The First Thanksgiving----英语 感恩节 关于感恩节的一些词汇

1. Talk Turkey: 打开窗户说亮话,说实在的

相传在北美殖民时期,一个白人和一个黑人去打猎,事先说好了平分打到的猎物.结果一天下来只打到一只火鸡和一只鹧鸪.白人心里想要火鸡,但又不敢直接说,于是对印第安人说如果你要火鸡,我就拿鹧鸪,如果你要鹧鸪,我就拿火鸡,印第安人一听就明白了,于是针锋相对地说:你一直在讲火鸡,现在让我也讲讲火鸡吧! 于是talk turkey 演变成打开窗户说亮话,说实在的,坦诚地说话的意思了例: 1. If you are willing to talk turkey, the dispute between us can be easily settled.
如果你愿意实实在在地说话,那么我们之间的争端就可以很容易地解决.

2. Generally he is an easy-going person, but when it comes to religious belief he talks turkey.

一般来说,他是一个随和的人,但一谈到宗教信仰,他就正经起来.

其它词汇:

*have a turkey on (ones) back: (1) 喝醉酒; (2) 吸毒
*red as a turkey cock:       气的满面通红
*swell like a turkey cock:   气势汹汹的发作
* Thanksgiving dinner         感恩节正餐
* Thanksgiving turkey         感恩节火鸡
