迷你情景对话:出乎意料

2013-02-22 11:57

导语:你爱英语吗?你知道不同的趣味英语表达吗?跟着外语教育网的小编一起来看看吧!

出乎意料

A: The trouble is not that. It is that he may suddenly remember something I promised him a couple of weeks ago, out of a clear blue sky. Then he complains that I have gone back on my words.

麻烦不在这儿,而在于他突然出人意料地想起两三周前我对他的承诺。然后就抱怨我言而无信。

B: Does he do that with his Dad? I mean, does he complain things to his father?

对他爸爸也这样吗?我是说他向他爸爸抱怨吗?

A: He never does, and in fact, he seldom communicates with him.

从不,事实上是他几乎不和他交谈。

B: But didn’t you say that his Dad takes him under his wings?

但是你不是说他的爸爸总是宠着他吗?

A: Yes, I did. He only takes side with him. He seldom asks what Dick is doing.

对,我是这样说的。不过他只是偏袒迪克,而很少过问他在干什么。

地道表达:

out of a clear blue sky

解词释义:

此语的字面意思是“从晴朗的蓝色天空中突然出现”,比喻为“在毫无预兆,事先没有打招呼的情况下突然发生”。其英文解释如下:if something happens out of the blue, it happens suddenly and you are not expecting it,它作为副词性短语。

支持范例:

Then one day, completely out of a clear blue sky , I had a letter from her.

后来有一天我突然接到她的一封来信。

The invasion came out of a clear blue sky and caught everyone off guard.

入侵突然袭来,弄得每个人措手不及。

拓展讲解:

此语也可以用作out of the blue。

支持范例:

The news was a great shock to me; it came absolutely out of the blue.

这个消息,对我是一个很大的打击,简直太突如其来了。

Jim was walking along the street, when a car came out of the blue and hit him.

吉姆在街上行走,冷不防一辆车闯出来,把他撞倒在地。

She arrived out of the blue.

她没有事先告知就来了。

The news of her marriage came out of the blue.
