    fly 您好, 在下提供以下資料給您参考一下

    原文

    The danger comes when concerns are amplified or imagined, and hitched to Mahanite prescriptions. (註1)

    譯文

    當顧慮被誇大或想像出來後﹐再套用馬漢的解決方法﹐危機便來臨了。

    hitched to﹕hitch 原義是鉤住﹐拴住﹐套住等意思。這裡譯為「套用」

    Mahanite﹕形容詞用法﹐指跟美國海軍軍官 Alfred Thayer Mahan (阿爾弗雷德‧賽耶‧馬漢) 有關﹐暫譯為「馬漢的」

    prescriptions﹕原義是處方﹐這裡引申為解決方法的意思

    > 什麼是hitched to ?

    句子裡 hitched to 後面接上 Mahanite prescriptions﹐是及物動詞用法

    hitch + to 是 hitch 的及物動詞第一個用法

    原義是鉤住﹐拴住﹐套住等意思。

    視乎場合可譯為「套上」「套用」等意思

    hitch

    vt. (及物動詞 transitive verb) (註2)

    The danger comes when concerns are amplified or imagined, and hitched to Mahanite prescriptions.

    這份危機來自於當這些安全顧慮逐漸擴大或逐漸明朗化, 而且按照 Mahan 所預測的路線走.

    hitch to 在這裡的意思比較類似於 connect to, hook to.
