1.muscle
n.力量;实力;威信

英英释义:

If you say that someone has muscle, you mean that they have power and influence, which enables them to do difficult things.

例句:

①Eisenhower used his muscle to persuade Congress to change the law.

艾森豪威尔用他的影响力说服国会修改了该项法律。

②In one town, all the women were urged to remove their money from the banks on an allotted day, to demonstrate women's financial muscle.

在某市,所有的女性都被建议在指定日期从银行取走她们的钱,以展示女性群体的经济实力。

拓展:

这里补充一个短语“flexes its muscles”显示实力;小试身手【If a group, organization, or country flexes its muscles, it does something to impress or frighten people, in order to show them that it has power and is considering using it.】

例如:

The Fair Trade Commission has of late been flexing its muscles, cracking down on cases of corruption.

公平交易委员会最近在显示威力,严厉打击腐败事件。

2.spoils
n.战利品;因成功获得的好处

英英释义:

按照军事惯例,胜者正在分享战利品。

②Competing warlords and foreign powers scrambled for political spoils.

相互争斗的军阀及外国列强们正在争夺政治上的收益。

拓展:

注意,spoil表示“战利品;因成功获得的好处”时,一定要用复数形式。

除此之外,这里再讲一个与“spoil”相关的短语:too many cooks spoil the broth 人多添乱,人多反而碍事【said to mean that something may not be successful if too many people try to do it at the same time.】

例如:

There is an old adage that too many cooks spoil the broth.

3.period

拓展:

“period”除了可以表示“到此为止;不再说了”,还可以表示“句号”;

【补充】

‘逗号’的表达是comma

‘分号’的表达是semicolon

“period”还可以表示“月经”,这是比较日常的表达,正式的表达是“menstruation”

电影《当幸福来敲门》也出现了这个表达:
