in a brown study

 

brown在365bet官方中最早的意思是“gloomy暗的、阴郁的”。由此,形成了一种悲观或严肃的感觉。而study除了表示学习,也指幻想、沉思,后来慢慢的brown study就用来指因为思考的太深入而出神、忧郁的状态,意思是苦思冥想、出神、放空。

 

棕色

 

in a reverie and absorbed in your thoughts

沉浸在遐想中

某人在沉思,遐想

in a brown

冥思苦想中

例:I tried to attract his attention, but he was in a brown study.

我企图引起他的注意,但他在沉思而无所觉。


brown-nose

brown-nose是“阿谀奉承”的意思,尤其用于下级对上级,相当于俗语中的“拍马屁”、“马屁精”之意。下次如果见到有人对上司拍马屁,就可以说:He's brown-nosing. 当然,这里是朋友间开玩笑的话。

拍马屁

例:

The rest of the class were sick of watching him brown-nose.班里的其他人讨厌看他拍马屁的样子。

这个表达的意思是你自己在家做午饭带到工作的地方去,而不用再出去买饭。因为最早人们用棕色的牛皮纸包装盒饭,慢慢就形成了这个固定搭配。
