Trông ta có giống buồn ngủ không? Photo by Ray Hennessy

"Fox's sleep" = Giấc ngủ của cáo -> Khi ngủ cáo chỉ nhắm một bên mắt để luôn cảnh giác với mọi thứ xung quanh/ai đó vẫn luôn nhận thức hay cảnh giác mọi điều diễn ra xung quanh khi đang ngủ.

Ví dụ
My daddy is like a bodyguard (vệ sĩ) in the house, he always has a fox's sleep to prevent us from bad things.

What we have is fox's sleep. There's no getting comfortable with drug users. One guy came up and laid on the corner of my blanket.

Marshall shared that she knew some people find it “obnoxious” (ghê tởm, khó chịu) when “you only do things on your schedule,” but that ultimately, she was the one having to sacrifice (hy sinh), for example, Fox’s sleep, which impacts her own sleep.

"Be able to do (something) in (one's) sleep" = Nhắm mắt cũng làm được -> Làm điều gì đó rất dễ dàng, không tốn nhiều công sức, làm một cách vô tư vì quen làm việc đó nhiều lần rồi.

Ví dụ
But the good news doesn't stop there. Kourtney's HIIT workout requires no equipment and you can be able to do it in your sleep in the comfort of your own home.

"I rode 50 (kg) a couple of springs ago and I'm sure I am able to do it in my sleep again," he said. "A bit of training through the week and I'll get there.

I did that this year, but another girl broke it with me and she finished with like two more than me and I think I am able to do it in my sleep in my senior season.

"Sob oneself to sleep" = Khóc thổn thức mãi rồi ngủ thiếp đi.

Ví dụ
"Does he understand you?" he asks. "He doesn't understand me at all," I explain. That night, I climb under the covers and sob myself to sleep.

As much as you might want to shut down and sob yourself to sleep, how you handle the death is a pivotal part (phần nòng cốt) of how your child will grieve (gây đau buồn, làm đau lòng).

The assault only (cuộc tấn công, hành hung) stopped when her alleged assaulter (người bị cho là kẻ hành hung), Fernandez, go up to use the bathroom, leaving the girl to sob herself to sleep.

"Sleeping giant" = Gã khổng lồ đang ngủ/chưa tỉnh giấc -> Chỉ đất nước không có nhiều quyền lực hay sức ảnh hưởng nào nhưng lại là một đất nước sẽ rất có nhiều tiềm năng phát triển vì nhờ có diện tích rộng, dân số đông, nguồn tài nguyên dồi dào hoặc quân sự vững mạnh... Còn nghĩa thứ hai là đang đợi khi sức mạnh quyền lực của ai, đội, nhóm trổi dậy.

Ví dụ
It wasn’t until the second period, but the sleeping giant that was the United States U-17 hockey team awoke from their slumber (giấc ngủ) Sunday.

“It wasn’t a difficult decision to extend my stay here, I know the size of the club and I still see it as a sleeping giant, even though we are sitting at the top of the league.

This week's episode of the Inside Marketing podcast features Meabh Connellan, group strategy director of Dentsu Aegis, and Aidan Boylan, founder of Irish Collegiate Esports, discussing the sleeping giant that is Esports.

"Sleep through" = Ngủ xuyên suốt đêm mà không thức giấc lần nào/ngủ bất chấp mọi thứ xung quanh đang diễn ra như mặc kệ đồng hồ báo thức đang reo.

Ví dụ
Additionally, their ability to sleep through the night without waking improved by five , while their total sleep time increased by 13 percent.

This means that it doesn't matter when they're put down to bed, they will drift off (bắt đầu ngủ say, vừa chợp mắt) and sleep through the night—at least until they need to feed.

A 17-year-old is helping women sleep through the night with the help of a popular craze (sự say mê, sự loạn trí) known as ASMR. ASMR, which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is a phenomenon (hiện tượng) that quickly caught fire on social media. The audio-visuals of the trend reportedly cause people to experience a "tingling, static-like sensation on the skin."

Ơ hay, con gái nhà ai đây? Photo by Benjamin Combs

"Sleep over" = Ngủ nướng/ngủ quá nhiều -> Ngủ lang tại nhà ai/như khách ngủ lại tại nhà người khác/qua đêm và ngủ với ai trên giường người đó.

Ví dụ
"At the moment, they're all having a little sleep over at mum and dad's house so that's pretty nice. The wolf pack's in full force."

In fact, in a story we laugh about now, Linda's parents were concerned about letting her sleep over at my house the first time I invited her.

Brian really looked forward to sleepovers at his uncle’s house and sees my nephew as a big brother. The problem is, my brother remarried (tái hôn) and Brian is extremely allergic (dị ứng với) to her dog. He can’t spend any time at their home, so Brian saw much less of them.

"Sleep on (something)" = Tựa vào cái gì để ngủ -> Ngủ sau một đêm mới quyết định điều gì/trì hoãn trong việc quyết định điều gì cho đến ngày hôm sau để có thời gian cân nhắc thêm/nghĩ thâu đêm trước khi quyết định cho một việc.

Ví dụ
Pak suggests taking your time and doing thorough research before being certain. "Before you jump in, take a pause (tạm ngừng),, talk to a financial professional, sleep on it, and then make a decision," says Pak.

“It was only 10 days ago that I made up my mind (tự quyết định) and I sat down with Alan and told him straight away. It came as a bit of a bombshell (vấn đề làm xôn xao dư luận) to him, but he understood and he told me to sleep on it for a week before making it public.

I wrote at the start of the article that Country and Blues goes hand-in-hand with community and good times. It definitely does. But when it’s delivered by a band as pure and great as The Teskey Brothers, well, it just goes to another level. If you ever get a chance to see them live, don’t sleep on it. You won’t be disappointed.

"Sleep it off" = Ngủ khi tác dụng của thuốc hay bia rượu hết hiệu quả.

Ví dụ
If you’ve had too much to drink and want to sleep it off in your, don’t leave the engine on.

The teenager went back to bed thinking she had a hangover (nôn mửa, tàn dư do uống say) and could sleep it off but sadly never woke up and later died of meningitis (viêm màng não).

Such an act has long been regarded as equivalent (tương đương) to DUI under state law, but advocates (ủng hộ, tán thành) of the change say letting people sleep it off in their cars is safer. It is legal to sleep it off if the engine isn’t running and keys aren’t in the ignition (sự bốc cháy, đốt lửa), but that may not be an option in winter.

"Slow but sure" nghĩa là gì?

Như câu thành ngữ "Chậm mà chắc" trong tiếng Việt, "Slow but sure" là cụm từ chỉ những phát triển/tiến bộ theo tiến độ chậm nhưng chúng ổn định, chắc chắn và đáng tin cậy.

Ví dụ
In the months following the incident (sự cố), he made a slow but sure recovery (hồi phục). But his encounters (cuộc gặp gỡ/chạm trán) with his insurance company have made things especially challenging.

There is also a slow but sure movement of senior (trình độ cao) people from the corporate sector (khu vực kinh doanh) into the social impact (tác động/ảnh hưởng) space, and that’s another group that can bring a lot of value to NGOs if they can be managed effectively by leaders and organisations.

As CEO, Cyrille Jomand, said: “The market is mature and highly knowledgeable. Americans were among our first non-French customers to buy wines such as Clos Rougeard, natural wines, wines from the Jura… “Given the constraints (sức ép/ràng buộc) that already exist when it comes to importing, our progress on this market has been slow but sure; it has shown itself to be very reactive and dynamic. Our turnover (doanh thu) increased by 62% between 2018 and 2019 (January-September)..."

"Sleep away" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Kinga Cichewicz

"Sleep away" = Ngủ lia lịa/ngủ lan man/ngủ xuyên suốt trong một thời gian dài/chỉ dành thời gian vào việc ngủ.

Ví dụ
It's the time of year when grizzly bears (gấu xám Bắc Mỹ) head to their dens (hang) and sleep away the winter, and Parks Canada knows exactly where bear 49 sleeps.

With Halloween only one sleep away, Jennifer Garner is taking to social media to plead (biện hộ, bào chữa) her case: funny costumes (trang phục) are better than sexy ones.

He was also made the subject of a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order. Kelly must not sleep away from his own house unless he has warned anyone — both male and female — about his condition and explained the risks involved. Kelly, of Dalton-le-Dale, County Durham, was further banned from contacting the complainant (người phàn nàn, khởi kiện) in the case.

Despite all efforts to save him, we have had to take the difficult decision to put him to sleep. 'Archie was a very special horse in many respects.

A new home has finally been found for a stray dog (chó bị lạc) who was suspected of being raped (bị cưỡng hiếp) by a human before authorities threatened to put her to sleep.

"Not sleep a wink" nghĩa là gì?

Cú đêm. Photo by  James Lee

"Not sleep a wink" = Không một lần nháy mắt -> Không ngủ/không ngủ giấc nào cả.

Ví dụ
(Through interpreter) We did not sleep a wink last night. And my son had a nosebleed (chảy máu cam). We had to get out of the house today.

The Geordie Shore star took to Instagram to admit that being eight months pregnant (mang thai) is no walk in the park: “So I did not sleep a wink last night, struggling to breathe, it’s got to that point now. Having to watch Casey snoozing away (ngủ xuyên suốt, ngủ gà ngủ gật) is so frustrating.”

From the moment he recovered consciousness until his death in 1955, Kern did not sleep a wink. Though sleep is considered by everyone else to be a necessary part of human life. There are many physical reasons for this – sleep causes proteins in the brain to be released, it cuts off synapses that are unnecessary, and restores cognitive function (chức năng về nhận thức). People who go without sleep have hallucinations (ảo giác) and personality changes. Sleeplessness has even killed laboratory rats (chuột bạch, vật bị làm thí nghiệm).

"Sleep rough" nghĩa là gì?

“I had to sleep rough to gain the trust of the homeless community and I wanted to see this woman. "I did see her – very like my sister but not her.

More than 800 victims of modern slavery (cảnh nô lệ trong thế giới hiện đại) were forced to sleep rough in London last year because of gaps in the help given to survivors of exploitation (sự khai thác, bóc lột), a report warned today.

"Get off to sleep" nghĩa là gì?

Tranh thủ làm một giấc liền. Photo by Dan Gold

"Get off to sleep" = Cuối cùng có thể bắt đầu ngủ sau khi gặp phải vấn đề khó khăn/ảnh hưởng đến giấc ngủ.

Ví dụ
If you’re struggling (gặp khó khăn, chiến đấu) to get off to sleep at bedtime, here are some tips (cách, mẹo) to employ tonight. But if waking in the night is your problem – followed by difficulty in getting back to sleep – then you might need to try some different tricks.

A range of medical conditions can contribute to poor sleep, from reflux (triều xuống, hồi lưu) to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (rối loạn tăng động giảm chú ý). These must be identified and treated before considering specific sleep medication. One medical treatment is using the sleep hormone melatonin. This has to be prescribed (kê đơn thuốc) for children and should be monitored for effectiveness. Research shows that while it doesn’t always improve the total duration of sleep, it can help children get off to sleep in the first place.

He explained: "I've had depression a couple of times, quite bad. The problem is when you start the treatment you're on a low ebb (trong tình hình khó khăn). Most of the treatment takes a few weeks to kick in." He continued: "One day of depression is an eternity (sự kéo dài mãi, vĩnh viễn)), and then another day and another day. The awful thing for me was you have sleep disturbance (làm mất yên tĩnh, nhiễu loạn) and can't get off to sleep. You have early morning awakening. It's 4am, it's dark, and you're left with your mind that has dark thoughts. It's very difficult."

"Eternal sleep" nghĩa là gì?

Ngủ thôi mà, có cần phải cute vậy không? Photo by henriette valkema

"Eternal sleep" = Giấc ngủ bất diệt -> Lối nói giảm nói tránh về sự chết/ai đó đã mất.

Ví dụ
On Día de los Muertos the dead are also a part of the community, awakened from their eternal sleep to share celebrations with their loved ones.

The valley's inhabitants (dân cư, người cư trú) were saved, but the giant had broken his one rule by killing the ogre (yêu tinh, quỷ ăn thịt người), and the punishment was eternal sleep.


Instead of observing a sol­emn (long trọng, uy nghiêm) day for those who have passed away (đã khuất), some of us hold hangover Halloween parties in cemeteries – passing on the gin bottle; passing on a card across a cement-cold poker bed; or passing on the microphone to a frustrated singer in the family whose unforgiving voice provides enough spiny tingle (sự kích động, bị châm) to rouse (khuấy động, đánh thức) the dead from eternal sleep.

"Be sleeping with the fishes" nghĩa là gì?

Đời lênh đênh. Photo by Tim Marshall

"Be sleeping with the fishes" = Ngủ cùng với cá -> Ai đó bị giết và bị ném xác xuống sông, biển, hồ, nước...

Ví dụ
With the election fast approaching, perhaps Bevin is worried if this deal dies, his political career could be sleeping with the fishes.

With only three episodes left in the season it was later for Wardog but strutting (giằng, chống đỡ) around the island as a godfather talking down to people is a sure way to make sure you will eventually be sleeping with the fishes. The fact that the decision was unanimous (nhất trí, đồng lòng) speaks volumes about Wardog’s gameplay.

A fed-up 66% of you are not taking any chances. As far as you’re concerned, Shiloh could not be any deader. After what he did to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), not to mention all those other day-player cult members… after the danger he posed to Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and baby Wiley/Jonah… after all that, he deserves to be sleeping with the fishes.

"In like Flynn" nghĩa là gì?

Má anh chờ con dâu lâu lắm rồi. Anh phải nhanh dẫn em về thôi!! Photo by sept commercial on Unsplash

"In like Flynn" nghĩa là đạt thành công, sự tán thưởng; làm rất nhanh và hăng hái. Cụm từ này đề cập đến Errol Flynn - người đàn ông rất thành công trong việc chinh phục phụ nữ trong thập niên 40 và khả năng thu hút phái đẹp này của ông đã được biết đến trên toàn thế giới.

Ví dụ
I find that most people either love or hate ‘dupes’ (hàng nhái) (cheaper copies of more expensive products). I always try them for comparison, and hand on heart admit to loving most of the Aldi ones, so when they introduced their Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser (200ml, €4.99) I was in like Flynn. I nearly missed out as it sold out instantly!

On a lighter note, have you ever heard anybody say he was “in like Flynn?” Wikipedia says: “In like Flynn” is a slang phrase meaning “having quickly or easily achieved a goal or gained access as desired.” In the 1940s, the term became associated with the actor Errol Flynn, who was known as something of a ladies man. So, to be “in like Flynn” also came to mean to be successful in love, so to speak.

Very little is required now in order to go racing, following a major refit (sự sửa chữa, tân trang) just this year to bring her back to a fine level, commensurate with (xứng với) her distinguished (xuất sắc) pedigree (dòng). So grab the crew, grow the mos and mullets, wear your horizontally striped (sọc ngang) rugby tops, and severely under-sized shorts, don (khoác lên) your chrome (thuốc nhuộm màu vàng) or gold plate sunnies, with some zinc (mạ kẽm) liberally applied to your nose, and you're in like Flynn.

"Got to go home and get my beauty sleep" = Phải về nhà và ngủ một giấc thật ngon/giấc ngủ tươi đẹp -> Phải về vì muộn quá muộn rồi/về để ngủ vì ngủ có thể làm người ta đẹp, tươi trẻ và hấp dẫn hơn.

Ví dụ
"I've got to go home and get my beauty sleep and I can tell myself, I did my best today and couldn't do any better."

I've got to go home and get my beauty sleep'.” Dyer told how he later froze on stage: “I was right on the verge of crying (sắp khóc), I could feel my bottom lip going.

Having served as a judge (thẩm phán) in drug court, Barton said he has seen the results of letting drug abusers go free. “I’m not going to turn her lose and let this thing turn on me,’’ he said. “I’ve got to go home and sleep.” Both Grossman and prosecutor (bên nguyên, bên khởi tố) Liberty Stewart said they working on finding a treatment facility suitable for Quick.

"Kick like a mule" nghĩa là gì?

Chơi kỳ vậy chú em! Photo by Ashley Jurius on Unsplash

"Kick like a mule/steer" = như con la/bò đực đá -> cụm từ này nghĩa là đá rất mạnh.

Ví dụ
A vivid (sặc sỡ) blue bar offers citrusy cocktails that kick like a mule on DMT while the clean, open-plan restaurant features wall hangings more colourful than Joseph’s Dreamcoat.

Aaron Leming has the pain tolerance (sự chịu đựng) to kick like a mule with typhoid (bệnh thương hàn), but scouts (hướng đạo sinh) say a strong concern with the finality of death could be an issue

And then the four-speed auto, which Yuri says is supposed to kick like a mule, well if there was ever a car I would go to war for a manual on, it’s something with two seats, open top, exposed steering linkage (sự liên kết) in the front, and the name “Plymouth Prowler.”

"Đàn ông xây nhà, đàn bà xây tổ ấm." Photo by cottonbro from Pexels 

"The lady of the house" = đàn bà của ngôi nhà -> người phụ nữ chăm sóc và quản lý ngôi nhà/ trụ cột gia đình. 

Ví dụ 
Marc explains the reason why sewing machines (máy may) were so ornate (hoa mỹ) and pretty, it was because the lady of the house usually placed it in the living room. 

Once I found a yard that needed mowing (cắt cỏ), I would knock on the door and – putting on my best Eddie Haskell approach – I proceeded to tell, usually the lady of the house, how good of a job I would do. 

One employee of Epstein’s called Maxwell the “lady of the house,” referring to his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida. Some accusers have also said Maxwell at times participated with Epstein in abusing them sexually (lạm dụng tình dục).

"Soul kiss" nghĩa là gì?

"Soul kiss" = Nụ hôn tinh thần/linh hồn -> Nụ hôn nồng cháy và mãnh liệt như nụ hôn Pháp "French Kiss" . :))

Ví dụ
French president Francois Hollande moves into a soul kiss with Valerie Trierweiler, who has since been dumped for a mistress (tình nhân).Source:AP.

The erotic (gợi tình, tình ái) or passion lip-to-lip lock (khóa chặt môi lại) called the Basia or Basium, and the soul kiss called Suavia or Savium, known today as the French kiss.

In France, a French kiss is called a soul kiss because, if done right, it feels as if two souls are merging (hợp hai linh hồn làm một). In fact, several ancient cultures believed that mouth-to-mouth kissing mingled (trộn lẫn) two lovers' souls.

"Women of easy virtue" nghĩa là gì?

Dù làm nghề gì, thì họ cũng là con người với đầy đủ quyền công dân. Photo by Danielle Pilon from Pexels 

"Lady/women of easy virtue" = phụ nữ dễ dãi -> gái điểm, lẳng lơ.

Ví dụ
Most children living in low-income (thu nhập thấp) communities in Nigeria lack good models. Some of the children in my classroom live in communities where their next-door neighbours are hoodlums (du côn) or women of easy virtue.

A Supreme Court (Tòa án Tối cao) bench said in a landmark judgment that even if the prosecutrix (người khởi tố) is a sex worker or a woman of easy virtue, she has the right to refuse to submit herself to sexual intercourse (giao cấu) to anyone.

The ministry says that the patrol (đội tuần tra) will not be a separate police department, but will be identifiable (nhận dạng) per its dress code and will be responsible for ‘removing women of easy virtue who offer tourists sexual services’ from the central streets.

"Lamourette's kiss" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Juan Gomez

"Lamourette's kiss" = Nụ hôn của Lamourette -> Chỉ sự điều giải/hòa giải tạm thời, giả dối và không thành thật. Nụ hôn này liên quan đến Abbe Lamourette, ông là người đã hiệp nhất/liên kết với các bè cánh khác nhau trong Quốc hội Pháp vào năm 1792.

Ví dụ
The Lamourette's kiss offers Xi much-needed political capital, and buys him time to push his domestic agenda (nghị trình trong nước).

Had Gabriel not died, Alison may not have had the affair with Noah, which in flip led to the Lamourette's kiss with Cole that conceived (nhận thức được, tưởng tượng được) Joanie.

Investors should note that though there was Lamourette's kiss in the U.S.-Sino trade relations (quan hệ thương mại) in the recently-concluded G-20 meet, concerns flared up after Canada arrested Huawei Technologies Co.'s Chief Financial Officer Wanzhou Meng, who is wanted by U.S. authorities for supposedly violating Iran sanctions (sự phê chuẩn, sắc lệnh). iShares Asia 50 ETFAIA lost about 1.7% on Dec 6 and will likely rattle the global market.

"Faint heart never won fair (lady)" = trái tim yếu đuối không thể dành lấy (người phụ nữ) tốt -> phải tự tin, dũng cảm, mạnh dạn theo đuổi người phụ nữ/ điều mình yêu.

Ví dụ 
Faint heart never won fair lady, we've often heard. And what better way to win a fair lady than by a sexy striptease (thoát y)?

The strategy (chiến lược) by Dyche was risky but faint heart never wins fair lady and we very nearly did it at Old Trafford.

And if you make it past the front door, her friends will descend on (hạ mình) you like the death gauntlet from The Running Man.Good luck and remember what the Irish say: faint of heart never won fair lady.

There is a saying that goes 'faint heart never won fair maiden'. In the best case scenario, the application of this idiom could prompt someone to make a bold romantic gesture (hành động lãng mạn táo bạo), such as firing himself from a canon with a rose in his mouth.

"It's not over until the fat lady sings" nghĩa là gì?

Đừng nản lòng bởi, chưa công bố kết quả thì vẫn chưa biết ai sẽ thắng mà. Photo by Elle Hughes from Pexels

"It's not over until the fat lady sings" hoặc "it ain't over till/until the fat lady sings" = vẫn chưa hạ màn khi cô béo chưa hát -> 30 chưa phải là Tết, kết quả chưa phải là cuối cùng khi chưa kết thúc chương trình/sự kiện chính trị... 

Ví dụ
They say it’s not over until the fat lady sings, but surely it is impossible for Aidan O’Brien to win his eighth British trainers’ championship.

Blackwell had won Star Baker more than all of the other competitors, and in fact Atherton hadn’t won the title yet. But it’s not over until the fat lady sings as they say— his win made him the first winner in 10 seasons of the show to not have won Star Baker during the competition!

It's not over until the fat lady sings," the saying goes. In this case, the fat lady sang its throaty tune at 10:15 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, when both Chevrolet Corvette C7.R race cars crossed the start-finish line one last time at the 2019 Petit Le Mans endurance (nhẫn nại, chịu đựng) race at Road Atlanta.
