考研英语阅读资料:哪些英文短语让你抓狂?

"Free gift" - a gift is free. Even worse is "free giftwith purchase"

“免费的礼物”——不要钱的礼物。“买就送”更糟糕。

"Pre-owned" - This implies that someone has donethe owning for you. The word is "used".

“二手货”——这暗示在这之前别人已经用过了。这个词=“用过的”。

Literally - "literally, there is smoke coming out of myears". No. If there were smoke coming out of yourears you would be dead and unable to speak. Figuratively, literally drives me crazy.

从字面上来说——“从字面意义上看,有烟从我耳朵里冒出来了”。不是的。如果有烟从你耳朵里冒出来的话,你早就死了,根本不可能还会说话。象征性地,“字面意义上的来说”这个词让我很抓狂。

Irregardless. Is this less or more regardless than regardless? Irregardless.

你觉得说这个词就能比不管怎样更不管怎样吗?(实际上没有Irregardless这个词,只是人们总习惯这样说以此来说明“不管怎样”)

Obviously (and similar words) used in textbooks and lectures. If it's obvious to the reader, then he/she knows it is obvious. If not, then you have insulted your readers.

“显而易见的”(或是其他相似的词)都在教科书和讲座中用到过。如果对于读者来说,这是显而易见的,那么ta就知道这个“显然易见”。如果对于ta来说不是这样,那你就是侮辱了你的读者。

Actually. I have never actually seen a sentence that could be improved with the use of the word "actually".

“事实上”。事实上,我从来没有看见哪个句子能因为“事实上”这个词而有什么特别好的效果。

Like when used as filler. I once overheard two girls (teens) speaking. One said "I know he likelikes me, but does he, like, like me like me or does he just, like, like me?"

把like作为一个填充词。我以前偶尔听到两个女孩儿(十多岁的)的谈话。其中一个说:“我知道他好像喜欢我,但是他是吗,貌似像我一样喜欢我或者他只是我想像中那样喜欢我。”(理解起来太崩溃了)

"I don't want to be rude but...." If you don't want to be rude, stop talking. If you do want tobe rude, then start talking but without this phrase.

“我不想那么无礼的,可是……”如果你不想那么无礼,那就不要说了。如果你想无礼,那就直接来别废话。

"I'm not racist but...." This phrase, in my experience, is only used to preface a raciststatement.

“我不是种族主义者,但是……”这个句子,从我的经历来看,只会用在一个种族主义者的言论的开头。
