Gabe
: So does this Han dynasty pigeon-looking piece mean that Han people thought they came from birds, too?
Maddie: No, it shows the role symbolism had in jade carving.
Gabe: I think you just lost me there.
Maddie: To the Han, the pigeon was a symbol of longevity. These pieces were cane tops.
Gabe: And the canes symbolize what?
Maddie: Nothing. They were gifts given to people by the government to celebrate their eightieth birthdays.

(续上期)

盖柏:所以这个状似鸽子的汉朝文物,代表汉人认为他们也是鸟的后裔啰?
曼蒂:不,这个玉雕是在显示一种角色象征。
盖柏:我想,你把我弄胡涂了。
曼蒂:汉人觉得鸽子是长寿的象征。这些器物是手杖上方的把柄。
盖柏:那些手杖象征什么?
曼蒂:没什么,它们是政府祝贺人八十大寿的礼物。


重点解说:

★ pigeon (n.) 鸽子
★ symbolism (n.) 象征意义;symbol (n.) 象征;symbolize (v.) 象征,代表
★ longevity (n.) 长寿
★ cane (n.) 手杖

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Colors can influence more than your mood. Each color has a special significance in attracting, or repelling, the power of the planets. Saturn is attracted by black, and because Saturn has a negative effect on children, youngsters are cautioned never to wear black clothing. It is a good color, however, for persons born under the signs of Libra, Aquarius, or Capricorn.

颜色能够影响你的不仅仅是你的情绪。每种颜色在吸引或抵制行星的作用力时都有特殊的意义。土星被黑色所吸引。因为土星对孩子有负面影响,所以年轻人被告诫决不要穿黑色的衣服。但是对于出生属于天秤座、宝瓶座或摩羯座的人来说,黑色却是好的颜色。

 
 => 简明语法


neither…nor,either… or

neither… nor+肯定动词是把两个否定说法结合在一起的强调方式:
(a)Neither threats nor arguments had any affect on him.
无论是恐吓还是讲道理对他都不起作用。
(b)They said the room was large and bright but it was neither large nor bright.
他们说这间房子又大又明亮,可它既不大也不明亮。
(c)He neither wrote nor phoned.
他既没写信又没打电话。

either…or+否定动词可代替neither…nor+肯定动词结构
