"Glancing blow" nghĩa là gì?


"Glancing blow" có glancing là sượt qua, blow là cú đánh ->  từ này nghĩa là cú đánh nhẹ, sượt qua, không gây tổn hại lớn; nghĩa (rộng) là điều gì có tác động nhỏ/một phần.

Ví dụ
The aircraft skidded (trượt) over the ground toward a stationary (đứng yên) aircraft, striking a glancing blow against the nose of an Ilyushin Il-76 transport aircraft before exploding and cartwheeling (nhào lộn) into the crowd of spectators.

The deputy took evasive (lảng tránh) action and was able to make the collision a “glancing blow” crash instead of a major head-on crash. The deputy and the other driver were checked out at a local hospital and released.

She added: "This is a glancing blow compared to what will be affecting (ảnh hưởng) England and Wales with our weather turning fresher and more unsettled on Wednesday."

There were also beer cans, water bottles, half-eaten hot dogs, basically anything that wasn’t bolted down. Kiffin actually was hit on the side of the leg with a golf ball. It was just a glancing blow, however.
