名著简介

  • FRANKENSTEIN

    天涧;

    本刊去年第十一期介绍国际象棋冠军卡斯帕罗夫答记者问一文时,导言中有一句话说,卡第一局输棋使某些人恐慌地感叹道;难道FRANKENSTEIN 的悲剧又要重演吗?一些读者朋友可能不了解此典故的来由,也无从理解此话的含义了。FRANKENSTEIN(弗兰肯斯泰因)是英国女作家 Mary Shelley1818年所著的一部同名小说中的主人公的名字。他是一个医学研究者,因创造了一个有生命的怪物,并最终被怪物所毁灭。小说称不上杰作,现在也很少有人阅读了。但故事成了典故,弗兰肯斯泰因这个名字也被用来指称危及或毁灭其创造者的事物。本文就是小说 FRANKENSTEIN 的内容简介。

  • and连接的形容词或副词习语

    姚冬莲;

    <正> 英语中有许多习语是由 and 连接两个形容词或副词构成的,形容词或副词的顺序往往约定俗成,不可颠倒。这些貌似平常的英语习语在结构上有时与汉语有着相似之处,但它们的实际意义并不是字面意义的简单组合,甚至有可能相距甚远。正确理解并掌握习语的意义和用法对于有效扩大词汇量、提高英语水平有着十分重要的作用。下面举例加以说明:1.black and blue:bruised

  • 英语数词与介词的搭配

    游建民;

    <正> 学英语的人都知道,one of 是"……之一"的意思。但实际上,数词与介词搭配表示"……中有……"的概念是很灵活的。若不搞清楚它们之间的关系,使用时就容易出错。现将常用的几种表达方式分述如下:一.of 表示部分,其后一般不再出现数词。但若 of 两边都有数词,则 of 后面的数词之前多有定冠词或物主代词,因为这时 of 后面的数是一特定的总数。
