20 2 6 Task 1 当然, 戴比 ( 或林恩 ) 的职业成就并不是改名带来的, 但是这肯定给她带来了好处,虽说改名仅使她对自 己的才能增加了一点点自信。社会科学家认为你叫 什么名字会影响你的生活。自古至今,名字不仅被 用来识别人,而且也被用来描述人。《圣经》上说: “ ······ 人如其名 ······ ” ,此外韦伯斯特大词典也对名字 做了如下的定义: “ 表达某种特点的一个或几个字, 这种特点被认为反映了某人或某事的本质,或描述 了某人某事,常表示嘉许或不赞成的意思。 ” 请好好 注意这几个词: “ 嘉许或不赞成 ” 。不管是好是

23 2 6 Naturally, the name change didn’t cause Debbie / Lynne’s professional achievement – but it surely helped if only by adding a bit of self-confidence to her talents. Social scientists say that what you’re called can affect your life. Throughout history, names have not merely identified people but also described them. “…As his name is, so is he…” says the Bible, and Webster’s Dictionary includes the following definition of name: “a word or words expressing some quality considered characteristic or descriptive of a person or a thing, often expressing approval or disapproval”. Note well “approval or disapproval”. For better or worse, qualities such as friendliness Check Yourself (to be continued)

25 2 6 Task 2 在一所本地大学放春假期间,我和朋友到市中心去 购物。但是我们首先把自己打扮得几乎连朋友和家 人都认不出来。我们穿上了与天气稍稍不配的衣服, 很干净但没有熨过。很明显,大多数到这个地区来 的游客都不会穿这种式样的衣服。我们提着塑料袋, 里面装有差得难以启齿的物品。我俩都有点衣冠不 整。我的朋友在 T 恤衫外面套了一件褪了色的全棉衬 衣,还在宽松的长运动裤外面套了一条起皱的裙子。 我戴着一顶羊毛帽子把头发掩盖住,穿着一件老式 的外套,并戴着一副夹着遮阳墨镜片的眼 镜。 Check Yourself

27 2 6 During spring break from a local college, my friend and I went downtown to shop. First, however, we made ourselves virtually unrecognizable to our friends and even to our families. We wore clothing slightly inappropriate for the weather, clean but not ironed, clearly not the styles worn by most visitors to the area. We carried plastic bags of nameless possessions. Both of us were slightly untidy. My friend wore a faded cotton shirt over a T-shirt and a wrinkled skirt over sweat pants. I wore a wool hat that concealed my hair and an unfashionable coat and glasses with sun shades that clipped on. Check Yourself Task 2
