After the catacombs; at Notre Dame
Li: Now this church seems a lot older. Excuse me, would you take a picture?
Old Man: You can't use a flash in here.
Li: That's OK. Just see if you can get both of us in.
Old Man: Do you want anything special in that background?
Li: [Looks behind her] Um...how about that big organ?
Old Man: That should be simple. [Presses button] Did the picture take?
Li: [Looks at her camera] Hmm, I don't think so. Could you snap one more to be sure?

老人:你不能在这用闪光灯。
小莉:没问题。只要试着把我们两个照进去就好了。
老人:你们想要什么特别的背景吗?
小莉:(看她后面)嗯……这个大风琴如何?
老人:那应该很简单。(按下按钮)照了吗?
小莉:(看她的相机)嗯,我想没有。你可以多照一张以防万一吗?

  <播放语音>

Once upon a time, in a solar system that is so, so far away from here that you wouldn't believe me if I told you, were two planets. Their names were Yee and Lan, and they loved each other very much. Every time they saw each other they would whisper planet secrets, or share wisps of atmosphere, or tell silly jokes.

从前,在一个离这里很远很远,远得令你难以置信的太阳系里,有两颗行星,它们的名字是Yee和Lan,它们深深地相爱着。每一次见面,它们都会耳语一些行星的小秘密,或是共享团团气雾,或者说一些无意义的笑话。

ought/should与must和 have to的比较 (2)

ought/should与must和have to之间的又一区别在于,用must 和have to时通常给人的印象是一种义务正在被履行或将被履行。主语为第一人称时尤其是这样,而其他人称为主语时也常是这样。但ought/should则不使人特别感到义务正在或将要被履行。它时常给人义务不在或不将得到履行的印象,在第一人称主语后更是如此。

如果一位驾驶员说I ought to/should go slowly here;it's a built-up area(我是该在此慢行的,这是一个建筑物密集的地区),这通常这意味着他不想要放慢车速。如果他真的要放慢车速,他会说I must go/have to go/I will have to go slowly here。同样,如果某人说 We must have a party to celebrate your engagement(我们必须举办一个聚会来庆祝你的订婚之喜),他的朋友们有相当理由相信会举行聚会的,但如果他说We should have a party…就不是非常确定无疑的事了,他说话的语气或表情可能表示不可能举行聚会。
