Hi Neil, how are you?

Neil:

I'm fine thanks Li, how are you?

Li:

I'm good. Are you free on Saturday evening? I'm holding a small dinner party.



A man checking with his other half

Neil:

Saturday? Yeah, that would be fantastic but I'd better check with my other half.

Li:

Your other half?你说什么,你的另一半?

Neil:

Yes I'm not sure if my wife has anything planned for Saturday.

Li:

Oh! I didn't know you call your wife your other half. That's interesting.

Neil:

Yes. That's a phrase often used by married couples to refer to each other.

Li:

原来 other half就是我们汉语里的“我那位”。Let's hear some more examples:

A: How's your other half? Is she feeling better?

B: Oh yes, she is much better, thanks.

Lady: I like the colour of the car but I should ask my other half before I buy it.

A: Fancy another pint, John?

B: I'd love another pint but I promised my other half I'll be home early.

Neil:

So, people often refer to their partner as their other half.

Li:

Can this phrase be used to refer to both a husband and a wife?

Neil:

Yes, that's correct. And sometimes a man will refer to his wife as his'better half'.

Li:

Better half?更好的一半?Of course the woman is always the better half! Wouldn't you agree?

Neil:

Of course! My wife always reminds me that she's my better half!

Li:

Let's listen to a couple of examples:

A: Oh what a lovely room, you've made a great job of this.

B: Thanks, but compliments should really go to my better half, she chose all thecolours and the furniture.

A: Thanks for dinner last night. The food was fantastic!

B: You're welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a fun evening. I'm really lucky, my better half is a great cook. I just have to do all the washing up.

Li:

听出来了 better half通常都是丈夫用来说妻子的。I'm sure your wife thinks you are the better half although she may not say it.

Neil:

I hope so.

Li:

Well, just check with your better half and let me know if you are coming on Saturday.

Neil:

I will do, thank you.
