看绝望的主妇学高频短语:For starters

For starters: Used to say that something is the first in a list of things; People say for starters to introduce the first thing or things in a series of things. As in “Why did you decide not to go to the concert?” “Well, for starters, the tickets were ridiculously expensive.”

中文释义:For starters,在美语口语中经常用到。它的意思相当于:to begin with,to start with,即:首先,以…开始。这个短语常用来:先列举一件事,暗示后面还有很多类似的事,这只是刚刚开始。单从字面来看,for starters容易让人误理解为:对于新手而言。但其实它并不具有该层含义,大家在使用中应当注意。例句:These prizes are just for starters. Other exciting offers are flooding in(这些奖只是个开始。其他激动人心的奖励还会接踵而至。)
