  Words and Their Stories: Fireworks
单词故事:烟火

Now the VOA Special English program WORDS AND THEIR STORIES. I m Rich Kleinfeldt. Today we tell about the word fireworks.
现在是VOA特别英语节目《单词故事》。我是Rich Kleinfeldt。今天我们讲述单词firework。

The expression fireworks gets its meaning from the fireworks that people shoot into the sky when they are celebrating a great event. Rockets explode to fill the dark, night sky with bright reds and blues, with yellows and greens and whites.
词语firework意思来自于人们在庆祝重大事件时放入天空的烟火。火箭(?为什么用该词)爆炸进入深色夜空,夜空充满明亮的红色、蓝色,充满黄色、绿色、白色。

The expression also means a great show of noisy anger, or something exciting. For example, a defense lawyer in a court trial may become very emotional in arguing with the government lawyer about evidence affecting the accused. The judge finally stops the loud argument and calls the two lawyers forward. He tells them, I want no more of these fireworks in my courtroom.
该词语也含有“激烈争吵”的意思,或者一些兴奋的东西。例如,在法庭审判席上,辩护律师在与政府律师辩论的过程中,可能会因为影响被告的证据而变得非常情绪化。最终,法官会终止辩论,然后把两名律师叫到跟前,告诉他们,“我不希望我的法庭上再有类似激烈争吵”。

Another kind of fireworks can be any event or activity that is especially exciting. One such event is falling in love. If anything can produce fireworks, it is a sweetheart s kiss or the touch of a lover s hand. Often movie or television cartoons show fireworks to represent the excitement of a kiss.
firework的另一层意思是特别令人兴奋的事件或活动。一个例子就是恋爱,如果说有什么东西能产生火花,那一定是爱人的吻或者爱人的牵手,常常电影或电视动画片里用烟火去代表吻的兴奋。

People use the expression fireworks throughout the year. But if you live in the United States and want to see real fireworks, the best time of the year is about now. The Fourth of July is Independence Day in the United States. Americans traditionally celebrate their nation s freedom with giant public parties and fireworks at night.
人们全年都在使用烟火。但是如果你住在美国,想去看真正的烟火,最好的时间就是现在。7月4日是美国的独立日,(在这一天),美国人会用盛大的聚会和夜晚的烟火表演来庆祝他们的国家自由日。

In Washington, for example, large crowds gather near the Washington Monument to listen to music and watch a huge fireworks show. In other cities and smaller towns, local people listen to band concerts and watch fireworks explode in a dark sky.
例如,在华盛顿,大群人会聚集在华盛顿纪念碑前,去听音乐和观看盛大的烟火表演。在其它的城市和小镇,当地的人们会听乐队演奏和观看烟火表演。

Many other countries around the world also enjoy the tradition of exploding fireworks on special days. In Australia, the city of Sydney begins each new year with a fireworks show at midnight. China is the birthplace of fireworks. Large fireworks shows were held often during earlier times in China. Now, people use small fireworks to help celebrate weddings and birthdays.
世界上许多其它国家也喜欢在特殊的日子放烟火。在澳大利亚,新年的之夜悉尼会举行烟火表演。中国是烟火的诞生地,中国很早以前就常常举行焰火表演。现在,人们用小的烟火去帮助庆祝婚礼和生日。

France also has a great fireworks tradition. A large fireworks show always takes place on Bastille day which celebrates the beginning of the French Revolution. The French city of Cannes holds an international fireworks competition each year in July and August.
法国也有放烟火的传统。在庆祝法国革命开始的巴士底日,也会有盛大的烟火表演。法国城市戛纳每年七八月份会举行国际烟火比赛。

在印度,人们使用烟火已经超过五百年了。在每年秋天排灯节的宗教庆祝上,会有盛大的烟火表演。

Fireworks shows are popular around the world. But if I do not end this program right now, there will be fireworks from my producer.
烟火表演在全世界都很流行。但如果我不立刻结束这个节目 ,我们的制片人将会有愤怒的言语啦。
