                “吃药”可不是“eat medicine”!地道说法是...

                2020-02-13 19:52:40  每日学英语

                在我们△的日常生活中,

                只要是关于吃的英文表达,

                大家是不是首先想到的是单词eat,

                如果你的第一反应是“吃”等于eat,

                那在英语表达中

                就会吃亏的。

                 

                吃药

                 

                比如说“吃药”这个短语

                能翻译成“eat medicine”吗?

                回答肯定是“No”

                You never eat your medicine, you always take it.

                你绝对不能eat你的药,而是应该▅用take。

                The reason that it will always be take and never eat, is because Prescription is derived from the Latin word recipe (ré-kí-peh), which roughly means take this. Regardless of the form, whether injected, imbibed (drank), transfused, absorbed transfermally, implanted surgically or ingested (as with pills), it will always be to take medicine.

                用take而不用eat的原■因大致是因为Prescription (处方、药)这个词来源于拉丁语①单词recipe (re-ki-peh),大致意思就是“服用(take this)”。无论是什么形♂式的,不管是注射进去、喝进去、输血进去、转移〗性吸收进去、手术植入进去,或是通过药消化进去,都可以用take表示。

                Eating means putting food in your mouth, chewing it and then swallowing it.

                而吃只是意味着把食物放■进嘴里,咀嚼,然后吞咽的ㄨ过程。

                正确的说法应该是:

                 

                吃药

                 

                ①take/have some medicine

                medicine经常与some或sb's搭配

                ②take ... pills

                pill可指药丸

                如果想←表达具体一点,

                比如「吃几片药丸→」,

                可以说

                take 1-2 pills daily

                每天1到2片(药丸)

                take 3 pills twice a day

                每次3片(药丸),每天2次

                例:

                Her doctor says she has to rest and take medicine twice a day.

                医生说她必须休↓息,并且每天要吃两次药。

                 

                吃药
