习语可以是一个词或短语,要理解习语的意思不能脱离其文化背景。习语一词的含义甚广,其蕴含的意义往往不能从词或词组的字面意思推测而得。习语在所有语言中都很常见; 仅在英语中,估计就有两万五千个习语。

今日习语(Idiom of the Day)

rattle the cage  

Meaning

to make someone feel worried or upset ; To purposefully anger, upset, or unnerve one, especially to affect their performance or undermine their credibility. (freedictionary)
试图通过激怒,愤怒或抗议来引起注意。有时用于政治术语,当一大群人聚集在一起通过抗议等,引起政治家或政党的注意,并提出他们的主张。

Example

Rattling the cage. Protests by women students for equality in hostel rules have sparked a debate on gender bias on campus. It's a first step.

Some protests may look like a sign of democratic decay amid a rise of populism and alienation with the political status quo—for example, in Brazil, the United States or France. Others may look like a futile rattling of the political cage under growing illiberalism and authoritarianism, such as in Hungary, Morocco or Thailand. More optimistically, protests in places like Algeria, Venezuela and Sudan may signal a heartening indicator of the persistent aspiration for democracy and peoples’ willingness to fight for it in very different parts of the world.

TORONTO -- After the furor at the Toronto International Film Festival over its Israeli film spotlight, now it's the turn of Arab filmmakers to rattle the festival's cage.
