英语口语 | “嘴硬”英语怎么说?

在生活和工作中,我们经常能遇到一种人,他们特别的“嘴硬”,明知自己做错了事情却不承认。

“嘴硬(literally hard mouth)”,比喻“自知理亏而口头上不肯认错或服输”,英文翻译为“stubborn and reluctant to admit mistakes or defeats”。

其反义词为“服软”,翻译为“admit defeat;acknowledge one’s mistake”。

  • 明明错了,就不要再嘴硬了。
    It’s obvious that you are wrong, so don’t stubbornly insist that you are not.
  • 做错了事还嘴硬什么?
    Why don’t you admit your mistakes?
