英语史上(据说)有最多歧义的句子。

2020-06-30 21:54:14

英语虽是当今的世界语,但依然充斥着歧义句,含糊不清,往往一句两解,不太明确。

英国近代两位文法大师Jocobs与Rosendbaum合著的English Transformational Grammar为我们提供了“一句六解”的例句,可说是当代歧义句子之中的最高纪录。

请大家细读这句有史以来最多解法的话:

The Seniors were told to stop demonstrating on campus
.

动一动脑筋,看看能列出多少个解法,想好了再看答案啊...

这个句子的第1解:
The seniors were demonstrating and were asked, on campus, to desist.
(高年级的学生在示威,校方在校园要求他们停止示威。)


第2个解法:
The seniors were demonstrating and were asked to desist on campus (although they could demonstrate elsewhere).
(高年级学生在示威,校方要求他们停止在校园中示威但可在其他地方示威)。


第3个解法是:
The seniors were demonstrating on campus and were asked to desist.
(高年级的学生在校园示威,校方叫他们停止示威。)

第4个解法是:
People were demonstrating on campus, and seniors were asked to stop them.
(有人在校园中示威,高年级生被要求去制止他们。)

第5个解法:
People were demonstrating and seniors were asked, on campus, to stop them .
(有人在示威,高年级生在校园中被要求去制止他们。)

第6个解法:
People were demonstrating and seniors were asked, to stop them from doing so on campus (although they could do it elsewhere)
(有人在示威,高年级生被要求去制止他们在校园中示威(但他们可在别处示威。)

1.学生可以交流学习方法心得,请教不会的作业,也可吐槽。 2.非学生可以分享自己在学习的东西,所谓活到老学到老!也可以探讨各种知识类问题。 3也可以分享知识以外的东西,比如在学木匠活?炫耀下最近获得的新技能等。
