关于各种“猜“的表达

猜猜猜,怎么用英语表达“你猜猜看“,“瞎猜哒“~大家一起来“猜猜看“

1. Take a guess

单说Take a guess,英文里就是让别人来猜猜看。你也可以把它用在你的回答中,表示只是一种猜测,别太当真就好。

例:If I had to take a guess, I'd say she's 30.
如果一定让我猜的话,我觉得她得有30岁了。

2. At a guess

人家一开口,你听到了at a guess,就知道对方是在猜测了。这个短语要表达的是“大约、估计“的意思。

例:At a guess, there were forty people at the party.
我猜,有40人参加了派对。

3. Chances are...

猜测总会有很多种可能,想要说出你认为的那种可能,就用Chances are来引导吧!

例:Chances are she has already heard the news.
我猜她八成已经听说了。

4. (Right) off the top of one's head

不假思索,也不用知道太多,一个猜想就直接冒出来了,灵光乍现的赶脚,有木有?这时,你可以使用上面这个短语。

例:-How much do you think this car would be worth on a trade?
你觉得这车要是卖的话多少钱?

-Well, right off the top of my head, I'd say about a thousand.
呃... 我猜大概1000块。

5. Shot in the dark

大黑天的乱放一枪,你击中目标的可能性太小了。这个短语借此比喻碰运气、是瞎猜哒!

例:We had nothing to go by. It was a shot in the dark, but it turned out right.
我们没什么根据,不过是瞎猜,结果还猜对了。
