口语小词误用总结(6): Point

【Point】

pointless(没意义)一词也算它一伙的。

提到这个词,完全是meaning 一词在作怪。

先看几个例子:

1、你这样做是什么意思?

Chinglish: What is your meaning in doing this?

Revision: What's your point?

2、如果你抽烟的话,哪怕就别怕得癌症。再问“上帝怎么这样对我啊“根本没什么意义。

Chinglish: If you smoke, you should not be afraid to get lung cancer. It's meaningless to ask "why did God do this to me?". (注:meaningless可用,但是老外不爱用,爱用的是我们)

Revision: If you smoke, you should be prepared to get lung cancer, it's pointless to ask "why did God do this to me?".

要洗脑子,转变中式思维习惯,就别怕“矫枉过正“。以后凡是遇到“有意义““没意义“的时候,先考虑point/poinless,而不要先考虑meaning什么的。

总评:

使用频率:★★

造句功能:★★

西方思维:★★★★
