Perusal

Everything I need is on the ground

拓展:

“ground”是一个很灵活的小词,它有很多的意思和短语。

我想挑几个经典的短语和熟词生义进行解析:

on the grounds of 理由;根据

【If something is grounds for a feeling or action, it is a reason for it. If you do something on the grounds of a particular thing, that thing is the reason for your action.】

例如:

Owen was against it, on the grounds of expense.

欧文因费用问题对此表示反对。

《经济学人》一篇关于堕胎的文章 Roe-ing back 也出现了这个表达:
4
【写作推荐】

这个词可以替代我们用烂了的“a reason for”

这里再补充四种关于“原因”类的表达:

① be a source of 是.....的一个原因/根源

【the cause of a problem, or the place where it began】

例如:

Her son was a constant source of worry to her.

②a justification for 是....的(正当)原因

【a reason why something is correct and morally right】

例如:

What’s the justification for paying nurses so little?

③be attributable to 可归因于…的,可归结于…的

【If something is attributable to an event, situation, or person, it is likely that it was caused by that event, situation or person.】

例如:

10,000 deaths a year from chronic lung disease are attributable to smoking.

④a recipe for 是……原因

【If you say that something is a recipe for a particular situation, you mean that it is likely to result in that situation.】

例如:

What’s her recipe for success?

她的成功之策是什么?


hit the ground running 旗开得胜,快马加鞭,全力以赴

【to immediately work hard and successfully at a new activity.】

例如:

①Many times, they truly need someone who can hit the ground running.

许多时候他们真正需要的是一个能立即快马加鞭地开展工作的人。

②He intends to hit the ground running if and when he wins that contract.

一旦他赢得了那份合同,他就打算马上全力以赴开展工作。

美剧《无所作为》也出现了这个表达:

Well, murder and rape. He hit the ground running.
5
Taylor Swift的歌the 1 也出现了这个表达:
6
再补充一个【熟词生义】,作为动词可以表示:罚(儿童)不能出门;禁足【When parents ground a child, they forbid them to go out and enjoy themselves for a period of time, as a punishment.】

例如:

Thompson grounded him for a month, and banned television.

汤普森罚他一个月不能出门,并禁止看电视。

【ps:这个意思十分常见,大家一定要记牢哦~】


Yeah what goes up it must come down

拓展:

这里补充关于“come down”的意思:表示“落下,降落 ”【If something comes down, it falls to the ground.】

例如:

The cold rain came down.

下起了冰冷的雨。

这里看一道选择题:

7
这题应该选则B,“come down on ”是一个固定用法,表示“痛斥;斥责;严格对待 ”【If you come down on someone, you criticize them severely or treat them strictly.】

例如:

If Douglas came down hard enough on him, Dale would rebel.

如果道格拉斯对戴尔太过严厉,他就会反抗。

这里再补充一个短语:come down with ,表示“染上,得了(病) ”【If you come down with an illness, you get it.】

例如:

Thomas came down with chickenpox at the weekend.

托马斯周末染上了水痘。

所以“come down”后面的介词不同,取的意思也有很大的差别哦~


I'm way up in the clouds

拓展:

“cloud”作为动词可以表示把…搞糊涂;使难以理解;使无法正确判断

英英释义:

If you say that something clouds your view of a situation, you mean that it makes you unable to understand the situation or judge it properly.

例句:

①Perhaps anger had clouded his vision, perhaps his judgment had been faulty.

可能是愤怒蒙蔽了他的眼睛,也可能是他判断有误。

②In his latter years religious mania clouded his mind.

晚年的时候,对宗教的狂热让他丧失心智。

注:mania /'meɪnɪə/ 狂热;癖好

拓展:

这里拓展两个三个关于“cloud”的短语:

①have one's head in the clouds 心不在焉;耽于空想

【If you say that someone has their head in the clouds, you are criticizing them because they are ignoring or are unaware of the problems associated with a situation.】

②on cloud nine 极为快乐,乐不可支

【If you say that someone is on cloud nine, you are emphasizing that they are very happy.】

例如:

When Michael was born I was on cloud nine.

迈克尔出生的时候,我都乐得找不着北了。

再补充一个很常见的短语“every cloud has a silver lining”黑暗中总有一线光明 【If you say that every cloud has a silver lining, you mean that every sad or unpleasant situation has a positive side to it.】

例如:

As they say, every cloud has a silver lining. We have drawn lessons from the decisions taken.

正如他们所说,黑暗中总有一线光明,我们已从所作的决定中汲取了教训。

我们可以把这个表达用到写作上,用于表达“积极乐观应对困难的状况”~
