大家好,歡迎收聽 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我是佳瑩。

Neil
… and me, Neil.

Jiaying
What is that? 你吃什麼呢?

Neil
Oh, just some really expensive cheese – you can tell it’s expensive cause it’s got lots of blue in it!

Jiaying
I don’t think it’s meant to be that colour – I think it’s mouldy. It’s the smell for me!

Neil
What? The smell for you? You mean you want to smell like the cheese I’m eating?

Jiaying
Definitely not! 在口語中,我們可以用 「it’s the… for me」 這個句式來表示 「自己喜愛或受不了某人或某物的主要原因在於……」,只要在 「it’s the」 和 「for me」 的中間填上讓你產生強烈好惡感的那個特點即可。比如,我剛剛說,Neil 正在吃的奶酪氣味特別沖,讓我接受不了:「It’s the pungent smell for me.」

Neil
You know – I think it’s the fact it’s covered in blue stuff for me! I might stop eating it!

Jiaying
Good idea, Neil! Well, let’s talk more about things that stand out after these examples.

Examples
I can’t stand that new song! It’s the way she sings the high notes for me!

I really love that new TV show. It’s the way they write it for me!

It’s the sound for me! The noise he makes when eating is disgusting!

你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。以上,我們介紹了句型:「it’s the… for me」 的意思和用法。我們用這個結構來談論人或物的一個特徵,表示 「這一點就是我們特別喜歡或者受不了這個人或事物的原因」。

Neil
Yes, so if I want to say what I love most about video games, I’d say it’s the stories for me!

Jiaying
Exactly! But obviously it’s used more when we’re complaining about something or someone – like the cheese you’re eating!

Neil
Was eating! I’m afraid you’re right about the smell! But it was the taste for me! It’s disgusting!

Jiaying
I can imagine! But where did you get the cheese?

Neil
Rob gave it to me – I think it was a present!

Jiaying
No, Neil – that wasn’t for eating, he was throwing away some old cheese from the fridge!

Neil
Oh, no – I think I’d better sit down!

Jiaying
Good idea! Bye, Neil.

Neil
Bye…
