Polozov ate slowly, 'with feeling, with judgment, with deliberation,' bending attentively over his plate, and sniffing at almost every morsel. First he rinsed his mouth with wine, then swallowed it and smacked his lips....
Полозов ел медленно, "с чувством, с толком с расстановкой внимательно наклоняясь над тарелкой,нюхая чуть не каждый кусок; сперва пополощет себе рот вином, потом уже проглотит и губами пошлепает.

Raskolnikov sipped the glass, put a morsel of bread in his mouth and, suddenly looking at Zametov, seemed to remember everything and pulled himself together. At the same moment his face resumed its original mocking expression.
-- Раскольников глотнул из стакана, положил в рот кусочек хлеба и вдруг, посмотрев на Заметова, казалось, все припомнил и как будто встряхнулся: лицо его приняло в ту же минуту первоначальное насмешливое выражение.

"You will know in time," said Varney; - "and then this other banquet - but thou wilt esteem Her too choice a morsel for the fiend's tooth - she must have her psalms, and harps, and seraphs."

"Ah, that is human nature, Sergeant! pure, unadulterated Scotch human nature. A cake, man, to say the truth, is an agreeable morsel, and I often see the time when I pine for a bite myself."
— Ничего не попишешь, сержант, такова человеческая натура — чистокровная шотландская человеческая натура Овсяная лепешка, по правде сказать, ни с каким хлебом не сравнится, я сам сплю и вижу, как бы отведать кусочек.

I cannot think he would grudge a poor gentleman, who follows him faithfully, his hour of sport and his morsel of game, more especially when other food is hard enough to come by."
Я не думаю, чтобы он сердился на бедного джентльмена, его верного соратника, если тот в свободное время добудет себе немного дичи, в особенности когда другой пищи и не достанешь.
