Yang Li: Hello everybody, I’m Yang Li and this is Authentic Real English from the BBC.

Tracy : And I’m Tracy.

Yang Li: 在我们 BBC 《地道英语》节目板块中,我们会带大家一起学习一些英国人日常使用的现代英语词汇和表达。

Tracy : Now Li today is your lucky day.

Yang Li: Why’s that?

Tracy : Because today I am going to take you for lunch at the most expensive restaurant in London.

Yang Li: Wow! Are you sure you can afford it? 请我去伦敦最贵的餐厅吃饭?你请得起吗?

Tracy : Don’t worry about that Li. I’ve got lots and lots of money. In fact, I’m loaded.

A hand holding money

Are you loaded?

Yang Li: Loaded?

Tracy : Yes, I’m loaded. L.O.A.D.E.D. Loaded.

Yang Li: So loaded means you have lots of money then?

Tracy : Exactly right.

Yang Li: 原来 loaded means 非常的有钱。 Well, if you’re loaded and want to invite me to lunch, I’ll be most happy to come with you.

Tracy : Great, but before we go, let’s hear some examples of how to use our new word, loaded.

Example

A: I think football players get paid far too much money.

B: I know. Can you imagine being loaded like that? Having expensive cars and lots of houses - it must be incredible.

A: I can’t afford to go out tonight. I’ve spent all my money.

B: Don’t worry. I’m loaded right now. I’ll treat you to a night out.

Yang Li: 看来 loaded 这个词即表示某人很富有,也可以用来表示某人现在手里很有钱。

Tracy : Yes, but of course being loaded is a relative idea. What is a lot of money for some people may seem a small amount to someone much richer.

Yang Li: That’s true. Are there any other words with the same meaning as loaded?

Tracy : Of course, one thing we all know about English is that there are always lots of alternative ways to say something.

Yang Li: Well, let’s have some examples then.

Tracy : Ok, another way to say I have lots of money is to say, I’m minted.

Yang Li: I’m minted.

Tracy : Or I’m rolling in it.

Yang Li: I’m rolling in it. Rolling 就是打滚的意思。就是说,我钱多得可以在钱堆里打滚。 Great, well since you’re loaded, I’ll be happy to accept your invitation to lunch.

Tracy : Fantastic. Let’s go, I’m starving.

Yang Li: Come on then. Now don’t forget to visit our website every day.

Tracy : That’s www.bbcchina.com.cn. You’ll always find something new there. See you next time.

Yang Li: Bye for now.
