Hang on 等等

短语 hang on 的直接翻译是挂在什么东西上面,就像图中显示的那样。更常用的意思是请他人稍等片刻。

今日小常识

Steam locomotives - like the one in the photo above - were first developed in Britain. They burn materials like coal, wood or oil to produce steam that drives the engine. In the early 20th century they were replaced with electric and diesel locomotives, and are rarely found today.

像图中的那辆蒸汽火车是在英国发明的。利用煤炭,木材或石油燃烧产生蒸汽来发动引擎。在20世纪初,这些蒸汽火车就被电动或柴油火车代替了,目前仅有极少数蒸汽火车还能运行。

例句

Can you hang on for five minutes? I'd like to come with you but I need to make a phone call first.

Hang on a minute – don't leave without trying some chocolate cake!

Hang on! Look over there, isn't that Joe in the yellow T-shirt and straw hat?

请注意

英语中我们有时会告诉别人 to hang in there. 这是一个口语化表达意思是在困难时期坚持下去。

Even though you hate your job, just hang in there for a couple more months, it will look great on your CV!

I know you can't stand your mother-in-law but just hang in there, the evening will be over soon.
