    馬來膜 = 馬來貘, or they are different?

    2014-09-26 13:39:01 補充:

    1. 馬來膜 = malayan tapir

    2. 他喜歡搞自拍 = He like to take selfies

    3. 自拍 = selfie

    4. 他的車子有裝行車紀錄器 = his car is equipped with event data recorder (EDR)

    5. 他有在練合氣道 = he has practiced Aikido

    6. 漸凍人 = Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

    7. 他有小腿有靜脈曲張的問題 = he has varices in his calf (or lower leg)

    8. 心電圖 = electrocardiography (ECG or EKG)

    他有在練合氣道 = he has practiced Aikido ==> he has been practicing Aikido

    Sometimes, translating directly from Chinese without thinking in English can be problem, like I have committed in the above two corrections.

    2014-09-27 08:31:51 補充:

    Using "He practices Aikido" can ONLY indicate present time, it does't indicate the past. However, the Chinese statement "他有在練合氣道" DOES including the past. Hence, using "He has been practicing Aikido" will do the trick.

    2014-09-27 08:33:25 補充:

    Present progressive tense tells people the action started in the past and continues into the present time.

    Just saw another mistake:

    2. 他喜歡搞自拍 = He like to take selfies

    ==> He likes to take selfies

    selfie(s) is a new word invented in this century, as said invented by an Australian. Traditional word is self-portrait photograph.

    2014-09-27 06:17:32 補充:

    he has practiced Aikido.

    You can just say "He practices Aikido." since he is still practicing Aikido.

    Yes, you are right. I meant"馬來貘", which is a kind of animal. ^^
