lap 在這裡可不是指坐下時的大腿表面 (sit on someone’s lap)

它當作動詞用,是「用舌頭舔」的意思

像小貓小狗舔牛奶或水的動作

lap up 這個片語字面上是「把…舔起來」

實際上就是毫不質疑地接受、熱情地接受的意思

有點類似中文說的「照單全收」

有時也會加一些字形成 lap it all up 來加強語氣


我們來造些句:

She lapped up all his fancy lies.
(她對他那些花言巧語照單全收。)

People lapped up the exaggerated effects of the skin-care product.
(人們聽信這個護膚產品誇大的效果。)
