這些不是贊語 -

 

How to recognize put downs?

 

,英語還有一種大家肯定要 BE UP ON 的句子。這裡就順便談談這種有關 DOWN 的句子吧。


北美英語譏嘲叫做 「put downs」 「放下來」)。這是一個有趣的名稱。別人把您這麼輕輕地「放下來」,您哪能意識到這些「放下詞」其實可能是個譏嘲呢?「Put downs」 的一個特點是句子的前一半通常是褒語而後一半是貶語,因此表面上看似乎是贊語的句子仔細聽候會發現它其實是一種「挖苦」的譏嘲。(也就是這個原因我們在英語相聲常有看到這些 「put downs」。)


下面介紹的一些常見的 「put downs」,網友聽到時必須明白,對您譏嘲的人未必懷有惡意(這很可能是朋友之間的戲謔,是否蓄意冒犯得先看言者和聽者的友情和關係才能斷定),不過要是您想要對別人這麼說,那您可要小心,這些有可能冒犯,不客氣的話是不可以對法官,警察,上司或顧客說,或輕易對陌生人說的
