Among the presidents with birthdays this month, first of all we have George Washington. What did you learn about him that you included in this book? "Well, He had only one tooth at the inauguration, and I want to put to rest a myth called 'his wooden teeth' He never had wooden teeth. They were dentures, and it passed down to become made out of wood."
这是一段摘字访问节目的话请问里面的I want to put to rest a myth called 'his wooden teeth' He never had wooden teeth. They were dentures, and it passed down to become made out of wood." 是什么意思啊望高人指教谢谢

仅供参考

我想“他的木牙”神话该打住了。他从来就没有木牙。它们是假牙,结果传来传去就成了木制的牙。

我要揭穿有关他的“木牙”的讹传,次论该休矣,他从未用过木牙,他用的是假牙,结果传着传着成了木做的了。

myth没有“神话”的意思,在类似的情况下,它指的是“讹传”,“误区”等等。如很多外国人未接触中国人之前,会觉得中国人很传统,古老,中国这国家很古,建筑也很古,来了之后大不如此,那之前的观念就是一个myth了;而有些中国人可能会觉得英国人很保守,不喜欢跟陌生人交流,伦敦是个雾都,等等,这些其实都是myth.

没错,但这里的神话想必大家也知道此神话,而非彼神话。
总的说来,瑕不掩疵。所以为maxzhy喝彩!
