Vocabulary Introduction:

  • 該 (gāi): “should” or “ought to”
  • 配合 (pèihé): “cooperate” or “coordinate”
  • 你 (nǐ): “you”
  • 演出 (yǎnchū): “perform” or “act out”
  • 的 (de): a possessive or descriptive particle
  • 我 (wǒ): “I” or “me”
  • 演视而不见 (yǎn shì ér bù jiàn): a set phrase meaning “pretend not to see,” with 演视 (yǎn shì) meaning “pretend” and 不见 (bù jiàn) meaning “not see”

Grammar and Structure:

  • The sentence begins with the subject “我” followed by the verb phrase “該配合你演出,” which expresses an obligation or expectation to cooperate or go along with someone else’s actions.
  • “的” connects the verb phrase to the subject “我,” attributing the action of cooperating to the speaker.
  • “演视而不见” is a compound verb that describes a deliberate action of ignoring or pretending not to notice something.

Translation and Meaning:

  • A direct translation would be “I who should cooperate with your performance, act as if not seeing.”
  • A natural English translation is “I, who should play along with you, pretend not to see.”

Conveying Nuance:

  • The phrase suggests that the speaker is expected to go along with something but chooses to ignore it instead.
  • The use of “演视而不见” implies an intentional disregard, which is a form of subtle protest or dissociation from the act being performed.
