Hello everyone and welcome back to Love English.

大家好,欢迎回到爱英语。

Im Sabrah, your British University English teacher.

我是萨布拉,英国大学的英语老师。

Now Ive got a bit of a fun lesson for you today.

今天我为你们准备了一堂有趣的课。

And this is because as many of you know I am expecting a baby.

因为你们很多人都知道我怀孕了。

My baby is due very soon, in fact, in a couple of weeks so scary times.

我的孩子很快就要出生了,事实上,再过几个星期就要出生了。

But I wanted to share with you ten expressions that all have "baby" in them.

今天我想和大家分享十个都含有baby的表达方式。

The first is: to take baby steps, to take baby steps.

第一个是:to take baby steps(小步前进;谨慎)。

And this is when you take little steps, because you want to be careful in a particular situation.

这是你需要采取小步骤的时候,因为你需要在特定的情况下小心。

And it could be that the situation needs a certain level of care or caution.

这种情况可能需要一定程度的关注或谨慎。

For example, many countries are starting to open up again after the coronavirus, after the lockdown.

例如,在冠状病毒之后,在封锁之后,许多国家开始再次开放。

But theyre taking baby steps.

但是他们还在小步前进。

Theyre not doing it all at once.

他们不是一下子开放。

Theyre going very slowly, taking little steps.

他们走得很慢,是一小步一小步的。

So well often say "okay, dont do it all at once, baby steps." An example would be: "after the economic crash, the country is taking its first baby steps towards a more financially stable future." Number two is: to be left holding the baby, to be left holding the baby.

所以我们会经常说:好吧,不要急于求成,小步前进。"一个案列是:在经济崩溃之后,这个国家正朝着财政更加稳定的未来迈出第一步。"第二:to be left holding the baby(不得不独自撑起一个困难的局面)。

And this means left with the responsibility.

这意味着要承担责任。

So basically if youre left holding the baby, this is where other people have decided they dont want to be responsible for this particular thing anymore or dont want to have as much to do with it and so theyve left you, shouldering the most responsibility.

基本上,如果你被留下来抱孩子,这就是其他人决定他们不想再为这件事负责,或者不想和这件事有太多关系,所以他们让你承担了大部分的责任。

So if I left Love English, Im not going to guys, dont worry but if I did leave Love English Leila would be left holding the baby.

如果我离开了爱英语,我不会的,别担心,但如果我离开了爱英语,莱拉必须一个人承担责任。

Another example might be when the Prime Minister resigned, the Chancellor was left holding the baby.

另一个案列可能是,当首相辞职时,总理不得不承担责任。

Number three is: dont throw the baby out with the bathwater.

第三点是:dont throw the baby out with the bathwater(在扔掉你不要的东西时把宝贵的东西都无意地一起扔掉了)。

This is a great expression and basically this means dont get rid of something good because you want to get rid of something bad.

这是一个很好的表达,基本上它的意思是不要因为你想摆脱不好的事情而丢失好的事情。

So in many situations, therere positives and negatives and so maybe to get rid of the negative we would also have to get rid of the positive.

在很多情况下,事情有积极的一面,也有消极的一面,所以也许为了摆脱消极的一面,我们也必须摆脱积极的一面。

So for example a person might say when she quit her job because her ex was working there she really threw the baby out with the bathwater.

例如,一个人可能会说,当她辞职的时候,因为她的前任在那里工作,她真的把宝贵的东西都无意地一起扔掉了。

Or we can say dont throw the baby out with the bathwater, just because youre not talking to your sister, it doesnt mean you have to ignore your whole family.

或者我们可以说,在扔掉你不要的东西时把宝贵的东西都无意地一起扔掉了,仅仅因为你不和你妹妹说话,并不意味着你必须忽视你的整个家庭。

So its basically like saying "dont take such drastic action as youre going to get rid of the good as well as the bad." You cant separate them.

这基本上的意思是说不要采取如此激烈的行动,因为你会把好的和坏的都处理掉。"你不能把他们分开。

Next one is: to have a baby face, to have a baby face.

下一个是:to have a baby face(有娃娃脸)。

And this means a young and youthful face.

这意味着有一张年轻的脸。

So often people who maybe have chubby cheeks might have a babyface.

通常那些脸颊胖乎乎的人会有一张娃娃脸。

So we might say, "I cant believe hes 40. Hes still got a babyface." We might say he doesnt look old enough to go into a nightclub.

我们可能会说,我真不敢相信他40岁了。他还有一张娃娃脸。"我们可能会说他看起来还没到去夜总会的年龄。

Hes still got a babyface.

他有一张娃娃脸。

So a young, youthful face I would say that Britney Spears used to have quite a babyface and Brad Pitt when he was younger he had a real babyface.

一张年轻的脸,我会说布兰妮·斯皮尔斯曾经有一张娃娃脸,布拉德·皮特年轻的时候有一张真正的娃娃脸。

But its a particularly youthful look about the face and often this can be quite an attractive feature.

但这是一张特别年轻的脸,通常这是一个很有吸引力的特征。

The next one is: to be a crybaby, to be a crybaby.

接下来是:to be a crybaby(爱哭鬼)。

So a person who cries easily, who isnt mature, often we talk about children in this way, then it could be a teenager or even an adult if they were behaving like this.

一个容易哭的人,一个不成熟的人,我们经常这样谈论孩子,我们也会这么说一个青少年,甚至是一个成年人,如果他们也这么做的话。

So we might say, "oh, come on dont be such a crybaby. You cant always have your own way." Or, "dont be such a crybaby. You only got a scratch." So things like this, its somebody who cries easily and its a little immature or unnecessary.

所以我们可能会说,哦,得了吧,别这么爱哭。你不能总是按自己的意愿行事。"或者,别这么爱哭。你只是有一点擦伤。"所以像这样的事情,这是一个容易哭的人,这是有点不成熟或不必要的。

To be a crybaby.

爱哭鬼。

Number six is: a baby boomer.

第六是:a baby boomer(生育高峰的小孩)。

Have you heard that this before, guys?

朋友们,你们以前听说过这个说法吗?

We also refer to the baby boom generation.

我们也指婴儿潮一代。

And this was a period in history after the Second World War.

这是第二次世界大战后的一段历史。

This was of course because the soldiers had come back from the war and obviously they wanted to have a good time again and be reunited with their loves.

这当然是因为士兵们已经从战争中回来了,显然他们想再次度过一段美好的时光,与他们的爱人团聚。

And so we saw a huge boom in the number of babies born.

所以我们看到了出生婴儿数量的巨大增长。

For example, my mother, shes a baby boom generation so its the generation born after the Second World War.

例如,我的母亲,她是婴儿潮一代,是第二次世界大战后出生的一代。

I dont know if you refer to that in your countries, guys.

朋友们,我不知道在你们国家你们是否提到过这个。

But we will call these people boomers or baby boomers.

但我们会称这些人为婴儿潮一代。

Number seven is very similar, a baby boom, just means a huge increase in the amount of babies born.

第七个与前一个非常相似,婴儿潮,意味着出生婴儿数量的巨大增长。

As you know "boom": means an increase usually a sudden one, or it can mean a sound.

如你所知,boom:意味着增长通常是突然的,它也可以指一种声音。

But here were talking about an increase.

但这里我们说的是增加。

So we might say, "gosh, theres three ladies pregnant in the office. Its a real baby boom." Number eight is: baby talk, baby talk.

所以我们可能会说,天哪,办公室里有三个怀孕的女人。这是真正的婴儿潮。"第八条是:baby talk(模仿儿语)。

And this is what couples do to each other or sometimes even friends.

这发生在夫妻之间,有时甚至是朋友之间的关系。

And its where you talk in a more childlike voice to be cute or appealing or sweet towards your partner or even towards your friend.

在这里,你可以用更孩子气的声音对你的伴侣,甚至是你的朋友说些可爱、吸引人或甜蜜的话。

So I have to admit that as cheesy as it is my boyfriend and I do sometimes baby talk to each other.

所以我不得不承认这有点俗气,虽然我和我的男朋友有时候会像婴儿一样说话。

We try to not be too cheesy, but it is I suppose a natural thing that couples will often do.

我们尽量不要太俗气,但我想这是夫妇们经常做的一件自然的事情。

So you might say "Oh, baby please, will you go into the shop and get me some ice cream, please." Do you have a baby talk with your partner?

所以你可能会说,哦,宝贝,请你去商店给我买些冰淇淋,好吗?"你和你的伴侣会模仿耳语吗?

Go on, admit it below in the comments.

继续,在下面的评论里承认你们这么做了。

Number nine is: your baby daddy or your baby mama.

第九是:奶爸奶妈。

This really comes from American English.

这个说法来自美式英语。

And were probably only just adopting it now in the UK.

我们现在可能会在英国用它。

Your baby daddy is of course your babys father.

奶爸当然是你小宝宝的爸爸。

We might say "oh, hes my baby daddy" or for example, "oh, my baby mama." Like its quite nice I supposed to hear your partner say, "looking out for my baby mama", this kind of thing.

我们可能会说哦,他是奶爸,或者例如,哦,奶妈。"好像我应该听到你的伴侣说照顾好奶妈,这种事情很好。

But it is very American English.

但这是美式英语。

Youll hear it in a lot of American films things like that.

你会在很多美国电影中听到这样的话。

But as I said, we are adopting it now in the UK.

但正如我所说,我们现在正在英国用它。

Number 10 the last one.

第十是最后一个。

This is: to say something is your baby, to say something is your baby.

这就是:to say something is your baby(视若珍宝)。

And this is where something is particularly precious to you.

这里有对你来说特别珍贵的东西。

So it could be a project, it could be your house it could be your work, but its something which is so precious to you, its almost like your child.

它可能是一个项目,可能是你的房子,可能是你的工作,但它对你来说是如此珍贵,它几乎就像你的孩子。

So I have to say that in many ways Love English has been Leila and Is baby.

所以我不得不说,在很多方面,爱英语一直是莱拉和我的宝贝。

Its been precious to us.

这对我们来说很珍贵。

Weve cared about it, a lot, weve put a lot of work in.

我们很关心这件事,我们做了很多工作。

So its been our baby, been very precious.

我们视若珍宝,非常珍贵。

Of course, when I have my real baby, I might not be able to say that anymore.

当然,当我有了我真正的孩子,我可能再也不能这么说了。

Do tell me below guys, whats your baby is theres something in your life that is your baby right now.

请告诉我,你的宝贝是什么,在你的生活中你对什么视若珍宝?

Right everyone, that is the end of todays lesson.

各位,今天的课到此结束。

A simple lesson but hopefully a fun one.

简单但希望是有趣的课程。

And you can quickly start using some of that useful vocabulary.

你可以很快开始使用一些有用的词汇。

Well see you soon guys on Love English.

我们很快就会在爱英语上再见。
