本课简介
人们普遍认为在每一个词都有其正确的词意。词典和语法书是我们寻求词意和用法的至上权威,但是我 们甚少去询问词典和语法的编著者以何为据。在本篇课文中,作者详细介绍了词典编写的过程,并且强调编 写词典不是对词的意思,建立权威的解释,而是竭尽所能记录下每一个词对其过去的作者而言是何意思。世 界在变化,语言也在变化,我们不得不赋予旧词以新的解释、新的用法,因些词典需要增补新的内容。
本课主要语言点

  1. …dictionaries and grammars are the supreme authority in matters of meaning and usage. 本句中 in matters of 也可用 in the matter of,意思是“在……方面”“就……而论” , ,如:
  1)It was impossible for them to reach an agreement because they had too many divergences in matters of detail. (他们不可能达成协议,因为在细节问题上,他们有太多的分歧。 ) http//:www.edu-edu.com.cn

  2)He is considered an expert in the matter of intellectual property.(他被看作是知识产权方面的专家。 )
  3)He would suffer heavy losses in matters of money if he continued to believe those dishonest people. (如果他继续相信那些不诚实的人,他会遭受巨大的经济损失。 )
  2. Few people ask by what authority the writers of dictionaries and grammars say what they say. 句子中的 few 表示否定,意思是“很少的,几乎没有的” ,如果用 a few 则表示肯定,意思是“有些, 几个” 。如:
  1) Very few people survived the explosion.(在爆炸中幸存的人很少。 )
  2) Many of us tried but very few succeeded .(我们许多人都试了,但成功者甚少。 )
  3) He will try it a few more times.(他会再试几次。 )
  4) A few of my friends speak English.(我的朋友中有几个人能讲英语。 ) by 在本句
