分類: 英文字彙片語

cloak 是「斗篷」

dagger 是「匕首」,一種短劍

當我們想到這兩樣東西時,會聯想到什麼呢?

是不是會聯想到古代的吸血鬼或什麼神秘的人物?

所謂 cloak-and-dagger 就是指懸疑刺激的,或是隱秘、神秘的,通常是間諜故事那種

注意中間要用兩槓連成一個字,當形容詞


我們來造些句:

The writer is famous for her cloak-and-dagger space stories.
(這名作家以她懸疑刺激的太空故事聞名。)

The message was delivered in a cloak-and-dagger fashion.
(那個訊息以很隱秘的方式傳送。)

He is in charge of the cloak-and-dagger operations of the company.
(他主管公司裡那些暗中發生的勾當。)
