Neil
Feifei, why are you cutting holes in that bed sheet?

Feifei
我在给今天晚上的聚会准备服装呢。我准备打扮成一个女鬼 “a female ghost”。What about you?

Neil
I don’t really feel like it, Feifei.

Feifei
I thought you were bringing your new girlfriend?

Neil
Sadly not. She hasn’t replied to any of my messages for a whole week.

Feifei
Oh, sorry, Neil. Looks like she’s ghosting you.

Neil
No, like I just said, she’s not coming tonight. You’ll be the only ghost at the party, I’m afraid!

Feifei
我上面说的 “ghosting” 和 “鬼” 没有关系。“Ghosting” 是一个现代英语俚语。如果你 “ghost” 某人,意思就是你突然停止和这个人的一切交流,没有任何解释。

Neil
Oh, right. Yes, she doesn’t answer my calls, doesn’t reply to my texts.

Feifei
That’s ghosting. 有些人会用突然消失 “ghosting” 的方法来结束一段恋情,正可谓是神出 “鬼” 没,人间蒸发。

Neil
So, are you saying she wants to split up with me?

Feifei
I don’t know, but it’s not a very nice way to treat people. “Ghosting” 除了可以指在恋爱中,一个人 “突然消失”,它也可以用来描述朋友之间突然不再联系对方。Anyway, help me cut this second eye out of my ghost costume while we play some examples.

Examples
Katya felt awful for weeks after being ghosted by a guy she really liked.

Keiko wanted to break up with her boyfriend but didn’t want to upset him. So when he suddenly started ghosting her, she actually felt relieved.

Jorge and Rafa used to hang out all the time at school. But once they started university, Jorge just ghosted Rafa.

Feifei
这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。在这集节目中,我们给大家介绍现代俚语 “ghosting” 的意思和用法。And, Neil… there we are! One ghost costume. Thanks for your help.

Neil
Oh, I just want to know why, Feifei. Why is she ghosting me? What did I do wrong?

Feifei
Neil, that’s the difficult thing about ghosting. You won’t get those answers. Sorry.

Neil
Oh, it’s her.

Feifei
哎,快看看她说什么?

Neil
“Sorry, Neil. I lost my phone last week and only just found it again. Call me. Kiss.”

Feifei
There you go!

Neil
She sent a kiss! Feifei, let’s make her a costume – I’m going to invite her to this party.

Feifei
OK! One more ghost costume?

Neil
No, I think I’ve had enough ghosts for one day.

Both
Bye.
