战前的;尤指美国南北战争之前的

原文举例:
Savannah’s grand architecture, a mix of masterpieces that spans the pre-Revolution period to the antebellum years to Reconstruction in the post-Civil War era, is an authentication to its colonial past with its red brick, wrought iron, stucco and even tabby, the so-called coastal concrete that’s a mix of lime, water and oyster shells.

英汉解释

英汉解释:
a swampy grassland especially in southern Florida usually containing saw grass and at least seasonally covered by slowly moving water —usually used in plural

原文举例:

The Everglades provides important habitat for numerous species like the manatee, American crocodile and the elusive Florida panther. The park has long been a birder’s paradise -- it is the winter home of more than 360 different species of birds.

Big Sur

英汉解释:
one of the world’s most unforgettable stretches of coastline. This roughly 90-mile-long stretch of redwood- and fog-trimmed waterfront between Carmel-by-the-Sea and Hearst Castle draws you (and writers like Henry Miller and Beat Generation darling Jack Kerouac) in with a magic allure that is almost palpable. (visitcalifornia.com)
中文翻译:大瑟尔,或大苏尔。大瑟尔美国加利福尼亚中部海岸的一段崎岖不平的地带。东临圣卢西亚山脉(Santa Lucia Mountains),西临太平洋,狭窄的2车道1号州公路(State Route 1)横贯而过,这条公路以蜿蜒曲折、常常雾蒙蒙的海岸线而闻名。这个人口稀少的地区有许多可供徒步旅行、露营和海滩漫步的州立公园。

原文举例:
The classic drive through Big Sur, along twisting Highway 1, offers plenty of pullovers at places like seen-it-in-a-million-car-commercials Bixby Bridge. Stop at parks along the coastline and look up to see endangered California condors, North America’s largest birds, or look down to scan the swells for migrating whales or sea otters floating among dense beds of kelp, California’s signature seaweed. Campgrounds abound, like Big Sur Campground, Fernwood Resort, Riverside Campground, and Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. (visitcalifornia.com/)

saguaro
noun [səˈwɑːrəʊ ] 注意:没有“g”的发音

英汉解释:
The saguaro is a tree-like cactus species in the monotypic genus Carnegiea that can grow to be over 12 meters tall. It is native to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, the Mexican state of Sonora, and the Whipple Mountains and Imperial County areas of California. (wikipedia)
树形仙人掌; 这种树形仙人掌可高达15米左右, 其中大部分是水。很多鸟就在树形仙人掌上面打洞安家。

原文举例:
The saguaro is one of 51 species of cactus that are native to Arizona, but it is undoubtedly the most well known. You may have seen one in a Western movie set in Texas or New Mexico, but chances are the filming actually took place right here, because the cactus can only be found in the lush Sonoran Desert of Arizona, as well as our southern neighbor state of Sonora, Mexico, and in some areas of southeastern California.
