英国人素以绅士风度闻名。但最新研究证实,英国人平均每天要说谎四次!但是,我们从这些little lies中却可以学到不少短小精悍的地道口语表达。让我们一起跟着优雅的英国人学学怎么“吹牛”吧!

Researchers found the average Briton tells on average four lies every day or almost 1500 every year.

研究发现,每个英国人平均每天要说谎四次,或者每年约说谎1500次。

A spokesman for OnePoll, which carried out the research of 4,300 adults, said: "As a nation we are obsessed with trying to be nice and not upsetting people.

该研究由英国市场调查公司OnePoll策划,共调查了4300位英国成年人。其发言人对研究结果表示“我们民族太讲究礼貌了,(说谎是为了)不想让别人感到不适。”

"Often little white lies can paper over what we actually want to say. Most of these were considered either completely harmless or tactically necessary depending on the situation in which they are delivered."

“人们说的这些善意的小谎言是为了掩饰我们真正想说的话。大多数小谎言都是完全无害的,或者说这些小谎言是在特定情况下必须用的战术手段。”

He added: "It was sad to see a string of compliments in the top 50, but once again in many cases perhaps it is better to flatter with a fib than destroy someone with the truth."

这位发言人还表示,“在人们最常说的50句谎言中,有很多是恭维话,这不是一件好事。但是,需要再次强调的是,与其说实话而伤害到别人,不如说些可以让人高兴的小谎话,这样做似乎更合适。”
