Bang on about something 喋喋不休
你会用哪些英语短语来形容一个人 “喋喋不休”？你身边有这样说起话来就没完没了的朋友吗？在这期 “地道英语” 节目中，我们就来学习一个英国人常用的有趣表达方式，形容人 “喋喋不休”。
大家好！欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我是冯菲菲。
…and me, Roy.
在本期节目中，我们要教给大家的这个地道英语表达可以用来描述某人无休止地谈论某件事，唠唠叨叨，说个没完。Roy， 你今天早上就没完没了地絮叨那个乐队来着。What were you banging on about?
What do you mean ‘banging on’? I wasn’t hitting anything this morning with a pan! I was just talking about music with Neil.
Exactly! You were talking about it so much, and I was trying to work. “Banging on about something” 的字面意思是 “敲打某物”，但实际所表达的意思是某人没完没了地唠叨一件事情，让人感到厌烦。
Ah, the way in which you kept talking about that film ‘Unicorns Eat Bananas in the Stars’! You banged on about it so much last week that people left the room.
That film is amazing.
Feifei, you kept giving people spoilers, and nobody went to see the film in the end because you kept banging on about everything that happened.
Well, that’s your opinion, Roy. Anyway, let’s listen to these examples.
My friend keeps banging on about where he’s going to go when he buys his new car. It’s really frustrating.
That person on the bus was really annoying. She kept banging on about how the prices had gone up.
Will you please stop banging on about my project!? If you think you could do a better job, you can do my work for me.
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。这期节目里我们教给大家的地道表达是 “bang on about something”。我们通常用 “bang on about something” 来形容某人 “喋喋不休，说个不停”，以至于让他人感到非常厌烦。
Sorry, Feifei. I didn’t mean to say you were banging on about that film. Everyone did love your enthusiasm about it.
I’m sorry too, Roy. I just wanted to know more about the band you were talking about, so I found it annoying that I didn’t understand.
Well, next I’ll tell you more about it.
That’s OK. I think I’ve heard enough about your taste in music for one lifetime, but thanks anyway.
