Vicki: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Vicki.
Lilly: And I’m 杨莉莉.
Vicki: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that have recently become part of the English language.
Lilly: 在Real English，也就是《地道英语》节目中，我们会带领大家一起来学习和熟悉一些近代英式英语里新出现的词汇和新说法.
Vicki: It’s very important to stay up-to-date with English as new words and expressions enter the language all the time.
Lilly: You are right Vicky, 那今天的新词是什么呢？
Vicki: Today’s new word is ‘kip’ – K.I.P.- kip.
Lilly: Kip 拼写倒是不难，到底是什么意思呢。
Vicki: It’s very simple. Kip is another word for sleep.
Lilly: 真的，原来 kip 就是睡觉的意思。在句子里怎么使用呢?
Vicki: The same way as sleep. It’s a noun and a verb, so you can say ‘I didn’t get much kip last night’ or ‘I didn’t kip much last night’.
Lilly: Vicky, 你的意思是你昨晚，你没睡好。
A: Are you coming to the party tonight?
B: No, I’m going to stay home and get some kip. I’m really tired at the moment.
Vicki: I had a lovely kip last night.
Vicki: Yes. I haven’t been kipping very well lately, but last night was very good.
Lilly: What time did you go to sleep then?
Vicki: Well, I went to kip about 9, and didn’t wake up till 8 this morning!
Lilly: That’s a lot of kip!
Vicki: Yes, I needed a good kip, that’s for sure.
Vicki: Well, I’m afraid that’s all for today. You’ve been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. Join us again soon for more up-to-the-minute Real English. Bye.
Lilly: See you next time.再见
