Later, Morley comes back
Dan: It's too bad swimmers have to stay in their little swim pens.
Morley: I even saw people getting pulled by jet skis on banana boats.
Dan: Let's go do something less damaging to the environment.
Morley: What would that be, Captain Green?
Dan: Let's go to the aquarium and look at ocean life.
Morley: Why don't we just go scuba diving instead?
Dan: Pollution has already killed off all the underwater life.

(下期续)

稍后,莫理回来
阿丹:游泳的人必须待在小小的游泳区里真可怜。
莫理:我还看到有人坐在香蕉船上被水上摩托车拉着跑。
阿丹:我们做些对环境损害较少的活动吧。
莫理:那会是什么呢,绿色大队长?
阿丹:我们去海生馆看海洋生物。
莫理:我们为什么不改成去潜水就好了?
阿丹:污染已经杀光了水中生物。


重点解说:

★ swim pen 范围很小的游泳区域;pen是‘区域,栅栏’
★ banana boat 香蕉船。一种水上游乐设施
★ damage (v.) 损害
★ captain (n.) 队长。green则有‘环保’的意思,所以Morley叫Dan为Captain ★ Green,就是消遣他以环保为己任的态度
★ aquarium (n.) 水族馆,在此指屏东海生馆
★ scuba diving 水肺潜水
★ underwater (a.) 水面下的,水中的

The first known outbreak of Legionnaires' disease was in Philadelphia, USA, in 1976. A total of 221 people contracted the disease and 34 died. Most of those that died were Legionnaires and that's how the disease got its name. The second largest outbreak was at the Stafford hospital in England in 1985; a total of 101 people contracted the disease and 28 died.

军团病已知的首次爆发是1976年在美国费城,当时共有221人感染此病,其中死亡34人。由于大多数死者都是军团成员,因此称为军团病。该病的第二次大爆发是1985年在英国的斯塔福德医院。这次101个感染者中有28人死亡。

 
 => 简明语法


if, whether引导的名词从句 (2)

1)yes-no型疑问从句
  从属连词if, whether引导的名词从句是由一般疑问句或选择疑问转化而来的,因此也分别被称为yes-no型疑问句从句和选择型疑问从句,其功能和wh-从句的功能相同, 例如:

 形容词宾语: She's doubtful whether we shall be able to come.  她怀疑我们是否能够前来。


 介词宾语: I worry about whether he can pass through the crisis of his illness.  我担心他是否能度过疾病的危险期。

2)选择性疑问从句
  选择性疑问从句由关联词if/whether…or或whethe…or not构成,例如:
  Please tell me whether / if they are Swedish or Danish. 请告诉我他们是瑞典人还是丹麦人。
  I don't care whether you like the plan or not.我不在乎你是否喜欢该计划。
