大家好,歡迎收聽由 BBC英語教學製作的 「地道英語」 節目,我是佳瑩。

Neil
… and me, Neil. You look tired today! Are you OK?

Jiaying
我還好。對了,昨天晚上你看那部新出的遊戲 「Fishing Dragons」 的直播了嗎?

Neil
No – it was too late for me! Was the game any good?

Jiaying
It was lit!

Neil
What do you mean lit? The stream was on fire – or the dragons catch fish by lighting them on fire? What are you talking about?

Jiaying
哎呀,不是啦。雖然動詞 「light(點燃)」 的過去分詞也是 「lit」,但在口語中,人們常常用 「lit」 形容一件事情 「很酷,很棒」。所以我剛剛說 「The game was lit」,意思其實是 「那部遊戲超贊」!

Neil
Ah… that’s what you meant by 『lit’! And do the dragons catch fish with fire?

Jiaying
Of course not – they use the power of their minds! Let’s talk more about it after these examples.

Examples
John’s new car is lit! It’s so amazing!

I joined a virtual dance party last night and it was lit – there was a DJ and everyone had an amazing time.

Erica said that new film was lit, but I thought it was a bit disappointing. I didn’t like the plot or characters.

你正在收聽的是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。上面,我們為大家介紹了流行語 「lit」 的意思和用法。我們用形容詞 「lit」 來表示一件事情 「很棒,超贊」。

Neil
Yes, that’s right! For example, that video game we played is lit! You can also say that something is 『fire’ with the same meaning.

Jiaying
沒錯!在口語會話中,我們也可以用單詞 「fire」 來表達同樣的意思。比如:「that new song I listened to was fire」 或者 「that new song I listened to was lit」。

Neil
Which is why some people send a fire emoji on their phones. Is that why you sent me a message just now saying 『my food’ and then a fire emoji? Do you think my cooking was amazing?

Jiaying
Not this time! I’m afraid to say that your food really was on fire! Have you seen that thing in the bin?

Neil
What – the black mess? Is that my food – that looks disgusting.

Jiaying
Yeah – the taste definitely isn’t lit. Bye, Neil!

Neil
Bye.
