今日小常识

In ancient Egypt, people thought dogs were like gods. Dogs were treated very well and even had their own servants. They wore expensive collars and were served the best food available. When a ruler died his favourite dog was often buried with him to protect him in the afterlife.

在古埃及时代,人们把狗奉为神。狗的待遇非常好,以至配有专门的仆人。它们脖子上戴着名贵的颈圈,吃的也是最好的。当一位帝王去世时,他最喜欢的狗也会和他一起埋葬,在另一个世界里保护他。

在英语里,bark 做为动词是狗叫的意思。短语 barking mad 是形容某人完全疯了的状态,同时也能形容某个不理智或疯狂的决定。

例句

I went out wearing sandals even though it was raining. Everyone was looking at me as if I were barking mad.

My neighbour is barking mad. I always hear him talking to himself!

The company's decision to open a new branch is barking mad. They don't have enough money.

请注意

在英语里有不少词汇和短语可以用来形容某人疯了或者作出的行为是不可思议的,比如:crazy, mad, insane, bananas, batty, out of one’s mind.

Why didn't you call me to tell me you were OK? Are you out of your mind?
