Maddie
: And then some. Chinese feel that jade symbolizes human nature: Pure and warm to the touch, strong and yet workable.
Dan: How did you learn all this stuff?
Maddie: Months of classes. If you look here near the entrance, you'll see the Chinese character for jade.
Dan: It's almost the same as the character for king or ruler.
Maddie: Exactly, the idea is that jade was something used and appreciated by the nobility.
Dan: This piece is like 7,000 years old.

(续上期)

曼蒂:除此之外,中国人认为玉代表人的天性︰纯洁、温润、刚毅但可被雕琢。
丹:你是怎么学到这些东西的?
曼蒂:上了几个月的课。如果来看入口的附近,你会看到玉这个字的中文。
丹:跟王者或统治者那个字几乎一样。
曼蒂:没错,这个概念就是玉是被贵族所使用和欣赏的。
丹:这件玉器大概有七千年了。

Influenza can also infect many different warm-blooded animals, such as birds. However, the "flu" virus usually develops different variants that are specialized for each species of animal that they infect. Cross species infections are rare.

流感也可以感染许多不同种类的温血动物,例如鸟类。但是,流感病毒通常是针对不同种类的动物滋生出不同的变种病毒,跨物种传染的情况很少。

 
 => 简明语法


everyone/everybody和everything(代词)

everyone/everybody+单数动词通常要比all(the)people+复数动词更常用,如可以说Everyone is ready(人人都准备好了),而不说All the people are ready。everyone和everybody之间不存在任何区别。

everything同样要比all(the)things更常用。如可以说Everything has been wasted(一切都浪费了),而不说 All the things have been wasted。

all(the)people,all(the)things可与短语或从句连用:
All the people in the room clapped.
全屋的人都鼓掌。
I got all the things you asked for.
我弄到了你要的一切。

除此之外,all(the)people和all(the)things很少使用。
