和外國人的對話

我在臉書上和一位住在加州的男生當網友因為英文學了很久,我想看看我的英文程度好不好所以聊天聊了一陣子,我就問他:你覺得我的英文有很差嗎他回我: No it's pretty sick actually上網確認後,這似乎是不好的意思

後來他跟我說, 那是他們加州人的用法,代表好的意思

之後他還說我 pretty chill 也代表好的意思

請問他說的是對的嗎??

另外,

I don't want to sound like a dick

是什麼意思???

    他用的是Slangs...非正式用語...可能只是某個區域或是Street languages,也有可能是青少年的用詞。

    如果你沒住在那裏,或是要融入某個社區或是團體

    花時間學這些,不如多加強英文程度到更高的級別

    I don't want to sound like a dick 這句電影中常可以聽到,意思是:我不想聽起來像一個蠢蛋。

    如果認識的朋友用些粗俚語代表情誼深,

    如果不熟的人用些粗俚語, 則不禮貌!

    The term "dick" in this essay is generally defined as "an abrasive and inconsiderate person" of any gender. Therefore this is an essay about obnoxious behaviour.

    以上大家的一些意見, 可以參考但不必認真;

    畢竟美式文化必需融入與了解; 評論才客觀.

    to Becky: Dick俚語是刑警,偵探沒錯喔, short for dectective,私家偵探:private dick.

    天啊!我的Dr.eye譯典通騙了我!它告訴我說:.

    dick = n. 1.[口]誓言,宣言 2. [美][口]刑警,偵探

    所以剛剛我還以為I don't want to sound like a dick的意思是「我不想讓自己看起來像偵探似的」呢。

    剛剛去查了牛津字典,confirm了各位大師所言不虛。

    這讓我一方面為版主感到惋惜(This might be an inconvenient truth to her...),另一方面為自己的Dr.eye譯典通感到耽憂。

    jim:

    謝謝您的解釋。剛剛我也在這裡找到一些dick = 「偵探」的線索。

    http://www.yourdictionary.com/dick

    但我到美國Yahoo和google搜尋的結果(看看整個context),也讓我再次confirm了”sound like a dick”的確是不好的意思。

    現在我想我大致瞭解了。Dick雖然有時也可以是「偵探」的意思,但在蓉蓉的這個context裡,它的確是不好的意思。

    Yeah from the way he talks, he is sick and he is a dick. But wait a minute, isn't that so called "real English", no rules, no grammar, no nothing at all, just keeping shooting out of the mouth. And that is the type of English many people are trying to promote, isn't it?

    slang這種東西沒有標準答案. 今天流行, 明天不流行. 有時候會引起誤會. 通常比較有家教的人會在不熟的人面前盡量少用. 以免引起不必要的誤會.

    這人如果不是不太禮貌, 就是知識水準有限, 跟這種人混, 你學不到好英文的, 反而有機會學的一口粗話, 以後一開口講英文, 人家會看輕你. 要練英文還是另外找吧.

    dick在這裡的用法的確不是好字, 跟ass一樣. 但是這句, I don't want to sound like disk就已經是sound like an ass了.

    另外, Dick也是Richard的暱稱, 也有個姓是Dicks

    Good advice! After all, you will NOT learn that good an English from him!

    LuM!, give you some hints, among all the master in opinion, 80% of them live in US for more than 20 years!

    Hmm, I thought it should have been slick, instead of sick. But from his subsequent text, I don't think it is good.

    Dick is a bad word for the organ that girls do not have.

    I think you need to lose him - he has been rude to you.

    No gentleman at all - don't be a gentlelady to him.

    2012-02-19 08:11:27 補充:

    Well, if you want to liver dangerously like I do, go ahead and make my day.

    But if learning English is what you want, lose him.

    You deserve better.

    That depends - if you lived in LAX, 200 years have no comparison to 2 months in Sing Sing.
