The word 'sombrero' comes from the word 'sombra' meaning shadow but the design of the sombrero hat may have originally been to allow the wearer to carry things like food on long journeys.

單詞 sombrero 寬邊帽源於另一個單詞 sombra 意思是影子。寬邊帽最初的設計理念可能是想讓戴此類帽子的人能在長途旅行中攜帶食品。


短語 to keep it under your hat 意思就是保密,千萬別告訴別人。


I'll tell you, but you must promise to keep it under your hat.

Doug didn't tell anyone about his new job, he kept it under his hat.

Now I've told you my little secret, keep it under your hat.


另一個短語 hats off to someone 的意思是向某人致敬,因為他們做了值得讚揚的事情或者他們通過不懈的努力獲得了成功。如果你想稱讚某物,可以用短語 hats off to something.

Hats off to Jenny for organising the office party!
