VOA盛行美语 Unit 90: BUY STH / BE SOLD ON STH
明天Larry和Li Hua一同听了无关环境维护的讲座。Li Hua会学到两个罕用语：to buy something和to be sold on something。
(college hallway noise)
LH: 哎，Larry, 听了这个讲座，我感觉"寰球变暖成绩"真挺让人担忧的。
LL: I don"t know, Li Hua... I just don"t buy the theory that global warming is caused by humans. There is a lot we just don"t know.
LH: 你说你不买什么？ 哎，没人想卖你货色啊？
LL: I said that I don"t buy that theory. That mean"s I don"t accept it as completely true.
LH: 噢，原来I don"t buy the theory就是"我不承受这种说法"。哎，那不就是咱们中文里说的"我不买这一套"吗？得了得了，我没工夫跟你争执。哎，你据说了吗 - 咱们往年的学费要涨百分之10呢！学校说他们方案要翻修图书馆。
LL: What? That"s ridiculous. I don"t buy that excuse. They raised tuition last year by 5% to expand the stadium.
LH: 就是嘛，去年学校为了扩建体育馆曾经把学费添加了百分之5了。Larry, 那你是不是可以再用I don"t buy it 给我举一个和学校没无关系的例子呢？
LL: OK. You know my friend Angela? She"s often late for class, and she always has different excuses. So finally one day, Professor Johnson said to her, "I don"t buy your excuses. I think you are just not self-disciplined enough!"
LH: So Larry, 你打定主见去南京哪一所学校留学了吗？
LL: I don"t know. I guess I"m still not sold on that school.
LH: Sold? 那不是"卖货色"的"卖"吗？哎哟，"卖货色"和"留学"这有什么关系呀？
LL: No, silly! I said that I am not sold on that school. "To be sold on something" means to be convinced that it"s worthwhile, or it"s the best choice.
LH: 噢，我明确了。To be sold on something意思就是"你以为这件事值得，是个好抉择"。这个说法挺无意思的，你能不能再给我举了例子？
LL: Well, remember when you were looking for a new apartment? At first you weren"t sold on that place, but when you heard that the rent was only $600 a month, you were sold!
LH: 对呀，我在找房子的时分，一开端还不太称心我如今住的那个中央，起初据说房租一个月才六百美元，马上我就动心了。哎，Larry, to be sold on something是不是只能用在和"钱"无关的事件上呢?
LL: Not necessarily. For instance, suppose you can"t decide if you want to vote for someone who is running for office, you could say "I"m not sold on that candidate yet".
LH: 噢，选举的时分，要是我还不能一定是不是要投某个候选人的票，我也能够说，I"m not sold on that candidate yet.
LL: That"s right. We were just talking about that Professor Johnson didn"t buy Angela"s excuses, we can also say he wasn"t sold on her excuses.
LH: 对，Professor Johnson不置信Angela老是早退的借口，咱们也能够说He wasn"t sold on her excuses, 也就是说，to be sold on something也有"置信"的意思。
LL: Hey, Li Hua, I guess I should have told you that was just an example -- Professor Johnson didn"t really say it to Angela.
LL: I know - You were totally sold on it - You actually bought it!
明天李华从Larry那儿学到两个罕用语，一个是to buy something, 示意"置信某件事"。另一个是to be sold on something, 意思是"以为某件事值得、是真的"。
