在上一篇有提過potty是廁所、馬桶的意思

那說一個人有potty mouth又是什麼意思呢?

這並不是說他有口臭

而是指此人「嘴很髒」,滿口髒話

它也可以加ed變成形容詞potty-mouthed「滿口髒話的」

我們來造些句:

With a potty mouth like that, it’s no wonder she can’t hold on to a job.
(她那麼愛講髒話,難怪她的工作都做不久。)

Rick really has a potty mouth. He can’t seem to begin a sentence without swearing.
(瑞克真的很愛講髒話。他好像每句話都要用髒話開頭。)

Mrs. Stevenson is an ill-tempered, potty-mouthed old lady.
(史蒂文生太太是個脾氣壞又愛罵髒話的老太太。)
