오늘도 색깔에서 유래한 재미있는 영어표현을 알아보겠습니다. 


White elephant 우리말로 하얀 코끼리  

이건 또 무슨 뜻일까요? 불교문화가

 뿌리깊은 아시아에서는 하얀 코끼리를

 부처님을 상징하는 비범한 동물로 

여기기도 하는데요 영어에서는 

어찌보면 정반대의 의미로 쓰이고 있습니다. 

영어로 white elephant는 이러지도 저러지도 

못하는 애물단지의 의미로 쓰입니다. 


그 유래는 영국의 찰스1세가 외국으로부터 

받은 흰코끼리의 엄청난 식성과 관리비용을 

감당하지 못해 처분 하려고 했지만 

외국에서 받은 선물이라는 외교적 이유로 

처리하지 못하고 난처해 했다는 

이야기에서 비롯되었습니다. 


☑️ white elephant

[화이트 엘레펀트]

애물단지 / 처치 곤란한 물건



✏️ [예문] 

 It's a white elephant to me. 

그것은 가지고 있어봤자 거추장스럽기만 해요



 This piano has become 

an expensive white elephant.

이 피아노는 비싼 애물단지가 되어버렸어요
