《今日一字》Lesson 7 - Limbo

哈嘍!!大家好^^我是艾爾斯英語小老師,Jade~~
不知道大家對於NBA的籃球消息有沒有興趣呢如果有的話,你們應該對於 Lebron James 的消息趕到很震撼吧!!在他還沒決定要簽給哪一隊時,大家可都是徬徨的在等待著他的決定呢所以發放消息時連Cleveland Cavaliers 的老闆都感到相當的震驚以及錯愕!! 只能說,希望他做的決定是對他最好的嘍!!!^^


Limbo
這個字在最早期的時期在基督徒的信仰中指的是並未接受 “洗禮” 的孩子或靈魂,以基督徒的立場來說,也可以說是在地獄的邊境.
現在人用這個字來表達在不確定、等待的期間、被忽略或被遺忘的意思。
Based on Christian beliefs the supposed abode (here used as noun) meaning home or a place for soul of those who are un-baptised infants and of the just who died before Christ’s arrival.
Nowadays, people use it as a state of an uncertain period of awaiting decision or resolution. Or it could be used as in being neglected or oblivion, note that oblivion and limbo are interchangeable in most cases.

An uncertain situation that you cannot control and in which there is no progress or improvement
A West Indian dance, very rarely will you encounter such form of dance

不確定感,中間狀態或位置,忽略
KK音標 KK [ˋlɪm͵bo],

Example 1: Prior to Lebron James’s final decision, the destiny of the Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball Organization is in limbo.
Lebron James做決定之前, Cleveland Cavaliers球隊對未來的決策一直是處於不確定的狀態中。 

Example 2: On July 9th in 2010, Lebron James, who is inarguably one of the most formidable and talented basketball players of all time, has announced his decision to join the Miami Heat Organization rather than resigning with his previous tarnished team. Follow by this catastrophic news; the Cleveland Cavaliers fans are left in an emotional limbo and crestfallen crisis.
Lebron James 不可否認的,是籃球史上最傑出以及最有天賦的選手之一。但在79號做出驚人的決定後,宣布不會繼續留在現任的球隊,而選擇加入Miami Heat Organization。當這個消息一宣佈時, Cleveland Cavaliers的球迷們立即感到氣餒並覺得自己的支持被忽略了!!
