跟“牛”相关的英文表达

在英语中有很多与“牛”相关的有趣俚语,下面我们一起看看吧!

have a cow

乍一看这个俚语,

相信很多小伙伴都会按字面意思,

翻译成“有一头奶牛”,

但这和正确答案风马牛不相及。

其实 have a cow 的正确意思是:

大惊小怪、激动、生气

就像牛脾气一样。

这个句式因为《辛普森一家》流行起来的,

里面的Bart超爱说这一句:

Don’t have a cow! 别生气,别大惊小怪

I thought he was going to have a cow when I told him I'd lost his key.

当我告诉他我丢了钥匙时,我以为他会大发雷霆的。

a bull in a china shop

这里 china 是小写,指的是“瓷器”,

这句话从字面翻译过来,

意思就是“一只公牛进了瓷器店”。

如果一头喷着鼻息、怒气冲冲的公牛

闯进摆满精致瓷器的店里,

那情况肯定会非常糟糕

所以 a bull in a china shop是用来形容:

笨手笨脚的人,鲁莽闯祸的人

We told her it was a delicate situation but she went into the meeting like a bull in a china shop.

我们告诉她情况非常微妙,但她开会时还是冒冒失失的。

take the bull by the horns

字面上的意思是“捉住公牛的角”,

这是多么大胆的行为啊,

所以这个表达的意思就是:

当机立断,大胆应对困难

Why don't you take the bull by the horns and tell him to leave?

你为什么不当机立断,直接让他离开?

春节就要来啦!
