2.mean

adj.出色的,娴熟的

这个词,作为形容词时,我们平常见到最多的意思是“小气的,吝啬的,卑鄙的”,但是它还有一个感情色彩完全相反的意思“You can use mean in expressions such as 'He plays a mean trumpet' and 'She mixes a mean cocktail' to indicate that someone does something extremely well.”(出色的,娴熟的)

例句:

He is a mean tennis player.

他是一个出色的网球运动员。

这里还要补充一个关于“mean”的熟词生义,“

If someone is being mean, they are being unkind to another person, for example by not allowing them to do something.”(不友好的)
