Welcome to the Voice of America's "News Words," where we teach you about words in the news.

欢迎收听美国之音新闻词汇节目,在这里,我们教授新闻中出现的词汇。

Listen to this U.S. political expert. He is talking about mistakes conservative Republicans made in 2013 during the Virginia state governor's race.

听一听这个美国政治学专家的发言,他谈到2013年佛吉尼亚州州长选举中,保守的共和党人所犯的错误。

They were seen as irresponsible, as willing to endanger the country's present and future because of rigid ideology. That doesn't sell in America. We are a very pragmatic country.

为了守住自己僵化的观念,而将国家的现在和将来置于险境,他们这样是不负责任的表现,这在美国行不通,因为美国是一个非常务实的国家。

Pragmatic. This word means to be reasonable. In our story, the professor means that Americans would rather be realistic than support political ideas that might not work.

Pragmatic意指合理、理性。在这则新闻中,这位教授的意思是美国人宁愿现实一点,也不会支持可能行不通的政治理念。

Now, the next time you hear "pragmatic," your American English will be good enough to know what this word means.

下次再听到pragmatic,你的美式英语就好到能够听懂这个新闻词汇的意思啦。
