说话很快,喋喋不休 Talk nineteen to the dozen

今日短语

Talk nineteen to the dozen 说话很快,喋喋不休

Woman shouting

今日短语

A dozen 一打,是十二的意思。如果某人“talks nineteen to the dozen 从十九说到十二”,这个表达的实际意思是说话语速很快。就好比在说十二个词的时间内说了十九个词,让听的人不知所云。

例句

Sorry, when I’m nervous I talk nineteen to the dozen.

I can’t understand my lecturer at all. He talks nineteen to the dozen. Someone should tell him to slow down.

It was a terrible first date. I talked nineteen to the dozen about my ex-girlfriend.

请注意

另一个和说话相关的表达是 get a word in edgeways,意思是“插不进话,插不进嘴”。

例句

She’s such a chatterbox that once she starts it can be difficult to get a word in edgeways.

There were so many people asking questions after the lecture it was difficult to get a word in edgeways.
