pow wow [paʊ waʊ] 看起來不像英文

那是因為它源自於北美洲原住民的語言

也可以寫成一個字 powwow,可以當動詞或名詞

pow wow 原本是原住民的社交活動

通常有唱歌、跳舞等

不過現在在日常生活中都是指「討論;商議」的意思


我們來造些句:

We need to have a pow wow after lunch.
(我們需要在午餐後討論一下。)

They are pow-wowing about Janet’s birthday celebration.
(他們正在討論珍娜的生日慶祝活動。)

We will have a family pow wow about this.
(我們全家將會針對這件事進行討論。)
