我時常寫出錯字和別字,屢次被我的前度女友指出來,她喜歡我的身體面龐,但不喜歡我以拾荒為生,更討厭我胸無點墨。擁有強勁事業線的她,終於改投一位作家的懷抱,那位作家在為《爽報》寫「古」。真悲慘呀(我說的是她)!但人總要為自己的抉擇承擔後果,離開我的女生都沒有好下場!不過,她從前給我改過的,我都保留,好作紀念。

年前或更長時間(記不清楚了),化六十八元購了Mia WongDavid Lam寫的Superb Composition(五星A級作文)(英文作文摘星奪A系列的第一本,即下圖右上角紫紅色那本)。當時翻看覺得,書中有些句子可以學習,但有些地方離奇的錯。我慵懶,沒有深究,放下書,就這樣,一段很長的時間過了。

今夜偶翻此書,發現Mia Wong在第一個題目Gambling的十五句例句,雖然沒有注明出處,卻全部抄自政府以下這份有關賭博的諮詢文件,除了一點小改,九成以上原字照搬(不過,編書時參考別人,問題還不算很大,天下文章一大抄!)。

中文的「以上」、「以下」等,令我混亂。 

七人以上是「七個人和更多」抑或「八個人和更多」?它「含本數」嗎?這問題一直令我懊惱。

John | 17th Sep 2011, 20:34 PM | HKALE/DSE-寫得更好/試場改文/文法改錯 | (15947 Reads)

好像是幾天前吧,寫過一篇談七種基本句型的博(http://englishwizard.mysinablog.com/index.php?op=ViewArticle&articleId=3184369),其中給的例子,都是簡單句(simple sentence),所以,那篇博也是簡單句的基礎。

 

今天不知怎的,想談複合句(compound sentence)和複雜句(complex sentence)。這個檢破爛的,做事總是不那麽誠敬,總是那麽貪心、急躁,要用一篇博談兩個不算很簡單的文法概念。縱使明知沒有甚麽這樣做的理由,也決不改變主意。

 

如能將這篇和七種基本句型那篇多看幾遍,或許能對英文的三種句子simple sentencecompound sentencecomplex sentence有點掌握,對造句是有幫助的。可以隔一個星期看一遍,多看幾次無妨(覺得不值得看的當然不用化掉寶貴的時間)。

 

希望沒有將句子的概念寫得更死,但如果不想多看「類死」的東西,可以多看文中的句例。很多人忘了概念,但總能寫出正確的句子,就是因為接觸的句例多了,一見錯句就覺得It doesn’t sound right,那也就罷了。

The following is a conversation between Andrew and his girlfriend Grace, but the statements in the conversation are not arranged in order.  Pair the statements in Column A with those in Column B so that the second statement follows naturally from the first.  Note that two correctly matched statements from Column A and Column B will form a pair, and all statements correctly put together will form a complete conversation.  Write the letters (i.e. A, B, C, etc.) of the statements from Column B in the brackets provided in Column A.  Each letter should be used ONCE ONLY.

關於考評局的試題,寫幾句,很短。

歪中更無歪中手

萬題不及此題曲 

考評局要求考生在完成Section Ewriting task時,要organize the information in an article in a reader-friendly manner。不過,對唔住,考評局永遠candidate-unfriendly

 

UEDSE考試,反映一個和學生不同的世界,一個由成年人掌握話語權的世界。誰的地位高,誰掌握權力,誰的話就是真理。考試報告永遠只談考生如何犯錯。考評局出錯題呢?隻字不談。考評局的candidate-unfriendliness啦?若無其事。

有位誌友問我

What are the differences in the meanings of these words / What are the differences in meaning among these words: uprising, revolution, insurrection, riot, revolt, rebellion, mutiny, insurgence?

我哪懂得?只好請教我的老友反抗老。我將他的答案附後。不過,我想先說明一句。I am lazybones,真的不想答各位其他問題了,唔好意思。(真正原因是我根本不懂答!)

其實,誌友的提問,一直都帶給我不少靈感,或多或少令我察知他們的程度、強項和弱項和自己的無知,有助我寫好網誌,但也給我要做homework的感覺(我喜歡的是自由自在的感覺),所以我還是不想答,不想再答啦,謝謝。

本文是一篇「示威是否有暴力問題」的範文,另加寫議論文的三項輔助方法,因為超過了一篇博的篇幅,只好分上、分兩篇,上篇是範文的正文及註釋。下篇包括範文的正文,但沒有註釋,還包括寫好argumentative essay的三個方法,即 (1) 如何用 modal (auxiliary) verbs調整語氣(調整說得太直、太死的話);(2) 如何用-ly adverbs調整語氣(調整說得太直、太死的話);(3) 如何用-ly adverbs加強語氣(和(1)(2)相反)。這是下篇。 

範文的題目: 

Seeing the rise in protesting activities in Hong Kong, some people are worried that Hong Kong may become a violent city, while others are supportive of the protestors.  Write a letter to the Young Post stating your views on the issue.  Sign your name ‘Chris Wong’
