”wet” 比較特殊的中文翻譯

我要以下四個句子的中文翻譯

She can be scornful of those who are not tough in either performance or philosophy, reserving for them her ultimate pejorative, “wet”, which in her lexicon is an accusation of gutlessness.

She had a wet nurse for the infant Elliot.

To Mary that day he looked like a cocky college kid, still wet behind the

ears.

If you think I am for him, you are all wet.

    She can be scornful of those who are not tough in either performance or philosophy, reserving for them her ultimate pejorative, “wet”, which in her lexicon is an accusation of gutlessness.

    她非常輕視那些為人處事不夠強悍的人,她會給予他們最大的蔑視,「懦弱」(wet),在她的詞彙裡,這就是在指控那些沒膽量的人。

    She had a wet nurse for the infant Elliot.

    她為艾略特這個嬰兒找了一位奶媽(wet nurse)。

    *:這個詞是指自己有泌乳而幫別人哺乳的女性,我覺得翻成「乳娘」也可以。

    To Mary that day he looked like a cocky college kid, still wet behind the

    ears.

    對瑪莉來說,那天他就像是個過度自信的小鬼頭,還是很不成熟。

    *:wet hehind the ears,指年輕不成熟,缺乏經驗的意思。

    If you think I am for him, you are all wet.

    如果你覺得我是為了他,那你就完全錯了。

    *:"all wet"大約等於completely wrong
