It’s a steal!



廣東話說“好抵呀”,已經不只“值”,而是“超值”。我曾經想過英文怎樣表達這“抵”的意思,結果只想到 It’s a good/nice deal; It’s a bargain, 或 It’s good value for money, 但都和”抵”有距離。

我在Facebook 和lexicographer Andrew 討論這問題的時候,剛好他的朋友Matthew看到,指出英文的It’s/That’s a steal, 最接近廣東話的”好抵” 的意思和語域(register)。

老實說,我一直不知道有It’s a steal 這說法,So I paid nothing, but learnt a useful expression. It’s a steal!
