提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

美众议院议长Pelosi 的一段话:

 

"Our plan will reduce the price at the pump within ten days by releasing oil from the 700-million-barrel federal stockpile."

 

“我们计划是动用国家7亿桶的石油储备在10天内降低油价。”

 

以前见过pay at the pump ,是“油箱旁直接付费”。

 

我觉得pump就是加油站的加油泵。 the price at the pump 就是“油价”了。标红的"at",不会是"of"。像这样的“小词”主要凭感觉了,你再听也听不清楚。对吗?

LS很强,是俺榜样。关于今天NPR,本人愚钝,水平有限,有三处实在搞不清楚,求论坛高人指点。
1. Who continues to stand behind Georgia's democracy, who continues to insist Georgia's sovereignty and independence in territorial integrity we respect it.
 这是布什说的那段话,上面是俺听得,下面是大家认为的
We'll continue to stand  behind Georgia's democracy, We'll continue to insist Georgia's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity be respected.

俺也觉得下面的比较好,不过第一个音是在听不太出有 we'll的感觉。,然后导致最后差很多。

2.
In the Georgian city of Gori, although food is scarce, people say they are surviving that they have enough food to get by.

我觉得这句话蛮顺的,不过听音的时候总觉得有 haven't.听了好几遍了。

3.
We'll consider opening portions of the outer continental shelf drilling with appropriate safeguards and without taxpayer's subsidies to dig oil.

问题出在标红的单词上,我觉得是dig, 当然听上去像big,不过不顺(感觉)。当然俺承认 dig oil 肯能有点中国式英语(挖石油,很顺)。

还请大家指点下,谢谢了!

From NPR news in Washington, I'm Craig Windham.

 

President Bush is hailing Russia's signing of a ceasefire agreement with the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. He called on Russia to withdraw its troops immediately. And he cautioned Russia against trying to take over two breakaway regions. They are /at/ the heart of the conflict in Georgia. NPR's Jim Zarroli reports.

 

The President said the international community is clear that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are part of Georgia. And he said Russia's decision to lay claim to them was a major issue in resolving the conflict. Speaking at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, he said there's no room for debate on this matter. "We'll continue to stand behind Georgia's democracy, we'll continue to insist Georgia's sovereignty and independence and territorial integrity be respected." The President also said that Moscow's decision to sign a ceasefire agreement was a hopeful step. Jim Zarroli NPR news.

 

But Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters any withdrawal of troops will depend on what he called "additional security measures" being put in place, although he did not elaborate. And Lavrov added that Russian forces will stay in Georgia as long as they are needed. NPR's Gregory Feifer is in the key Georgian city that is occupied by Russian troops.

 

In the Georgian city of Gori, although food is scarce, people say they are surviving that they have enough food to get by. The food is being handed out by the Russian forces occupying the city, as say, a sort of gesture of good will. I guess, I guess that you can call it that. But the Georgians are certainly grateful for that in anything they can get. NPR's Gregory Feifer in Gori, Georgia.

 

Florida's governor has issued a disaster declaration as /the/ tropical storm Fay churns its way toward/s/ the state. Forecasters say it could reach hurricane strength over the next day or so before reaching the Florida Keys. In Key West, public information officer Becky Harren says it's time for people to start getting ready. "We need people to begin putting their hurricane’s plans in place and biding what they are going to do individually, and getting their supplies together, deciding if they are going to leave or they’re going to stay." Harren says the entire island chain is vulnerable because it's basically at sea level.

 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is indicating the congressional democrats maybe willing to support some additional offshore oil drilling. "We'll consider opening portions of the outer continental shelf for drilling with appropriate safeguards and without taxpayers' subsidies to big oil." But Pelosi in the Democrat's radio address said drilling is just part of the Democrat's plan for winning the nation from dependence on foreign oil and for our bringing down high gas prices. "Our plan will reduce the price at the pump within ten days by releasing oil from the 700,000,000 barrel federal stockpile" The Bush administration though and the Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain oppose using oil from the nation's strategic petroleum  reserve to help put down repressure on oil prices.

 

This is NPR news from Washington.

  

Firefighters are dropping retardant chemicals and digging containment lines around five wild fires sparked by a lightning storm in California's Los Padres National Forest. All of blazes are burning out of control, but so far no evacuations have been ordered.

 

Canada is facing an embarrassing security breach after a sensitive government document was found on a street in Ottawa. More from Dan Karpenchuk.

 

The document, made up of 131 pages, was found on the rain-soaked street in a brown envelope, it was titled "NEMESIS", a classified database used by officers to track and prosecute polluters and environmental lawbreakers. It detailed the number of the system’s failings and even described how the data could be attacked by industrial hackers, /and/ environmental activists or organized crime. If someone were able to shut down or corrupt the system, officers might not be able to prosecute cases. One analyst says the document was labeled "Protected B", meaning it was not top secret, but /it/ should still be handled with special care. A spokesperson for Environment Canada will not give details about how the document ended up on the street, but said the department will look into the incident. For NPR news, I'm Dan Karpenchuk in Toronto.

 

Mega-swimmer /winner/ Michael Phelps goes after a record-breaking 8th gold medal at the Beijing Olympics tonight as he swims in the 4X100-meter medley relay. Also today 41 year-old American swimmer Dara Torres, competing her 5th Olympics will go for gold in the 50m freestyle event. In other action, the US Men's Basketball team remained undefeated, trouncing /the/ World Champion Spain. Venus and Serena Williams have clinched at least a silver medal in Double's Tennis. And in Men's Water Polo, the US’/ upset World Champion Croatia.

 

I’m Craig Windham, /from/ NPR news in Washington.

TO: 翩然斑斑

两点意见哈:)

1.句子In the Georgian city of Gori, although food is scare, people say they are surviving that they have enough food to get by. 这里感觉还是应该是HAVE, 因为前半句已经用although food is scare说明食物不足,后半句转折说但他们还是有足够的食物勉强维持。have 和enough连读,所以听上去像haven't的音。如果是haven't enough,那就能听到TI的音了。

2.句子deciding if they’re going to leave or if they’re going to stay,后面应该也是有个IF的。

不好意思,没有及时回复,昨天外出了一天,今天晚上才到家

 

1. 我翻译一下,虽然食物紧缺,但是人们说他们仍然在没有足够食物吃的情况下存活了下来。plato注意下,这个转折是在they are surviving这里,不是在they have enough food to get by这里,这个that引导的句子是作及物动词survive的宾语,和前面的although是没有关系的。至于读音,我觉得对于分辨这种有没有n't的情况,是没多大用的,绝大多数情况都是靠意思去判断。

 

2. 是有个if,谢谢plato^_^
