英语口语(8.23):You've just said a mouthful!

You've just said a mouthful!

你说到点子上了!


  名词mouthful的本意是吃一口菜、吃一口饭的“一口”(The amount of food or other material that can be placed or held in the mouth at one time),而say a mouthful是一个美国俚语,意思是,说得中肯,说到点子上。这句中,mouthful的含义就变为“重要而有洞察力的见解”(An important or perceptive remark)。

  例句:

  Senator, I want to tell you that you sure said a mouthful when you said taxes are too high and you'd work hard to lower them. Good to hear, and you can certainly count on my vote!
  参议员,你说税收太高,你要努力想办法来降低税收。我要告诉你,你说的完全正确。听到这样的话很高兴,我一定会投你一票的。(一个人在赞扬一位竞选连任的参议员所发表的讲话)
