看新聞 學英文

譚學文

Oust /aʊst/

Verb.

被趕下臺;罷免;廢黜;淘汰的意思

通常是指某人在不願意的情況下被趕下臺。最近美國又一要員Steve Bannon 被趕出白宮,他原來的位置是chief strategist. 所以美國The Telegraph 報導如下:

Steve Bannon flares ‘Trump presidency is over’ after being ousted as White House chief strategist.

很多時候oust 都會是用在被動的情況,oust 便會變成ousted.

例如: The president was ousted in a military coup in February 總統在二月的一次軍事政變中被趕下臺。

Last year’s winners have been ousted from the tournament. 去年的勝利者在聯赛杯中被淘汰出局。
