注释
When a Southerner favors a relative, he or she is not giving that person special privileges; rather, the Southerner looks like that relative. Favor can be either transitive— She favors her father — or intransitive with a compound subject: She and her father favor. This sense of favor goes back to early modern English: “This young lord Chamont/Favors my mother” (Ben Jonson). The verb derives from the noun favor, which was used from the 15th to the 19th century to mean “appearance, aspect; the countenance, face”: “What makes thy favor like the bloodless head/Fall'n on the block?” (Tennyson). This sense of the noun is now archaic, but the verb thrives in the English of the Southern United States.
当一个南方人favors 一个亲属, 他(或她)不是给这个人特权;而是这个南方人长得像那个亲属。Favor 可以是及物的—— 她像她父亲—— 或不及物的,与复合主语连用: 她和她父亲相象。 Favor 的这种含义可以上溯到早期的现代英语: “这个年轻的贵族像我妈妈” (本·杰森)。这动词来源于名词favor, 在15世纪到19世纪被作为“外貌,样子;面貌,脸部”的意思用:“什么使你的脸毫无血色,脑袋耷拉下来?” (坦尼森)。名词的这一用法现在已经陈旧了,但动词仍在美国南部英语中流行
