You are cheap, 千萬別翻譯成「你這個賤人」

我們都知道

cheap是廉價的

所以當有人說

「You are cheap

」是什麼意思呢?

你很便宜?

或者是「你是賤人」?

一起來學習吧

其實,cheap還有小氣的,吝嗇的意思:

A "cheap person" is usually a person who doesn't like to spend money, especially someone who doesn't spend money in situations when he can and should.

通過英文解釋我們知道:

cheap表示:「吝嗇」、「不愿花錢」、「摳門兒」

Oh, please, Dad, just this once don't be cheap.

哦,求求你,爸爸,就這一次,別小氣嘛。

與cheap相關的常用表達,我們再來學習幾個:

dirt cheap

非常便宜

They're always selling off stuff like that dirt cheap.

他們總是以非常便宜的價格把類似那樣的東西處理掉。

cheap and cheerful

物美價廉的

There's a restaurant round the comer that serves cheap and cheerful food.

街角處有家飯店,出售價廉物美的飯菜。

cheap and nasty

便宜貨

她的鞋在我看來質量低劣。

talk is cheap

光說沒有用

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand.

空談廉價,供過于求。
