要說一個人是鄉巴佬、沒見過世面

在英文裡的說法是 hillbilly [ˋhɪl͵bɪli]

hill 本身的意思是「山丘」

所以 hillbilly 本來是指住在美國阿帕拉契和歐沙克山區(美國南部)的窮人

這個詞經過流行文化的洗禮,現在已變成「鄉巴佬」的代稱

不過要注意這個詞有貶低別人的意味

所以還是少用為妙哦


我們來造些句:

Jack got into a fight with a hillbilly at the bar.
(傑克在酒吧和一個鄉巴佬打架。)

She resents being called a “hillbilly.”
(她痛恨別人叫她鄉巴佬。)

They are from a hillbilly family, but the children all worked hard to get rid of their accent.
(他們出身鄉下,但孩子們都努力想擺脫掉鄉下口音。)
