Merle
: And then some. So, are you from the U.S.? Do companies there give year-end bonuses, too?
Marvin: Some do, but I don't think it's as common as it is here. And we get them around Christmas, not Chinese New Year.
Merle: Of course. Which state are you from? I heard that if you live in Alaska, you get a thousand dollars every year.
Marvin: That must be because they have so much oil money. I'm from Pennsylvania, so I wouldn't know.
Merle: With my company doing badly, maybe we should all just move to the North Pole.
Marvin: Do say hello to the polar bears for me, if you go.

(待续)

梅洛:还不只咧。你是从美国来的?那边的公司也会发年终奖金吗?
马文:有些会,不过我不觉得像这边这么普遍。而且我们都是圣诞节那时领,不是农历新年。
梅洛:当然。你来自哪一州?我听说要是你住在阿拉斯加,每年都可以领一千美元。
马文:那一定是因为他们有很多石油收入。我来自宾州,所以我不知道。
梅洛:我们公司经营这么差,也许我们全都该搬去北极算了。
马文:如果你去的话,帮我跟北极熊打声招呼。


重点解说:

★ And then some. 还有更多。
★ oil (n.) 这边是指‘石油’,oil money是指‘阿拉斯加州’Alaska政府因有石油相关税收而非常富有,当地居民有‘石油津贴’可拿
★ Pennsylvania (n.) 宾夕凡尼亚州
★ north pole 北极。polar bear是‘北极熊’

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Others are weather or meteorological satellites, launched to monitor the state of the atmosphere and to follow the movement of the clouds as they gather. There are also military satellites, for the purpose of gathering in formation on the armaments and the troops in countries which may be hostile and also to indicate the launch of a missile.

有些则是天气或气象卫星,发射升空用于监测大气状况,并在云层形成后跟踪其运动轨迹。此外,还有军事卫星,用于收集可能的敌对国的军事情报,还能在有导弹发射时发出信号。

 
 => 简明语法


过去进行时替代一般过去时的用法 (2)

注意:进行时态只用于表示显然是连续不断的动作。如果把动作分割开,或者说出其发生的次数,就必须用一般过去时:

I talked to Tom several times.
我跟汤姆谈过几次话。
Tom washed both cars.
汤姆把两辆汽车都洗了。

当然,看来是并行的两个动作可以都用进行时态来表示:

Between one and two I was doing the shopping and walking the dog.
一点到两点之间我在购物、遛狗。

这样用的进行时态通常和某些时间状语如 today,last night,in the afternoon连用。这些时间状语可以看做是表示某一时刻,也可以看做是表示某一段时间。如上面例句所示,某一段时间也可以用确切的时间来表示。
