MELT and THAW
When something melts, it changes from a solid to a liquid state, usually because it is heated:
وقتی از کلمه melt استفاده میکنیم که چیزی جامد به مایع تبدیل شود معمولا به خاطر اینکه به آن گرما میدهیم.
Melt 50 grams of butter in a saucepan and then add the onions and mushrooms.
The snow on our grass melted quickly in the warm sunshine.
We also have the phrasal verbs melt away and melt (away) into meaning to disappear:
کلمهmelt awayرا با کلمهmeltاشتباه نگیرید که به معنای نا پدید شدن می باشد.
At first they were enemies, but over time their differences melted away.
The shoplifters just melted (away) into the Oxford Street crowds of Christmas shoppers.
When something thaws it warms up slowly and changes gradually from a frozen state to a temperature above freezing point:
وقتی از کلمه thaw استفاده میکنیم که چیزی جامد یواش یواش به مایع تبدیل شود (نه بر اثر گرمایی که ما به جسم جامد می دهیم).
The snow was thawing and the streets had become slushy.
We also have the phrasal verb thaw out, which we use when referring to frozen food or if we have just come inside from very cold weather:
کلمه thaw outرا با کلمهthawاشتباه نگیرید
If I were you, I would take it out of the freezer and leave it to thaw out overnight.
Let me just stand by the radiator and thaw out a bit before I start to cook dinner.
