英英释义:

这里再补充一个常见表达:on the trot 接连地;持续地【If something happens several times on the trot, it happens that number of times without a break.】

举个栗子:

She lost five games on the trot .

她接连输了 5 场比赛。

看到这个表达,我联想到另一个同义表达:on a roll 表示 连连成功;连交好运 【If someone is on a roll, they are having great success which seems likely to continue.】

举个栗子:

I made a name for myself and I was on a roll , I couldn't see anything going wrong.

我靠自己的能力成名了,接二连三地获得成功,我觉得一切似乎一帆风顺。
