中式英语童子鸡:没有性生活的鸡


童子鸡正确的翻译是Spring chicken,在金山词霸里也有这个词组。虽然中式英语翻译成“没有性生活的鸡”比较怪异,但是跟这个“春”(spring-春天)比较起来,多少殊途同归呢。

chinglish-Chicken without sexual life
童子鸡:Chicken without sexual life-没有性生活的鸡

chinglish-Red burned lion head

红烧狮子头:Red burned lion head-烧红了的狮子头

红烧狮子头建议翻译法:Stewed Pork Ball in Brown Sauce。
