今天的句子:

During the Middle Ages, unicorns represented purity; in many paintings and tapestries, they were paired with virgins. In Silicon Valley, unicorn famously signifies a particularly valuable start-up. Germany’s unicorn craze seems to evoke something more basic. In a country that prides itself on its orderliness and rationality, the fanciful creature represents a means of escape.

思考题:

The meaning of unicorn in Germany now evolves from the meaning of the Middle Ages.

第一句:

During the Middle Ages, unicorns represented purity; in many paintings and tapestries, they were paired with virgins.

词汇突破:

1.the Middle Ages:

2.unicorn:独角兽

3.purity:纯洁

4.tapestries:挂毯

5.paired with:和…配对;放在一起;

6. virgin 处女

参考译文:在中世纪,独角兽代表纯洁;在许多绘画和挂毯中,他们与处女配对。

第二句:

In Silicon Valley, unicorn famously signifies a particularly valuable start-up.

词汇突破:

Silicon Valley:硅谷

Signify: 象征

start-up:初创型公司

参考译文:在硅谷,总所周知,独角兽象征着特别有价值的初创企业。

(在中国也是,最近比较火的就是独角兽企业。估值已经达到10亿美金以上,而且还没有上市的公司就被称之为独角兽企业。)

第三句:

Germany’s unicorn craze seems to evoke something more basic.

词汇突破:

1.Germany’s unicorn craze:德国对于独角兽的狂热

2.Evoke:激起了

参考译文:德国的独角兽热潮似乎唤起了更基本的东西。

第四句:

In a country that prides itself on its orderliness and rationality, the fanciful creature represents a means of escape.

词汇突破:

1.Pride oneself on sth: 以…为骄傲

2.Orderliness:井然有序

3.Rationality:理性

4.the fanciful creature:异想天开的生物;神奇的动物

参考译文:在一个以井然有序和理性自居的国家里,这种异想天开的生物代表着一种逃避的方式。

所以思考题:

The meaning of unicorn in Germany now evolves from the meaning of the Middle Ages.

“现在德国的独角兽的含义是源自于中世纪的含义的。”

这个说法就是没有依据的,所以可以被判定为F; (是的没有依据就是错误的。)

所以问一下你们认为小猪佩琪到底代表什么含义呢?

明天的句子:

In deed if not in word, the Trump administration has abandoned central tenets of conservative economic orthodoxy, a commitment to austerity and ulta-low inflation foremost among them. The passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was followed not by deep cuts in safety-net spending, as partisans of small government might have hoped, but rather by an omnibus spending bill that dynamited the sequestration caps dreamed up by self-professed GOP deficit hawks.

思考题一:

The conservative economic policy champions the austerity.

思考题二:

Self-professed GOP deficit hawks proposed the sequestration caps.
