Ucz się angielskiego z… Jojo Moyes (Odcinek 33 “Me Before You”)


Tak dawno nie było wpisu słownikowego, że pewnie zapomnieliście, że było kiedyś coś takiego na blogu. Ale dziś słownik wraca, bo nauczyłam kilku nowych słów w trakcie lektury “Me Before You” Jojo Moyes. Wszystkie wymienione cytato-przykłady pochodzą z tejże właśnie powieści, a polskie tłumaczenie słów znalazłam na diki.pl i pl. O książce poczytacie TUTAJ.


bollard – słupek, pachołek ‘Did you know, she once drove backwards into a bollard and swore it was the bollard’s fault … ‘

chorister – chórzysta, śpiewak Forty-eight choristers (I counted) sang something in Latin. Rupert sweated into his penguin suit and raised

crackling – skwarek, spieczona skórka (to crakle – trzaskać, skwierczeć) We ordered three buns with pork, crackling and apple sauce, and sheltered under the striped awning while we ate them.

intermittently – nieregularnie, spordycznie Will was in the middle of the hospital bed, his body covered with a blue blanket, wired up to a drip and surrounded by various intermittently bleeping machines. His face was partially obscured by an oxygen mask and his eyes were closed.

magistrate – sędzia pokoju I had been a magistrate for almost eleven years now. I watched the whole of human life come through my court: the hopeless waifs who couldn’t get themselves together sufficiently even to make a court appointment on time; the repeat offenders; the angry, hard-faced young men and exhausted, debt-ridden mothers.

spiel – gadka I so wished he hadn’t asked. Patrick launched into his sales spiel, all about personal motivation and how a fit body made for a healthy mind.

to snarl – warczeć, prychać I sat there, as the bus’s tired old engine snarled and juddered beneath us, and had a sudden sense of time racing, of losing whole chunks of it in my small journeys backwards and forwards along the same stretch.

waif – zbłąkany, bezdomny I watched the whole of human life come through my court: the hopeless waifs who couldn’t get themselves together sufficiently even to make a court appointment on time; the repeat offenders; the angry, hard-faced young men and exhausted, debt-ridden mothers.
