TV Repair まとめ

前記事のTV 修理に関して3人のアメリカ人に添削をして頂いたので、まとめておきます。

I couldn't get any picture on the my TV when I wanted to show catoon film to my grandchild.

I couldn't get any picture on my TV when I wanted to show a cartoo film to my grandchild.
I couldn't get any picture on the TV when I wanted to show a cartoon film to my grandchild.

I couldn't get a picture on my TV when I wanted to show a cartoon to my grandchild.

"get any picture" は " get any pictures" にすべきという人もいるし、そのままで良いという人もいたり、単数系の方が自然だという意見もあったり、人それぞれなのにはびっくりしました。 テレビの画像の事なので、日本人からすると複数形が自然だと思うけど、それぞれなんですね。
"on the my TV" も色々と直されたけど、 "on he TV " or "on my TV" が正しいと思う。

My TV is too old, so I wanted to replace an aging my TV.

My TV is too old, so I wanted to replace my aging TV.
My TV is too old, so I wanted to replace my TV.
My TV is too old, so I've wanted to replace it.


"my aging TV" の使い方で意見が分かれましたが、一人の方が "aging" は家具などを長く使っていて、経年変化で古くなった感じなそうで、TVに使うのは自然ではないそうです。 との意見に納得。

I want to buy new TV whic is capable for internet.
I want to buy new TV wich is capable of connecting to the internet.

これは一人だけの添削でした。

I didn't want to check my old TV because it is hot thesse days.
I didn't want to check my old TV because it has been hot these days.

However, yesterday was very cool.
I dismounted everyparts, then I reinstall them.
I dismounted every part, then I reinstalled them.
I uninstalled everything and then I reinstalled them.
I took apart everything, then I put it back together.

これは色々な言い方があるということですが、最後の文章みたいのを使えたらかっこ良いなあ。

My old TV recovered and working well now.
My old TV recovered and is working well now.
My old TV is fixed and working well now.

これも2人の方で分かれてます。 ただ"recovered" は病気などが治った時に使うそうで、"fix" の方が自然な感じです。

I couldn't have new TV which has new capabilities.
I couldn't have a new TV which has new capabilities.
I couldn't get a new TV which has new capabilities.
I couldn'T buy a new TV with new capabilities.
I won't be able to buy a new TV which has the new capabilities.
I won't need to buy a new TV which has the new capabilities.


この文章は色々な言い方があるといくつか紹介してくれましたが、一人の方から興味深い指摘がありました。 一つの文章の中では2つの動詞を繰り返した方が自然らしいのです。 has / have とか。 でも他の人の例では違う動詞で作っているしなあ? う~~ん

アメリカの若造に添削されました。 コメントは
It is good to learn new things even in old age ! だって
う~ん、最初に思ったのは、年寄りのくせに良いこと学んだねってことかな?
ちょっとムカつくけど、
ん、でも冷静に考えると、歳をとっても新しい事を学べるのは良いことだ。かな?
面白いね語学って

All things in moderation

I have gotten got an interested interesting comment from my Lang-8 friend. The comment was "All things in moderation !" First At first I didn't know what the "moderation " meanmeant. I looked in a dictionary. The dictionary says "moderation" is "中庸” , "all things in moderation" is "何事にも中庸が肝心”
I didn't still understand what "中庸" is.
I looked in several English dictionaries. Finally, I got an exact meaning.
The exact meaning is "何事もほどほどに". This is avery usefull sentence for me.
I learned how "moderation" is used.
Drink in moderation. Eat in moderation. Exercize Exercise in moderation.

Yeah, "All things in moderation" is a good saying.

Being Fat

体重の話だと、沢山の方から添削をもらいました。それぞれ違うから語学って面白いですね。コメントも幾つかもらって約に立ちそうな物があるので、下の方に載せて起きます。
I am on the road to being fat I've been gaining more and more weight because I've been eating a lot lately. I don't lose my appetite even though it's too hot in these days. I am wearing tighter clothes these days. So I have to make sure I don't get any fatter. gain weight anymore. I need to avoid turning into a blimp during the summer.
But I really want is to stay thin even I eat everything I want.
I need to avoid becoming chubby during the summer, but I really want to stay thin even if I eat whatever I want.



まずは76歳のアメリカのおばあちゃんのコメント
I am fat now at 76 years old. I have been slim mostly all of my life. But, things, changed. I started eating diffrent things. I ganed weight. I now concerned about my health and want to lose some weight. I think I can find new things to eat that will satisify me. just because it is healthy doesn't mean it must be tasteless. 最近になって太ってきてダイエットしなくちゃいけないけど、健康だけ考えても味気ないし、自分で満足する方法を見つけなくっちゃ?

次は61歳のアメリカのおじいちゃん。
途中省略 ~
All things in moderation!
この意味解らなかったので調べたのだけど、日本語で中庸ということらしいです。さっぱり解らず色々と調べた結果、
何事もほどほどにしておくのが良い と言うことらしいです。 使える言葉だな、これは

Strange rule

I have a strange rule. When I go to a restaurant, I always order a food which I haven't eaten before. that I have never tried. I can eat anything as I am not pickey about food. So I want to try to eat I haven't eaten. somethig that I've never tried. I like any foods not only Japanese foods but also foreign coutry's foods. There are many foods I haven't never eaten in all over the world.



日本人の方に添削してもらいました。 英語出来る人って凄いなあ、憧れるばかりです。
