An old story goes that once there were four single men, leading very boring lives. None of them were married, or had lovers, or did anything exciting. They just sat around all day and played Mahjong.

故事从四个过着单调生活的单身汉说起。他们没有人结婚,连女朋友都没有,日子过得无精打采,终日打麻将度过。

One day they played Mahjong from 11 in the morning until 11 at night. During the game, no matter who won, the winning card was always the ’four columns’ card (the card shows four independent, parallel columns in two lines). Even more of a coincidence, it was Nov 11, or 11/11. In order to commemorate the day, they nicknamed it Singles Day.

有一天他们打麻将从早上11点打到了晚上11点。奇妙的是,不管谁赢,都赢在了“四条”上。更加巧合的是,这一天正是11月11号。为了纪念这一天,他们给它命名为“光棍节”。

University culture 大学传统

Singles Day was first celebrated at various universities in Nanjing, capital city of Jiangsu Province during the 1990s. It got the name Singles Day because the date is comprised of four "ones". These college students have

since graduated, and carried their university tradition into society. Singles Day is now a special day for all fashionable youths.

光棍节最先在90年代的江苏南京各大高校兴起。之所以叫“光棍节”是因为这一天的日子有四个光棍一样的“1”。大学生们毕业了,把这个传统带到了社会上,光棍节就成了时尚青年们的一个特殊节日。

The main way to celebrate Singles Day is to have dinner with your single friends, but it’s important that each person pay their own way to show their independence. People also hold ’blind date’ parties in an attempt to bid goodbye to their single lives.

主流的庆祝方式就是和光棍朋友们一起搓一顿,而且一定要实行AA制。为了脱离单身,人们也会举办相亲会,介绍单身男女认识。

Creative celebration 新奇庆祝

For breakfast on Singles Day, singles often eat four youtiao (deep-fried dough sticks) representing the four "ones" in "11.11" and one baozi (steamed stuffed buns) representing the middle dot.

光棍节的早上,单身青年们会吃四根油条,代表11.11的四个“1”,再吃一个包子,代表11和11之间的那个点。

Many singles also choose to say goodbye to their single lives on this day. Many attend ’blind date’ parties and many people choose to marry on this day. In addition to meaning ’single’ the four ’ones’ of the date can also mean ’only one’ as in ’the only one for me.’ Some people will use this date and this

meaning to tell their special someone that they are the only ’one’ in their heart.

很多单身朋友选择在这一天告别单身,一些人参加相亲会,一些人则在今天结婚。四个“1”不仅可以代表单身,还可以代表“唯一”,这也成了一些人的爱情告白日。

光棍节的由来传说及必备英语

上传: 李盛鹏 更新时间:2011-11-13 10:58:47

如果1是最孤单的数字,单身人士看今天的日期能够感受六次寂寞。2011年11月11日,六个“1”被网友称为百年一遇的巨型光棍节。从事哪些职业的人最容易过这个节日呢?

我们来看一段英文报道:

the chinese single people's association released a list - 11 careers in china that prospective partners shun the most - on the eve of singles' day.

zhang yiyi, who called himself the president of the association, said that poets, highly-admired in the past, topped the list of those having careers that were being seen as the most undesirable. on the list, secretaries are ranked at number two, for the reason that they "do not have a good reputation". lawyers finished at number three.

中国单身者协会在光棍节前夕公布一份榜单,榜单上是最不易找到伴侣的11大职业。 该协会会长张一一称,诗人在过去备受尊崇,现在列于最不受欢迎的职业之首。 根据该榜单,秘书排名第二,因其职业带来的名声不太好。律师位列第三。

讲解:

文中的“singles' day”即“光棍节”的意思。光棍节还可以用guanggun festival来表示。“光棍”的英文为bachelor或singles,singles为复数形式。导语中的“百年一遇的巨型光棍节”可以表达为the ultimate singles' day of the century。转自

戏说“光棍节”英语

一年一度的光棍节到啦!还是单身的你,准备好怎么庆祝了吗?或者说,准备好怎么“脱光”(摆脱光棍)了吗?

这个所谓的“光棍”,在英语中是怎么表达的呢!

最简单的说法是"single"。虽然“光棍”一词非常形象且喜感满满,但其实说到底就是“单身”嘛。因此平时我们用"single"一词足以表示“光棍”了。例如:

she remained single all the life. 她一直单身。

此外,还有一个词也可以表达单身的意思,即bachelordom,是从bachelor一词发展来的。 bachelor在这里可不是“学士”的意思哦,而是我们所说的`“光棍”、“单身汉”啦,这个词是指未婚男子,如果是是未婚女子,可以用maiden(少女)一词。我们知道,“bachelor”还可以表示“获学士学位的人”。那么,为什么这个词既是“光棍”又是“学士”的意思呢?有种说法是以前的学校都是男女分校,也就是我们常说的“unise-xual school”,导致学士都是光棍啦!不过究竟是不是这个原因就无从考证啦。例句:

he is a bachelor; once he is fed, no one is hungry in his family.

他是光棍儿一条,一人吃饱全家不饿。

那么,你知道“剩女”怎么说吗?是3s lady (single, seventies, stuck),即single(单身), stuck(被卡住的), seventies(大多是出生于20世纪70年代) 。

所以,“光棍节”的英文就是"singles day"或者"bachelors day"了。从语法的角度上讲这些都是正确的,但是在西方人心目中day指所有人都可enjoy的节日,比如christmas day,但是咱们的光棍节只属于“光棍们”所以用day表达,有些矛盾,老外也就不明白啥意思了。 他们觉得singles night 更地道一些,因为night会让老外想到party,singles night不仅解决了day的不妥,而且还包含了光棍节的主题活动,“光棍节”一个中国原创的节日,singles night一个可以让老外神会的译法。if you are a single ,enjoy your singles night,说不定你就会遇到你的ta,就可双宿双飞喽say goodbye to your single life。转自:

光棍节:singles day

give the eye 抛媚眼,送秋波

size up 估量;符合要求

1. have a crush on 迷恋某人

a: i'm having this huge crush on ted. i'm going to try and see if i can ask him out this weekend.

a: 我最近好喜欢ted 喔! 我想看看能不能约他这个周末出来。

b: well...but i heard that he is already seeing somebody.

b: 嗯……但是我听说他已经有了交往的对象了诶!

美国人关于交友的用词和我们有些不同。这里的 "he is seeing somebody" 有可能指他刚正开始和某人交往, 也可能指他和对方已经交往了一阵子。还有一个美国人常用来形容他们的「感情状况」的字是"relationship"。到目前为止,我还不能找到一个很贴切的中文来代替它。

不过, 如果例句中的"...but i heard that he is already seeing somebody." 改成

"...but i heard that he is already is a serious relationship with

somebody." 就惨了。因为那表示这个叫ted 的男生不但是「死会」了, 而且是「非常地死会」。各位应该可以大致抓到它的意思吧。

2. play hard-to-get 欲擒故纵

a: so she stood you up last night.

a: 结果, 她昨晚放你鸽子啦?

b: well, i guess she's trying to play hard-to-get.

b: 嗯, 大概想跟我玩「欲擒故纵」的游戏吧!

"stand someone up" 是「放某人鸽子」的意思。

"play hard-to-get" 也可以说成 "play tough-to-get"。

3. hook up 介绍、送作堆

a: hey, how come you've never told me you have a cute sister...

a: 嘿! 你为什么从来没告诉我你有一个这么漂亮可爱的妹妹?

b: what are you trying to say?

b: 你想说什么呢?

a: well, you can hook me up, maybe?

a: 嗯..也许你可帮我介绍一下?

b: no way.

b: 休想!

"how come?" 是口语上经常被用来代替"why"的字, 是「为什么」的意思。但是"how come"

跟"why"的用法是不同的。用"how come"时, 句子的构造很接近中文: 如: "how come you didn't call

me last night?" (你为什么昨晚没打电话给我呢?)。这句话如果换成用"why"就须要用一般的问句型式, 而成 "why

didn't you call me last night?"了。

美国人对于亲属辈份关系的区分, 并不像我们那么清楚。这里的 "sister" 可能指「姊姊」, 也可能指「妹妹」,须要另外问才清楚。

"hook up" 是"connection"的意思, 相当于中文里的「介绍、认识」之类的词,

并不单指男女之间的认识。比如某人正在找份工作, 他的朋友刚好认识比尔盖兹(billgates)。他就可以跟这位朋友说"hey!

since you're a friend of bill's, why don't you hook me up?" (嘿!

既然你是比尔的朋友, 帮我介绍一下吧!)

4. break up 分手

a: how are bob and pat doing?

a: bob 和pat 近来如何?

b: they broke up last summer.

b: 他们去年夏天分开了。

"break up" 是「关系中止」的意思, 不限于男女之间的关系。"break-up" 是分手的名词形。如: "they had an ugly break-up." (他们很不愉快地分手了。)

5. date (男女间的)约会; 约会对象

a: dude, did you see that babe over there? i'm dating her.

a: 老兄!看见那边那个美女没有? 我正在跟她约会喔!

b: man, you're lucky.

b: 你真是运气好!

"babe" 是「令人垂涎」的美女或俊男。

「和某人约会」除了用 "date" , 还可以用 "romance"这个字。比如: "beck and ada have been dating for years." 可以说成:"beck and ada have been romancing for

years.", 都是「beck 跟 ada 爱情长跑多年的意思」。

注意名词的" date" 和 "appointment" 不可混用?quot;appointment" 是男女以外的约会, 如医生、工作面谈的约。万一你跟你的医生说:"i'd like to have a date with you.",

他可能会眼睛、嘴巴都张得很大。

地道英语:与颜色有关的日常表达

每个人都有自己独特的表达方式。美国有很多基于颜色的日常短语。

红色是一种火热的颜色。美国人经常用它来表述热度。他们可能会说对一些不公平的事情感觉到red hot,意思是说他们对此非常愤怒。例如:

John is always red hot about something unfair in the society。

约翰总是对社会的不公平现象感到气愤。

很多墨西哥食物中含有的红色小辣椒因其颜色和火辣而被称为red hots,因此也用来形容某事物特别是快节奏的强劲音乐很火爆。例如:

Dixieland jazz is red hot and popular with many people。

迪克西兰爵士乐是一种非常受欢迎的火爆音乐。

粉色是一种稍淡的红。人们有时会用in the pink来表示身体健康。例如: I really feel in the pink after a fortnight's holiday。

度了两星期的假后,我的确感到身体非常舒适。

蓝色是一种冷色调。美国传统布鲁斯音乐(blues music)正好与强劲的音乐相反。布鲁斯音乐非常舒缓、忧伤和深情。如果说一个人非常blue,说明他非常忧伤。例如: He felt blue over his dismissal。

他因被解雇而情绪低落。

I'm feeling blue today。

我今天心情不好。

绿色是草木的自然颜色,但人可不是这样。胃不舒服的人可能会说她觉得有点难受(feels a little green)。有时一个人可能会感觉心烦意乱,因为他的某些东西不如朋友的好。这个人可能会说他非常羡慕嫉妒恨(green with envy)。还有些人会非常嫉妒朋友比他更有钱。因为美钞背面是绿色的,所以美元通常被称greenback。例如:

He was green with envy at his colleagues'promotion。

看到同事升职时,他非常嫉妒。

黑色也经常用于各类短语中。人们将诸事不利的一天称为黑色的一天(black day)。发生重大灾难的某日也被称为黑色的一天。现在黑名单(blacklist)是不合法的。但曾有一段时间,一些企业会拒绝雇佣黑名单上的人,因为他们属于某个不受欢迎的组织。例如: It's black day, Scarlett. You haven't had bad news, have you?

今是真是糟糕的一天。斯佳丽,你没有收到什么坏消息吧?

在某些情况下,颜色也用于描述一种处境。Brown out用于表示电力不足。当电力需求过度时就会出现电力不足,电力系统无法满足某个地区的用电需求。灯火管制(black outs)在二战期间非常普遍。官方会下令关闭城市所有灯光,使敌机在黑暗中很难找到攻击目标。例如:

The blackouts are being rolled across thousands of streets in rural areas, suburbs and city centers in almost every county in the UK。

灯火管制正在全英几乎每个郡的农村、郊区和市中心的街道全面实行。
