    1. 請問下面句子裡的that said是什麼意思?

    "At the moment, the coffee grounds from one medium cup of coffee can make about two shirts. Each shirt also requires about eight recycled bottles. That said, research is underway to develop a process that will make the coffee fibers longer. Answer: That said, 放在句首就等同 However, …轉折語的口氣,表示 「然而、但是」。該用法在2002年開始流行,用來取代However, 其它類似的用法還有 -- having said that, that having been said, 等等。 所以原句一開始在說「較正面的訊息」:一中杯咖啡所使用的研磨咖啡量,就可製成兩件襯衫…,接著話鋒一轉,轉成相對「較負面的資訊」:但是,如何能把咖啡纖維弄得更長的處理過程,研發「卻」仍在進行中。 延伸閱讀http://www.nytimes.com/2002/06/23/magazine/the-way...

    "head over to" 裡的over在語氣或語感上該怎麼翻譯?

    Answer:

    to head for + 目的地:指「前往某個目的地」

    to head over to + 目的地:較強調「從出發地這一邊,到達目的地那一端」。

    因為over(在此當副詞用,和動詞連用),在此指“from one side of Sth to the other side”,後面再加個to:指到哪個目的地,例如:

    I took her over to the hospital because she had a high fever.

    We flew over to the States to visit my aunt.

    The hikers passed over that steep hill to a remote village.

    He stood up and walked over to the window.

    I’ve invited Lucia to come over to my house.
