今天我们要学的词是 Pent-up. Pent-up is spelled P-E-N-T-hyphen-U-P, pent-up.
pent-up 的意思是积压的，压抑的。 The CEO of Minneapolis-based Target, a retailer hit hard by angry protesters, said the death of George Floyd while detained by police officers unleashed the "pent-up pain of years." 总部位于明尼阿波利斯市的塔吉特百货公司的零售店在愤怒的抗议中遭受沉重打击。该公司首席执行官说，乔治·弗洛伊德在被警察拘留时死亡使得“多年积压的痛苦”爆发出来。
