看绝望的主妇学高频短语:Out of the question

Out of the question:to be an event that cannot possibly happen:having no chance; not allowed or permitted. (没得商量、免谈,完全不可能

 

中文译义:“Out of the question”这个短语通常用来表示对某人坚决的回绝,或者直言不讳评论某件事情不可能发生。在这里,值得一提的是:与之相对应的表达“out of question”虽然与本短语仅相差一个定冠词“the”,但两个短语的意义却是完全相对。(out of question是指:毋庸置疑、没有问题)
