  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • My neighbors are still making a bunch of noise. I wish that they would just knock it off so that I could get a few hours of sleep. I'm exhausted.
  • 你的新鄰居還是那麼吵啊?你只睡幾個小時當然會感覺疲倦啦!疑?你說希望他們怎麼啦? Knock it off?那是什麼意思?
  • Knock it off. When somebody says "knock it off" it means that they want you to stop whatever you're doing, most likely because what you're doing is annoying.
  • 哦~, knock it off 就是要人停止做某件事,特別啊是讓人討厭的事.你的鄰居啊這麼吵,所以你希望他們安靜下來,別再吵了。
  • Exactly. They have been yelling, singing, and watching TV nonstop for days. I would give anything if they (would) just knock it off.
  • 整天都在大吼大叫,又是唱歌,又是看電視的啊,難怪你會受不了.那你有沒有跟他們說過叫他們別再吵了啊?
  • I've thought about it, but I don't want to get into an argument with them. I've even thought about calling the landlord.
  • 你不想和他們吵,所以你還沒說啊?也許你說的對,先和你的房東談一談,讓他去告訴你的鄰居。
  • But they'll probably guess that I'm the one who complained.
  • 就算他們猜到是你去向房東抱怨的,那又怎麼樣?你管他們生不生你的氣?
  • You're right, I guess it doesn't matter if they're mad at me as long as they knock it off.
  • 就是啊,只要啊他們不再吵了,誰管他們高興還是生氣啊?我的鄰居啊經常會把他的垃圾丟在我家門口呢。
  • Did you tell him to knock it off?
  • 當然囉,我是很客氣請他不要再把垃圾放在我家門口.他現在啊不再那麼做了。
  • That's great. I wish my neighbors were as cooperative.
  • 你啊要鄰居合作,你就得跟他們講,客氣點就行了嘛.Larry,我覺得你很愛抱怨哎.也許啊你也應該 knock it off。
  • Very funny, Li Hua.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Larry,你好像很睏哎,是不是剛起床啊?
  • I must have really conked out. I fell asleep on the couch a few hours ago. I was so tired that my neighbors couldn't keep me awake any longer.
  • 啊~?你在沙發上睡了幾個小時,連你那鄰居也沒有把你吵醒啊.那你肯定睡得很沉. Larry,你說你 conked out?是睡得很死的意思吧?
  • Right. To conk out is slang for falling into a deep sleep.
  • 你看,我猜對了吧!我啊知道你過去幾天有多累,能夠好好睡一覺啊總是好的。
  • Yeah, it was wonderful to finally conk out for a few hours. I really needed the sleep.
  • 我也希望我能像你一樣, conk out a few hours - 睡上幾個小時.可惜啊我還不能睡;我還有好多功課要做呢。
  • Maybe you could conk out early tonight and do your homework in the morning before class.
  • 啊?你要我早點去睡,明天早上再起來做功課啊?不行不行,我啊如果還有功課沒做完,我是睡不著的。
  • You're a little too conscientious, Li Hua. Sometimes, you have to relax and take care of yourself.
  • 你覺得我太認真了啊?別人也是這麼說哎.看來我真應該放鬆一點喔. (yawn),好吧,那我就去睡了, I'll try to conk out now。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 李華今天學到了兩個常用語.第一個是: to knock it off,意思就是「要一個人停止做一件事」,通常是令人討厭的事.另一個常用語是: to conk out,就是「睡的很深、很沉」的意思。
