a few years shy of 20?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a few years shy of 20?

是什麼意思,尤其標題。

請不要用翻譯機,謝謝。

Update:

不好意思,我沒有看錯,就是不懂才要問。

你到底懂不懂啊…

    如果說錯了請糾正我 可是那不是還差幾年就二十??

    這句話裡的 SHY = SHORT

    差一點的意思

    EXAMPLE..

    I'M 2 YEARS SHY OF 25..

    我還差兩歲就二十 (現在十八!~)

    HE IS 20 BALLETS SHY FROM BEING THE PRESIDENT

    他只差/還差二十票就可以當總統..

    tOMatO說的沒錯 這裏的shy是指short, 差一點的意思~ 和害羞沒有關係. 不信可以查字典~

    "如果我錯了請你指正我,但這不是20歲左右容易害羞的年紀嗎?"

    這是我自己推測的,不知道對不對喔!

    a few years shy of 20

    比20還少了個幾年

    不到20年(但覺對不是19, 應因為 a few years - 是譯説 好幾年

    你有沒有聽錯?

    shy of 20,字面上看起來沒有意義
