    Senate floor 參議院議堂發言講台 (區)

    Sen. McConnell delivered a speech on the Senate floor ...

    = Sen. McConnell delivered a Senate floor speech...

    = Sen. McConnell delivered a floor speech...


    翻譯時說參議員McConnell 在議堂演說即可,不用聲明在講堂.因為要發言得上台.

    McConnell is a senator. He makes speech on the Senate floor, not on the House floor.

    floor = the area where senators conduct formal meetings.

    When a Member of Congress is given time to formally express an opinion or make a statement on an issue before the House, they are said to have the 'floor' of the House, and their views are referred to as a 'Floor Speech'.

    Senate跟House都有其floor,當然不論是參議員或眾議員各自在其議會發表的演說,都可稱之為floor speech. 原題是描述參議員發表演說,Adam所引例子只是剛好以House舉例,聰明的網友應不致誤會。
