“labour”作为动词,还有一个比较常见的意思,表示“一再重申;反复说明 ”【If you labour a point or an argument, you keep making the same point or saying the same thing, although it is unnecessary.】

例如:

I don't want to labour the point but there it is.

我不想反复重申,但还是不得不说。

同时,作为不可数名词,还有一个比较小众的意思,表示“分娩;临盆 ”【Labour is the last stage of pregnancy, in which the baby is gradually pushed out of the womb by the mother.】

例如:

I thought the pains meant I was going into labour .

我还以为这些疼痛意味着我要生了呢。

同时“deliver ”作为动词可以表示“接生(婴儿) ”【When someone delivers a baby, they help the woman who is giving birth to the baby.】

【熟词生义】

例如:

Her husband had to deliver the baby himself.

她丈夫不得不自己接生孩子。

说到“分娩”,这里顺便分享五个关于“怀孕”的表达:

have a bun in the oven 怀孕,身怀六甲

(这是一个比较委婉的表达,字面意思是:烤炉里有面包,也是一个“informal”的用法,只需了解即可~)

be in the (pudding) club 怀孕,肚子大了

conceive v. 怀孕

【熟词生义】

【When a woman conceives, she becomes pregnant.】

例如:

About one in six couples has difficulty conceiving .

大约1/6的夫妻有受孕困难。

carry v.怀孕;怀上(孩子)

【熟词生义】

例如:

There are many theories that claim to be able to predict whether you're carrying a boy or a girl.

有许多理论声称能够预测胎儿的性别。

电影《忠犬八公的故事》也出现了这个表达:

expect v.怀孕

【If you say that a woman is expecting a baby, or that she is expecting, you mean that she is pregnant.】

例如:
