尼尔:大家好,欢迎收听地道英语节目,我是尼尔。

莉:我是莉,大家好。

Neil: In this programme, we're talking about clothes.

尼尔:本期节目中我们要来谈谈衣服。

Li: Clothes! Oh My favourite subject in the whole world! I know all the designers, I try different styles… I love clothes! Let's talk about MY clothes.

莉:衣服!这是全世界我最喜欢的话题!我了解所有时装设计师,我会尝试不同的风格……我喜欢衣服!我们来谈谈我的衣服吧。

Neil: Well… actually I thought we should talk about our smalls.

尼尔:嗯……实际上我觉得我们应该来谈谈内衣。

Li: Smalls?! Do you think my clothes are too small for me? Are you calling me fat?

莉:小?你觉得我穿的衣服太小了?你是说我胖吗?

Neil: No, Li. You look fine. 'Smalls' is a word we use for underwear.

尼尔:不是,莉。你身材不错。Smalls指的是内衣。

Li: Smalls. So you are talking about women's knickers and men's underpants, socks, women's bras…

莉:内衣。所以我们要谈女性内裤、男性内裤、袜子还有女性内衣……

Neil: Yes. And we can refer to our underwear as 'smalls' or 'undies'.

尼尔:对。内衣可以用smalls和undies来表达。

Li: Undies. That's easy to remember because it refers to what we wear under our clothes — undies.

莉:内衣。这很容易记,指我们在衣服里面穿的,所以就是内衣。

Neil: Two easy words to remember when you talk about underwear. And remember they are always plural.

尼尔:你要记住这两个表达“内衣”的简单词汇。同时要记住,这两个词都是复数形式。

Li: I see. So you don't say 'one small' or one 'undy'.

莉:我明白了。所以不能说one small或者one undy。

Neil: No, you don't. Smalls and undies are always used in the plural and they mean underwear. Now let's hear some examples of how these words are used.

尼尔:对,不能这么说。这两个词在表示“内衣”这个意思时要用复数形式。现在我们来听些例句,看看这两个词如何应用。
