英语vs美语(1)

今期要讨论的是有关英语和美语的一些差别。实际上,英语和美语在很大的程度上是相近的,而区别性只占了其中的小部分。不过,这些区别性却足以造成混淆,甚至在某些情况下的尴尬场面。今期要谈的是有关词汇方面的分别。

当你看到以下这些词汇时,你能分辨出哪些是英语,哪些是美语呢?
1/ 我们在快餐店喜爱吃的French frieschips,以及potato chipscrisps
2/ 家里的stovecooker
3/ 日常生活不可或缺的cell phonemobile phone
4/ 去油站是买gas还是petrol
5/ 运动场上的sneakerstrainers
6/ 车的trunk还是boot

对一对,看看你分辨出来了吗:
French friespotato chipsstovecell phonegassneakerstrunk是美语。
其他例子有:
英语说dressing gown,美语是bathrobe
英语说motorway,美语是expressway

一些词汇在英语和美语中都有,但意思却天差地远哦:
Pants,在美语中是指长裤,英语的Pants是指男内裤。

家 by 杨凯婷



家,
是个地方,
是个避风港,
是永远的依靠,
是你的住所,
是你幸福的来源。

家,
有了爱才算家,
有了关怀才算家,
有了争吵才算家,
有了爱你的家人才算家。

家,
让你依靠,
让你撒娇,
让你快乐,
让你难过,
让你生气,
但,也让你幸福。

家,
是独一无二的,
是金钱买不到的,
是无法衡量的,
是无限为你付出的,
是唯一能在你犯了错后接纳你的地方。

家,
温暖,可靠
关怀,信任
快乐,幸福。

Thank You by Zhi Cheng on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 at 10:03pm


Still left few days, I will leave hometown and back to campus. The time past so fast before I realize it. This summer holiday means lots to me.


First, I would like to mention about the tuition. I would like to say thank you, as you guys give me money, haha. Besides, I would like to say sorry also, for those who always been bullied by me. =) Anyway, nice memories with you all, wish you guys good luck in SPM, and hope to meet you in the future.


This holiday is meaningless without the basketball competition. I am really happy and proud to be a part of Smarter team, and I felt relax and comfortable with you guys. We have joy together, we train together (though I am the one who always absent), we go up mountain, and we shout together! =) I would like to apologize for the game versus BBA, as that time I got a bit hot temper as I really wish to win the game, but finally we lost. Anyway, I really learn lots from you guys, and I wish to play again with you soon. I just want to say that, Smarter SMART!


Besides, I would like to represent the team to thank See Siang, who guide us during the match, as well as Wee Long, who had captured lots pictures for us. Last but not least, Mr Huang Kee Hin! haha. Thanks for giving me the chance to play the match and the tuition.
