Feifei
Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English from BBC Learning English. 大家好,我是馮菲菲。

Rob
And hi, I’m Rob. Hey Feifei, why the long face?

Feifei
What’s wrong with my face?

Rob
I mean, why are you looking so… grumpy?

Feifei
Grumpy 煩躁?

Rob
Yes… moody.

Feifei
Moody? There’s nothing wrong – this is my normal face. Why are you throwing so many insults at me?

Rob
Oh come on, you do look a bit bad-tempered.

Feifei
我沒有生氣啊。But I’m getting angry now.

Rob
Ah great! Then I can describe you as ‘mardy’.

Feifei
Mardy? I hope that’s not another insult.

Rob
It’s not an insult – but ‘mardy’ does describe someone who is in a bad mood, moans a lot and gets annoyed easily. So, thanks for demonstrating that, Feifei!

Feifei
My pleasure! 在英式英語裡,形容詞 “mardy” 可以用來描述一個人總是拉著個臉,好像大家都欠他似的,並且煩躁易怒。That’s not me! Let’s hear some examples.

Examples
There are no desks for Pedro to work at today so he has to sit on the sofa – no wonder he’s so mardy.

My boyriend is always so mardy – nothing seems to please him. Maybe I shouldn’t have come home drunk last night!

Steer clear of me today. I only had four hours’ sleep last night and I’m really mardy today.

Feifei
這裡是 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。這集節目裡教給大家的形容詞 “mardy” 可以用來描述一個人拉著個臉,抱怨周遭的一切,非常情緒化、鬱鬱寡歡的樣子。As I was saying, Rob, I am not mardy!

Rob
Hmm, if you say so, Feifei.

Feifei
But I know something to make you mardy.

Rob
Oh yes?

Feifei
You’re going to have to record this programme again.

Rob
What? Again? Why?

Feifei
因為你忘了解釋 “mardy” 可以形容人悶悶不樂 sulky,或脾氣暴躁 grumpy。

Rob
Hmm, you’re just being awkward. I am not going to start this programme again – I’m too busy. I’m off to get a coffee. Goodbye!

Feifei
Ha. Who’s mardy now? Or is he just acting? Bye.
