- “和某人开玩笑”是joke with sb; “拿某事开玩笑”是joke about sth; “拿某事和某人开玩笑”是joke with sb about sth。习语You must be〔have got to be〕 joking的意思是“你一定是(在)开玩笑”。
- make a joke, make fun
- 这两个短语后接的介词不同, make fun后接of; make a joke后接about。例如:
- Don't make fun of an old man.
- Don't make a joke about an old man.
- Don't make a joke about an old man.
- Don't play a joke on an old man.
- Don't have a joke with an old man.
- joke, jest
- 1.jest主要指引人发笑的戏言; 而joke则不仅指开玩笑的“言”,而且还指恶作剧的“行”。例如:
- Don't jest with the little girl.不要戏弄这个小女孩。
误 Don't take my words to heart; they were said only in jokes.
正 Don't take my words to heart; they were said only in a joke.
析 “开玩笑”是in a joke,不用复数形式jokes。
