trapeze

n.(马戏团的)高空秋千,空中吊杠

音标:/trə'piːz/

英英释义:

A trapeze is a bar of wood or metal hanging from two ropes on which people in a circus swing and perform skilful movements.

例句:

①We swung across like two trapeze artists.

我们像两个荡秋千的好手一样纵身一跳。

这个词很高频,

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

fend for (oneself)

照料,照顾(自己)

英英释义:

If you have to fend for yourself, you have to look after yourself without relying on help from anyone else.

例句:

The woman and her young baby had been thrown out and left to fend for themselves.

这个女人和她年幼的婴儿被赶了出来,无人照管。

《金融时报》一篇题为 A race to vaccinate the developing world 也出现了这个表达:

这里再补充一个短语:fend off 挡开,避开(问题或人) 【If you fend off unwanted questions, problems, or people, you stop them from affecting you or defend yourself from them, but often only for a short time and without dealing with them completely.】

举个栗子:

He had struggled to pay off creditors but couldn't fend them off any longer.

他曾想方设法还债主的钱,但却再也躲不过他们了。

它还有一个意思,表示“挡住,抵挡(攻击) ”【If you fend off someone who is attacking you, you use your arms or something such as a stick to defend yourself from their blows.】

举个栗子:

He raised his hand to fend off the blow.

他抬起手来抵挡那一拳。
