"Speak under her breath" nghĩa là gì?

'Speak under one's breath' nghĩa là nói khẽ, nói thì thầm, nói thì thào (spoken in such a soft, quiet voice that others cannot hear it distinctly).

Ví dụ
Judy muttered (nói khẽ, nói thầm; lẩm bẩm, cằn nhằn) an expletive (lời chêm vào, lời nói tục tĩu) under her breath, then smiled.

Gadsby’s delivery, throughout the Netflix special, is both whimsical (không thực tế, giàu tưởng tượng; kỳ dị) and droll (khôi hài, buồn cười; trò hề). She has a habit of delivering her punchlines (phần cuối của chuyện cười) almost under her breath, with an impish (tinh quái, tinh ma quỷ quái) grin (cười toe toét, cười nhe răng).

Before Trump signed his executive order, there were calls in the UK for the prime minister, Theresa May, to cancel his forthcoming visit until the policy was rescinded (hủy bỏ, bãi bỏ). “Until the children are reunited,” Clinton mutters under her breath. Her expression (nét mặt) suggests she regrets the interjection as soon as I ask her to repeat it. “I’m not going to speak for your government,” she corrects herself hastily (vội vã).

“So what’s going to happen?” asked Walter Lemos, one of José’s uncles, at his home one afternoon. “Even the boy prefers to stay in America,” José responded. “He knows there’s more for him there.” “But there’s no love like a parent’s love,” Lemos said under his breath, shaking his head.

The man who was slammed to the ground by a Savannah waitress after he groped the young woman is in a relationship - and has two young daughters.

...Cherwinski and Erica Martin have been together for 11 years, and she was with him at the restaurant when he groped their server and was arrested.

Cherwinski is also now facing criminal charges after Holden responded to his grope (vuốt ve, mơn trớn) by grabbing him by the arm, pulling him towards her and then slamming him to the ground.

One of the girl's co-workers then called the Savannah Police Department who sent an officer to the restaurant. After reviewing the surveillance footage (video giám sát) taken inside the restaurant, police arrested him and handed him over to the Chatham County Sheriff's Office.

Lâu thật vậy sao?

Ever feel like your doctor (bác sĩ) is in a rush (vội vã) to get you out the door (tống ra cửa) when you come in for a visit? You’re not just imagining things. A new study finds physicians  (bác sĩ) give a patient (bệnh nhân) an average of just 11 seconds to describe (miêu tả) their issue (thể trạng) before cutting them off (ngắt lời).

Researchers from the University of Florida determined that for all the waiting we do after we arrive at a medical practitioner’s office, its the doctors who seem to have the least amount of patience (kiên nhẫn).

“Our results suggest that we are far from achieving patient-centered care,” says study co-author Naykky Singh Ospina in a release, adding that medicals specialists proved to be in the biggest hurry, compared to primary care (chăm sóc ban đầu) physicians.

...examine the flow of conversation between clinicians and patients, and more importantly, see how viable it was for the most important person in the room — the patient, of course — to lead the discussion. Her researchers secured videos of consultations that were filmed in clinics (phòng mạch, phòng khám) across the U.S. as training sessions for the physicians between 2008 and 2015.
