之前我们写过rain cats and dogs表示“倾盆大雨”,cats and dogs并不仅仅表示猫和狗,今天要写的apples and oranges也是如此,并非苹果和橘子这么简单。 apples and oranges是一个常用习语,表示“两者天差地别,无法比较;不能混为一谈”,它在美式英语中更为常见。 The idiom, comparing apples and oranges, refers to the apparent differences between items which are popularly thought to be incomparable or incommensurable, such as apples and oranges. 例如: You can't compare them. They are apples and oranges. 你无法比较它们,它们完全不能混为一谈。 你知道这个用法吗?
