A lion was very hungry and went out of the forest to look for food . 一头狮子饥肠辘辘,便走出森林去寻找食物。

 

   An ass and a cock were in a straw yard together. The lion approached the place. 一条驴子和一支雄鸡同住在一个草场里。狮子向那地方靠近。

 

   The lion was about to spring upon the ass, when the cock crowed loudly (1) and the lion fled away as fast as he could. It is said that the lion has a singular aversion to the sound of the cock’s voice. 正当狮子要扑向驴子的时候,雄鸡高声啼叫起来。于是,狮子拼命地逃走了。据说,狮子特别厌恶雄鸡的叫声。

 

   The ass saw that the lion ran away at the mere crowing of a cock, and therefore summoned courage to attack the lion, and galloped after him for that purpose. 驴子看见,雄鸡仅仅叫了几声,狮子就吓跑了,因此,鼓足勇气,准备进攻狮子,为此,快速奔跑,去追赶狮子。

 

   The ass had run no long distance (2), when the lion turned about and seized him and tore him to pieces. 驴子没有跑多远,狮子就回转身来,抓住他,将他撕为碎片。

 

   False confidence often leads into danger. 错误的自信,常常将人带入险境。

Notes:

1.        …the cock crowed loudly…

句中的loudly是副词,不仅表示“高声地”,还含有“喧闹、嘈杂”的意思。它与副词loudaloud只是近义, 因为loud只表示“音量大”,常与动词sing, speak, talk, say, shout, scream, laugh 等连用。而aloud强调出声,声音不一定大,但要让别人听见,常与动词boast, brag, cry, demand, insist, explain等连用。比如:Please read aloud.(请朗读。)/ She was singing loud in hr room.(她在自己的屋里高声歌唱。)/ The bomb exploded loudly.(炸弹轰地一声爆炸了。)

2.        The ass had run no long distance…

句中的名词性短语no long distance(不长的距离)作状语。下面的名词性短语也是作状语:He walked five miles. (他步行5英里)/ She worked three hours. (她工作了3小时。)
