- Now, Varney, ply thine invention, whose forge hath availed us so often for sure as my name is Dudley, the danger menaced by my horoscope is now darkening around me."
Послушай, Варни, призови на помощь всю свою изобретательность, которая так часто выручала нас; опасность, предсказанная моим гороскопом, сейчас нависла надо мной, — это так же верно, как то, что меня зовут Дадли.

Better carts, perhaps, and better roads for the carts to run on, better plows and a better understanding of how to use the land, better ways of building houses so that peasants need no longer live in noisome huts, better ships to ply the seas.
Лучшие повозки, лучшие дороги, лучшие плуги и лучшее понимание, как использовать землю, лучшие способы постройки домов, чтобы крестьяне не жили больше в скверных хижинах, лучшие корабли.

Chiao Tai came forward and said: 'I heard that a sea captain called Nee also is considered an expert in this field. His ships ply between Canton and Arab ports.'
— До меня дошли слухи, что мореход Ни — также большой златок в этом деле и корабль его ходит между Кантоном и арабскими портами, — выступив вперед, ввернул Чао Тай.

For a few minutes the struggle was intensely critical; for while they still slacked out the tightened line in one direction, and still plied their oars in another, the contending strain threatened to take them under.
Несколько мгновений судьба их висела на волоске, они еще послабляли натянувшийся линь, одновременно изо всех сил работая веслами, и обе эти соперничающие силы, казалось, вот-вот утянут их под воду.

The prefix 'epi' is noncommittal; it neither excludes the metasemiotic point of view nor im plies any commitment to it.
Префикс 'эпи' достаточно эластичен: он не исключает метасемио-тической точки зрения, но и не подразумевает ее.

She never turns her head until she comes to the crossing where Jo plies with his broom.

Soon all the boats but Starbuck's were dropped; all the boat-sails set– all the paddles plying; with rippling swiftness, shooting to leeward
Скоро все вельботы, кроме Старбекова, были спущены; паруса в них поставлены, гребки ударили по воде — и лодки, журча, понеслись по волнам.

This was a rule indeed which only added to the satiric effect of my being plied with the supposition that he might at any moment be among us.
Такое обыкновение на деле только усиливало иронический эффект, когда меня забрасывали предположениями, что он может в любой момент оказаться среди нас.

La Teuse dusted the linen, yellow from long usage, and plied her feather-brush along the shelf against which she set the liturgical altar-cards.
Она обмахнула метелочкой эти порыжевшие от времени пелены и с силой провела ею вдоль ступени, на которую раньше составила футляры с престола.

I have placed him under the charge of Joceline Joliffe, who, betwixt plying him with sack and ghost-stories, would make him incapable of knowing what was done, if you were to proclaim the King in his presence."
Я поручил его Джослайну Джолифу: тот так его напоит и наговорит ему столько сказок о привидениях, что он не поймет, в чем дело, даже если ты в его присутствии провозгласишь реставрацию короля.

At times he could not prevent the loosened springs from giving out a creaking noise, a childlike squeaking which his big fingers, though plied with the utmost gentleness, drew from the disordered mechanism.
Порой от его столика доносился сухой звук сорвавшейся пружины, заикающийся детский лепет, с величайшей осторожностью извлекаемый его толстыми пальцами из расстроенного механизма.

The bus that plies between New Romney and Folkestone is painted a British red, and inscribed on either side with the word Tip-top' in gold amidst voluptuous scrolls.
Омнибус, что курсирует меж Нью-Ромней и Фолкстоном, окрашен в ярко-красный цвет, на боках его изображены ленты с пышной надписью золотыми буквами «Самый скорый».
