一些关于hand的表达

0

The hand has been a symbol through the ages and in many cultures.从古至今,手在许多文化中都是一种象征。

There are hundreds of expressions and combinations of words using hand in the English language.  Let us examine some of the expressions that use hand. 在英语中,有成百上千的关于hand的表达和词语组合。让我们来看看一些使用hand的表达。

We will get a hand in this way. To get a hand in is to begin a job, to begin to know something about it.  When we learn the job completely, it will be easy for us.  We will be able to do it hands down.这样我们就可以帮上忙了。get a hand in意思是开始做一件事,开始了解它。当我们完全学会这项工作时,对我们来说就容易多了。我们可以不费吹灰之力做到。

If we do the job well, we may end up with the upper hand.  And that means to be in control, or to have gained complete understanding of a situation.如果我们把这项工作做得好,我们最后可能会占上风。这意味着控制局面,或者完全理解形势。

On the other hand, if the situation gets out of hand, then it is out of control.  We must act quickly to regain the upper hand over these expressions.另一方面,如果情况失去控制,那就是失去控制。我们必须迅速采取行动,重新占上风。

But, wait. We still do not have the upper hand in this business.但是,等待。在这生意上我们仍然没有占上风。

We must consider another way of expressing praise, to hand it to someone.  For example, I must hand it to you for understanding what we have discussed this far.我们必须考虑表达赞美的另一种方式,将其传递给某人。例如:我必须将它交给您,以了解我们到目前为止所讨论的内容。

You can also lend a hand to someone, but without really giving up your hand.  You lend a hand when you help someone. You offer them a helping hand. 您也可以向某人伸出援助之手,但无需真正放弃自己的手。
当您帮助某人时,您会伸出援手。您为他们提供帮助。

If someone is kind enough to lend us a hand, then we surely do not want to bite the hand that feeds us.  We do not want to repay his kindness by treating him badly.如果有人好心地向我们伸出援手,那么我们肯定不想恩将仇报。我们不想以虐待他来报答他的好意。

Now, with that out of the way, we have a free hand to continue examining other hand expressions. To have a free hand in a situation is good.  It means you are free to act without getting permission from someone else.现在,有了这些,我们就可以继续检查其他的手势表达式了。在某种情况下放手去做是好的。这意味着你可以不经别人的允许自由行动。

If we continue moving along, we will make progress hand over fist, or very rapidly. This expression began in the early seventeen hundreds.  It reportedly comes from a sailing expression hand over hand, the way of quickly raising or lowering a sail.如果我们继续前进,我们会很快地取得进展。这个表达开始于17世纪早期。据报道,这个短语来自一个航海用语hand over hand,指快速升起或降下船帆的方式。

Maybe you can find a friend who wants to take a hand in our project.  It would have to be someone who is interested in these expressions.也许你可以找个朋友来帮忙我们的项目。必须是对这些表达式感兴趣的人。

Your friend may want to work hand in glove with us. That is good, because that means he wants to work as closely with us as a glove covers the hand.  Of course there is a danger that he may look at our project and decide to take it in hand.  That means he wants to take it over.你的朋友可能想和我们密切合作。这很好,因为这意味着他想和我们紧密合作,就像手套盖住手一样。当然,有一个危险是,他可能看了我们的项目然后决定接手。这意味着他想要接管它。

If that happens, we may throw up our hands because the situation seems hopeless. In fact, we may decide that it is time for us to end this project, to wash our hands of hand expressions.如果发生这种情况,我们可能会放弃我们的手,因为情况似乎没有希望。事实上,我们可能会决定是时候结束这个项目了,洗手不干了。
