    所謂"跳 tone", 就是與原來的感覺或格調不相同或不搭嘎, 英文可用out of tone來表達.

    這樣搭配顏色很 "跳 tone"

    Such a color collocation looks way out of tone.

    Such a color collocation goes quite beyond association.

    "跳tone"未必是一個瑕疵, 也可能是刻意營造的效果, 所以我覺得不宜用表示瑕疵的負面形容詞awkward, mismatching, incoherent, inharmonious, discordant等來表達.

    "跳tone"是中文的slang, 帶一點幽默口吻, 如用在正式場合並不是當.

    他是借自音樂領域的突兀音色(tone)或音調(tune), 例如原本是輕柔和諧的合唱, 突然

    出現一小段尖銳油滑的唱腔, 就是"跳tone",

    面形容詞awkward, mismatching, incoherent, inharmonious, discordant等來表達.

    "跳tone"借喻的字詞就是tone, 所以用out of tone或off tone應較能表達.

    從音樂借喻到色彩, 甚至借喻到一般事物的調性突然變化, 都可使用"跳tone"這個流行俚語.

    我會翻成:color hopping。

    My dear DSG master, thank;s for this link.

    After clicking, I found the response there is for Chinese only.

    Nevertheless, the word I prefer to learn is for English.

    Per my personal idea, I think "跳 tone" is using the color contrast to show up the main subject.

    Like the background is black, but we put a red or white color in the central, then the central portion would be spotted like highlighted.

    so, in one word, 跳 tone is good for expression ?

    2013-01-25 10:55:51 補充:

    Good day Pastor,

    How come you use one leg to hop ?

    Two leg's jump will be farther.

    羅莉大師的說法, 不才深表認同。

    跳 tone 一辭並沒有負面的意思, 而是一種突兀表現的手法。

    Sorry! I thought you want to know the Chinese meaning, and I am not able to type Chinese, so I found a link for you.

    To me,

    if it is used to describe color, "inharmonious" might be acceptable.

    if it is used to describe sound, "discordant" is a possible way to express.

    2013-01-24 13:23:41 補充:

    if it is to describe someone's speech, you can use "incoherence".

    I think, to use English to describe "跳 tone", it will depend upon the situation.

    2013-01-24 13:51:42 補充:

    Of course, these English words are not as "attractive" as "跳 tone". After all, "跳 tone" takes the advantage of both languages.
