第六部 第十四課: threads , load up

 
  • 今天 Larry 和李華下課以後一起去吃午飯,李華會學到兩個常用語: threadsload up
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua, those are nice threads you're wearing.
  • Threads?那不是 「縫衣服用的線」 嗎?哎喲,Larry, 你是說我連衣裙開線了啊?
  • No, no. Threads, when used in plural, is another word for clothes. I was just telling you that you are wearing nice clothes.
  • 哦~,原來 thread 用做複數 threads,就可以代表 「衣服」.這倒挺合理的喔,因為衣服就是用線織成的嘛!你剛才說 these are nice threads, 原來就是誇我的連衣裙漂亮啊!
  • That's right!
  • 謝謝你,Larry, 哎,其實啊,這件連衣裙挺舊的了. Larry,要是我說一件衣服,是不是要用單數 thread?
  • No. It's always threads. I think that's because even one piece of clothing is made of many threads.
  • 說得也是喔,即使一件衣服,也是用很多很多線做成的,所以啊,還是要用複數 - threads.
  • So, Li Hua, let me test you. If I say, "I went shopping yesterday and bought lots of threads", what does that mean?
  • 這麼簡單的句子,還要考我?你啊是說 「我昨天買了很多衣服」.Larry,你真的買了好多衣服呀?
  • No, I was just giving you an example. I don't go shopping for threads.
  • 你啊,老是穿牛仔褲加T恤衫的,怎麼也不換換樣子嘛?
  • What's wrong with the threads I'm wearing? Oh, please, Li Hua, my threads are just fine -- Jeans and T-shirt are comfortable.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, not many people in the cafeteria. That's the benefit of coming late.
  • 來晚了人少是沒錯,可是好東西可能也都給吃完了啊.哎,Larry, 我知道你餓了,可是你也不能一下子拿那麼多嘛,你吃得完嗎?
  • I won't have time to eat dinner until late, so I'm trying to load up on food now.
  • 喔,你今天晚飯要很晚才能吃啊.疑?可是你說什麼 load up on food?那是什麼意思啊?
  • To load, load up on something is to get a lot of it, usually so that you can store some of it for later.
  • 哦~,我明白了.你是想啊午飯多吃點,晚上啊就不會太餓了.疑? Larry, 那除了說吃的東西, load up on 還可以用在別的地方嗎?
  • Of course. Do you remember the storm we had last summer? Well, people were worried about losing power, so they loaded up on batteries before the storm.
  • 去年夏天的那場暴風雨啊?我當然記得.就是嘛,當時大家特別擔心停電,所以買了好多電池 - We loaded up on batteries.
  • Yup. Also, Li Hua, we can load up on sleep, too.
  • 哦,除了可以說 load up on food, load up on batteries, 我們還可以說 load up on sleep, 意思就是多睡覺、多休息。
  • If you load up on sleep and vitamins, you shouldn't get sick very easily.
  • 是沒錯,多休息、多吃維生素,我們就不容易生病了.哇,Larry, 我看你裝了整整兩盤菜哎,要是我像你這樣 load up on food ,我啊,肯定早就發胖了。
  • All right, Li Hua, what are you trying to say? You know I don't load up on food like this everyday!
  • 那倒也是!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華從 Larry 那兒學到兩個常用語,一個是: threads,在口語裡表示「衣服」.另一個是: load up on something,意思是「大量儲存某樣東西」,比如 load up on food,就表示「吃得很多」。
