Examples from texts

He had not seen a sign of his horse since riding over the bluff he hoped it had swum out of the river safely but he was more used to walking than riding anyway, and his boots were stout and well soled.
С тех пор как его лошадь скакнула с обрыва, юноша ее не видел; он надеялся, что она благополучно переплыла реку, - ну и ладно, он все равно больше привычен к ходьбе пешком, чем к скачке верхом, а сапоги у него крепкие и с хорошими подметками.

– Паспорт поддельный, – сказал он, – а на самом деле я вот кто, – и он перебросил через стол визитную карточку. Пуаро долго изучал карточку, и мсье Бук в нетерпении заглянул через плечо.

The memory of my last session with my Comforter-a time so civilized it seemed to belong to a different planet-flashed through my head. Melanie challenging me to have her removed, a seemingly suicidal impulse, but only a bluff.
Мелькнуло воспоминание о последней встрече с Утешительницей – это было словно на другой планете… Самоубийственная с виду попытка Мелани настоять на том, чтобы я отказалась от этого тела – блеф, но весьма эффективный.

His little house could be seen a long way off; it stood out on a bare place, half a mile from the village, on the 'bluff,' as it is called, like a hawk on a ploughed field.
Издали виднелся небольшой его домик; он торчал на голом месте, в полуверсте от деревни, как говорится, «на юру», словно ястреб на пашне.

These kids, he says, taking a bluff tone as if they are making small talk in public instead of enjoying this stolen intimacy behind drawn shades in Arrowdale, they break your heart.
— Ох уж эти дети, — говорит он наигранным тоном, будто бы и впрямь позабыв, что они не на светском рауте, а один на один друг с другом после долгой разлуки, за предусмотрительно опущенными жалюзи, и времени у них в обрез, — одно расстройство с ними.
