【Leave】

这个词看起来简单,但是如果看不起它的话就不容易用好。用好了可以帮助我们省大力气,一旦接受就可以为我们所用。

这里不讨论它的“离开“含义。那个确实很简单。要讨论的是“放任“、“不干涉“以及“造成...的后果“等意思。弄清下列例句就可以学好leave 这个词。

例句:

1、别管我/别打扰我!

Leave me alone! (超级经典)

2、门别关。

Chinglish: Don't close the door.

Revision: Leave the door open.

3、维持原状。

Chinglish: Maintain its original form. (好费劲啊)

Revision: Just leave it as it is.

4、昨天晚上在郊区发生爆炸案导致1人死亡,11人受伤。

The bombing took place in the suburb last night, leaving one dead and eleven injured. (VOA新闻广播超级经典句)

Ok, let's work hard and we should never leave today's work for tommorrow.
