习语:a hen-pecked husband知识点津:hen-pecked表示“受老婆虐待或怕老婆的人”,所以a hen-pecked husband指的是“怕老婆的人”,和中文的“妻管严”类似。持范例:He is a hen-pecked husband and his wife wears the trousers on all the matters. 他是个“妻管严”,家里事无巨细全由老婆说了算。 He never does anything without asking his wife first—hes a completely hen-pecked husband. 他做任何事都要首先请示他老婆—他是个十足的“妻管严”。 Yes, everyone knows he is a hen-pecked husband. 对呀,大家都知道他家有母老虎。迷你对话:A :Does your wife work?你的妻子工作吗?B :Yes, she does. She works at home.是的,她在家工作。A :Oh, I understand. She cooks, cleans and takes care of children. Is that right?哦,我明白了。他做饭,打扫屋子,看孩子,对吗?B :Oh, no. Most of the time I do these things. She is a writer.哦,不。大多数时间是我干这些活。她是个作家。A :You are reallya hen-pecked husband.你可真是个“妻管严”呀。词海拾贝:take care of:照顾,照料I ached to be of an age to take care of myself.我巴望能到自食其力的年龄。 I ll take care of the affairs of office. 我来处理办公室的日常事务。 /201204/178809

Subject:I smell a rat. 迷你对话A : Wait! I smell a rat!等等!我感到有点不对劲。B: What? Oh, we are in the wrong classroom!什么,哦,我们走错了教室。 地道表达 smell a rat 1. 解词释义Smell a rat中的rat是指“老鼠”。老鼠在人们心中是个鬼鬼祟祟的样子,如果你问到了老鼠的味道,你会感觉到恶心,心里发毛,同时还可能想你的东西是否被他咬过。这种感觉和俚语中的smell the rat的意思相近了,意思是“让人觉得不对劲”“发觉可疑”“感觉事情蹊跷,不对劲”。其英文解释为:to suspect that something is wrong; to sense that someone has caused something wrong。 2. 拓展例句e.g. Why are the police looking for me? I smell a rat.警察为什么在找我?我觉得事有蹊跷。e.g. The old man would probably smell a rat if he were to claim them now.马上去要,恐怕老头子多心。e.g. Every time Joe visits me, one of my ash trays disappears. Im beginning to smell a rat.每次乔来看我,我就有一只烟灰缸不见了。我开始起了疑心。e.g. The teacher did not smell a rat until he found Jack kept looking downwards at his own feet instead of at his own paper.直到老师发现杰克不在看自己的卷子,而老盯着自己的脚看时,他才发现有问题。 /201401/271566
