    或你對於偵探故事有興趣,你最好的選擇就是

  • Allan Poe and Arthur Conan Doyle. Now, you might not be familiar with the name Arthur

    愛倫波和柯南道爾的書。現在,你或許對於這個名字

  • Conan Doyle, but you are probably familiar with the name Sherlock Holmes. And Arthur

    柯南道爾不是那麼熟悉,但是你很有可能對於福爾摩斯這個名義很熟。而

  • Conan Doyle is, actually, the author of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Now, these two books here,

    柯南道爾其實就是福爾摩斯故事的作者。現在,這邊的這兩本書

  • "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" by Edgar Allan Poe and "Sherlock Holmes Short Stories" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    愛倫波的「顫慄的角落」和柯南道爾博士的「福爾摩斯探案故事」

  • are both short story collections. So if you feel a

    都是短篇故事集。如果你覺得

  • little bit intimidated by reading a complete novel, another thing that's great about these

    要看一整本的小說覺得很可怕,這兩本書很棒的一點就是

  • is a lot of these stories are five pages, six pages. So you can sit down -- you can

    很多故事都只有五、六頁。所以你可以坐下來-你可以

  • learn a lot of vocabulary, a lot of grammatical structure just with six pages of reading,

    學到許多單字,許多文法結構,就只要在這六頁的閱讀裡面就有了

  • and you'll feel that you have read a complete story, okay?

    而且你感覺你已經讀完了一篇完整的故事,對吧?

  • So, again, I really, really recommend these, especially if you're into murder mysteries,

    所以,再說一下,我真的真的很推薦這些,尤其如果你喜歡謀殺故事

  • detective fiction, and you want something that is very short but gives you enough so

    偵探故事,而且你想要短但是又可以提供你夠多

  • that you can learn a lot. And what I'm going to do now is, actually, give you guys ten

    能學習的東西。接下我要做的其實是,給你們十個

  • vocabulary words that I have chosen from these two books, and I'll give you the definitions.

    我從這兩本書裡面選出來的單字,而且我還會給你定義

  • We'll talk about some examples, and then you can finish the quiz and test your understanding as usual.

    我們也會談一些例子,然後你可以一如往常的去做測驗來確認你了解了沒

  • All right. Let's get to it. Okay, so the first word that we have here

    好!讓我們開始吧。好,所以這邊的第一個字

  • is "disturb". Now, "disturb" is a verb which means to interrupt someone or to make someone

    是「擾亂」。現在「擾亂」是一個動詞,意味著打斷他人或者是讓他人感覺到

  • nervous or a little scared. So for example, if you see a bloody crime, like in a Sherlock

    緊張或是一點點害怕。例如,如果你目睹了一場血案,就像福爾摩斯故事裡的一樣

  • Holmes story, that might disturb you; it might make you feel a little weird, a little nervous.

    這或許擾亂你的心;它也或許可以讓我覺得有點奇怪、有點緊張

  • Someone can also come in and "disturb" you while you are working.

    一個人也可以跑進來然後當你工作的時候「打擾」了你

  • The next word is "horizon". "Horizon" is a noun, and when you think of a picture of the

    下一個字是「地平線」。「地平線」是一個名詞,當你想像一下海洋的圖片

  • ocean, of the sea, and you think of the sun in the back, the "horizon" is that line; it's

    你就會想到太陽在海的後面,「地平線」就是那條線

  • the line where the land or the sea seems to meet the sky. Okay? So it's that line in a

    陸地或是海洋和天空相接的那條線,懂了嗎?所以就是圖片中的那

  • picture. The next word is "immense". This is an excellent

    條線。下一個字是「廣大的」。這是一個超棒的

  • vocabulary word. This is an adjective which just means extremely large. So you can say,

    單字。這是一個形容詞,意味著超級的大。所以你可以這樣說

  • "The buildings in New York are immense" -- extremely large.

    「紐約的高樓大廈都超巨大的」-超級的大

  • The next word is "mercy", which is a noun. Now, "mercy" is something that you show towards

    下一個字是「寬恕」,是一個名詞。現在「寬恕」是你對某個人所展現的

  • a person or that you have for someone. So "mercy" is "kindness and a willingness to

    或是你要給某人的東西。所以「寬恕」是「仁慈和願意去

  • forgive". So for example, if you're fighting with someone and you're beating them and they

    原諒。」所以這有個例子,如果你在跟人打架,而且你正在毆打他們,然後他們

  • say, "Stop! Stop! Stop! Have mercy! Show me mercy!" This means, like, "Show sympathy for

    說「停!停手!停手!有點寬恕之心!原諒我吧!」這就代表,像是「對我展現你的同情!

  • me! Be kind! Please forgive me! I give up!" Okay? You might see this a lot in, like, war

    親切一點!請原諒我!我放棄了!」懂了嗎?你或許會很常在這看到,像是,戰爭

  • movies and stuff like Gladiator and all that stuff. Okay.

    電影或是鬥劍士之類的還有類似的東西。

  • "Misery", "misery" is a noun. The adjective is "miserable". So "misery" just means "great

    「悲慘」、「悲慘」是一個名詞。形容詞是「悲慘的」。所以「悲慘」就是表示「很大的

  • unhappiness", so you can live in "misery". And there's actually a book by Stephen King

    不幸」,所以你可以活在「悲慘」的生活之中。而且其實有一本史蒂芬金的書

  • of the same title, so you can check that out if you're into Stephen King and stuff like

    就是同個名字,所以你可以查查看如果你對史蒂芬金或是類似的東西有興趣的話

  • that. So the next word is "consult". This comes

    接下來下一個字是「諮詢」。這是從

  • from "consultation", which is the noun form. "Consult" is to ask for advice or information.

    「諮詢」這個字來的,也就是從名詞來的。「諮詢」就是尋求建議或者是訊息

  • So in the Sherlock Holmes stories, people with problems come to consult with Sherlock

    所以在福爾摩斯故事集裡面,有問題的人會去尋求福爾摩斯的諮詢

  • Holmes. If you are having some kind of difficulty, some kind of physical illness, you should

    如果你有某種的困難,某種的生理疾病,你應該

  • probably consult a doctor. The next word is "forge". Now, to "forge"

    或許要跟一位醫生諮詢。下一個字是「偽造」。現在,「偽造」

  • is to illegally copy something. Usually, we talk about "forging money" or "forging a person's

    就是違法的拷貝。通常,我們說「偽造錢幣」或是「偽造某人的

  • signature". So maybe when you were a child and you had to get permission to go somewhere,

    簽名」。所以或許當你是一個小孩的時候,你必須得到允許才能去別的地方

  • but you knew your parents would not let you go there, maybe you would forge your parents'

    但是你知道你的家長不會讓你去,或許你就會違法地偽造你父母親的

  • signature illegally -- copy it, essentially. Don't do that.

    簽名-其實就是複製。不要這樣做

  • "Soil" -- okay. "Soil", we're talking about the noun, which is the top layer of earth

    「土壤」-好。「土壤」,我們在談的是名詞,地球表面最上層的植被

  • where plants grow. So if you want to start a garden in your house, you have to go and

    所以如果你想要在你家建一座花園,你必須去

  • buy some soil, okay? "Tremble": This is a verb which means "to

    買一些土壤,懂了嗎?「顫抖」,這是一個動詞代表

  • shake because of worry or fear or excitement". You can also tremble because you're cold,

    因為擔心、恐懼或是刺激而搖晃」。你也可以因為很冷而顫抖

  • okay? Very, very useful verb. And finally, a word that most of my students

    懂了?非常非常好用的動詞。然後最後一個,一個我一生中大部分學生

  • in my life have had a difficult time pronouncing, and it's "thoroughly", "thoroughly". So "thur-oh-ly".

    都有困難唸好這個字。而且這個字是「徹底地」、「徹底地」。就是「thur-oh-ly」

  • Okay? This is an adverb which means "completely" or "wholly". So "I was thoroughly surprised

    懂了嗎?這是一個副詞,意思是「完全地」或是「整個」。所以「聽到這個新聞

  • to hear the news" -- completely. "The police searched the room thoroughly", okay?

    我被徹底的嚇呆了」-完全地。「警方徹底地搜索這個房間」,懂了嗎?

  • So let's just do a quick listen and repeat with pronunciation of this vocab, guys. So

    所以來快速的一個聽、重複發音的單字練習。所以

  • from the top: disturb, horizon, immense, mercy, misery, consult, forge, soil, tremble, thoroughly.

    從最上面開始:紛擾、地平線、廣大的、寬恕、悲慘、諮詢、偽造、土壤、顫抖、徹底地

  • Okay, now that you have looked at these vocabulary items, you might be interested to know, "Where

    好,現在你已經看過這些單字了,你或許想要知道,「哪裡

  • can I get the books that Alex is talking about?" Attached to this video, you will find a link

    可以取得那些艾力克斯在講的書?」附在影片的,你就會看到一個亞馬遜網頁

  • to the Amazon website. You will also find a link to a list of authors who are in the

    的連結。你也會找到一個連結有一串作者的作品是在

  • public domain. Now, what this means is that there are authors whose works, whose fiction

    公領域。現在,也就是說這些作者的作品、小說

    是每個人都可在網路上自由取得來閱讀的因為版權已經太古老了。而且
