语言点滴 Language Tips

  中国有一个成语“滥竽充数”就是出自这个故事。“滥”指不切实际;“竽”是古代一种竹子制成的吹奏乐器。这个成语比喻没有本事的人混在有真才实学的人里面充数,或以次充好。

Chinese idiom,“滥竽充数”(Be there just to make up the number), comes from this story, in which “滥”means unpractical and“竽”is a musical instrument made of bamboos. This idiom is used to mock someone who passes for a specialist.
