Body politic
A group of people organised under a single government or authority (national or regional) is a body politic.


Carpetbagger
A carpetbagger is an opportunist without any scruples or ethics, or a politican who wants to represent a place they have no connection with.


Economical with the truth
(UK) If someone, especially a politician, is economical with the truth, they leave out information in order to create a false picture of a situation, without actually lying.


Fifth columnist
(UK) A fifth columnist is a member of a subversive organisation who tries to help an enemy invade.


Fourth estate
This is an idiomatic way of describing the media, especially the newspapers.


Get on your soapbox
If someone on their soapbox, they hold forth (talk a lot) about a subject they feel strongly about.


Gunboat diplomacy
If a nation conducts its diplomatic relations by threatening military action to get what it wants, it is using gunboat diplomacy.


Megaphone diplomacy
If negotiations between countries or parties are held through press releases and announcements, this is megaphone diplomacy, aiming to force the other party into adopting a desired position.


On the stump
When politicians are campaigning for support and votes, they are on the stump.


Pork barrel
Pork barrel politics involves investing money in an area to get political support rather than using the money for the common good.

In one of the topics, dear reza had said this sentence:" let me touch the wood". the

meaning is pretty clear. I checked it in dictionary, and here is the explaination.

Touch wood (BrE) (AmE, knock on wood), Its American is more similar to Iranians,

isn't it?

used when u have just mentioned some way in which u have been lucky in the past,

to avoid bringing bad luck: I've been driving over 20 years and never had an

accident- touch wood! .
بزن به تخته.

another on with wood:D

Not see the wood for trees( AmE, not see the forest for the trees). To not see or understand the main point about sth, because u r paying much attention to small details.

Is there any equivalent in persian for this one?

Kick someone's ass

Hey guys,
I don't know if any of these has already been mentioned here or not but i give it a 50 out of 100 that I am the ace :cool:
going for a bender= بریم تا خرخره مشروب بخوریم
This one has been used about 100 years ago in England but still the yougsters are using it on daily conversations. On the old good days the 50 shilings coin was made out of silver and it was easy to bend it with teeth , it was also the money that you should have paid for 8 pints of larger ( 4liters of beer) and a packet of cigrette. so if they were saying let's go for a bender,it meant, let's go and spend 50 shilings on beers and get proper drunk.

upper crost=منصوب به کسی که از اشراف باشد. توانمند
again meny years ago when the bakers were making bread in england they were putting the paste on the hot ashes to cook. after the bread was cooked then it would be cut in to 2 halves horizentaly. the top bit which was called upper crost was for richest part of the society who could pay double on the price as it was nice and the bottom bit which was called lower crost was for the poor part of society who would not have enough money and they would recieve the bread with the burnt ash mixed with the bread. soon it became a saying between people to descreminate one from the other and today it is still in use between the crowd.

A human being should have humanity
ادمی را آدمیت لازم است

The more noble, the more humble
درخت هر چه بار آرد سر فرو آرد

Pleasant hours fly fast
زمان وقتی که خوش است زود می گذرد

The end of game you will see whom as winner
شاهنامه آخرش خوش است

Gaming, woman and wine, when they laugh they make men pine
وقتی که می و معشوق و قمار دست به دست هم میدهند آدمی را به غم و رنج و اندوه مبتلا می سازد

Neither extreme is good
هیچ افراط و تفریطی پایدار نیست
گاهی از سوراخ سوزن رد میشود گاهی از در هم رد نمیشو

Out of sight, out of mind
همینکه از دیده رفتی از دل هم میروی

Give credit, where credit is due
عیب ها جمله بگفتی...هنرش نیز بگوی

There is no color beyond black
بالاتر ا زسیاهی رنگی نیست

Two is company….three is none
ما صد نفر بودیم تنها......آنها دو نفر بودند همراه

Politeness cost nothing
ادب مرد به ز دولت اوست
با ادب باش تا بزرگ شوی

Late children, early orphans
بچه آخر عمری " زنگوله ی پای تابوت است

Soon hot is soon cold
عشق تند زود به سردی میگراید

Rome was not built in a day
گر صبر کنی ز غوره حلوا سازی

The first step is the hardest one
هرکاری اولش سخت است

Worth a world
یک 2نیا می ارزه


Come off your high hours
از خر شیطون بیا پایین

Eat your word
حرفتو پس بگیر


Costumer is always right.
همیشه حق با مشتری است

be clean with me
با من رو راست باش

Wall have ear
دیوار مش دلره موش هم گوش داره

Its up to u
میل خودته

Out of blue
مثه عجل معلق بودن

Easy come easy go
باد آورده را باد میبرد

Give me five
بزن قد ش

More catholic than pop
کاتولیگ تر از پا پ شدی
خرما رو به بم بردن

Walk u talk
به حرفت عمل کن

See not see

(دیگه معنیش که معلومه البته با عرض پوزش)

I plan it
در صدد هستم

Fear is the brother of death
هرکس ترسید مرد...هرکه نترسید برد

Who is fault,suspects every body
آدم گناهکار به همه مظنون است

The eye is bigger than belly
چشم پر به از دست پر است

If u wish the dog to follow you need him
نان بده فرمان بده

To fly with other wings

What ever comes from a friend is good
از دست دوست هر چه ستانی شکر بود

Love generates love
از دل به دل راه است

Love me little love me long
مرا کم دوست بدار ولی همیشه(کریستوفو مارلو)

Love is without reason
عشق منطق و قانون نمیشناسد

A mother love never ages
تا حیات است عشق مادری هست

Love is full of trouble
عشق درد نیست ولی به درد آرد


Old love doesn’t rust
ای خوش آن روزگار دیرینه عشق دیرین و یار دیرینه

All is fair in love and war
عشق و رشک از هم جدا هستند

Love speaks even the lips are closed
گر چه تفسیر زبان روشنتر است لیک عشق بیزبان روشنتر است

No pay …. No piper
گربه ای که موش میگیرد نه از بهر خداست

The bird loves her nest
هیچ جا بهتر از خانه ی آدم نیست

Leave of absence مرخصي بدون حقوق
Absence makes the heart grow fonder دوري و دوستي
He was looking at me in an absent way جاي ديگري بود به من نگاه مي كرد در حاليكه حواسش
In these animals the tail is absent دمدار نيستند اين حيوانات
The absent party is always to blame است كه تنها به قاضي مي رود هميشه حق با كسي
Long absent, soon forgotten از دل برود هر آنكه از ديده برفت
We express our deepest condolence for your misfortune
به مناسبت مصيبت وارده عميق ترين تسليت خود را ابراز مي داريم
Mucus of the nose: آب بيني
All the seas of the earth تمام آب هاي زمين
At the end of در پايان
At the foot of در شروع
At the mercy of وابسته به...…

His business is brisk: كسب او رونق دارد
To give a curt negative reply: آب پاكي را روي دست كسي ريختن
To risk one’s life: خود را به آب و آتش زدن
To become free of danger: آب از آسياب افتادن
An honorable death is better than an inglorious life: مردن با عزت به از زندگي در مذلت است
An injury forgiven is better than an injury revenged در عفو لذتي است كه در انتقام نيست
A sound mind is in a sound body: عقل سالم در بدن سالم

There is no fool like an old full
سر پیری و معرکه گیری

Life is battle, not a feast
دنیا جای آزمایش است نه آسایش

Cheating play never thrives
بار کج به منزل نمیرود

To carry water in a sieve
آب در هاون سائیدن

Put an old cat to an old cat
شعال بیشه مازندران را نگیرد جز سگ مازندرانی


To make an empty compliment
آب حمام به هم تعارف کردن

There is time for every thing

People of the same level understand each other

If u are physician, heal yourself
کل اگر طبیب بودی سر خود دوا نمودی

Saying and doing are two different thing
ز قول تا عمل چند هزار فرسنگ فاصله است

Better, beg than steal
گدایی به از دزدی است

Man needs wisdom rather than gold
آدمی را عقل می یابد نه زر

A wise man avoid edged tools
غایت جهل بود مشت زدن سندان را

He who can do any thing. Can do nothing
همه کاره و هیچ کاره

To put the cart before the horse
لقمه را از پشت سر خوردن

All is fair in love and war
میان دعوا حلوا نمیدهند

Failure teaches success
شکست مقدمه پیروزی است

Grey hair are death’s blossom
موی سفید نشانه مرگ است

Habit is second nature
عادت طبیعت ثانوی است
Two hand are better than one
یه دست صدا نداره

A good dog deservers a good bone
هر رفتی امدی دارد

Chinese food, Japanese wife and American life
غذا غذای چینی زن زنه ژاپنی زندگی زندگی امریکایی .

Few words are best
کم گوی گزیده گوی چون در تا ز اندک نو جهان شود پر

It’s the unexpected that constantly happens
از هرچه بدم میاد سرم میادFirst try and then wives.
مه نا ازموده مفر مای کار

Every one sees his picture in the water
افراد خوب همه را خوب و افراد بد همه را بد میبینند

Don’t love at the first look
با اولین نگاه عاشق نشو

Life is short, and time is swift
زندگی کوتاه است و زمان به سرعت میگذرد

Face to face , the truth come out
چشم تو چشم بیفتد حیا میکند
حیای انسان در چشم اوست

A good character is better than a good face
به است از روی نیکو خویِ نیکو

The longest day must have an end
همیشه در دنیا به یک پاشنه نمیچرخد

There is four sorts of men:
_He who knows not and knows not he knows not;
He is a fool-shun him;
_He who knows not and knows he knows not;
He is simple –teach him;
_He who knows and knows not he knows.
He is asleep wake him;
_He who knows and knows he knows;
He is wise –follow him;

انسانها به چهار دسته تقسیم میشوند؟
_ آنکس که نداند و نداند که نداند –دیوانه ای بیش نیست از او بپرهیزید
_آنکس که نداند و بداند که نداند- او ساده لوحی بیش نیست تعلیمش دهید
_ انکس که بداند و نداند که بداند- او در خواب غفلت است بیدارش کنید
_آنکس که بداند و بداند که بداند- او عاقل است از او تاسی جوئید

In for a penny, in for a pound
آب که از سر گذشت چه یک نی چه صد نی

The heart’s letter is read in the eyes
چشمش را ببین دلش را بخوان

He that swear , will die.
دروغگویی و سوگند ملازم همدیگرند

We can’t lie down and cry ( god help us)
از تو حرکت از خدا برکت

When poverty comes in at the door love flies out of windows
وقتی که فقر از در وارد میشود عشق از پنجره پرواز میکند
تنگت نگرفته که عاشقی یادت برود

Man is the measure of all things
انسانها محور و معیار همه ارزشهایند

No man can serve two master
به یک روی در محراب بودن
نمیتوان در عین حال اش معاویه را خورد .هم نماز علی را خواند. هم طبال یزید بود هم علمدار حسین.هم اسب شمر را نعل کرد هم مشک حضرت عباس را دوخت. هم نماز شب خواند هم اب توی شیر کرد و .....

Hanging and winning go by destiny
ازدواج و اعدام هر دو جزو سرنوشته آدمی است
هر کجا داغ بایدت فرمود چون تو مرهم نهی ندارد سود

The devil isn’t as black he is painted
پیشداوری افراد در قضاوتها دخالت دارد

The devil dances in an empty pocket

The burnt child dreams the fire
مار گزیده از ریسمان سیاه سفید میترسد !

Great honors are great burdens.
آدمی هر چه فراتر مرود امکان فرو افتادنش نیز بیشتر میشود

Every one knows best where his shoe pinches
هیچ کس از درد کسی خبر ندارد
اموری تمثیل زیبایی دارد :
آن شنیدم که رفت نادانی ، به عیادت به درد دندانی
گفت باد است زین غم مباش ، گفت آری ولیک نزد تو این
درد من همچو کوه فولاد است، چون نو زان فارغی ترا باد است

I say “ it’s bull” but he tell me to milk it
آسمان ریسمان بافتن
من میگم نره تو میگی بدوش !
من میگم لباس ندارم اون میگه دامنت رو بگیر !
من از بند حسین در اضطرابم ، تو از عباس میگویی جوابم

To build castle in the air
کس نباید چشمه ی آب حیات اندر سراب
سودای خام در سر داشتن

You can not know the wine by the barrel
از ظاهر کسی نمیتوان به باطنش پی برد

Boil not the pape before the child is born
دیر اومده زود میخواد بره

Watched not never boils
انتظار بدترین حالت انسانی است !

It is very hard to shave an egg!
از روود خشک ماهی گرفتن


First try and then wives!
پرهیز از بی گدار به آب زدن و بی احتیاطی !

Two wrong do not make a right
One does not wash away blood with blood!
خون رو با خون نمیشورند !
آتش رو با آتش خاموش نمیکنند !

Practice makes perfect.
كار نيكو كردن از پر كردن است
Whatever seemed to be easy turnout to be difficult.
كه عشق آسان نمود اول ولي افتاد مشكل ها
Birds of a feather flock together.
كبوتر با كبوتر باز با باز
Nothing is quite impossible.
كار نشد ندارد
One good turn deserves another.
كاسه جايي رود كه باز آيد قدح
Don't leave off till tomorrow what you can do today.
كار امروز را به فردا مينداز
A burnt child dreads the fire.
مار گزيده از ريسمان سياه و سفيد مي ترسد
The grass is greener on the other side of the hill.
مرغ همسايه غاز است. ماست همسايه شيرين تر است
Murder will out.
ماه زير ابر پنهان نمي ماند
After death the doctor.
To lock the stable door after the horse has been stolen.
نوشدارو بعد از مرگ سهراب
You can't eat your cake and have it.
نمي شود هم خدا را بخواهي هم خرما را
Time is money
وقت طلاست
Jack of all trade.
A rolling stone gathers no mass.
همه كاره و هيچ كاره
It will be a feather in your cap.
هر گلي بزني به سر خودت زدي
If gold rusts, what then can iron do?
هر چه بگندد نمكش مي زنند ؛ واي به روزي كه بگندد نمك
All that glitters is not gold.
هر گردي گردو نيست
He who sows the wind shall reap.
هر كه خربزه مي خوره پاي لرزش مي شينه
A word to the wise ( is enough)
در خانه اگر كس است يك حرف بس است
A friend in need is a friend indeed.
دوست آن باشد كه گيرد دست دوست در پريشان حالي و درماندگي
All is well that ends well.
Don't count your chicken before they hatched.
He laughs best who laughs last.
شاهنامه آخرش خوش است.
To hope against hope.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
در نااميدي بسي اميد است ؛ پايان شب سيه سفيد است
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
دوري و دوستي

Stand up and be counted

Those who express their private opinions openly have concluded that it is time for them to stand up and be counted. They do this by writing, speaking, or voting on issues they consider important. " Excuse me, what's your opinion ? Why don't you stand up and be counted ? If you want to see some changes made, stand up and be counted !" " How many of you little fellows would like to go to market ? Hurry, stand up and be counted !" Henrietta Hen called.

Back to the salt mines

In Siberia, salt is found deep underground. Many years ago, prisoners were sent there and were forced to bring the salt to the surface. From that, back to the salt mines has come to mean hard work of any kind, and this humorous expression refers to going back to work. "The weekend is over it's time to get back to the salt mines." Oliver sighed as he and his friends walked to work.

Lead by the nose

"I fully understand that people don't like being led by the nose," Timothy said. " Most mice object to that too," he noted. "How do you elephants feel about it ?" I asked. The elephant he was leading didn't reply. To lead by the nose is to control someone. " And make them do what you want, " Timothy added.

Snatch something from under someone's nose

"When I go to bed at night I count sheep, "Angela said. "Where do you put the sheep when you are done counting them ?" Teddy asked. "If I told you, you would probably snatch them from under my nose," Angela replied. They both laughed, because to snatch something from under someone's nose is to take or steal something directly in front of someone.

Money does not grow on trees

William asked his boss for a raise. "I need more money because the cost of everything is going up," he said. The boss looked at William and sighed. "Let me be frank with you, William: Money doesn't not grow on trees." William signed and departed empty-handed because he knew that this expression means that money is not so plentiful that one can pick it off the trees like leaves.

Say cheese

If you look into a mirror and say the word "cheese", you will notice that you appear to be smiling. For that reason, photographers often ask you to say cheese when they are about to take your picture. "If you don't mind, would you look into the lens of my camera and say cheese?" Timothy asked. "And though you may look at my cheese and admire it, you may not have it. Just gaze at it, say cheese, and then I will return to eating it."

Get the hang of something

When Teddy trained for the circus, it took him no time at all to get the hang of being a trapeze artist. "Everything depends on getting the timing right," he explain. Meanwhile his partner has been having trouble getting the hang of working with him. "It's hard to swing and chew gum at the same time," she said. To get the hang of something means to learn how to do something.

Live in a vacuum

Timothy and Tina have moved to a new home. "It's so far from our family and friends that we feel isolated!" Tina said sadly. "We are so remote from everything that someone even accused me of living in a vacuum!" Timothy added. When people are said to live in a vacuum they are unaffected, unaware or don't care about what goes on in the world around them.

On a high horse

Someone on a high horse can be difficult to deal with. "There's an explanation for that," Hallaway said, " because someone on a high horse is haughty and proud -- and he may think he's better than anyone around him." Hallaway should know : he's been on his high horse ever since he got promoted. "Yes, I'm the boss of the riding club now," Hallaway declared.

Rest on one's laurels

The ancient Greeks awarded crowns of laurel leaves to the winners of games and competitions as a symbol of achievement. From that, those who are satisfied with past honors and do nothing to improve upon their successes are said to rest on their laurels. "Several years ago Haliburt won a trophy for excellence, but ever since then he has been resting on his laurels. Some people have said it's because he's lazy !

(as) black as one is painted

In this idiom, black doesn't refer to a color. Instead, it refers to someone's evil or wicked qualities. And the word painted here means 'describe'. Therefore, someone who is ( as ) black as he/she is painted is truly as sinister as he or she is portrayed. "I'm painting a picture of someone who is said to be a very naughty person," Robert said, "but to me he seems rather nice. Surely he can't be as black as he is painted !"

A (The) moving spirit

The spirit in this idiom is a lively, energetic person who plans an action and then sets it in motion. That's why he or she is described as a moving spirit. "If we want to win the championship, our team will have to find a coach who can be a moving spirit." Here's another example of the idiom: "Mr. Becker is the moving spirit behind our company's expansion plans."

In someone's shoes

To understand how someone feels or thinks, we should try to be in their shoes. To be in someone's shoes means to attempt to think as they think, or to put ourselves in the same situation that they are in. It may not be easy, but it's a valuable thing to keep in mind. "My grades aren't very good," Angela said. "If you were in my shoes, what would you do ?" "Well, if I were in your shoes I would discuss the matter with the teacher," Teddy replied.

With a light heart
Angela's teacher asked her to write a paper describing her weekend. "It was with a light heart that I went to the park," she wrote, " and with a light heart I went home. Furthermore, it is with a light heart that I look forward to going to the park next weekend," Angela concluded. This describes being filled with joy.

A flight of fancy
"Do you know what it's called when someone dreams or imagines something highly unusual or imaginative ?" Felix asked Sylvester. "I believe that is called a flight of fancy," Sylvester answered. "Correct," Felix smiled, "and yesterday, in a flight of fancy, I imagined I could fly !" "What good is a flight of fancy if nothing becomes of it ?" Sylvester smiled. "Climb on board and dream no more !"

Rock bottom
(1) Physically or emotionally, rock bottom means the very lowest. "It's like being way, way down at the bottom of the sea," Bighead said. "My spirits have touched rock bottom today and I feel miserable!" "If I were you, I wouldn't worry about him," Eggmont said. "He always says that he hits rock bottom when the tourist boats are due to arrive." (2) When you visit shops that advertise things at rock bottom prices, you expect to find the lowest prices in town. In money terms, rock bottom means the cheapest price. "A real estate agent told me it was still possible to find land selling at rock bottom on one of the nearby islands."

1.Teacher's Pet

A teacher's pet is a student who is favoured and given special attention by the teacher. "I am worried that the other kids might get jealous if they think I am teacher's pet," Teddy said. I don't think Teddy has to worry, for even though the students can see that he is teacher's pet, they know there are serious disadvantages to that. "That's because Professor Oxbridge can be pretty difficult to please !" Teddy explained.

The King's / Queen's English

The King and Queen act as though they have just met ! "Actually, we are here to explain the difference between the King's English and the Queen's English, " the King said. "In reality, there is no difference," the Queen added, " because these terms describe the very best and most correct English, and whether you call it the King's English or the Queen's English depends on who is on the throne of England at that moment, " she smiled

Meet someone halfway
When Chief Totem got news that explorers had set sail for his continent, he decided to meet them halfway. Hopping into his boat, he soon found them somewhere in the middle of the ocean. "I'd be ever so happy to show you the way to my lands if you will show me the way to yours," he smiled. There is no record of what the explorers replied, but it is well-known that to meet someone halfway is to cooperate with someone by agreeing to make compromises.

Count sheep

You won't find him counting sheep. He sleeps very well, thank you. I if this sounds odd it's because to count sheep is an old method of trying to get to sleep by counting imaginary lambs jumping over a fence in one's mind. "Poor father. I know I've disappointed him. I hope he doesn't lie in bed counting sheep thinking that I have failed him, " Sal sighed.

Blue Monday
To be blue is to be sad. Many people feel sad returning to work after a weekend of rest -- and that's the meaning behind blue Monday. "The weekend's over," Felix sighed, "and here it is, blue Monday, time to get back to the routine of work."

Play (a) cat-and-mouse (game)
Play a cat-and-mouse (game) is to deliberately confuse someone so that he or she does not know what is happening. "Christopher played a cat-and-mouse game with the management until finally resigning to go to work for our competitors. Until then, no one knew if he would stay or leave." "That fellow was playing a cat and mouse with me!" the boss exclaimed.

Go Bust
When a store or company has no money, it goes out of business. Colloquially, it goes bust. That makes me think of the time Felix sold balloons at the fair. "One by one, my balloons broke!" he said. "In no time at all, my business went bust!" Today, Felix has a much better job working for a large company. "There is no chance of it every going bust!" he said.

Live in a fishbowl / goldfish bowl
A person described as living in a fishbowl ( or in a goldfish bowl ) has absolutely no privacy. His every movement can be observed and he has no place to hide ... just as a fish living in a glass bowl. "I don't think I'd enjoy being a television star. It must be like living in a fish bowl."

(Like) water off a duck's back
Ducks aren't bothered by water because the oil in their feathers keeps moisture from reaching their bodies. Any water that gets on them runs right off. That has given us this expression, which we use to say that we are not annoyed by something. "School doesn't bother Mary. To her, doing homework is like water off a duck's back." Someone criticized Teddy, but he isn't bothered. " What do I care ? It's water of a duck's back to me," he said.

Top dog

A top dog is a person of authority and importance. One's boss, for instance, could be said to be the top dog in a company. Or it could be someone of importance politically. "I'm curious to know who the new top dog will be at the Office of trade," Winnie said.

"Look what I found!" Albert cried. "Why, it's a golden key!" Officer Mutt observed. "It reminds me that a golden key opens every door," Albert smiled. "Yes, I think it will open a door for you at my nice jail, " Mutt replied. Actually, the golden key here is money for it is assumed that money will let a person do anything he wants.

An Old Salt

"Look, there's an old salt coming off that ship!" Teddy exclaimed. "That looks like a sailor," Angela answered. "An experienced sailor is often called an old salt,"Teddy explained. "Is that because the sea is salty?" Angela asked. "That's right, but we don't call people who sail boats on weekends old salts,"Teddy said. "The term is reserved for sailors who have been to sea a long time.

Save one's breath

"It's too hot to work today," Eddie said. "Why don't we ask the boss if we can have the afternoon off ?" "Save your breath," his co-workers advised. Eddie asked the boss anyway, and she said the same thing. To save one's breath means to say nothing, usually because one's words have no value or will have no effect.

"And though you may look at my cheese and admire it, you may not have it. Just gaze at it, say cheese, and then I will return to eating it."

(as) black as one is painted

In this idiom, black doesn't refer to a color. Instead, it refers to someone's evil or wicked qualities. And the word painted here means 'describe'. Therefore, someone who is ( as ) black as he/she is painted is truly as sinister as he or she is portrayed. "I'm painting a picture of someone who is said to be a very naughty person," Robert said, "but to me he seems rather nice. Surely he can't be as black as he is painted !"

hi every body
what's the meaning of 'holy shit''

Shit carries an encompassing variety of figurative meanings. Of these, perhaps the most common are generic expressions of displeasure (as in, Shit!), fear (Oh, shit!), or surprise (Holy shit!).

The writer is a British SPY (!) in Iran called Shapur Ardeshir Jey (Reporter) ... Anyway, it's really excellent I think

Let's take a look at some of its expressions:

War is not exactly a picnic
در جنگ حلوا خيرات نمي كنند.

Don't you dare tell him
مبادا به او بگويي

Shame on you
تف به رويت !

Please don't stand on ceremony
لطفاً تعارف نكنيد

What is all this tomfoolery?
اين ديگر چه بازي است در آورده اي؟

Rumor has it that ...l
در افواه شايع است كه ...

For Pete's sake

با عرض سلام
من سعي دارم تو اين مطالب چند تا روش بهتون بگم تا به LISTENING و SPEAKING تون كمك بشه البته اين ها بر اساس تجربيات خودم ولي بعضي
هاشون منبع داره دوستان لطف كنن اگه اشكالي در اين مطالب مي بينن بگن تا بقيه گمراه نشن البته اين مطالب كلي و ممكن در بعضي موارد استثنا هايي نيز وجود
داشته باشه


نكته 1 استفاده كردن از مفعول به جاي فاعل در زبان عاميانه خيلي رايج است ولي بيشتربه جاي من،ما و انها استفاده مي شود (براي بقيه هنوز نشنيدم) مثال:


I want to get out به جاي Me wanna get out
they don't war with us به جاي them nah war widas
i know a pop star به جاي me know a pop star

نكته 2 استفاده از wanna and gonna به جاي want to and going to مثال:
i am going to send you a letter به جاي me gonna send you a letter


نكته 3 تلفظ ( T ) حرف t اگر آغزگر كلمه با شد تاكيد روي آن است مثل: tend,tear,take.....
اگر ا ين حرف در وسط كلمه باشد بايد بگم كه ( د ) تلفظ مي شود مثال:
beddy كه تلفظ مي شود betty
butter كه تلفظ مي شود butter
beaudy كه تلفظ مي شود beauty

اما اگر اين حرف در آخر كلمه بيا يد تلفظ نمي شو د

نكته 4 چ ،ج ، ش يا ي

حتما شما هم شنيده اي كه آمريكايي ها بعضي وقت ها you را چو،شو،جو و يا يو تلفظ مي كنن حالا چگونه بفهميم كه چه موقع با يد ازكدام استفاده كنيم. اگر يك كلمه به ( T ) ختم شود و كلمه ي بعد با ( Y ) شروع شود در اين هنگام است كه ما you را چو تلفظ مي كنيم.مثال:
don choo know that is don't you know
wa choo said that is what you said
wa chour name that is what is your name
can choo see that is can't you see
haven choo?nou, na chet that is haven't you?no,not yet
i gochoo that is i got you
وقتي كلمه اي به ( S ) ختم شود و كلمه ي بعدي با (Y ) شروع شود تلفظ شو مي شود.مثال:
yeshoo are that is yes.you are
bleshoo that is bless you
canchoo dreshor self that is can't you dress your self
let im gashor car that is let him gas your car
you can pashor exam that is you can pass your exam

وقتي كلمه اي به ( D ) ختم شود و كلمه ي بعدي با ( Y ) شروع شود تلفظ جو مي باشد.مثال:
di joo geti that is did you get it
i foun jer key that is i found your key
در بعضي موارد ya وyo نيز تلفظ مي شود به جاي you قانون خاصي در اين مورد وجود ندارد
اين گفته ها قانون نيستند ولي در اكثر موارد مي توانيد از آنها استفاده كنيد

نكته 5 تفاوت gonna and gotta
واژه ي gonna مخفف going to مي باشد و معناي ان «قصد داشتن » مي باشد در حالي كه gotta مخففhave] got to] مي باشد يعني «مجبور بودن»
gotta go بايد برم
i'm gonna follow her قصد دارم تعقيبش كنم

نكته 6 عبارات زير بيش از حد كوتاه شدند اونا را ياد بگيريد براتون خوبه!!!
Jeet? that is did you eat?
no, Joo? that is no, did you?
whyncha ged e job? that is why don't you get a job?
i dunno,stoo hard that is i don't know, it's too hard
Kwee gou? that is could we go?
Sko that is let's go

نكته 7 تلفظ نشدن حرف (G ) در آخر،اكثرا در فعل هايي كه به آنها ing مي دهيم مثال:
starting به جاي starin
nothing به جاي nuttin
gambling به جاي gamblin
stealing به جاي stealin

نكته 8 استفاده كردن از مفعول به جاي صفت ملكي نيز پركاربرد است پس تا اينجا از مفعول هم به جاي فاعل استفاده مي شود و هم به جاي صفت ملكي براي
فاعل فقط جايگزين i , we , they يعني به جاي اين سه بايد me , us , them بگذاريم و از بين اين دو از me و them خيلي استفاده مي شود و از
us كمترو حال به جاي صفت ملكي همان طور كه مي دانيد her هم صفت ملكي است و هم مفعول پس آن را كنار مي گذاريم دوباره بحث روي me
مي باشد يعني از اين كلمه به جاي my استفاده مي شود به طور خيلي گسترده و براي بقيه هنوز نشيندم شايد خيلي به ندرت از them نيز به جاي their
استفاده شود.مثال:
my name به جاي me name
my flame به جاي me flame
my car به جاي me car
نكته 9 تلفظ واژه ي car در بوستون آمريكا به صورت cah مي باشد يعني بوستوني ها r را تلفظ نمي كنند وجه تشخيص خوبي است براي شناختنشون!
? where can i park my car? يعني whe can i pak my cah

نكته 10 استفاده كردن از ain't براي منفي كردن ain't صورت ادغام شده ي aren't و isn't مي باشد و همچنين به جاي am not و has not و have not
ain't it funny?
you ain't stop us now?
you ain't crazy.
نكته 11 استفاده كردن از gimme به جاي give me
give me a cup of tea يعني gimme a cuppa




كلمات جديد ي كه در زبان انگليسي آمريكايي بوجود آمده اند

shero اين كلمه به معناي قهرمان البته از نوع مونث مي باشد همان طور كه مي دانيد درانگليسي استاندارد معادل اين واژه heroine است
that girl just saved my life !she is my shero!

zidane شايد تعجب كنين كه اين كلمه چطور مي تونه معني داشته باشه اين كه اسم يك بازيكن فوتبال .اگه يادتون بياد تو بازي فرانسه با ايتاليا اگه اشتباه نكنم
زيدان با كله به سينه ي بازيكن حريف زد حالا به هر دليلي ! از اون روز به بعد معني اين واژه همين شد يعني با كله تو سينه ي يكي زدن در يك لحظه ي حياتي
zidane means to headbutt someone in the chest during a crucial moment
player1: gimme the ball? player2: no player1: don't make me go zidane on you

jackass of all trades حتما تا حالا كلمه ي jack of all trades را شنيده بودين يعني «آدم همه فن و حريف» و كلمه ي اول درست متضاد همينه يعني
آدمي كه تو هيچ كاري بدرد بخور نيست و همش خرابكاري مي كنه
Stefan is a dork give him anything to do and he'll screw it up.jackass of all trades
ستفان يه آدم احمقه هر كاري رو كه ازش بخواهي اجام بده خرابكاري مي كنه.آدم هميشه خرابكار!!!

pepsi تا حالا فكر كرده بودين كه اين كلمه از كجا اومده اين كلمه مخفف 5 كلمه مي باشد pay each penny for saving israel بي ربط بود!!

sav اين كلمه فرم كوتاه شده ي savage مي باشد به معناي وحشي ،ظالم

wdym مخفف what do you mean? مي باشدو يا whatever do you mean?
TOM:yeah isn't that awesome JACK:wait wdym? TOM:you should have been listening

معني واژه ي fi چيست؟ fi يك حرف است كه از آن در زبان عاميانه به جاي to استفاده مي شود
i want to see you tonight به جاي me wann fi see you tonight
listen to the man به جاي listen fi da man
معني ديگر اين واژه «پنج»مي باشديعني شكل نوشتاري عدد 5 مي باشد
what's his phone number?fo-fo-fi-fo-fo-fi-fi(4-4-5-4-4-5-5)

معني واژه ي nah چيست؟ همان no است و اغلب با man همراه است.(البته بيشتر اراذل اوباش از اين كلمه استفاده مي كنند)
do you wanna go to the movie? nah man
اين كلمه همچنين به جاي know نيز استفاده مي شود.
i don nah

البته تعداد اين جور كلمه ها خيلي زياد تر از اينهاست ولي من به همين ها بسنده ميكنم.


لطفا نظر بدين و اگر اشكالي هم مي بينين تصحيح كنين كه بقيه گمراه نشن me nah wanna mislead sb

ps
من اين مطلب رو تو ورد خيلي زيبا نوشته بودم ولي وقتي پيست كردم اين جوري خراب شد ببخشيد !!!

Hi dear
Yeah, actually when sth is interesting and great they use it. So when you wanna say great you can use:46:cool, For example: - I
bought Prado last night. - Really?! (That's) cool

As you see english-persian dictionaries are not reliable, so never trust them.:46:

About holiloya, I've no idea, sorry

The writer is a British SPY (!) in Iran called Shapur Ardeshir Jey (Reporter) ... Anyway, it's really excellent I think


Let's take a look at some of its expressions:

War is not exactly a picnic
در جنگ حلوا خيرات نمي كنند.

Don't you dare tell him
مبادا به او بگويي

Shame on you
تف به رويت !

Please don't stand on ceremony
لطفاً تعارف نكنيد

What is all this tomfoolery?
اين ديگر چه بازي است در آورده اي؟

Rumor has it that ...l
در افواه شايع است كه ...

For Pete's sake
بالا غيرتاً !

‏Touch wood
ماشاالله بگوييد

Good old days
يادش به خير



It's 3000 tomans

that brings our frinds up from the under world
sad as the last which reddens over one
