关于“pore”,这里想再拓展几点。

作为名词,它本身表示“(皮肤上的)毛孔”或者“(植物表面的)气孔

还有一个比较常见的短语:every pore 极度;非常 【You can say that someone has a certain quality or emotion coming from every pore to emphasize the strength of that quality or emotion.】

举个栗子:

①She oozes sexuality from every pore .

她浑身上下每个毛孔都散发着性感。

(这里更倾向于取“本义”哦~)

②Waves of misery penetrated every pore .

痛苦深彻骨髓。
