Flabbergasted
    2017-November-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

第二届足荣村方言电影节日前在广东湛江举行。在雷州半岛上生活了一辈子,83岁的农民赵玉和怎么也想不到,自己会成为一个电影节的“最佳女演员”。请看本报周五的报道:

On Oct. 28, 83-year-old Zhao Yuhe was flabbergasted to receive the best actress award at a film festival in Zhanjiang in South China’s Guangdong Province.

Standing wearily in the spotlight on stage, the octogenarian told an admiring audience that she was surprised she had won as she is a farmer, illiterate, and speaks not a word of Mandarin.

While her lack of language skills and education might have resulted in trouble finding jobs or communicating with her fellow countrymen, these characteristics did not pose issues at the Zurong Dialect Film Festival, one of China’s increasingly popular campaigns to preserve language diversity.

报道中的flabbergasted就是“惊呆的”,动词是flabbergast, 这个词由flabby (无力的)和aghast (吃惊的)组成。例如:

They were flabbergasted by the size of the difference.

差异的巨大令他们大吃一惊。
