LECTURE 134 基本动词 PUT 5

词组讲解

1. put 〔stick〕 one's oar in / put in one's oar ** 干涉,干预

解 习语;词义溯源:把自己的[桨(oar)]放在[里面(in)]

例 Dear Abby, please tell your readers that more often than not it's just best to remain quietly on the sidelines during a married couple's fight. Putting one's oar in is almost certain to make the situation worse because now the couple feels not only angry, but embarrassed as well. So when you feel the urge to put in your two cents worth —keep your mouth shut!Sincerely, Mrs. “Lesson Learned”

2. put 〔set〕 one's shoulder to the wheel ** 忙碌;努力工作

解 习语;词义溯源:把自己的[肩膀(shoulder)] 贴在[方向盘(the wheel)]上

例 What a change in Rick these days! Since you had a word with him the other day, he's been a completely different worker—not lazy at all. Whatever you said to him worked: he's been putting his shoulder to the wheel ever since.

3. put 〔throw〕 out some feelers ** 试探

解 习语;词义溯源:[在外(out)]放[试探者(feeler)]

例 You're worried that if we start asking people how they feel about you as a possible governor, Mr. Warton's staff will get the idea that you're considering challenging him, but if we don't at least put out some feelers, we'll never know what our chances of success are. I think we have no choice but to do it.

4. put sb. down as sb. ** 把某人当做另一个人

解 习语;词义溯源:把某人作为某人放在[下面(down)]

例 Charles Downing? You can definitely put him down as a liberal. How else would you define a man who supports reducing the military, spending billions on welfare payments to the poor, abolishing limits on immigration and allowing women to serve in combat? He's a liberal!

5. put 〔place, set〕 sb. on a pedestal ** 尊敬,崇拜,敬仰

解 习语;词义溯源:把某人放在[坐台(pedestal)]上

例 They put their great leaders on pedestals for all to worship, but the next generation made short work of knocking them off their pedestals.

参考译文

I. 1. 亲爱的阿比,请告诉你的读者,当一对夫妻吵架的时候,旁观者最好置身局外。从旁干涉几乎肯定会使情况更糟,因为这时,那对夫妻不仅非常生气,也会感到难堪。所以,当你想要发表你的意见时——闭紧你的嘴巴!你的朋友“博学夫人”。

2. 里克这些天真是变化不小!自从你那天跟他谈过之后,他工作起来完全不一样了——再也不懒惰了。你跟他说的话起了作用:从那之后,他一直非常努力地工作。

3. 你担心如果我们调查人们对你担任州长的看法,沃顿先生的人会知道你要向他挑战。但是如果我们不试探一下的话,我们永远不会知道我们成功的几率有多少。我想我们别无选择,只能这么做了。

4. 查尔斯·唐宁?你绝对可以把他看成是一位自由主义者。他支持裁军,要求支付几十亿来为穷人提供慈善支持,支持取消移民限制,允许女性参加战争。对于这样一个人,你还能怎么定义他?他就是一个自由主义者!

5. 他们把领袖当成偶像来崇拜,而下一代则迅速地将他们推下了神坛。

II. 1. A:我绝对不会把她看成是一个勤奋的员工。B:那你怎么评价她呢?当然你也不会说她懒惰,对吧?你不会觉得她是那种人,是不是?

2. A:让他们自己解决那个问题。根据我在这方面的经验,如果你擅自参与别人的事情,会让他们很生气。B:但我真的觉得我可以帮忙。A:我知道你会这么想,但是你听我的:如果你去干涉的话,你会后悔的。

3. A:你在这块木头上花了三个小时了。你最好努力工作。B:没有音乐可听,我很难把精力投入到工作中去。不能为车间买一台收音机吗?

4. A:我的天哪,卡里。你把她当成偶像来崇拜。好吧,凯拉的确是一个好女孩,但是她并不完美。而你却把她看成完美无瑕的,拒绝承认她有任何错误。清醒点吧。B:你只是嫉妒而已!别管我。我知道我在做什么。

5. A:是的,先生。我会让巴克利做一些调查,看看人们对此的看法如何。我会随时把最新消息告诉您的。B:好的。不过在你探听别人的观点之前,我希望你能为媒体准备一份声明,详细说明我们对这件事的官方政策。
