Vanish(消失不见、失去影踪; 消亡、灭绝)

1、If someone or something vanishes, they disappear suddenly or in a way that cannot be explained.(disappear Become available, 感官上体会不到 )

2If something such as a species of animal or a tradition vanishes, it stop existing.(extinct Become unknown,原本有的东西烟消云散,成为了历史 )

Most of what’s visible to the dead could also been seen by the living if they’d only take the time to look. (介词+宾语从句做主语以及搭配虚拟语气的用法)

E.G.1:Bodies produce very little DHA on their own, so the majority of what’s needed should come from foods and supplements.

E.G.2:Most of what’s effective to corporations could also be applied to local authorities if they’d be willing to swallow their pride/get off their high horse and consult with corporate elite group.

大多数对于公司有效的方法都可以被当地政府部门所采用,如果他们愿意放下身段,去请教企业的精英管理层的话。

Visible(看得见的;能吸引人们注意力的)

1、Able to be seen.

2、able or likely to attract public attention and be noticed.

PlatinumA valuable metal that is silver in color, does not react easily with other elements, and is used in jewelry and in industry. (白金、铂金)

Brand-new:Completely new, especially not yet used. (全新的、崭新的)

Had I looked closer:(If I only looked closer)——>> Inversion(倒装句)

虚拟语气中,我们可以用以下三种,可以用来来替换“If”,用以表达一种礼貌的强调:

E.G. If I had been there(Had I been there), this problem wouldn’t have happened.

If I had been older(Had I been old),I would have seen more.

欧文点评:Here Mary Alice admits that she didn’t pay attention before. Or in other words, she’s not attentive to Gabrielle’s life and problems. She regrets that in pursuit of her life and happiness, she did not spend enough time to get a closer look at Gaby’s.

Infuse sth with sth(为……注入活力、动力、激情、能力等正面因素)

E.G. (Rex said to Bree in S01E14:)

Bree, you are not gonna regret taking this journey with me. This is gonna infuse our marriage with more passion than you can imagine.

Be about to do sthBe going to do sth, this expression allows us to express an imminent action, or a very near future. (马上或即将做某事)
