Reading – An Australian legend
阅读练习-澳大利亚的一个传说

In lesson 19, Leo tells Mona a traditional story or legend. Read the story below. Look up the meaning and pronunciation of any new words in your dictionary.
在第十九课里,利奥给蒙纳讲述了一个传说。下面也请您阅读一个澳大利亚的传说,请从字典里查找新的生词的意义和发音。
An Australian legend is that British police sent William Buckley to Australia as a convict in
the early 1800s. He escaped and lived in the Australian bush with the Aboriginal people for
32 years. In 1835, he left the bush and told the police his story. After the Australian people
heard it, they invented new words to include in their language. They believed it would be
very difficult to survive in the Australian bush. ‘Buckley’s’, ‘Buckley’s chance’ and
Buckley’s and none’, are examples of Australian slang that mean ‘next to no chance’.
这个澳大利亚的传说是有关一八零零年代早期被流放到澳大利亚的一名英国罪犯威廉·巴克利的故事。巴克利当时被英国警方押解到澳大利亚后,他设法脱逃拘留并且在山林里和土著民生活了三十二年。巴克利最终于一八三五年离开山林回到了尘世,他把他的故事告诉了警方。巴克利的故事后来流传到了民间,成了一个经典传说。后人根据巴克利的传说创造了新的词汇,诸如‘Buckley’s’, ‘Buckley’s chance’ and ‘Buckley’s and none’,由于一般人认为在澳大利亚山林生存非常艰难,因此在澳洲俚语里这些是微乎其微,几乎没有希望的代名词。
