    秋老虎 ㄑ|ㄡ ㄌㄠˇ ㄏㄨˇ 秋季有幾天特別炎熱的天氣,稱為「秋老虎」。如:「雖然已過八月半,但秋老虎的確酷熱難當。」英語系對於北美(美、加拿大)在晚秋(10-11月)發生的異常乾燥,溫暖的天氣的一段時期,稱為”Indian summer”。而“the after summer”、“after summer”類似“afternoon”、”after dinner”,也可以使用。但是,“Autumn Tiger” 係由中文「秋老虎」直譯的,若無另加說明,外國人應會聽不懂的。

    ●而(A)“the after summer”、“after summer”的用法,類似(B)“afternoon”、”after dinner”的用法,因而也可以使用(A)。

    Then what is 秋老虎? Or should it be TW summer?

    No problem at all, my man. I myself am wondering why Indian summer is cooler than Alaska summer.

    Hold on, dude! Where is the place you are calling home? Is it TW or OH?

    I would bet my $ on the latter. Trust me, Jim dude has changed and so has TW.

    Come to mama, yes, come to mama and you are home free.

    Prisoner, Indian summer is not 秋老虎.I don't think there is a phrase for that in English. You can only describe it.

    2013-10-28 22:42:46 補充:

    Prisoner, I have to apologize for giving you the wrong info. But I could swear I've heard my local weatherman called it the Indian Summer several times when it was in the 70s out there in December or even January. So, my bad!!!

    It's finally cooling down a bit, but I'm heading back home in less than three weeks. TW is nice, but home where it's already snowing is much better, TW's humidity is hellish.

    2013-10-30 06:14:43 補充:

    You owe me $20 Prizzy!!! It's not TW nor OH, although my State neighbors OH. Let's not have this discussion in public, it's not about us, don't want to be rude.

    因為我的電子詞典,有個"生字背誦"我就按Enter,看到"雅思"我就按"Enter"進去,輸入after,就查到After Summer,就像你剛才看到的單字一樣。

    你確定是"After summer"嗎?如果方便的話,是不是可以提示一下,在哪裡看到的?有前後文,大家比較容易理解與討論。

    我只有看過形容秋老虎的"autumn summer"。倒還沒看過有人用"after"形容的。

    2013-10-28 00:05:56 補充:

    一般「美式英語」所說的是:Indian summer。大概就是指北半球從九月到隔年一月之間,氣溫異常(較均溫度數略高)的形容方式。


    2013-10-28 11:22:22 補充:

    從前在某一部影集曾經看過這樣的對話內容-"autumn summer"(形容秋天還跟夏天一樣),但我找不到其他相關資料可以引用。
