NCE2-L41 Do you call that a hat? 你把那个叫帽子吗?PPT

What kind of shopping does the writer enjoy,do you think?

‘Do you call that a hat?’I said to my wife.

‘You needn’t be so rude about it,’my wife answered as she looked at herself in

the mirror.

I sat down on one of those modern chairs with holes in it and waited. We had

been in the hat shop for half an hour and my wife was still in front of the mirror.

‘We must’t buy things we don’t need,’I remarked suddenly.I regretted saying

it almost at once.

‘You needn’t have said that,’my wife answered.‘I needn’t remind you of that

terrible tie you bought yesterday.’

‘I find it beautiful,’I said.‘A man can never have too many ties.’

‘And a woman can’t have too hats,’she answered.

Ten minutes later we walked out of the shop together.My wife was wearing a

hat that looked like a lighthouse!

Notes on the text 课文注释

1 …needn’t be so rude…,英语中实际上有两个need.一个是普通动词need;另一个是情态动词need.情态动词的need 和can,may 等情态动词一样,后接动词原形,但只用于否定和疑问句,肯定句用must,have to,ought to 或should.

2 I regretted saying …,regret 后接动名词表示对所做过的事感到遗憾。

3 We mustn’t buy things we don’t need.我们不应该买我们不需要的东西。句中的need

是普通动词,当“需要”讲。

4 You needn’t have said that…

need’t have done表示本来用不着做某事,而实际上已经做了。

5 I need’t remind you of that terrible tie you bought yesterday.我也不必提醒你昨天买

的那条糟糕透了的领带。remind sb.of sth.是“提醒某人想起某事”的意思。

6 I find it beartiful,我觉得它好看。句中的beautiful用来补充说明宾语it,在语法上称作宾语补足语。

7 A man can never have too many ties.男人有多少领带也不会嫌多。

参考译文

“你把那个叫帽子吗?”我对妻子说。

“你说话没必要这样不客气,”我的妻子边回答边照着镜子。

我坐在一个新式的满是网眼儿的椅子上,等待着。我们在这家帽店已经呆了半个小时了,而我的妻子仍在镜子面前。

“我们不应该买我们不需要的东西,”我突然发表意见,但马上又后悔说了这话。

“你没必要这么说,”我妻子回答说,“我也不必提醒你昨天买的那条糟糕透了的领带。”

“我觉得它好看,”我说,“男人有多少领带也不会嫌多。”

“女人有多少帽子也不嫌多。”她回答。

10分钟以后,我们一道走出了商店。我妻子戴着一顶像灯塔一样的帽子。
