      情景对话:

      A: How I wish my son Mark could be as excellent as your Joe!

      我真希望我家的Mark能像你家的Joe那么出色。

      B: Don’t be too humble. Few young men could be equal to Mark. And in some respects Joe and Mark are neck and neck .

      别太谦虚了,没几个年轻人能赶得上Mark,Mark和Joe是并驾齐驱的。

      A: I agree. Both Joe and Mark are men of guts.

      也是,Joe和Mark都是男子汉。

      地道表达:

      neck and neck

      解词释义:

      该习语原指赛马的时候,两匹马齐头并进,观察的基准是马的脖子,所以人们用neck and neck来表示这个意思。后来它被逐渐运用到各个领域,用来表示“难分高低”“并驾齐驱”或者是“旗鼓相当”等意思。

      应用举例:

      I mean to catch him up and come neck and neck into the winning post.

      我决心追上他, 和他齐头并进, 去夺取胜利。

      The horses were running neck and neck.

      这些马跑得不分上下。

      As they approached the finish line they were neck and neck.

      在抵达终点线时,他们齐头并进。
