例句-1：Bob was so desperate for cash to pay six months overdue rent that he borrowed money at the interest rate of 5% a week. And now he's paying through the nose: every week he's late he has to pay an extra 5%.
这种每星期百分之五的利率是大大高于普通利率的。所以说he's paying through the nose， 意思是他在付过高的代价。
咱们再学个习气用语: cut off one's nose to spite one's face。 Spite意思是成心损伤，cut off one's nose to spite one's face听起来就感觉这样做的人很可悲，设想一下割下了本人的鼻子，损伤的不正是本人的脸吗? 好，咱们听一段例子来领会它的含意。这段话说的是Mary一时激动的举止给本人造成了什么结果。
例句-2：Mary got so mad at her boss she shouted at him in front of the whole staff. But she really cut off her nose to spite her face -- after that he blocked every chance she had for promotion.
咱们接著学下一个习气用语: plain as the nose on your face。 Plain在这儿的意思是不言而喻、一清二楚的，鼻子竖在脸蛋儿的地方，当然是不言而喻的。这就产生了这个作比喻用的习气用语。咱们来听个例子:
例句-3：It's plain as the nose on your face that Mark is better educated and more intelligent than most other people. His trouble is, he doesn't try to hide this and scares away bosses who aren't as smart.
所以plain as the nose on your face意思是“一清二楚”、“不言而喻的。”
最初再学一个习气用语: keep one's nose clean。这是个相当罕用的习气用语。咱们听个例子来领会它的含意。这是个火冒三丈爸爸在对儿子发火，由于他刚去警察局把老闯祸的儿子保了回来。
例句-4：Young man, this is the last time I'm going to bail you out of trouble! From now on, keep your nose clean or I'll just stand back and let you get fined and maybe get sent to jail.
显然这里习气用语keep your nose clean意思是不招惹费事。

-1:Bob was so desperate for cash to pay six months overdue rent that he borrowed money at the interest rate of 5% a week. And now he' s paying through the nose:; every week he' s late he has to pay an extra 5%.
Bob because of arrears of six months rent and had to borrow a pen high interest rates of money every week to pay five percent interest, if there is one week overdue he had to pay five percent rated.
the rate of five percent per week is much higher than the average rate. So he' s paying through the nose, which means he's paying too much.
let's learn another idiom: cut off one' s nose to spite one' s face. Spite means "cut off one'"; "s nose to spite one'"; s face sounds like a sad person. This is a sad thing to do. Suppose I cut my nose, and it is not my face that hurt. OK, let's listen to an example to understand its meaning. This is the result of Mary's transient behavior.
-2:Mary got so mad at her boss she shouted at him in front of the whole staff. But she really cut off her nose to spite her face that he blocked every chance after she had for promotion.
Mary he said: the boss is angry, because publicly told the boss a pass to Xiehen, but her for a moment but damage my boss, from the closing of the Mary all promotion opportunities.
Mary roared at the boss in the face of the whole employee. She meant to make a fool of the boss in public, but the result was the boss's use of power.
let's learn the idiom of an idiom: plain as the nose on your face. The meaning of Plain here is self-evident and clear, the nose is upright in the face of the face, of course, it is self-evident. This produces the idiom of this metaphor. Let's listen to an example:
-3:It' s plain as the nose; on your face that Mark is better educated and more intelligent than most other people. His trouble is he doesn' t try to hide this; and scares away bosses who aren' t as smart.
said: Mark education talents are quite outstanding. It was clear and self-evident, but his achievement was to stand out and scare away the ordinary bosses.
so plain as the nose on your face means "clear and clear" and "self-evident."
began to learn an idiom at first: keep one' s nose clean. This is a very rare idioms. Let's listen to an example to understand its meaning. This is a father to his son in the fire fly into a rage, because he had to go to the police station in the old son Paul back.
-4:Young man, this is the last time I' m going to bail you; out of trouble From now on, keep your! Nose clean or I' ll just stand back and; let you get fined and maybe get sent to jail.
he said: This is my first time to protect you. From now on you don't bother. I won't show you any more; I'll pay you to pay a fine and maybe go to jail.
obviously the idiom here keep your nose clean means not to provoke trouble.
