  • It's me. 是我。这是非正式用法。正式用法应该是 It's I。大多数美国人用非正式用法。另外这句话主语用的It。讲话时如果看不见对方,彼此称呼时常用that,it,this等词,如上一句话:Is that you, Susan?
  • Am I glad to see you! 见到你我真高兴!这种句子形式上是问句,实际上是感叹句,加强感情和语气。
  • I have been talking…我一直在给(他们)谈……。这是现在完成进行时的表达法,一般由have/has +been+现在分词构成,表示从过去某一时间一直持续到现在的动作或状态。
  • real: really, very. 确实。这是一个非正式用法,正式用法应该是really或very。
  • New Jersey:新泽西州。
  • to be alone with you:to stay with you without other people around.单独和你在一起。
  • get to: have the opportunity to do sth.有机会或时间做某事。例如:I haven't got to see any movie recently. 最近我一直没有机会看电影。
  • restless: not able to rest; feeling the need to do something. 不能休息的;闲不下来的。
  • time on my hands: time with nothing to do. 无法打发的时间。
  • particularly: In special manner, especially. 特别地,尤其。
  • retired: having given up one's job. 退职的,退休的。这种形容词由动词加-ed构成,类似的词还有 bored(厌烦的)、interested(感兴趣的)等。
  • Sounds good to me. It sounds good to me.这(主意)听着不错。这里的sound意思是“听来像,令人觉得”。另外这个句子省略了主语it。省略主语在口语里比较常见,例如:“Want something to drink?”的完整形成为“Do you want something to drink?”。
  • lamb chops: a cut of meat from a lamb. 羊肉。
  • mashed potatoes: 土豆泥。
  • tossed green salad: 蔬菜色拉。
  • put my mind to good use: to use my intelligence well. 施展我的才能。
