slither

音标:/'slɪðə/

英英释义:

①If you slither somewhere, you slide along in an uneven way.【v.(摇摇晃晃地)滑行,滑动】

②If an animal such as a snake slithers, it moves along in a curving way.【v.(蛇等)蜿蜒而行】

例句:

①Robert lost his footing and slithered down the bank.

罗伯特失足滑下了河岸。

②The snake slithered into the water.

蛇滑入了水中。

其实这个单词比较好记忆,虽然有两个意思,但它们是相互关联的。而且这个单词的开头是“s”,很容易就可以联想到“蛇”蜿蜒前行~

Romain Gary的小说 Promise at Dawn 也出现了这个表达:
