Fantastic Features We Don't Have In The English Language

Fantastic Features We Don't Have In The English Language

– @tomscott – There are lots of interesting features in other languages, some of which English would really benefit from having. I’m going to talk about four of them: time-independence, clusivity, absolute direction, and evidentiality. Also, I’ve learned from last week: no irritating piano music this time! UNESCO list of endangered languages: 大多数只说一种语言的人以为其他语言跟他们的语言差不多, 只是用了不同的词汇,不同的语序或者不同的书写方式。 其实不然,在其他语言中有许多有趣的特质, 有些很值得英语借鉴。接下来介绍其中的四种。 第一种:时态独立性。 如果你想用英语描述一个动作,你必须说出它是什么时候发生的,或它将在什么时候发生。 你必须说明。动词就是这样根据时态变形的。我跳舞了——过去时。我正在跳舞, 我跳舞——现在时。我将要跳舞——将来时。在英语里如果不提到时态 就没有办法描述一个人跳舞的概念。相对的,如果用 中文呢?动词不用变形。 在大多数情况下,文本的含义就很明确。我并不是指中文没有时态系统, 只是时态并不是必不可少的。并不需要在 每个句子里都出现。 旁注:时态并不只是过去、现在、将来这么简单,在其他一些语言里 还有一些可爱的微妙的时态。我在后面的视频中会进一步提到。 总之,如果你写一首时间感模糊的诗,那么中文 就很适合。 第二种:包含性。… Read Article →
