  • 7月3号,在百度AI开发者大会上,李彦宏在演讲时,一现场观众持一矿泉水瓶,淡定上台后泼了李彦宏。

    李彦宏一阵懵之后,脱口而出一句:What’s your problem? 之后现场一阵寂静,随后爆发出尴尬的掌声…...之后李彦宏继续淡定演讲。该男子被保安控制并移交公安机关。

    针对于百度,因为之前的类似于“魏则西”等种种事件,不少人多多少少都有一些情绪。不过这些不是我们讨论的重点,我们还是来看看这句英文在这种场景下到底什么意思,以及更多相关的表达应该是什么。

    What's your problem?
    This is a phrase that you can use to talk to someone who's acting rude.
    当有人表现很粗鲁的时候,你就可以给他讲这一句.

    "What's your problem?" means "Why are you acting that way?”

    我搞什么?你才是犯浑的那个人。

    其他情况和用法
    另外一个常用的句子就是Is there a problem here? 意思是:这有什么状况吗?比如你看到一群人围着一个女生,这时候你上前帮忙,就可以讲这一句。

    另外,What is your problem?和What's your question? 意思不一样,后者的意思是:你的问题是什么?

    最后,当某人生病时候,我们不说What is your problem? 我们只讲What's wrong?

  • 笨老撕今天和大家聊聊“多喝热水”这个话题。我们可能习惯喝热水,外国人大都习惯喝冷水,这更多是个人的喜好和选择。

    我们重点来聊聊这个词组到底如何用英语表达比较合适。说到“多喝热水”,我们第一反应会是drink more hot water. 但是严格来讲,这里用drink和hot water都不合适。

    先说hot water。“热水”和hot water 两个概念是不对等的。中文我们讲热水,其实是开水凉过之后的温水,对应的英文应该叫做warm water. 而开水的英文则叫做hot water或者boiled water(煮开的水)。

    标准100摄氏度(100 degree centigrade)是开水的温度,但是我们都知道由于地理因素,气压不同,不同地方的开水温度可能会有差异。能查到的我们国家饮用开水的标准是92°或以上。

    所以在国外,当我们说hot water的时候,老外会认为是一个温度很高的水,多用于冲泡茶叶、咖啡等。所以我们需要的是warm water,而不是hot water. 当然你也可以要hot water自己来晾凉,但是,真的会很烫……

    我们再说drink,是“喝”这个概念的总称。但是,不同的“喝”在英文中有不同的动词,比如大口喝、抿一口喝、狂饮等。

    说到这,大家应该理解说是,drink more hot water并不符合大多数人喝水的习惯。如果是真的要喝hot water,那么就要“小口抿”,日常一点的说法叫做“吸溜”…… 所以“多喝热水”最正确的英文我们叫做drink more warm water.

    最后就是一些英文中表示不同方式“喝”的动词,分享给大家。

    sip v. 抿一口喝
    Sip hot water frequently throughout the day. It helps to your health.
    全天时不时地抿几口热水。这样对健康有益。

    guzzle v. /ˈɡʌzəl/ 狂饮,一口干
    He just lost his job and guzzled beers one after another.
    他刚刚丢了工作,于是一个接一个地狂饮啤酒。

    slug v. 满满地喝一口(烈酒)
    He had a slug of vodka before going onto the stage.
    在上台前他喝了一大口伏特加。
    注:slug可做名词,也可做动词

  • 日常交流中,当别人问你住哪,如果住的是酒店,我们第一反应可能会说I live in a hotel. 但是,老外听到这句回答的时候,心里非常有可能在想:Why do you live in a hotel instead of your house?

    其实这种场景下用live是非常不地道的,因为live指的是长期的居住,用stay这个词才是最地道的,因为我们绝大多数时候住酒店,是临时住。


    下面笨老撕语音带着大家来学习live和stay的区别,以及更多不一样的用法。


    Live in 居住
    have your home somewhere
    在某地安家

    Stay 短暂停留
    be in a place for a short time as a visitor

    A: Where are you now?
    你现在在哪呢?
    B: I am staying in a hotel and I’ll be back home next week.
    我住在一家酒店。下周就回家了。


    Live v. 享受生活的乐趣
    I want to live a little before I settle down.
    在安定下来之前我要好好享受一下生活。

    Stay n. 逗留时间
    I am gonna have a short stay in Suzhou on my way to Shanghai.
    在去上海的路上,我会在苏州做短暂停留。

    Live life to the full 过得很充实
    She enjoys traveling to different places to live her life to the full.
