The script of this programme 本节目台词

 
Are you always out with your other half?
Jo: Welcome to Real English from BBC Learning English. I'm Jo and with me today is Lily.
Lily: Hello there. 很多听众都熟悉我们的地道英语,这个节目专门向大家介绍英式英语中最流行的词汇和成语,其中很多都是字典上查不到的。 Jo 今天我们要学习的新短语是什么?

Jo: Well, we're going to take a look at the expression other O.T.H.E.R. half H.A.L.F. other half.

Lily: Other half? 另一半? 什么的另一半呢 Jo?

Jo: The other half of your relationship. Your other half is simply your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife.

Lily: 这很有意思,英语中可以把情侣中的一方,男朋友,女朋友,丈夫或妻子统称为 the other half – 就像汉语中我们常说的你那位。

Jo: You would be more likely to use this for a boyfriend or girlfriend you have been with for a long-time – so it would be someone you are in a long term relationship with.

Lily: 长期的情侣关系,也就是说, other half 这个短语多用于那些老夫老妻或有长期关系的情侣。

Jo: And you usually use it to talk about your other half with someone else.

Lily: 另一点要注意的是, other half 一定是在和第三者谈话的场合使用。 Let's have an example shall we?

Examples

A: So are you coming to Jess' party?

B: Yeah I'll be there. Can I bring my other half?

A: So are you going on holiday this year?

B: Yes, me and my other half are going to America to visit some friends for a couple of weeks.

Lily: Well I've got to go – my friend and her other half are staying and we're going out for a meal.

Jo: Yes and I've got to get back to my other half.

Lily: 我那位,my other half 你那位, your other half. 好,这就是今天的新词汇, 怎么样? 如果有兴趣了解更多的新词新语, 只需登陆我们的网页就可以了 www.bbcchina.com.cn. 进入双语教学页面之后, 点击 Real English.
