春天来了,夏天还会远吗?身上的肉藏不住了啦说到肉呀肥呀胖呀什么的,fat立马就跳了出来。但是你知道吗,fat是个非常直接的说法,你自嘲自己肥I'm fat没人拦着你,但你如果直接说对方fat,可是会让对方瞬间不爽哦。那该怎么委婉地说别人胖捏?


She is a little overweight.=她比以前胖了一点点。

委婉指数2obese 是医生最爱用的肥胖专用词,你胖不要紧、但影响到健康就是你的不对了。

委婉指数3chubby 走的是口语化且可爱的路线,比如小盆友有点婴儿肥、某个姑娘的苹果肌让人很想捏一把

a chubby six-year-old=胖乎乎的6岁小孩

a girl with round chubby cheeks=那个有着圆圆的苹果肌的姑娘


a plump, motherly woman=胖胖的、慈祥的女人


For big men like him, air travel can be uncomfortable.=对于像他一样高大壮的人来说,坐飞机真是一种折磨。


今天的无奖竞猜又来了,你知道fat cat是什么意思吗?
