Obama在Fb上面的留言,英文問題

Barack Obama: Together, we are helping to make New Orleans a place that stands for what we can do in America. Ultimately, that must be the legacy of Katrina: not one of neglect, but of action; not one of indifference, but of empathy; not of abandonment, but of a community working together to meet shared challenges.

文章裡面有很多的 not one of... but of....

也有很多not of...... but of....

這是什麼意思?

    Ultimately, that must be the legacy of Katrina: not one of neglect, but of action; not one of indifference, but of empathy; not of abandonment, but of a community working together to meet shared challenges.

    the legacy of Katrina這個名詞片語後面用了一個冒號,表示後面是它的同位語.同位語之中用了分號(;),表示是平行對等.即有三組同位語,這是演說與寫作時用來強調的方式.

    one = the legacy of Katrina

    of neglet, of action, of indifference, of empathy, of abandonment, of a community 都是介系詞片語

    可視為The legacy of Katrina is not a legacy of neglect, but it is a legacy of action.這個結構的不斷重複.

    中間相同的用語,因可以意會,而略去.只留下原來當主詞補語的介系詞片語和關鍵的字.

    從Katrina風災事件我們所得到的經驗不是xxx的經驗,而是xxx的經驗

    在本句之中,legacy = something such as a tradition or problem that exists as a result of something that happened in the past=從過去的事件,我們所得到的經驗
