Ball这个词人人都认识,就是球的意思。但在日常表达里,它的用法却不止于此。大开眼界——你所不知道的ball短语  1. The little girl had a ball at school today. 这个小女孩今天在学校参加了一个舞会。  在上面这个句子里,ball的意思是“舞会”。  另外,常见的短语on the ball 通常表示“有知识,有才华,懂行,办事利索”等意思。例如:  2. He is a teacher who is really on the ball. 他是个了不起的老师。  那么,由此类推,have nothing on the ball就肯定是“没有才华,办事不利”的意思了。  a student who has nothing on the ball 学得一塌糊涂的学生   有时候,我们还会用ball这个词来指代某件事情或者某个任务,比如:  3. I am glad you have started the ball rolling. 很高兴你把这事推动起来了。  4. The ball is in your court now. 现在球已到你那边了。(意即得由你做决定了)  最后再补充一点,我们知道fireball是“火球”的意思,在日常表达中其实也常常引申为“成功、热情、精力旺盛”之意。例如:  5. I hope John will join us, he is a fireball (or he is a ball of fire). 我希望约翰能加入我们,他是个精力旺盛的人。 /201003/99102

你知道W.C.(厕所)是怎么来的吗?很早以前,厕所Toilet里都有水箱water closet, 人们一提到water closet就想到了toilet,因此water closet就成了toilet的代名词。后来为了方便,人们就用water closet的开头字母W.C.来代替toilet。如果你想“Go to W.C.”,你可以委婉地说:“I want to wash my hands.”告诉别人说要去W.C.,意思就是说“我要去拉屎撒尿蹲茅坑”。这种很粗俗的表达方式是英美等国一二百年前使用的。在中国传入多年,许多中国人都知道WC是公共厕所的英文简称,但实际上在国外,WC已经在几年前消失了,取而代之的是Toilet,所以会爆出老外不识WC的笑话。 WC词义本身与Toilet区别不大,但是从修辞上说,前者给人的印象是简陋、不太卫生,而后者非但有洁净、舒适的感觉,而且还可以在里面梳妆打扮。Toilet这个词来源于法语,就连法语“香水”一词(l’eaudutoilet)也和Toilet有关(点击查看:时尚扫盲,香水是厕所里的水?),可见还是很有高雅的感觉。文雅的翻法把Toilet译作“公共洗手间”。WC的意思易明,所以曾被广泛采用。但是由于人人皆知WC所指为何,因此有些人认为不雅,便以其他较含蓄的字眼来替代,如lavatory,restroom,bathroom,toilet等字,都可以用来指厕所。在一般公众场所,厕所向例以性别区分,男用的多写上men,或gent's,女用的则写上women或ladies'。在外国人口中,WC一词基本已消失;但在很多以英语为基础外语的地方却还保留着,因为易于上口,一听之后便不会忘记,这可以算是语言上的一种特色。所以,下次在老外面前,想要去洗手间,咱也得文雅点,可不能说“我要去W.C.”了啊。

Kaylee: do you want to go out for dinner tonight?Nathan: sure. Have you got anywhere in mind?K: I'm starving, so maybe we could go somewhere with large portions.N: that Italian restaurant in the city centre always has large portions. Do you want to go there?K: I'm not really in the mood for Italian, actually. I was thinking of something a bit spicy.N: if you want spicy food, then I'd recommend going to a Thai, Indian or Chinese restaurant. How about that Chinese buffet on Cowley Road?K: I really like that restaurant; you get a lot for your money there. But, they've westernized their food, so it's not actually that spicy.N: you're right. Most of their dishes have sweet sauces. We could try that Indian restaurant just down the road from us.K: the Taj? They're a bit expensive, but they do serve large portions of very hot food.N: the Taj it is then.K: shall we bring our own bottle of wine to save some money?N: they'll still charge us a corkage fee.K: that's right. It'll probably work out to be about the same then anyway.N: don't worry about money. I'll treat you tonight.K: are you sure? We could go Dutch.N: no, I'll pay. It's my turn anyway. You paid last time.K: I won't argue with that! Let's go! /09/83768
