Lesson 42: Not very musical

并非很懂音乐

First listen and then answer the question.

听录音,然后回答以下问题。

What happened when the snake charmer began to play jazz?

As we had had a long walk through one of the markets of old Delhi, we stopped at a square to have a rest. After a time, we noticed a snake charmer with two large baskets at the other side of the square, so we went to have a look at him. As soon as he saw us, he picked up a long pipe which was covered with coins and opened one of the baskets. When he began to play a tune, we had our first glimpse of the snake. It rose out of the basket and began to follow the movements of the pipe. We were very much surprised when the snake charmer suddenly began to play jazz and modern pop songs. The snake, however, continued to 'dance' slowly. It obviously could not tell the difference between Indian music and jazz!

参考译文

当我们穿过旧德里的市场时走了很长一段路,我们在一个广场上停下来休息。过了一会儿,我们注意到广场的那一边有一个带着两个大筐的耍蛇人,于是就走过去看看。他一见我们,就拿起了一个长长的上面镶有硬币的管乐器,并掀开了一个筐的盖子。当他开始吹奏一支曲子时,我们才第一次看到那条蛇。它从筐里探出身子,随着乐器的摆动而扭动。当耍蛇人突然又吹奏起爵士乐和现代流行乐曲时,我们感到非常惊奇。然而那蛇却还是缓慢地“舞动”着。显然,它分辨不出印度音乐和爵士乐!

自学导读

1.…we stopped at a square to have a rest.……我们在一个广场上停下来休息。

stop 后面跟不定式时,表示停下其他活动去做不定式表示的动作:

On the way to the station, I stopped to buy a paper.

在去车站的路上,我停下来买了张报纸。

stop后面如果跟动名词形式,则表示停止该动作:

I've stopped buying newspapers

我已不再买报纸了。

How can we stop him complaining?

我们如何才能让他不抱怨呢?

2.after a time, 过了一会儿,不久以后。

time在这里表示“(一段)时间”:

He lived abroad for a long time.

他在国外生活了很长时间。

I saw him a short time ago.

我刚才还看见他了。

After a time, the dog stopped following me.

过了一会儿,那条狗便不再跟着我了。

3.…we had our first glimpse of the snake. ……我们才第一次看到了那条蛇。

glimpse表示“一瞥”、“一看”,是可数名词,常用于下列短语中:

have/ get a glimpse of, catch a glimpse of, take a glimpse at:

He took a glimpse at the‘No Parking’signs outside Jasper's gate and parked his car there.

他瞥了一眼贾斯珀家大门外边的那些“禁止停车”的牌子,

然后把车停在了那里。(有意识的、短暂的动作)

This afternoon I caught/got/had a glimpse of Debbie and Dan walking together in the park.

今天下午我瞥见黛比和丹一起在公园里散步。(无意的、短暂的动作)

4.It obviously could not tell the difference between Indian music and jazz! 显然,它分辨不出印度音乐和爵士乐!

(1)tell表示“辨别”、“分辨”、“识别”时常与 can,could,be able to连用。表达这些意义时,tell可以单独使用,也可以与from构成词组:

(2)表示两者之间的“差别”、“差异”时常用 difference between:

What's the difference between them?

他/它们之间有何区别?

There's a lot of difference between Englishmen and Frenchmen.

英国人和法国人之间有许多差别。

在有些情况下也可以不跟 between:

It makes no difference whether you believe me or not.

你信不信我区别不大/都无所谓。

语法 Grammar in use

have +名词代替普通动词

在第18课的语法中,我们学习了完全动词have的一些用法,知道它既可以表示“具有”、“拥有”,又可以表示 eat, drink, enjoy, take等含义:

I have(got) a new car.

我有辆新汽车。

Have a good time!

祝你(们)玩得开心!

have的另一种用法是 have+名词代替普通动词表示“完成该动作”:

类似的动词还有dance, fight, look, rest, ride, talk, sleep, swim, wash等。一般完全动词的用法也适用于have:

Jim and I have just had a long talk.

我和吉姆刚进行过一次长谈。

I must have a wash before lunch.

午饭前我得洗一洗。(情态动词+have)

I had two dances with Lucy.

我和露西跳了两次舞。(可用复数形式)
