  • 關於學測和指考重考,以及兵役問題

    我目前實歲23,剛升研究所,想重考學測和指考。

    那我能否明年考完學測或指考,等成績出來後,如果有上理想科系,研究所就休學不唸,去讀大學?

    或者考上後必須保留學籍先去當兵,才能回來繼續讀大學?

    抑或者我必須研究所休學才能考學測指考?

  • 關於師資培育及教育學程的疑問

    想請問一下,如果在一所有開中等學校師資培育的大學就讀,並已推上該校研究所,但想修的教師類科和本系就讀毫無關係,那可以透過考上師培後,於研究所期間下修補足所要任教科系的學分,同時修讀教育學程,並於研究所畢業時取得教師資格嗎?

    或是必須一開始就具備所要任教科目的雙主修或輔系資格,才有資格考師培?

    例如:就讀該校數學系,推上數學所,有沒有資格參與師培考試,選擇英語類科,並在研究所期間下修英語系課程,補足專業科目學分?

  • all these的意思

    Even though I love my family, they have all these annoying habits that drive me bonkers.

    What’s wrong with her today? She’s had all these emotion swings like all day long. I’m gonna quit man!

    all these在這邊是單純加強語氣嗎?怎麼翻譯?有沒有其他類似用法(像all those之類的)?

  • 世界地區歷史年表的讀法

    我拿到一張世界地區簡易年表,可是有好幾處看不太懂

    第一張

    第二張

    問題一:

    這種年表中的斜線代表什麼意思?像是最左邊的日本,繩文時代從450年撇到350年代表什麼?

    還有西亞下面的帕提亞和敘利亞的塞琉古王朝,中間的分界線怎麼不用垂直,一樣要用斜線?

    問題二:

    年表裡面有些空空的是什麼意思?例如西亞的巴比倫尼亞王國和亞述中間空了一個長方形沒寫東西的代表什麼?

    朝鮮的北韓和韓國上面的灰色、拜占庭帝國和羅姆賽爾柱帝國中間的粉紅色、西羅馬帝國和法蘭克王國中間的灰色、東德和西德上方的灰色,這些沒標示的各是代表什麼?為什麼不標?

  • 英英字典上(also xx)的意思

    英英字典常常在詞條一開始就寫說(also xxx),請問這該如何理解?

    1. 例如我查slacken,跑出下列解釋:

    1 ( also slacken off ) to gradually become slower, weaker, less active etc, or to make something do this : The heavy rain showed no signs of slackening off.

    這是在說slacken有個片語叫做slacken off,括號後面則是對括號內片語的解釋?造句也是為slacken off而造,所以上面例句不能off拿掉,只寫slackening?

    2. 我查tube的時候,跑出下列解釋:

    underground railway 6 ( also The Tube™ ) [ singular ] ( BrE ) the underground railway system in London

    a tube station/train

    We came by tube .

    She caught the wrong tube (= tube train) .

    這是在說有個詞組叫做The Tube,而且是倫敦地下鐵的意思?那下面例句的tube都是指倫敦地下鐵還是一般的地鐵?

  • in the sense that的意思

    我在文章上看到下面這句:

    From living there and talking to people, I’ve definitely realized that mainland China is less open than Taiwan. Both have a problem in the sense that there’s not a lot of sex education.

    in the sense that 可以用 ;that is, 代替嗎?

    這組字詞還有什麼其他用法嗎?

  • phone、handset、telephone的關聯

    我在查handset時看到下面資料

    http://www.phonegeeks.com/whdibeheandh.html

    裡面說handset是電話的聽筒和送話器兩部分合稱,可是我查中文的翻譯,都是翻做:電話聽筒、手機

    1. 我不太懂的是,只翻成聽筒不就忽略了送話器這一部分嗎?中文該如何翻譯比較好?

    2. 我用朗文字典查phone的意思時跑出這解釋:

    the part of a telephone into which you speak SYN receiver :

    「the part of a telephone into which you speak」 這部分不是 transmitter嗎?為什麼字典後面又加註等同receiver?

    3. 我又用朗文字典查receiver的意思,跑出下面解釋:

    telephone the part of a telephone that you hold next to your mouth and ear → handset

    查到這邊已經混亂了,所以普通老外是把receiver、telephone、cell phone、handset這四個意思全部劃上等號嗎?

    4. 我查了Longman、Macmillan和Cambridge字典,對於phone的解釋都是a telephone,可是我記得看過有人說cell phone也可以簡稱phone,這邊該如何理解?

    5. phone的詞條下面都有put the phone down(掛斷電話),其中的phone也都是telephone,那如果我要掛斷的是cell phone要怎麼說?

  • 形容詞子句與分詞片語

    我在某研究所英文試題看到這題:

    The man ________ the window wants to see you.

    (A) breaking (B) breaks (C) who broke (D) is breaking

    選C沒問題,因為按語意是已經打破,用過去式;但是為什麼不能選A?形容詞子句簡化成分詞片語後,因為是主動打破所以用現在分詞breaking有錯嗎˙˙?

  • 英文over的用法解釋

    The government’s budget deficit is the excess of government purchases of goods and services over its net taxes.

    Increasing Rate of GDP over the Previous Year (%)

    這兩個裡面的over意思一樣嗎?我想翻成"相比於",可是好像太籠統,查英英字典解釋,感覺意思好像是more than?所以這兩個over都可以用more than替換嗎?

  • 塔羅牌四個記號的起源

    我看到書上說,凱爾特神話中的達努神族有四樣寶物,寶劍、魔鍋、魔槍、命運之石,分別演變成撲克牌的黑桃、紅心、梅花、方塊

    我的疑惑是:

    1. 塔羅牌不是源自埃及嗎?怎麼和凱爾特神話扯上關係?

    2. 為什麼那四樣寶物撲克牌要用黑桃、紅心、梅花、方塊來替代?

  • 想請教英文使役動詞的用法

    問題一:

    People there_____ the grasshoppers and scorpions roasted, fried, and spiced.

    (A) make (B ) let (C) allow (D) have

    A和D不是都有使的意思嗎?為什麼只能選D不能選A?

    問題二:

    make / have + O (自己不會動作) + p.p / not p.p

    let + O (自己不會動作) + be p.p / not be p.p

    如果是其他像是allow、permit、want之類的動詞,後面一樣接 O (自己不會動作) ,那是接to be p.p、be p.p 還是p.p?

  • as well as Ving ?

    Thomas was a real friend, for he advised me as well as helping me with my Arabic. (TOEFL)

    這是我在<英語常見問題大詞典> 趙振才著 上看到的題目,解答說as well as,如同and, or一樣,具對等連接詞的作用,所以這裡要把helping改成helped。

    但該書在前一頁才說了:

    He publishes the books, as well as printing them.

    as well as意義相當於in addition to、besides,視為介係詞所以後接Ving。

    Q1:既然這樣那開頭那題何不用介係詞解釋?

    書中另外舉了一個例句

    Television is another major instrument of communication, permitting us to see as well as to hear the performer.

    該書同樣把as well as解讀成連接詞。

    但我查閱了賀氏英文法,書中表明as well as可以接名詞、形容詞、介片,但若要接動詞,就要改成Ving。

    Q2:到底as well as碰到動詞的時候要如何處理? 當連接詞,前後對等;還是當介系詞,後面一律Ving?

  • chatter of you

    我在書上看到這句:

    Whoever chatters to you will chatter of you.

    我覺得後半chatter of you怪怪的,字典裡查不到動詞的chatter後面接of,這裡不是應該用about嗎?還是這裡的用法是約定成俗?

  • last 最後一次;上一次

    我一直以為the last N 譯作最後一次;last N 譯作上一次

    但是我在書上看到一個例句:

    None of the rumor were founded, but they brought about his defeat in the last election.

    (那些謠言,其中沒有一個是有根據的,導致他在上次選舉中的失敗。)

    那以有無the區分是"上一次"還是"最後一次"這說法正確嗎?還是只能從前後語意?
