“以牙还牙”,意思是用牙咬来对付牙咬,比喻用对方使用的手段来回击对方,以同样的方式报复,常与“以眼还眼”连用。可以翻译为“engage in a tit for tat”,英文习语“tit for tat”表示“a situation in which you do something to harm someone who has done something harmful to you”。

 

例句:

zhè zhǒng yǐ yá huán yá de bào fù hái yào chí xù duō cháng shí jiān
这种以牙还牙的报复还要持续多长时间?
How much longer is this tit for tat going to last?
