[BT英语0183] anvil

anvil


砧,砧座,这个单词我是这样记得,live是生活的意思,把生活把颠倒了,就是evil邪恶的意思,如果再把邪恶的e换成an,那就是anvil。这就是最邪恶的生活了,整天被人打。

a heavy block of iron on which heated piece of metal are shaped by hammering.

和中国一样,外国人也认为把人放在砧座上打一顿是对人的锤炼和磨练。(实际上我认为值得商量,没意义的吃苦仅仅是吃苦……比如军训…)

You can refer to a difficult experience that changes someone or leads to something good as a particular type of anvil.

His independence had been forged on the anvil of a harsh environment.他的独立性是在艰苦的环境中锤炼出来的。
