进房间。 Emily grinned sheepishly as she closed the door behind her. 艾米莉在关上身后的门时不好意思地咧嘴笑了。 James gave her a sheepish look. 詹姆斯难为情地看着她。 Neil: So, come on Helen, why are you looking sheepish today? 尼尔:好了,海伦,你今天为什么看上去这么不安? Helen: Ah, well... 海伦:嗯…… Neil: Yes? 尼尔:怎么了? Helen: Well, you know that book you lent me? 海伦:嗯,就是那本你借给我的书,你记得吧? Neil: My favourite book of all time–the original edition of The Private lives of the Greatest Cats in History? 尼尔:我最喜欢的书,那本原版《历史上最伟大的猫的私生活》? Helen: Yes. 海伦:对。 Neil: OK Helen, now you're looking very sheepish indeed, so you'd better hurry up and tell me what happened to it. 尼尔:海伦,现在你看起来真的非常不安,你最好快点告诉我那本书到底怎么了。 Helen: I dropped it. 海伦:我弄掉了。 Neil: You dropped it? Well I hope it's not damaged, otherwise I'll have to - 尼尔:弄掉了?希望并没有破损,要不然我就要…… Helen: ...in the river. 海伦:掉在了河里。 Neil: In the river! You dropped it in the river! 尼尔:掉进了河里!你把书掉进了河里! Helen: It was carried away, I couldn't get it out. 海伦:它被河水冲走了,我没能捞出来。 Neil: Oh no! 尼尔:哦不! Helen: I'm so sorry. That's why I am looking sheepish. 海伦:很抱歉。这就是我看上去窘迫的原因。 Neil: You should be looking even more sheepish than that. In fact, I expect you to look sheepish for several days. It was the best book in the world! 'Sheepish' doesn't do it justice... 尼尔:你应该看上去更不安才对。实际上,我希望你能不安几天的时间。那是世界上最棒的书!“不安”也不能挽回那本书了…… 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171112/510415.html
