名人教英文:有关气味的惯用语

smell作为名词时解作气味,作动词时则可解为嗅到或发出气味。

smell something/ somewhere up指令某对象或地方沾有难闻的气味。例如:i knew mary was around as her perfume had already smelled the room up.

smell亦指凭直觉察觉到。例如:i could smell trouble as he walked to me looking irritated (烦躁).

smell a rat比喻感觉到某人或某事有不妥,虽然一下子不能清楚说出问题何在。例如:the company claims that it made huge profits last year, but i smell a rat.

不同的「气味」可用来比喻不同的事态。smell fishy用以形容令人怀疑的事物,例如:the report, which claims the company made huge profits last year, smells fishy to me. 顺带一提,rat可以指骗子,而fishy一字本身也可用来形容可疑的人或事。

come out/up smelling like roses解作经历诚信危机后,声誉仍然没有受损。例如:he came up smelling like roses despite the rumour (传言) that he was involved in money laundering (洗黑钱).
