看绝望的主妇学高频短语: Chip in

Chip in: to contribute a small amount of money to a fund that will be used to buy something; to contribute money toward a gift for someone; to give some money, esp. when several people are giving money to pay for something together: They each chipped in $50 to take their parents out to dinner.

中文释义:chip作为名词是多义词,但在这里我们只需要了解它有赌注或谈判用的筹码或一笔钱就可以了。chip in作为动词短语在此基础之上,可以理解为contribute, donate日常口语化的另一种说法,意为“捐助,筹钱,凑份子”。另外chip in表示收集的东西越聚越多,着重强调逐渐收集的过程及选择的细微性、原则性和选择后安排的有序性,有时也强调其目的性。例句:If everyone chips in, we’ll be able to buy her a really nice gift.(如果大家都凑钱,我们就能给她买件很好的礼物。)
