“门可罗雀”,字面意思是“大门之前可以张起网来捕麻雀(birds can be caught by a net at the door)”,“罗”做动词表示“张网捕捉(catch birds with a net)”,“门可罗雀”用来形容十分冷落,宾客稀少(visitors are few and far between,having few visitors)。

 

例句:

展厅门可罗雀,开发商已经开始降低价格。
Showrooms are empty and developers have already started cutting prices.

地震过后这个景点门可罗雀。
Visitors are few and far between in this scenic spot after the earthquake.
