sry 是什麼的縮寫、什麼意思?

圖片
最常見的就是 sorry (抱歉) 
feeling sadness, sympathy, or disappointment, especially because something unpleasant has happened or been done. (cambridge dictionary)

比較適合像是「打線上遊戲的時候稍微害到隊友的程度」,需要比較誠懇的時候還是別縮寫了吧
除此之外也可能是一些地名、單位、專有名詞的縮寫,要依照上下文判斷,例如:
Sex determining Region of Y-Chromosome Y染色體性別決定區 (SRY基因)
Southern Railway of British Columbia (SRY鐵路)
Dash-e Naz Airport (機場代碼剛好是 SRY)
...等等
必要的話可以參考以下資源

端午節的英文怎麼說,還有龍舟、粽子、立蛋的各種講法

圖片
端午節
Dragon Boat Festival
最常見的講法。Dragon Boat 就是龍舟 (wikipeidamerriam-webster)
Dragon Boat Race = 龍舟賽
Double Fifth Festival
Double: 雙倍, Fifth: 第五
因為端午節是農曆 5 月 5 號,有些地區亦有「重五節」的說法
Duanwu Festival
duan wu 就是端午的漢語拼音,因為在國外生活的華人很多,端午節也算是大事,不少老外會知道。這種從別的語言 reborrowing 變成英文可溝通的例子其實不少,特別是其背後的文化背景很難完美翻譯的,例如:功夫 Kung fu、江湖 Jianghu 等。
粽子
sticky rice dumpling
sticky rice = 糯米 dumpling 包餡料的食物類型,如餃子、小籠包、湯圓、湯圓 有些字典會直接叫 rice dumpling
Zongzi
(zong zi) 跟 Duanwu 一樣道理 (wikipedia)
立蛋
egg balancing
wikipedia
stand/balance an egg (on its end)
Science Myth: Can You Balance an Egg on the Spring Equinox?
科學迷思:你可以在春分的時候立蛋嗎?

ikr 是什麼的縮寫?中文是什麼意思

IKR 是 I know, right? 的縮寫

urbandictionary 的解釋
acronym for "I know, right?" - the rhetorical response to any statement of undeniable truth. Used in IM or text based conversations (also, "IK,R?") and NEVER acceptable as spoken aloud (eye kay are.) - https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=IKR%3F 其實就是表現比較誇張的「同意」、「就是啊!」

要注意的是不應該唸成 I - K - R,要唸就唸 I know, right?
