      我們從小學習英語都知道shy是害羞的意思。

      今天小編帶大家挖掘有關shy更多有趣實用的表達,

      一起學一學吧~


      害羞

       

      shy

      Someone who's extremely shy might blush or stammer when talking to a group of people. Shy can also mean "tending to avoid," like when someone is "camera shy," or if they "shy away" from being straightforward. The Old English root scēoh, "easily frightened," originally only referred to a horse, and came from a Germanic root meaning "scare."

      一個極度shy的人在和一群人說話時可能會臉紅或結巴。Shy也意味著傾向于逃避,比如有人"camera shy"會比較逃避鏡頭,或者他們羞于直言。古英語詞根scēoh意思是很容易受驚,最初只指馬,來自日耳曼詞根,意為驚嚇。

       

      害羞

       

      # shy of something

      只差

      slightly less than, slightly earlier than, or a short distance from something

      比某物稍小、稍早或稍近的距離;只差

      例:

      They scored just shy of 100 goals last year.

      他們去年進了將近100個球。(離100很近,但是差一點沒到一百)

      I called him only two minutes shy of midnight.

      我在離午夜只有兩分鐘的時候打電話給他。

      # shy用在動物上

      怕人;受驚

      如果shy用來形容動物,并不是說某個動物害羞,而是說它害怕人靠近

      例:

      The deer were shy (= unwilling to be near people) and hid behind some trees.

      那些鹿害怕人,都藏在樹后。

      同時作動詞用在動物身上也表示“受驚”

      (of a horse) to suddenly move sideways or backwards, especially because of fear

      (馬)受驚,驚退

      例:

      There's a lot of traffic on the road - I'm sure my horse is going to shy.

      路上交通很擁擠——我敢肯定我的馬會受驚。
