已經那個多久了(現在完成進行式have/has + been +ving:Part I)


有一天我去英國倫敦找班乃迪克(新世紀福爾摩斯的男主角)要簽名,我到他家時他媽跟我說他還在睡覺,而且已經睡了十個小時了,這個狀況班乃迪克他媽要用現在完成進行式說:He has been sleeping for ten hours.

那個那個了沒?(現在完成式 have/has + pp + yet)


現在完成式可以搭配使用yet來問人家一個動作做完了沒。Yet常用在兩個地方,一個是用在今天要講的現在完成式,另一個是當作「然而」使用。當作然而使用時,當然就不能套用在今天要說的yet在現在完成式中的用法。

已經那個了(現在完成式 have/has + already + pp)


到目前為止已經完成的動作也可以用現在完成式,搭配已經 already。跟剛剛才怎樣怎樣一樣,就是這個已經那個了的那個必須是動作,不能用名詞,跟中文的文法邏輯相同,例如你不能說我已經陽春麵他已經蚵仔麵線之類的,是相同的道理。

剛剛才完成(現在完成式 have/has + just + pp)


剛剛才完成的動作,也可以用現在完成式,而且可以搭配使用 just,即剛剛才怎樣怎樣。這個怎樣怎樣必須是一個動詞,中文的文法也是相同的邏輯,例如你不能說我剛剛才芒果他剛剛才芭樂,對吧,必須是動作才行。

一個瘋瘋癲癲的醉漢 A Crazy Drunkard


西元2000年三月,當台灣正在如火如荼的舉行總統大選時,我被當時上班的公司派到德國慕尼黑去上一個課程,所以當然沒有投到票。

There was a presidential election in March 2000. When the campaign was on its heat, I was sent to Germany to take a course by the company that I worked for then, so certainly I missed the chance to vote.

憤世嫉俗無底線 Being Bottomlessly Cynical


我的專長不多,其中一項是憤世嫉俗。再怎麼美好的事情,我總是會往不美好的方向去想。
 
There are not many things I am good at, but I am extremely good at being cynical, and bottomlessly.

選書是件難事 Difficult to Choose a Book


選書是一件很困難的事。例如有次讀到一間書店介紹一本書很令人感動,我興沖沖的買來以後卻覺得還好,呃,老實說是一點也沒有被感動到,雖然書並不難看。

旅行時做過的瘋狂事 The Craziest Thing I Did While Traveling


出國旅行時,你有做過什麼瘋狂的事嗎?真心的希望你有,因為多數的人出國是跟團,跟團是一種缺乏安全感在作祟,出於對未知的恐懼,所以選擇跟團。


Did you ever do any crazy things while traveling? I really wish you did. Most Taiwanese people choose to join a tour group while going abroad. I think this kind of choice is based on lacking sense of security and is out of fear of the unknown world.

厚著臉皮學英文Cheeky English Learner


我從來沒有出國讀過書,英文口說的訓練完全來自於工作經驗。雖然大學是讀英文系,但是會話課時二十多個同學在一班,口說訓練的機會是能有多少?
 
I have never studied abroad and got all my English speaking practice from my work experience. Though English was my major back at college, there were over twenty students in my class, so the chance I got to practice speaking was very limited.

就是愛計較 Being Fussy about Everything


小時候跟兄姐弟吵架時,大人總是罵我愛計較。
那時覺得當大人真好,都不愛計較,好想快點長大當大人。
 
When I was little and had a fight with my siblings, the adults also scolded me about fussing over trifle things.
I used to envy adults. I naively believed that adults didn’t fuss over trifle things.
It would be much better to be an adult so I couldn’t wait to grow up to be an adult.

開車習慣很糟 Used to Be A Nasty Driver


大概十六年前我買了一部小白車,去年十一月把車賣了,從此無車一身輕。
 
I bought a car about 16 years ago, and I sold it last year in November.
 
有車子的感覺其實挺好的,有一種心情不好的時候,拿起車鑰匙就可以任性的開去任何地方的痛快,雖然我從來沒有真的這麼做過。
 
Possessing a car is actually a kind of good feeling. When I felt low, I could grab the car keys and drive all the way to anywhere I wanted to. It gave me a great sense of freedom though I never drove all the way to anywhere I wanted to.

傍晚五點 Around 5 p.m. (下)

一開始當然不能讓同事知道他們在交往. 中午的時候如果馬克杯沒有去拜訪客戶趕不回來, 他們還是跟大家一樣一起去公司後面小巷子的小餐館吃午餐. 晚上下班時也是各走各的, 但是每天傍晚大約五點快要下班時, 馬克杯會打電話給她, 討論晚上下班要去哪裏. 是去吃飯呢還是看電影. 現在陳菲菲不用再羨慕瑞塔了, 因為她也有一個會在下班時騎機車載她的男朋友.
 
At the very early stage of their relationship, certainly their coworkers were not to know. They had lunch with other coworkers as usual if Mug was not out visiting clients. After work they didn’t leave the office together. However, around 5 pm Mug would call Phoebe to discuss evening plans. Should we go for a movie? Dinner together? Something like that. Now Phoebe didn’t have to envy Rita any more. She also had a boyfriend who she could put her arms around his waist on his motorcycle after work.

傍晚五點 Around 5 p.m. (上)

這是一個很簡單很普通的小小愛情故事. 女主角陳菲菲出生於1960年. 她和大部份的台北女生一樣, 生長在一個普通的台北小康人家. 當學生的求學階段沒有特別出色, 但也沒有特別差, 好歹高中畢業後有考上一所普普通通的大學中文系. 跟多數人一樣大學畢業後開始工作, 沒有什麼社會經驗的她當然選工作的判斷力有待加強. 再加上其實也沒有什麼特別的興趣, 所以剛畢業時找到的工作都待不久. 畢業幾年後, 在她大約25歲時, 也就是1985年, 換了工作. 新工作是一家廣告公司, 不是像奧美那種光鮮亮麗的公司, 進去工作一陣子就像鍍了層金. 是那種替外銷貿易商登紙上英文廣告的公司. 陳菲菲是一個部門的小助理. 負責幫廣告業務打打英文廣告稿, 月底時幫他們做做帳, 看誰業績比較高這樣.
 
This is a very simple and ordinary love story. The heroine of this story is Phoebe Chen who was born in 1960. Like most Taipei girls, she was born in an ordinary middle class family. When she was a student, she was neither brilliant nor dumb, so naturally after graduating from high school, she studied in a college which was neither particularly good nor extremely bad in the Chinese Department. And once again like most people she started work after graduating from college. As a freshman in the real world, it was not surprising that she was not good at making wise judgment in order to get a suitable job. The first few jobs she had got all didn’t last long. After a few years, when she was 25 years old, which was in 1985, she changed her job again. It was a sales assistant position in an advertising agency, which was, unfortunately, not a glamour agency like Ogilvy & Mather that once you got the chance to work there, when you left and switched to another company your salary level would be automatically increased a lot. No. Phoebe didn’t work for that kind of trendy advertising agency. It was a trade media which published magazines with advertisements for exporters to read and source products. Phoebe’s job was to type advertisement drafts for the AEs, calculate their commissions at the end of every month to see who won the best salesperson award that month.

因為很重要所以要說/寫三次


原本以為這是鄉民發明的
但最近發現其實一百多年前有一位美國女作家就已經這麼用了
這位作家名字是 Jean Webster 
在1912年時她出版了一本到現在都還很受歡迎的小說
Daddy-Long-Legs 長腿叔叔
根據我的觀察, 在這本書中"因為很重要所以說三次" 總共出現了三次.
