猴年马月终来到,英语怎么说? 成都英语口语培训

截止时间:

  

  小伙伴们,2016年就是猴年哟,阴历五月是“马月”,因此,对应到人们熟知的公历,今年6月5日至7月3日期间就是“猴年马月”,共计29天。

  在民间话语中,猴年马月意味着某件事或某个愿望,几乎没有实现的可能。猴年马月的来历目前没有权威考据,复旦大学中文系著名古汉语专家骆玉明教授在查阅相关典籍后表示,这个词多半是来自民间的谚语。一种流行的说法认为,“猴年马月”是“何年嘛月”谐音的变体,而在英语中,“猴年马月”通常被翻译为“One of these years”。

  猴年马月(hóu nián mǎ yuè),literally meaning “Horse month of the Monkey year”, indicates something that cannot be done within a predictable period of time, or the chance of success is slim.

  例句:

  等他找到女朋友?估计得猴年马月了!

  When he finds a girlfriend? Good luck waiting!

  这家公司猴年马月也不可能成功。

  The company will never succeed.

  

  Based on the Chinese lunar calendar, each animal in the zodiac not only represents one year, but also symbolizes a particular month. For example, the rat corresponds to the 11th month in a lunar year and an ox refers to the 12th. The "Horse month of Monkey year" only appears once every 12 years. Therefore the idiom is used to refer to a date in the unforeseeable future.

  However, 2016 is the year of Monkey, and the month of the horse falls from June 5 to July 3. As the seemingly distant future is nearly upon us, the topic has created a lot of buzz online. Many netizens are describing 2016 as a good year, as they believe their best efforts will finally pay off this year.

  

  例句:

  我妈说我猴年马月才能找到女朋友,终于到时间了。

  My mum said that I can only find a girlfriend in 'Horse month of Monkey year'. Guess what? The time is coming!

  老板曾经很严肃地告诉我,到了猴年马月我才能涨工资。我看了了日历,有盼头啦!

  My boss once seriously told me that my salary would not go up until the 'Horse month of the Monkey year'. When I looked at the calendar, I knew I had something to look forward to this year!
