    Bulge主要是名詞,但也可以當動詞(bulged, bulging),可翻譯為「膨脹/腫脹/凸起的東西」。我自己的感覺bulge這個字是用來形容在異常狀況下才凸起來的東西,所以也有剛剛才凸起來的感覺-->動詞。

    例:That swollen bulge on his arm is a result of a hairline fracture in the radius bone.

    例:What's that bulge in your pants? Or are you just happy to see me? (笑)

    如果是正常情況下的凸物,我可能會用protrusion, lump, hump等字。

    例:Billy needs to go on a diet - there's no wonder why people call him Lumpy.

    例:You see that protrusion over there? That's where the beetles hatch their young.

    當然,'please press down where the bulge is' 完全沒有錯。


    Please apply downward pressure where the surface is protruding.

    可以,用 Please press on the bulged portion 或 Please press on the raised portion 就可以了。
