fruition 男子中亿元大奖守约与朋友平分

fruition[fruˈɪʃn]

n.成就,实现; 结果实; 享受;

今天讲解fruition这个词,看字面应该也能猜测出大概的意思,fruit就是我们常用的“水果”一词,那么fruition就是引申含义的“成果、享受”。这个词常用的短语搭配就是: bring/come to fruition,表示:出结果、成为现实,类似 sth come true。

还有一些意思相近的词,如 achievement completion fulfilment

近日,一位美国男子多年前和老友的梦想成真,中了价值2200万美元,约合超过1亿人民币的彩票头奖,他按照约定将奖金与好友平分,一起来看看吧~顺便留个小作业,看看文中用了多少词,来描述“分”奖金这个动作吧。

正文:

A western Wisconsin man will share his millions in lottery winnings with a longtime friend because of a promise they made to each other 28 years ago.

美国威斯康辛州西部的一名男子将与多年老友平分他的百万彩票大奖,这一切都源于两人28年前的一个约定。

Friends Tom Cook and Joseph Feeney shook hands in 1992 and promised that if either one of them ever won the Powerball jackpot, they would split the money.

汤姆•库克和约瑟夫•菲尼这对好朋友在1992年彼此约定,如果任何一人中了强力球头奖,都会将奖金与对方平分。

That promise came to fruition last month when Cook bought the winning ticket for a $22 million jackpot at Synergy Coop in Menomonie, Wis.

这一承诺上月终于得以兑现,库克在威斯康辛州梅诺莫尼市Synergy Coop购买的强力球彩票竟中了头奖,奖金2200万美元。

When Cook called to give his friend the good news, Feeney couldn't quite believe it.

当库克打电话告诉好友这个好消息时,菲尼感到难以置信。

The men chose the cash option of about $16.7 million, leaving each with nearly $5.7 million after taxes are paid. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in about 292 million.

两人决定选择获得约1670万美元的现金奖励,在支付税金后他们各自能得到近570万美元。强力球彩票头奖的中奖概率约为2.92亿分之一。
