解 习语;词义溯源:看到[光、亮光(light)]

例 Your father used to be an outspoken atheist, didn't he? I remember once I tried to talk with him about religion and he looked me in the eye and said, “You are misled. ” So you can imagine my shock when I saw him in church Sunday. What made him finally see the light? Was it the death of your mother?

解 习语;词义溯源:参观[景象(sights)]

解 短语动词;词义溯源:[对(to)]某人或某物注意
