garbage(ガーベッジ)

文字どおり「ゴミ」なのですが、「くだらないこと」を意味することもあります。例えば “all sorts of garbage” は、「あらゆる種類のくだらないこと」という意味なのですが、長くて語呂もいいので、文章の調子を整える意味でも使われます。

 

単に “He talked about dumb things.”(彼はくだらないことを話した)だと少々淋し いので、“He said this and that, and all sorts of garbage.” 「彼はあれやこれやと、ホントくだらないこ とばかり言っていた」みたいに使います。

 

“like garbage” (ゴミのように)なども覚えておくと便 利でしょう。 “He smells like garbage.” (彼はゴミの ような臭いがする)とか、“He looked like garbage.” (彼はゴミみたいなひどい格好だった)など、応用は無 限です(^^;
