今天大家来学习这个俚语表达:

off the hook

 

off the hook这个习惯用语是从钓鱼来的,最早的时候是指一条本来已经咬钩的鱼又脱了钩,重获自由,后来到十九世纪中叶,才引伸为摆脱困境和摆脱责任。


请看下面的例句:

 

1.Seeing that he couldn't answer the question, I tried to get him off the hook by changing the subject.

看到他那个问题答不上来,我就设法换个话题让他摆脱窘境。

 

2.If you are caught coming in late again, you won't get off the hook so easily anymore.

如果大家再发现你晚回来,绝不会轻易放过你!
