yen

音标:/jen/

英英释义:

①The yen is the unit of currency used in Japan.【n.日元(日本货币单位)】

②If you have a yen to do something, you have a strong desire to do it.【n. 渴望;强烈的欲望;热望】

例句:

①She's got a part-time job for which she earns 2,000 yen a month.

她有一份月收入2,000日元的兼职工作。

②Mike had a yen to try cycling.

迈克非常想试试骑自行车。

He's a natural with any kind of engine but he has an unfortunate yen for speed.

他天生对各种发动机就非常在行,但却过分追求速度。

搭配:

在表示“ 渴望;强烈的欲望”时,它最常见的搭配是“have a yen to do sth”或者“have a yen for sth”

另外,在电影《傲慢与偏见》中出现的一个短语“hanker for sth”也可以表示“渴望; 热切希望”

例如:

I hanker for a simpler world. Is that a crime?

我向往简单安定。有错吗?---《唐顿庄园》

这两个表达都可以用在写作中,表示“想要做某事”,用来替代“want to do sth”

拓展:

①tighten one's belt 勒紧裤腰带;紧缩开支;节衣缩食

【If you have to tighten your belt, you have to spend less money and manage without things because you have less money than you used to have.】
