一些关于green的表达

0

Green is an important color in nature. It is the color of grass and the leaves on trees. It is also the color of most growing plants.绿色是自然界中一种重要的颜色。它是草和树上叶子的颜色。它也是大多数正在生长的植物的颜色。

Sometimes, the word green means young, fresh and growing. Sometimes, it describes something that is not yet ripe or finished.有时,绿色意味着年轻、新鲜和成长。有时,它用来描述还没有成熟或完成的东西。

For example, a greenhorn is someone who has no experience, who is new to a situation.  In the fifteenth century, a greenhorn was a young cow or ox whose horns had not yet developed.  A century or so later, a greenhorn was a soldier who had not yet had any experience in battle. By the eighteenth century, a greenhorn had the meaning it has today – a person who is new in a job.例如,greenhorn是指没有经验的新手。在十五世纪,greenhorn是指角还没有长出来的小母牛或公牛。大约一个世纪后,greenhorn是指还没有任何战斗经验的士兵。到了18世纪,greenhorn就有了今天的意思——刚开始工作的人。

About one hundred years ago, greenhorn was a popular expression in the American west.  Old-timers used it to describe a man who had just arrived from one of the big cities back east. The greenhorn lacked the skills he would need to live in the hard, rough country.大约一百年前,greenhorn是美国西部的一个流行表达。老一辈的人用这个词来形容刚从东部某个大城市来的人。新手缺乏在艰苦、崎岖的乡村生活所需的技能。

Someone who has the ability to grow plants well is said to have a green thumb. The expression comes from the early nineteen hundreds.能把植物种得很好的人被称为有园艺才能。这个表达来自19世纪早期。

A person with a green thumb seems to have a magic touch that makes plants grow quickly and well. You might say that the woman next door has a green thumb if her garden continues to grow long after your plants have died.一个有园艺拇指的人似乎有一种魔力,能使植物长得又快又好。如果隔壁的女人在你的植物死了很久之后,她的花园还在长高,你可能会说她是园艺高手。

The Green Revolution is the name given  some years ago to the development of new kinds of rice and other grains. The new plants produced much larger crops.  The Green Revolution was the result of hard work by agricultural scientists who had  green thumbs.绿色革命是几年前对水稻和其他谷物新品种的开发。这些新作物产量大得多。绿色革命是那些精通园艺的农业科学家辛勤工作的结果。

Green is also the color used to describe the powerful emotion, jealousy.  The green-eyed monster is not a frightening creature from outer space.  It is an expression used about four hundred years ago by British writer William Shakespeare in his play “Othello.”绿色革命是几年前对水稻和其他谷物新品种的开发。这些新作物产量大得多。绿色革命是那些精通园艺的农业科学家辛勤工作的结果。

It describes the unpleasant feeling a person has when someone has something he wants.  A young man may suffer from the green-eyed monster if his girlfriend begins going out with someone else.  Or, that green-eyed monster may affect your friend if you get a pay raise and she does not.它描述了一个人在别人拥有他想要的东西时的不愉快的感觉。如果一个年轻人的女朋友开始跟别人约会,他可能会嫉妒。或者,如果你加薪了,而你的朋友没有,嫉妒会影响到她。

In most places in the world, a green light is a sign to  move ahead.  A green light on a traffic signal means your car can  continue on.  In everyday speech, a green light means approval to continue with a project. We want you to know we have a green light to continue this series next  week.在世界上的大多数地方,绿灯是前进的标志。交通信号灯上的绿灯表示你的车可以继续行驶。在日常用语中,绿灯意味着批准继续进行一个项目。我们想让你知道,我们可以在下周继续这个系列。
