网上有一则像病毒一样流传的英语谜语。

There are three words in the English language that end in -gry. One is hungry and another is angry. What is the third word? Everyone uses this word every day; everyone knows what it means and what it stands for. If you've listened closely, I've already told you what the word is.

意思是,除了Hungry和Angry,你还能想出第三个以-gry结尾的单词吗?

先提示一下,这是一道脑筋急转弯的题目。

......

谜语的答案是"language",关键就在第一句话里"There are three words in the English language that end in -gry.",呵呵,没想到吧?

事实上,英语里除了Hungry和Angry,还真没有第三个以-gry结尾的常用单词。点击这里,你可以看到其他以-gry结尾的单词,因为过于冷僻,我就不一一引述了。

那that end in -gry怎么解释呢??

I really do not understand why the "language" is the third word which end in -gry, could you explain it to me by Email?

确实没有懂,您能解释一下吗?

What are you talking about? can you explain to us in details?

the English language 的第三个单词是language,脑子急转弯

脑筋急转弯

There are three words in the English language that end in -gry.
这一句话是个双关,取前面部分就能发现了。
There are three words in “the English language”

无法理解, 文化差异么....

断句不同即可
就像我们古代的诗词没有标点短句会有不同的意思

There are three words in the English language 【.】
that end in -gry【,】 One is hungry and another is angry.
在【】中断句
第二行的that 勉强当which用
翻译过来就是 这里有三个单词在。。中。以gry结尾的,一个是。。再一个是
所以第三个单词没要求gry结尾

脑筋急转弯
