“断断续续”,或“时断时续”,意思是时而中断,时而继续地接连下去(continue from time to time)。与英文惯用语“fits and starts”意思相近,表示“short, inconsistent, and irregular intervals, as of motion or progress;with much stopping and starting”。

 

例句:

我的瘦身运动总是时断时续。
My slimming attempts tend to go in fits and starts.

他们断断续续地完成了这项工作。
They got the job done in fits and starts.

改革进程断断续续地进行着。
The reform process has proceeded in fits and starts.
