1. end Taiwan's 是指...? 為何用end一字? 有何特殊涵義?

2. end Taiwan’s growing 的文法解析.

Update:

Mr Ma’s image was of a clean technocrat.

" was of " 的文法意義是...?

Update 2:

"pro-independence" 是指...?

Update 3:

"print edition" 是指...?

Update 4:

這是英國經濟學人對馬英九的評論內容.

原句內容:

He promised ground-breaking agreements with China to help end Taiwan’s growing economic marginalisation.

marginalisation 後面就沒有任何字,請知悉.

    to help (to) end ...用無to的不定詞help是美國語法,英國語法用有to的不定詞,但在口語裡都不用有to的不定詞(請參閱遠東新世紀英漢辭典p.657 help的說明1d。

    end的意思是[終止]。

    to end Taiwan's growing economic marginalisation = 終止台灣在經濟上的逐漸被邊緣化

    marginalisation是end的受詞,你斷句斷得太早一點了。

    我說你斷句斷得太早是指你不該斷在growing這裡。growing是用來當修飾語的分詞,後面還有另一個修飾語economic,然後才是受到修飾的名詞marginalisation。to end ...這個不定詞片語,應該斷在marginalisation這裡。

    Mr Ma’s image was of a clean technocrat.

    =馬先生以前的形象是一個乾淨的技術官僚。

    pro-independence = 偏獨

    print edition = 印刷版(出書成文字)

    這種用法屬口語用法,----to help (and) end ----,例如:go get it.---go! get it.----go and get it.----
