与“吸烟”有关的英语知识

我们在口头表达吸烟时常用到smoke,但它在英语里还有俚语意思为“内含大麻叶毒品的香烟”,因此商店里售卖普通香烟处的标志语一般是“Cigarettes”。

 

此外,smoke也可表示“烟雾、不实的事物”等意思,英语中还有很多跟smoke相关的词组短语:



1

Smoke-eater

消防队员,尤指森林灭火员

 

The smoke-eaters took a long time getting there.

消防队员们花了很长时间才赶到那儿


2

No smoke without fire

无风不起浪

 

A rumour circulated in the press about the royal couple, and two weeks later it was confirmed when they announced their divorce. There's no smoke without fire.

报刊上流传起关于这对皇家夫妇的传闻,两周后此事得到证实,他们宣布离婚,真是无风不起浪嘛。


3

Smoke like a chimney

烟瘾很大


John once smoked like a chimney, but he doesn't smoke now.

Smoke somebody out

1. 从某处获得消息:
He isn’t saying now,but she’ll smoke him out.

2. 引蛇出洞:

宽大政策让匪帮全部出洞自首投案了。


5

Smoke and mirrors

欺骗性行为

 

魔术师往往让观众们相信他能使得一个人突然不见,然后又突然出现。要使人产生这么样的幻觉,魔术师一般都是用烟和镜子作为手段。所以,smoke and mirrors就成了欺骗别人的常用语。

 

My opponent's plan is nothing but smoke and mirrors: he's simply pulled his numbers out of the air to make it look like he can balance the budget without new taxes.
