Trivial refers principally to what is so insignificant as to be utterly commonplace or unremarkable:
Trivial 主要指那些极其无关紧要的因此完全不值得注意或是十分平凡的东西:
“I think all Christians . . . agree in the essential articles, and that their differences are trivial, and rather political than religious” (Samuel Johnson). Something trifling is so unimportant or so small as to be scarcely worth notice:
“我认为所有的基督徒…在主要问题上的意见是一致的,而他们的分歧都是不重要的,而且往往是政治方面的而非宗教方面的” (塞缪尔·约翰逊)。trifling 指的是某物太小或太不重要以致于几乎不值得注意:
“I regret the trifling narrow contracted education of the females of my own country” (Abigail Adams).
“我对于自己国家给予女性的微不足道的、狭隘的、有限的教育表示遗憾” (阿比盖尔·亚当斯)。

(4)

Paltry especially describes what falls so far short of what is required or desired that it arouses contempt:
Paltry 尤其用来形容那些完全没有达到要求的或希望的标准而引起鄙视的情绪的:
“He . . . considered the prize too paltry for the lives it must cost” (John Lothrop Motley).
“他…认为奖金与它所夺去的生命相比太微不足道了” (约翰·洛斯罗浦·莫特莱)。

(5)

Petty can refer to what is of minor or secondary significance or size; the term can suggest meanness of spirit:
Petty 可以指那些重要性或大小是较小或第二位的东西;这个词也会令人想起精神上的偏狭或小气:
“Our knights are limited to petty enterprises” (Sir Walter Scott).
“我们的骑士被局限于琐碎的事业” (华尔特·司各特爵士)。
“Always give your best, never get discouraged, never be petty” (Richard M. Nixon). What is picayune is of negligible value or importance:
“永远奉献出你最好的,绝不灰心,绝不吝啬” (理查德·N·尼克森)。picayune 的东西是微不足道的或不值一提的:
Giving a police officer a free meal may be against the law, but it seems to be a picayune infraction.
给一位警官提供一顿免费的饭食或许违反了法律,但这看上去是不值一提的违法。

注释
Trivial Pursuit is an etymologically sound name, because roads and traveling, which might involve pursuit, are involved in the origin of the word trivial. The history of trivial begins with the Latin word trivium, formed from the prefix tri-, “consisting of three of the things named,” and via, “road.” Trivium meant “the meeting place of three roads, especially as a place of public resort.” Hence it also had a pejorative sense, which we express by the phrase the gutter, as in “His manners were formed in the gutter.” The adjective trivi3, derived from trivium, meant “appropriate to the street corner, commonplace, vulgar.” Trivial entered Middle English in senses that need not detain us here, first being recorded in a sense identical to that of trivi3s in 1589. Shortly after that trivial is recorded in the sense most familiar to us, “of little importance or significance.”
Trivial Pursuit 从词源学的角度来看是合理的词, 因为可能涉及到追求的道路和旅行都与trivial 这个词的来源有关。 trivial 的历史从拉丁词 trivium 开始, 由前缀tri- 意思是“由三个给定的东西组成的”和 via “道路”构成。 Trivium 的意思是“三条路交汇的地方,尤指公众常去的地方”。 自此它又有了一层带贬意的意思,我们用短语贫民区里的 来表示这层意思, 如在句子”他的礼仪是在贫民区学成的”。从trivium 派生出来的形容词 trvialis 意思为“用于街道角落的,平凡的,粗俗的”。 Trvial 进入了中古英语, 当时的意思不会使我们停止不前。最早的记录是在1589年,意思与trivialis 相同。 不久以后,trivial 的意思变得与我们更接近了, 即“琐碎的,不重要的或无价值的”
