chicken的详细讲解:

词语用法

n.(名词)
  1. chicken可以指作为家禽的鸡,也可指作为食品的鸡肉。作“小鸡”解时是个体名词,可数; 作“鸡肉”解时则是物质名词,不可数。
  2. chicken还可作动词解,常与out连用,意思是“因害怕而打退堂鼓”。例如:I used to ski but I've chickened out.我过去滑雪,但现在打退堂鼓了。John was courageous and manly when others chickened out.当别人都害怕打退堂鼓了,可约翰却是勇气十足的,有个男子汉气魄。

常见错误

n.(名词)
  1. 鸡下蛋了。

    The chicken laid an egg.

    The hen laid an egg.

    能下蛋的是成熟的母鸡,应该用hen; chicken是指小鸡,尚不到成熟期。

词源解说

  • ☆ 直接源自中古英语的chkien;最初源自古英语的cycen,意为小公鸡。
