The script of this programme 本节目台词
Producer/Presenter: John Escolme
John: Hello, this is Real English from BBC Learning English, I’m John
Jean: And I’m Jean. Hello!
John: In Real English, we look at words and phrases that you might not find in your dictionary.
John: Today’s word is swig S-W-I-G swig
Jean: I might say can I have a swig of your water?
Jean: 原来swig的意思就是很快的拿起来喝一口什么东西。你可以说to take a swig 或者to have a swig，或者干脆就可以光说swig.
John: We use the word a lot when talking about alcohol too – you might hear something like ‘I’ll have a quick swig of beer’ – or ‘he was in the pub swigging wine’. You can use it any time when you’re talking about drinking something.
Jean: 原来swig这个词也是经常用来形容喝酒的，比如“I’ll have a quick swig of beer”“那我就很快地来口啤酒吧”。不过这是个非常随便的用法，并不适合在正式场合的时候使用。
John: Let’s listen to some examples.
A: Would you like some juice?
B: Oh I’m OK thanks. I’m not very thirsty – I’ll just take a swig of yours if that’s all right.
A: That beer looks really nice.
B: Do you want to try it? Here, have a swig
John: Actually all this talking is hurting my throat. Can I have a swig of your water?
Jean: Of course – in fact my throat is a bit dry too – I think I’ll have a quick swig too.
John: And er, do you have any plans after we finish the programme, pres?
Jean: Well, actually I’m going to meet my friend in the pub. He’s in there now, probably swigging beer and reading the paper while he waits for me to arrive.
John: Oh I’d love a swig of beer right now.
拿起来喝一口什么东西的意思。And that’s all we have time for today.
John: Yes, you’ve been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English – we’ll see you next time.
