showstopper 的意思很容易被猜錯

字面上看起來好像是 使表演中斷的人或東西

其實這樣講也沒錯

只是它指的不是搗亂的人或東西

而是指整場表演中最精彩的部份, 或是表現最棈彩的一個人

就是因為太精彩了, 所以讓觀眾讚嘆和鼓掌不斷, 而使得整個表演暫時中斷了

要等大家安靜下來才能繼續進行

因此才叫它 showstopper

現在它也被用來指任何吸引人或受歡迎的事物

兩個字分開寫成 show stopper 也可以

來造些句:

1. She is quite a showstopper.

2. His performance was a real showstopper.

3. She has a showstopper of a smile.

4. The yellow flowers against the black background are a showstopper.
