201612191648常見中式英文(九十四)

中式英文:

I have a hobby of collecting stamps.

(我有集郵的興趣。) 

改錯研析:

1. I collect stamps as a hobby.

2. My hobby is stamp collecting.

(1) have a hobby of doing something 應為中文「有‥‥的興趣」直譯而來,是廣為流行的「中式英文」,英文無此用法。

(2) 「集郵」是 collect stamps(動詞片語),可以套用 do something as a hobby 寫成 I collect stamps as a hobby.。 

(3) 「集郵」的名詞形態是 stamp collecting (=philately),因此不應以「動名詞片語」collecting stamps 來表示。

(4) 如果興趣廣泛,不只集郵一項,可以講

a. One of my hobbies is stamp collecting.

b. Stamp collecting is a hobby of mine.

(5) 如果從興趣晉身成為專業人士或業餘玩家,可用 stamp collector 來表示:

I am a stamp collector.
