  • 英语情景对话:
     
    A: Do you know that Jack got divorced last month.
    你知不知道,杰克上个月离婚了。
     
    B: For what reason.
    是什么原因导致的呢?
     
    A: Jack always lives by his wits and he cannot support his family.
    杰克总是靠小聪明混日子,根本不能养活他的家人。
     
    B: He had better make a change.
    他最好改改。
     
    习语:
     
    live by one’s wits
     
    解词释义:
     
    wit的本义是“智力,智慧”,by在这里表示方式,意思是“通过,靠,借助”。该短语的字面意思就是“靠智慧生活”,但是它是贬义词,所以live by one’s wits就是指“靠耍小聪明而不踏踏实实过日子”,即我们说的“混日子”。
     
    支持范例:
     
    Eg. Perhaps you may live by your wits but I don't hope so.
    也许你可以靠小聪明混日子,但我不希望你这样。
     
    Eg. He couldn't get a permanent job so I had to live by my wits for a couple of years.
    他没能找到长久的工作,因此这两年来我只能靠骗人吃饭。
