【疯狂注释】dirt cheap的意思是“很便宜;便宜得很”!很多中国的英语学习者误以为是“dirty and cheap”,闹了很多笑话!

Kim’s Note: This is a favorite word of Americans. It is often used as a one-word sentence. 这是美国人很喜欢用的一个词,经常一个字出现在句子里。
A: What did you think of that new restaurant?
你认为那家新饭店怎么样?
B: Cheap!
太差劲了!
注意:Be sure to pronounce this word well. You need to exaggerate the long vowel sound. If you don’t, people will be confused and think you are talking about a popular American snack, potato chips. 当心这个单词发音要准确,你得夸张其中的长元音。要不然,人们就会迷惑,以为你想要美国人爱吃的小吃——炸薯条!
