This is Everyday Grammar. I'm Lucija.

欢迎收看《每日语法》栏目,我是Lucija。

And I'm Kaveh. And today we'll be talking about (onomatopoeia).

我是Kaveh,今天我们将谈一谈(拟声词)。

Every language in the world has words that express or imitate sound. The English language has dozens of them. We call these words: Onomatopoeia.

世界上任何一种语言都有表达或模拟声音的词,英语中也有很多我们把这类词叫做拟声词。

Onomato-what?

拟…什么?

Oh-no-mah-toh-pea-ah.

拟…声…词!

You're gonna have to explain. Wait a minute… what do super heroes have to do with this?

你得解释一下,等一下…超级英雄们和这有什么关系?

Their actions make sounds. We need words to describe these sounds.

他们的动作会发出声音,所以我们需要一些词汇来描述这些声音。

I still don't get it.

我还是不明白。

OK. What does a phone sound like?

好吧。电话铃声听起来是怎样的?

Ring.

铃铃铃

A cat?

猫咪呢?

Meow.

Birds?

鸟儿呢?

Chirp.

唧唧

So, does this only apply to telephones and animals?

那,这些仅适用于电话和动物吗?

No! Onomatopoeic words can be used in many different ways, even as verbs. A song by Todd Rundgren has some really great examples.

当然不是,拟声词用法很多,甚至可以当动词用。托德•朗德格伦的一首歌好好地诠释了拟声词的用法。

Really? Let's hear it.

真的吗?那我们听一下。

He says: It's sort of whack, whir, wheeze, whine, sputter, splat, squirt, scrape, beep, buzz, ring, rip, roar, and retch.

他说:It's sort of whack, whir, wheeze, whine, sputter, splat, squirt, scrape, beep, buzz, ring, rip, roar, and retch.(整句都是拟声词,请自行脑补哈~)

Wow! So you're telling it's like a giggle, growl, grunt, gurgle, mumble, murmur, chatter, bam, and click?

哇哦!所以你是说就像giggle(咯咯笑)/ growl(咆哮)/ grunt(呼噜声)/gurgle(汩汩声)/mumble(咕噜咕噜)/murmur(喃喃声)/ chatter(啼啭声)/ bam(砰)/click(咔嚓)吗?

Exactly.

完全正确!

Well, that's good to know.

噢,很高兴了解这个。

And that's Everyday Grammar.

以上就是今天节目的全部内容。
