影片中提到,男人在面對社會上的許多問題如反性侵、反霸凌時不能「一笑置之」(laugh it off)。其實英文中除了 laugh it off 之外,還有許多跟 laugh 相關的表達法喔!像是 don’t make me laugh、force a laugh。這些 laugh 相關表達法你認識幾個呢?今天就跟著希平方一起探索一下吧!

 

● laugh 相關表達法

 

◎ laugh at

 

這個片語的意思是「嘲笑、笑話」,後面可以加上「某人」或「某物」,例如:

 

◎ laugh at someone

 

No one's laughing at you behind your back. It's all in your head.

(沒有人在背後嘲笑你。只是你的心理作用罷了。)

 

◎ laugh at something

 

She got upset when the other kids laughed at her hairstyle.

(其他小孩嘲笑她的髮型時,她感到很難過。)

 

◎ laugh off

 

這個片語的意思是「一笑置之」,例如:

 

He tried to laugh off the sarcastic online comments, but I could see that he was deeply hurt.

(他試著對那些挖苦的網路評論一笑置之,但我看得出來他很受傷。)

 

◎ don't make me laugh

 

字面意思是「不要讓我笑」,類似我們中文常說的「別開玩笑了」。如果某人剛才說得話讓你覺得不能當真或根本不可能,就可以運用這個表達法。例如:

 

She said she had no idea what was happening? Don't make me laugh!

(她說她完全不知情?別開玩笑了!)

 

◎ not know whether to laugh or cry

 

想要表達「哭笑不得、不知該哭還是該笑」的時候,就可以運用這個表達法。例如:

 

When they told me they were brother and sister, I really didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

(他們告訴我他們是兄妹時,我簡直哭笑不得。)

 

◎ burst out laughing

 

Burst out 有「突然爆發」的意思,所以 burst out laughing 就是「突然大笑起來」的意思。例如:

 

When I saw that post, I couldn't help but burst out laughing. It really made my day.

(看到那則貼文時我忍不住大笑起來。那真的讓我心情大好。)

 

◎ belly laugh

 

字面意思是「肚子的笑聲」,也就是我們中文常說的「捧腹大笑」。例如:

 

It was a pleasant evening full of surprises and belly laughs.

(這是個愉快的夜晚,充滿驚喜又讓人捧腹大笑。)

 

◎ force a laugh

 

字面意思是「擠出笑容」,也可以表示「強顏歡笑」。例如:

 

He managed to force a laugh in front of the cameras.

(他試著在鏡頭前擠出笑容。)

 

◎ have the last laugh

 

字面意思是「擁有最後的笑」,也就是「笑到最後、得到最後勝利」的意思。例如:

 

Let's wait and see who is going to have the last laugh.

(我們走著瞧、看看誰能笑到最後。)


 

這些 laugh 相關表達法都學會了嗎?別忘了找機會實際用用看喔!
