请教!

楼主:Andy Xue 日期: 回贴:2 浏览:

有一篇文章中的一部分不太明白,不知高手是否可以指教!
       Word Master中有一篇文章“'Black Friday': A Busy Shopping Day for Sure, but a Murky Origin”其中这一段
 
AA: "So here's a question we got by e-mail. It says, 'I've been living in the United States for almost twenty-nine years. Why do people call the day after Thanksgiving Day "Black Friday"?' And I understand you've done a little research into this."

BONNIE TAYLOR-BLAKE: "I should back up just for a second, though, and explain that he's in good company, because a lot of Americans were unfamiliar with the term Black Friday until about a decade ago. Its more modern application is in regard to profitability for the day. So a lot of people think that the black in Black Friday refers to ledger books going from negative values, which would be in the red, into positive values, which is into the black."

 

BONNIE TAYLOR BLAKE回答前先说的那些(红字标注的),是什么意思呀?

“我应该再一次鼓励一下,毕竟这个问题他和很多人一样,都感到迷惑,

可以这样解释吗

I should back up just for a second, though, and explain that he's in good company

1.) back up :支持

2.) just for a second:仅仅

3.)  in good company:简单来说,就是“很多人和他的情况一样”。

4.)全句的意思就是:我仅能提供一点帮助,告诉他,很多人和他一样不知道“Black Friday”的来历。

个人愚见,仅供参考。
