口语小词误用总结(7): Sense, Afford

【Sense】

这个词主要由于几个相关短语而流行的。

这几个短语分别是: a sense of (responsibility, humor...)---有幽默感等, make sense/not make any sense,有意义,没意义(所以我说别老用meaningless,不是人家听不懂,那很中式的)。

几个例句:

1. 我很喜欢他。他很有幽默感。

Chinglish: I very like him. He is very humorous.

Revision: I like him very much. He has a good sense of humor.

2、我知道,不过有的地方没什么意义。

Chinglish: I know, but it's meaningless in some places.

Revision: I know, but again at some point it doesn't make any sense.

3、什么?至少六周?这样做有什么意义呢?

What? at least 6 weeks? Does it make any sense?(或what's your point?)

【Afford】

意思是买的起,付得起、花得起时间、金钱、精力等。

但是Afford只能表示能力,不表示意愿。例如我们可以说I'm willing to pay, but I really can't afford it,而不能说I'm willing to afford it。

用好这个词,我们的水平就会提高一个档次,让你的同学打心底里佩服。

我们来看一些例子:

1. 这顶帽子贵得也太离谱了,我买不起。

Chinglish: This hat is extremely expensive, I can't buy it.

Revision: This hat is so expensive that I can't afford it.

2. 这个村子里好多儿童都上不起学。

Chinglish: Lots of kids can't go to school because they're poor. (意思表达出来了但是不精练)

Revision: Plenty of kids in this village can't afford to go to school (can't afford education).

3. 抱歉,我跟你玩不起。

Chinglish: Sorry, I can't play with you.

Revision: I can't afford to play 'games' with you, sorry.

现在工作太忙了,老板要知道我偷偷干别的,还不炒了我,I can't afford to lose my job, because I'm the bread-winner and I have a big family to support.
