新闻英语词汇 Journalism Vocabulary

quid pro quo noun [ C usually singular ]
/ˌkwɪd proʊ ˈkwoʊ/
plural quid pro quos

Meaning (Cambridge)
Something for something; something that is given to a person in return for something they have done
交换物;报酬;交换条件
The government has promised food aid as a quid pro quo for the stopping of violence. 政府许诺以食品援助作为停止暴力活动的交换条件。

Origin (etymonline)
1560s, from Latin, literally "something for something, one thing for another," from nominative and ablative neuter singulars of relative pronoun qui "who" (from PIE root *kwo-, stem of relative and interrogative pronouns) + pro "for" (see pro-) + quo, ablative of quid.

Citations
Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, told House committees last week that efforts by President Trump and his allies to press Kyiv to open investigations in exchange for a White House meeting with Ukraine’s president amounted to a quid pro quo, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Trump has denied that his decision to hold up aid was related to his push for investigations, repeatedly declaring there was “no quid pro quo.” Asked by a lawmaker whether that arrangement was a quid pro quo, Sondland cautioned that he wasn’t a lawyer but said he believed the answer was yes.
