In someone’s face, 是什么意思?


In someone’s face,是一个固定美语短语,其英文释义为:in a confrontational way that shows annoyance or contempt; involving confrontation; defiant; provocative; In front of or against someone directly。其中文意思为:以一种使人不快、轻蔑的方式与…对峙;与…直接对立。具体可翻译为:(就)在…面前,当着…的面。注意这里的介词使用in,类似于in front of。in someone’s face出现的语境往往具有较浓的挑衅、对抗意味。参考例句:He slammed the door in her face。(他当着她的面甩门而去。)在经典美国电影A Few Good Men中,Demi Moore有这样一句台词,其中就用到了in your face:”My job is to make sure that you do your job, so my jurisdiction’s pretty much in your face。(我的责任是确保你恪尽职守,因此我的管辖权清清楚楚就在你面前。)点击这里收听该句的原声英文音频。

Milf的确切定义是什么?

Milf(或MILF,全大写),这个词是美国男人们词库中必备的热词/俚语之一。严格来说,Milf并非一个真正的词,它最初是由四个单词的首字母合成而来,代表:Mom/Mother I‘d Like to F*ck,英文意思非常赤裸、直白。其中文意思则相当于:熟女、辣妈。那么Milf的确切定义是什么呢?Google英文词典的解释为:a sexually attractive older woman, typically one who has children.(年龄偏大、性感诱惑的成熟女性,通常有孩子)。Milf可以有孩子,也可以没孩子;可以是已婚,也可以是单身或离异,这些不是重点,关键在于其是否浑身上下透出成熟、性感、诱人的风情。Milf的年龄通常介于30-50多岁。Milf这个词早在1995便在新闻组(news group)中现身,但其流行得归功于美国青春喜剧片《美国派》(American Pie, 1999),在剧中MILF用来特指Stifler’s mom(史蒂夫勒的妈妈,Jennifer Coolidge饰)。《美国派》大热后,这个单词也逐步从小众走向主流,成为经典热词。最后,让我们重温American Pie中的一段搞笑场景:

[while looking at a picture of Stifler’s mom]
MILF Guy #2: Dude, chick’s a MILF!
MILF Guy #1: What the hell is that?
MILF Guy #2: M-I-L-F Mom I’d Like to Fuck!
MILF Guy #1: Yeah dude! Yeah!
MILF Guys: MILF, MILF, MILF! [MILF Guy #1 proceeds to lick picture]
