Standard 版块Q&A

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

这个栏目太好了!找到交流、请教的地方了。

 

我今天发下面这个帖子时,此栏目还没开呢。普特改版,大力支持!

 

播音员也时有口误。如2008-02-27的VOA News,Frances Alonzo将"genital mutilation"中的mutilation读作mitulation。这是个生词,她又读错了,因此,怎么也听不出来。还是看了别人的听写稿才算学会了这个单词和词组。原来就是“割礼”。这样的学习,记得牢固。下次再听到很难逃过我的耳朵了。

请填个空!

这是昨天VOA NEWS中的一段:

 

The information may help shed light on the fate of some of the 8,000 Americans still missing or unaccounted for from the Kerean War.

 

这些档案有助于搞清在战争中失踪或( )的美国人的下落。

 

请问unaccounted for在文中怎样理解?

这里应办成自助餐厅

我理解、盼望“Q&A馆”应当是学员学习、交流、答疑、解惑的地方,这里学术气氛应当浓厚一点。好多新鲜词语都是先出现在新闻里,大家耳熟能详之后,才能上词典。想前边版主解释I Report,真是解渴。这里的“自助餐”真是物美价廉!

到当日的“Standard听力训练”栏目下载,很方便的。不过VOA的可能稍晚一点。

关于Esquire

今天听20080313VOA,遇到几个单词,很有意思:

 

simultaneous 开始没有听出来,原来是第一个音节,美音、英音发音不同。

 

Esquire Magazine 是一本杂志,中文是《绅士》。最近一期发表了The Man Between War and Peace一文。美军负责中东事务的中央司令部司令——海军上将法伦辞职了,他可是经布什总统提名,五角大楼去年刚刚换的马。

 

frozen assets 就是“冻结资产”了,后面这个词常用复数。

 

听友中高手众多,有的近乎完美,想挑点错都难。普特真是个练习听力的好地方!我昨天听写了一篇,版主还给加了听力分。今后更得努力了。

 

求教:It was around Lupane, that some of the worst excesses of Mr.Mugabe's army took place in early 1980s when thousands of opposition supporters were killed by the North Korean-trained 5th Brigade. 一句,怎么翻译?excesses在文中作何解?

举一反三

Comptroller General <美>总审计长

 

 而Attorney General 首席检察官, <美>司法部长

 

这样的职务名称是一回生,二回熟。看看前人总结的帖子很有帮助。

 

我觉得这是新闻英语的一大难点。人名、地名不一定死记硬背,但像上面这样的专有名词还是应当看得懂,听得出。

能否支持图片上传?

我刚刚尝试上传图片,均未成功。原来将上传附件的大小限制在1Kb,实际上是不支持图片。哪有那么小的图片呢?未改版是是可以上传的,而现在只能使用链接。能否继续支持?

 

另外,请教一个问题:怎样在发帖中使用国际音标?

实现无障碍英语沟通

去“Special 听力训练”中去找吧,那里有AP News, All-In-1-Min,等,AP News还有视频和汉译。

关于 rosettes

20080318的VOA News:

 

Members of the party of the late former Prime Minister Benazir Butto took their seats in the National Assembly wearing rosettes picturing their slain leader.

 

标红处译为“佩戴装饰玫瑰花环的被刺领导人像章”行吗?我看到网上有一张照片(可惜这里贴不上去),就看图识字了。

好栏目推荐之美国口语俚语

这里人气不旺啊!

在standard版块开这个栏目创意很不错。可能是刚刚开始,人气不旺。没有做到“有问必答”,我前面的两个问题都没人回答。希望斑竹想想办法,包括在其它栏目做个链接,相信会受到听友的欢迎的。

回复 68# 的帖子

看到照片了(用google搜的),人民党的国会议员在胸前佩戴着这样的rosette,不过中间镶嵌着Benazir Butto 的像。google的图片搜索真是太好了。看图识字学英语,文字、声音加图像。加深记忆效果好,听友不妨试一试。

铡草没巧法,抬高使劲压!

过去农村里喂牲口的草要用铡刀铡。有人请教老农铡草的诀窍,老农回答“铡草没巧法,抬高使劲压!”

 

学英语,练听力又何尝不是如此呢?我两年多以前(大家看我的注册时间:2005-12-26)开始练习听力。自己的听写稿(少数)和根据听友的听写稿自己整理的Transcript(多数)已经积累了一尺多高了。下面分别是我2007年全年、今年2月和这个月某天的VOA News的听写稿的照片(由于没有发照片的权限,请zpc224斑竹帮忙贴上去):

 

 

 

刚开始时:在“Special English听力训练”里,10分钟慢速新闻,只能听出20%, 听American Mosaic, The Making of A Nating, American Stories像听天书。听了不到一年的新闻,你猜怎么着?我总觉得播音员读得慢,不解渴,就及时转到“Standard English听力训练”的5分钟新闻了。结果又是只能听懂20 %。总怀疑老美平时说话是不是这样快。又听了一年多,觉得语速可以接受了,能听出个数了。按行话说是有了点语感了,能听懂80% —90%了,听不懂的往往是生词,多数是人名、地名。每天是killed, wounded, injured……,Pakistan,Iraq, Iran, Afghan, Kenya……,觉得内容有点枯燥,又跃跃欲试,想改听NPR了。

 

听VOA News,常常看看报纸上的国际新闻确实很有帮助。如:merchant death(死亡贩子), U.S. Central Command(美军中央司令部,负责中东事务), judiciary and enforcement officials(司法和执法部门的官员, Bear Stearns company(贝尔斯登公司), JP Morgan Chase(摩根大通银行), "the right to bear arms"(美国宪法第二修正案中的“持枪权”), the Olimpic torch relay(奥运火炬传递活动), streamlining the bloated bureaucracy(精简臃肿的机构), sovereignty and territorial integrity(主权和领土完整), Middle East roadmap to peace(中东和平路线图)……不一而足。将这些常用的expressions熟记于心,听起来自然省力了。

 

常见刚刚进来的听友请教学习方法,还是把老农那句话送给他们: 铡草没巧法,抬高使劲压!

今天VOA News的一条新闻, 请指正

Turkish riot police fought Kurtish protestors for a sencond day Saturday as Kurdish new-year's celebrations deteriorated into democrations in favor of separatist rebels. Turkish police were called to the scene in the city of Van in southeastern Turkey. Large groups of protestors're seen hurling stones at police there. Authorities responsed by hitting demonstrates with batons and firing tear gas to disperse the crowd of about 3000 people gathered in that city of Van. The state running Anatolia News Agency says at least 60 people were injured including police officers and many protestors were detained. Clashes also took place in other citys in southeastern Turkey.

 

库尔德新年庆祝活动转变成分离主义者支持的示威活动,土耳其防暴警察与库尔德抗议者的对抗已进入第二天。土耳其警察应召到土耳其南部城市Van城的现场。在Van城,大批抗议者向警察投掷石块,而当局用警棍和催泪瓦斯驱散了大约3000人。国营的土耳其通讯社说,包括警察在内至少有60人受伤,许多抗议者被拘捕。其它土耳其南部城市也发生了暴乱。

春天来了,请大家听几只歌吧!

听歌曲学英语倒是很轻松的。请听友在这明媚的春天里,听几首歌, 放松一下心情吧。下载今天的“Special English听力训练”的20080324FEATURE.mp3就行了:

 

I Dream Of Spring  

 

She arrives like autumn in a rainstorm

The threat of thunder above

I'll return from the streets of Melbourne

I'll return my love

 

This is world is filled with frozen lovers

The sheets of their beds are frightfully cold

And I've slept there in the snow with others

Yet loved no others before

 

These cold dark places

Places I've been

In cold dark places

I dream of spring

 

This world is filled *with* frozen lovers

The sheets of their beds are frightfully cold

And I've slept there in the snow with others

Yet loved no others before

 

These cold darks places

Places I've been

In cold dark places

I dream of spring

 

In cold dark places

I dream of spring 

 

Spring Is Here   

 

Once there was a thing called spring

When the world was writing verses like yours and mine,

All the lads and girls would sing

When we sat at little tables and drank may wine.

 

Now april, may and june

Are sadly out of tune

Life has stuck a pin in the boat.

 

Spring is here

Why doesnt my heart go dancing?

Spring is here

Why isnt the waltz entrancing?

 

No desire,

No ambition leads me

Maybe its because nobody needs me

 

Spring is here

Why doesnt the breeze delight me?

Stars appear

Why doesnt the night invite me?

 

Maybe its because nobody loves me

Spring is here, I hear

 

Maybe its because nobody loves me

Spring is here, I hear

 

Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year  

 

Spring will be a little late this year
a little late arriving, in my lonely world over here
For you have left me and where is our April love old
Yes you have left me and winter continues cold
As if to say that spring will be a little slow to start
A little slow reviving that music it made in my heart
Cause time heals all things, so I needn't cling to this fear
It's merely that spring will be a little late this year
Yes time heals all things so I needn't cling to this fear
It's merely that spring will be a little late this year

 

When It's Springtime in the Rockies 

 

When it's springtime in the Rockies

I'll be coming back to you

Little sweetheart of the mountains

With your bonnie eyes of blue;

Once again I'll say I love you

While the birds sing all the day

When it's springtime in the Rockies

In the Rockies far away.

 

The twilight shadows deepen into night dear

The city lights are gleaming o'er the snow

I sit alone beside the cheery fireside

I'm dreaming dreams from out the long ago

I fancy it is springtime in the Rockies

The flowers with their colors are aflame

And though I long to be back in the Rockies

I'll wait until the springtime comes again.

 

 

When it's springtime in the Rockies

I'll be coming back to you

Little sweetheart of the mountains

With your bonnie eyes of blue;

Once again I'll say I love you

While the birds sing all the day

When it's springtime in the Rockies

In the Rockies far away...

 

This Is America我是每周必听,American Stories也是如此。

是听错了?还是译错了?

这是今天VOA NEWS 的一段话:

 

Pakistan’s parliament is set to elect the Nation’s new Prime Minister today, more than a month after the defeat of President Musharraf’s political allies in general elections. The party’s slain opposition leader Benazir Bhutto nominated the former parliament speaker Yousaf Raza Gilani as its candidate for this post on Saturday. Mr. Musharraf has just sworn the new Prime Minister on it Tuesday.

 

被刺的人民党领导人贝·布托星期六提名前议会议长基兰尼为总理候选人。

 

死去的人还能提名候选人?请高手指点迷津。
