当你 splash out 的时候,这就意味着你在可能没有什么意义的东西或事情上花上一大笔钱。


When Cao Yuan and Zhang Yanquan won gold in the diving final, they dashed the hopes of British competitors Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield. The local pair had led the competition in the first three rounds but suffered as a result of a poor fourth dive.

当中国跳水健将曹缘和张雁全赢得双人10米跳水冠军时,英国选手 Tom Daley 和 Pete Waterfield 的奥运之梦也就破灭了。这对英国组合在前三轮均处领先地位,但最后一轮却失误了。


I was feeling down, so I splashed out on a new computer and then felt great.

The shops were full of people splashing out after pay day.

I fancy sushi. Let's splash out and go to that new restaurant down the road. It's expensive but the food looks delicious.


另一个短语 make a splash 意思是某人突然出名或非常成功。

Bradley Wiggins made a splash by winning the Tour de France. Nobody had heard of him and a week later he started the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
