  1.休息室 ——“lounge”、“lobby”、“vestibule”或“foyer”。

  2.“wineshop”——“a cafe or tavern that specializes in serving wine”,专指供人喝酒、小憩之处,而中国人所说酒馆、酒楼、酒肆或酒家其实就是饭店、餐馆,英文都应是“restaurant”。

  3.购物商场——shopping mall, shopping store,shopping center

  4.“corporation”指“Groups of persons authorized to act as an individual,eg,for Business purposes”,实际上该词本身有总公司的意味,所以,group corp. 似乎group 多余。 group company 可用。

  11. Hi, Jim! You look pretty good today. Everybody at the office says hello - we're all pulling for you to pull through this operation and get back to work as soon as you can.

  12.This memo told me I was being transferred to Buffalo, where winter is really bad. I was worried when I saw people laughing at me, and I remembered it was April Fool's Day, and I realized my friends are pulling my leg.

  他说:这份通知说我要被调往Buffalo去工作。Buffalo那儿的冬天可真糟糕。我正发愁的时候看到人们都在笑我,我这才想起今天是愚人节,原来是朋友们在骗我跟我开玩笑。

  从这段话可以看出pull one's leg是跟某人开玩笑,或者是不带恶意的恶作剧。

  13.pull the plug. 其中的plug ,这是电线一端的插头,插进墙上的插座就能得到电力。Pull the plug,当然就是把插头从插座上拔出来,那就是切断电源,或者等于是关了某一电器用具。这是从字面上来解释pull the plug
