Put someone on the map “把人搬到地图上”是什么意思?

QQ截图20171116113325.png

内容简介

我们通常用地图找地方、看方向,但如果要是“put someone on the map 把一个人放在地图里”了,这又是什么意思呢?看视频,学习这个实用的地道表达。

大家好!欢迎收听 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Neil
And hello, I'm Neil.

Feifei
Neil, I wonder if you could help me. I'm trying to find something on this map.

Neil
Ah yes, map reading – I'm good at that. What are you trying to find?

Feifei
是这样的:我昨晚去听了一场演唱会,那位新歌手特别棒!

Neil
Thanks for inviting me! Anyway, what's that got to with a map?

Feifei
你别急,我还没说完。听完演唱会后,大家都说他唱得太好了,这一场成功的演出可以“put him on the map”。But… I just can't find him on here.

Neil
Put the map away Feifei – you won't find him there. When we say someone will be 'put on the map' it means they will become famous or become more prominent – but not on a map!

Feifei
哦,原来是这个意思。表达“put someone/something on the map 把某人或某物放在地图上”的实际意思是“使这个人或地方出名”。想象如果一个人或地方在地图上都被标注出来了,那应该是广为人知的了。

Neil
Yes, something as well as someone can be put on the map – or in other words, become famous, popular or well-known.

Feifei
Let's hear some examples, shall we?

Examples
Her first exhibition at the Tate gallery has put her on the map as a serious modern artist. .

This great tasting food has really put this new restaurant on the map.

Hosting the Olympics has put this city on the map as a great place to come for a holiday.

Feifei
“To put someone/something on the map”的意思就是变得出名,受欢迎。I suppose it suggests that becoming famous means you are now important enough for your name to be seen or heard by everyone.

Neil
That's right. In the old days when a place was too small and unimportant it wasn't shown on a map – but when it became more important it was 'put on the map'.

Feifei
是的,在过去,一个小地方或人们认为不重要的地方在地图上都没有标注;只有当一个地方壮大起来,有了影响力后才会被列在地图上。But Neil, let me look at that map again…

Neil
OK.

Feifei
Look! That singer I saw really is on the map – right there.

Neil
Really? What was he called?

Feifei
'MAN-CHESTER'

Neil
‘MAN – CHESTER’? Manchester. Of course!

Feifei
Bye.

Neil
Goodbye.
