我們知道 plug 是電器的插頭

把插頭拔掉電器就不能運作

所以 pull the plug on something 就是中止某件事

不再繼續進行的意思

很常用在計畫等事情上的片語

後面的介系詞要用 on

再接名詞或動名詞


我們來造些句:

He pulled the plug on the project because we just lost a big client.
(因為我們剛失去一個大客戶,他把這個計劃喊停。)

The hospital decided to pull the plug on hiring new nurses.
(醫院決定停止僱用新的護士。)

She is going to pull the plug on the kitchen renovations.
(她打算先暫停廚房的更新工程。)
