    violent 是形容詞, 解暴力; outburst 是名詞, 有爆發之意 (如火山爆發).

    兩個字放在一起, 按新聞的意思, 應是指那男小販一怒之下襲擊人.

    pick up ..... apparently?

    pick up 解拾起某東西之外, 也可解接. 女小販被捕後, 找男的接兒子.

    apparently 可解顯然是, 但也可解似乎是!

    在新聞報導中, 有時為了做到中立客觀, 便會加上 apparently 這些字來表示一些尚未確實的消息. 因此, 上文的 apparently 是指似乎他是從地下拾起刀來襲擊人的, 但未經證實.

    以下是 cambridge dict. 的解釋:

    apparently Show phonetics


    1 used to say you have read or been told something although you are not certain it is true:

    Apparently it's going to rain today.

    Apparently he's had enough of England and is going back to Australia.

    Apparently (means Clearly here), the word {apparently} in the news report means {it seems}, not 明顯地 or 顯然.
