第十一部 第十二課: gibberish , google

 
  • 李華在房門上發現了一張紙條,可是字體寫的很潦草,看不清寫的是什麼,也不知道是誰寫的.今天李華會學到兩個常用語: gibberishgoogle
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 哎,Larry,你能不能幫我看看這張字條上到底寫些什麼啊?
  • I can't read it, either. It looks like gibberish to me. Are you sure someone didn't leave it as a joke?
  • 為什麼有人要跟我開玩笑留這張字條?你說這看起來像 gibberish.那是什麼語言啊?
  • Gibberish means language that doesn't make any sense.
  • Gibberish 就是寫得亂七八糟,沒人看得懂的意思.那不就是胡言亂語嗎?為什麼有人要寫這張奇怪的字條,還放在我的門上呢?
  • I don't know. That doesn't make any sense to me.
  • 我想啊這字條應該很重要,不然這個人不會千里迢迢到我的樓裡,在我門上留下這張字條。
  • Well, it wasn't important enough for them to write in plain English. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
  • 那倒也是喔,要是很重要,這個人就應該寫清楚一點嘛!我只希望啊這個留字條的人不要認為我沒禮貌,不給他回覆。
  • Hey, it's not your fault that the note was all gibberish. Besides, if it's really important, whoever it is will try to contact you again.
  • 沒錯,如果真有什麼重要的事,這個人啊會再和我聯繫的.對了, Larry,你知道我還在哪裡見過這種寫得亂七八糟的東西嗎?
  • No, but I'm sure you're going to tell me.
  • 一些美國人啊喜歡在身上刺中文刺青或穿著帶有中文字的衣服.可是有時候這些中文根本就不對,看不清是什麼字.所以啊也算是 gibberish。
  • Yeah, I've seen people do that, too. But the truth is, I saw the same thing in China: People would wear clothes with English writing on them that was pure gibberish.
  • 嘿嘿,這啊真有意思.我想都是因為大家對外國語言似懂非懂吧?
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 嘿,Larry,又有人在我門上留條了,不過這一次啊,還有個公司商標在上面.你聽說過一個叫 West 的公司嗎?
  • No, I've never heard of it, but you can find out what sort of company it is by googling it.
  • 你要我做什麼? Google?那是什麼意思啊?
  • You know that there is an internet search engine called Google, right?
  • 我當然知道啊,因特網的搜索引擎 Google.中文叫古狗(谷歌)網站,我經常用的啊。
  • Well, people use it so often, that now it has become a verb meaning to do an internet search using Google.
  • 哦~,因為大家經常用古狗網來查詢,所以現在啊 google 已經成了一個動詞,意思就是上網用古狗網查資料或信息!你是要我上網去 google 一下,查查這家公司啊?
  • That's my advice. It will only take a minute. Googling stuff is so convenient. I can't imagine what life was like before Google.
  • 就是啊,要是從前啊找一家公司,不知道要花多少時間翻電話本,現在只要上網,一下子就找到了喔。
  • Sometimes when you google something, you get a lot of unnecessary information, but you can look through it relatively quickly.
  • 沒錯,我剛開始 google 的時候啊,我總覺得不到點上.現在我看誰都得用 google,因為它實在是很方便.好,我現在就上網來看看這家 West 公司到底是做什麼的。
  • Good luck. I hope you get an answer to the question of who has been leaving mysterious notes full of gibberish on your door.
  • 哎,Larry,要是啊我 google 碰到問題,我還得請你幫忙哦!
  • Oh, google is so easy, you won't have any problems.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語,第一個是: gibberish,就是「寫的亂七八糟,看不清的字」,或者是「胡言亂語,讓人聽不懂得話」.另一個常用語是: google,就是指「上網查某個信息或資料」。
