    英文的夾注號有兩種:parentheses (圓括號) 與brackets (方括號)

    1.parenthese表示其中的解釋文字或額外補充的字詞重要性較低。(如改用逗號則可強調這些字詞,用破折號則更為強調)。

    如:The population of Philadelphia (now about 1.5 million) has declined since 1950.

    parenthese有時是用來標示順序列清單用的。如(1) (2) (3):

    Outside the Middle East, the countries with the largest oil reserves are (1) Venezuela (63 billion barrels), (2) Russia (57 billion barrels), and (3) Mexico (51 billion barrels).

    2. brackets是用在你修改了引用的文句時(例如,為了配合你的上下文,你改了大小寫或加入你自己的資料),如:

    "[T]he Texaco staton [just outside Chicago] is one of the businest in the nation," said a company spokesperson.

    更正:

    [T]he Texaco station...busiest....

    打錯了兩個字。
