#137 Authentic ways of using ‘swipe’谈谈“刷”

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

如果你常常看中文的社交媒体,你可能会看到这个字:刷。在词典里,刷是一个动作,比如刷地板,刷油漆,等等。但是,现在的“刷”有了更多的意思,而且这些跟刷有关的词语都非常有意思。今天,我们就来谈一谈“刷”。

我们去买东西的时候,可以用现金支付,也可以用信用卡支付。用信用卡的时候,我们可以说:“刷卡。”比如,服务员会问你:“现金还是刷卡?”你可以说:“我刷卡,谢谢。”

现在,很多人喜欢玩手机,有时候,人们可以玩好几个小时的手机。除了说玩手机,我们也可以说“刷手机”,因为我们用手指在手机的屏幕上刷。我们可以说:“我今天本来想早点睡觉,但是睡前刷了一下手机,一刷就是两个小时,等我放下手机的时候,已经是半夜一点了。”除了说刷手机,我们也可以刷一种社交媒体,比如,“刷Instagram”,“刷微博”,“刷微信”,等等。

有时候,人们会在社交媒体上发布同样的东西。这种时候,我们在手机屏幕或者电脑屏幕看到也是同样的东西。这叫“刷屏”。比如,我们可以说:“这个歌手要开演唱会了,他的粉丝们在社交媒体上刷屏,为他加油。”

现在,很多手机已经可以人脸识别,我们可以说这是“刷脸”。比如,我们可以说:“这个大学做了人脸识别,学生和老师们只要刷脸就可以进校园了。”有时候,刷脸也可以是一个人很有名,所以他去哪儿都很容易,比如:“她是一个名人,刷脸就可以去很多饭店吃饭。”

你可以用今天学的词写一个句子吗?欢迎给我们留言分享哦!

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

If you often look at Chinese social media, you may see this character: 刷 (shuā). In the dictionary, 刷 is an action, such as brushing the floor, painting, and so on. However, now “刷” has more meanings, and these words related to swiping are very interesting. Today, we’re going to talk about “刷” (shuā).

When we buy things, we can pay with cash or use a credit card. When using a credit card, we can say: “刷卡” (shuā kǎ). For example, the waiter may ask you, “Cash or card?” You can say, “I’ll swipe my card, thank you.”

Now, many people like to play with their phones, and sometimes people can play on their phones for several hours. Apart from saying “play with the phone,” we can also say “刷手机” (shuā shǒujī) because we use our fingers to swipe on the phone’s screen. We can say, “I originally wanted to go to bed early today, but before going to sleep, I swiped my phone, and as soon as I swiped, two hours passed. When I put down my phone, it was already 1 AM.” Besides saying “swipe the phone,” we can also swipe a social media platform like “swipe Instagram,” “swipe Weibo,” “swipe WeChat,” and so on.

Sometimes, people will post the same things on social media. At such times, what we see on the phone or computer screen is also the same thing. This is called “刷屏” (shuā píng). For example, we can say, “This singer is going to have a concert, and his fans are sending the same message on social media to cheer for him.”

Nowadays, many phones can do facial recognition, and we can say this is “刷脸” (shuā liǎn). For example, we can say, “This university has implemented facial recognition, so students and teachers can enter the campus just by swiping their faces.” Sometimes, swiping the face can also refer to someone being famous, so they can easily go to many restaurants. For example, “She is a celebrity; she can swipe her face and go to many restaurants.”

Can you write a sentence using the words you learned today? Feel free to leave us a comment to share!
