“副驾驶”英文怎么说?难道是 vice driver?

2021-05-31 22:44:44  每日学英语
副驾驶这个位置是个特殊的存在,

而且这个说法有点奇怪:

明明坐在副驾驶的人就是乘客,

除了有时候指指点点影响驾驶员心情以外,

似乎跟驾驶没关系,

为何要称为"副驾驶"?

英文中驾驶员坐的座位叫作

driver's seat

副驾驶和其它位置还可以叫作

passenger seat

"副驾驶"在英文中还有一个表达:

shotgun /ˈʃɔtˌgʌn/

本意: 猎枪; 霰(xiàn)弹枪

口语中经常指“副驾驶”

源自十九世纪美国西部扛枪打仗的年代,因为视野好便于观察敌情,所以拿枪的都坐司机旁边的座位。逐渐地shotgun就演化成副驾驶的意思。

 

 
词汇拓展(附发音练习)

 

方向盘
Steering wheel

Steering is two syllables, the ING ending is always unstressed. It has an R in it which can be a tricky sound. Make sure you can hold it out, sterrrrrring. Steering wheel. Wheel. WH words like ‘wheel’ can be pronounced hw or w without the h before, I think it’s easier just to use the W sound. Wheel. Steering wheel. Say that with me. Steering wheel, steering wheel.

Steering是两个音节,ING结尾总是不重读。它有一个R音,这是个很棘手的音。坚持住,sterrrrrring。Steering wheel。盘。像wheel这样的WH单词可以发hw或者w的音,我觉得发w的音更简单。Wheel。方向盘。和我一起说。Steering wheel,steering wheel。

仪表板
Dashboard

Stress on the first syllable. DASH-board. Try that with me. Dashboard, dashboard.

重音在第一个音节。DASH-board。和我一起试试。Dashboard, dashboard。

The driver’s seat, passenger’s seat, and back seat.

驾驶员座位,乘客座位和后座

Notice that we have the apostrophe S, but you can’t really hear it because the next word begins with an S. The two S’s blend together into one sound to link the words.

注意,我们有撇号S,但你不能真正听到它,因为下一个单词以S开头。两个S混合成一个音来连接单词。

Try those with me: driver’s seat, passenger’s seat.

跟我一起读:driver’s seat, passenger’s seat。

Back seat

后座

We have a couple of interesting ways that we use this term in English. A backseat driver is one who gives too much input on driving when they’re not driving. It can also mean a less importance, and we often use it in the negative. I won’t take a backseat to him. That means, I won’t let him or his ideas be more important or prominent than mine.

在英语中,这个词有很多有趣的用法。backseat driver就是自己不开车还在别人开车时指手画脚的人。backseat也可以指不那么重要的角色,我们通常用在否定句中。我不会做他的副手。这意味着,我不会让他或他的想法比我的更重要或更突出。

Yelling shotgun: yelling or calling shotgun.

坐副驾驶位:喊一声shotgun

I don’t know how this phrase got started. But you say it when you want to sit in the front seat of the car. Shotgun, with a Stop T. Say that with me, shotgun, shotgun.

我不知道这个短语是怎么来的。但当你想坐在车前座的副驾驶位置时你就要这么说。Shotgun,停住t不发音。和我一起说,shotgun, shotgun。
