    [片語] 徹底地..

    例如:

    This is a bad law and the government should remove it root and branch.

    這項法案太糟了,政府應將其徹底廢除。 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    root (植物)根

    branch (植物)分枝 或 分部 分店

    root-and-branch 為連根拔起; 全面地 徹底地....

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    英文解釋:

    root-and-branch (formal)

    if something is changed or removed root and branch, it is changed or removed completely because it is bad. These proposals amount to a root-and-branch reform of the system. (always before noun)
