    1. 這是Exam Dictionary中 contrary的解釋跟例句 請問 contrary 用中文字解釋 哪個用詞 較貼切呢?

    contrary: (adj.) someone who is contrary deliberately does different things from other people

    故意反道而行, 故意做相反的事物

    Contrary also means obstinate or unreasonable, perverse. 彆扭的, 頑固的, 任性的, 乖癖的

    Evans was his usual contrary self. (<-這一句 怎麼翻成中文呢?)

    = Evan was contrary as he used to be.

    So the translation is:

    Evans 還是如常的故意反道而行

    Evans 還是如常的故意做相反的事物

    Evans 還是如常的彆扭

    Evans 還是如常的頑固

    Evans 還是如常的任性

    Evans 還是如常的乖癖

    Evans 還是如以往的自己一樣的故意反道而行

    Evans 還是如以往的自己一樣的故意做相反的事物

    Evans 還是如以往的自己一樣的彆扭

    Evans 還是如以往的自己一樣的頑固

    2. 下面這一句呢 則是由網路上urban dictionary中 找到的解釋

    contrary (adj): to describe someone who doesn't wonna do right.

    做不被認同之事,叛逆

    Look at him! That boy is as contrary as he wanna be.

    = Look at him! That boy is contrary like how he wants to be.

    看看他!那男孩就是想要做不被認同之事

    看看他! 那男孩就是喜愛做不被認同之事

    看看他! 那男孩就是喜愛叛逆.

    I cannot add to what I wrote, so I am adding it here.

    This is the link to Urban Dictionary. It has the meaning of "disagreeable". 做不被認同之事.

    See http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=con... .

    By the way, the definitions in Urban Dictionary are not completely all accurate. That's why you see the dumb up and dumb down rating. To say someone who is 叛逆, you should use the word "rebellious" to be safe.

    Thanks Marina for pointing out the typos.
