「出軌」有兩種意思

一種是真正的火車出軌

一種是指情侶間的背叛

火車出軌用derail [dɪˋrel]這個字

它的名詞是derailment

比如:

A train derailed in India and killed at least 150 people.
(有輛火車在印度出軌,至少150人死亡。)

The train derailment was caused by faulty brake system.
(這次的火車出軌事件是煞車系統故障引起。)

但是情侶間的背叛則要用cheat on someone這個片語

比如:

Mike’s girlfriend is cheating on him with her ex.
(麥克的女友正背著他和前任男友交往。)

Laura’s husband cheated on her with his secretary.
(蘿拉的丈夫和他的秘書出軌。)
