泰坦尼克号电影中的英语语法:

The 1997 film Titanic is one of the most popular movies ever made. It won many film awards and was one of the highest-grossing films in movie history.

The film is a love story set against the sinking of the famous ship in 1912. It has many memorable scenes. Some of them can teach you important ideas about English grammar.

Today, we will explore one short scene from 
Today, we will explore one short scene from “Titanic” to teach you about tag questions and polite forms of speaking.
Today, we will explore one short scene to teach you about tag questions and polite forms of speaking. A tag question is a short question added to a statement.

#1 Tag questions

In our scene, Jack, played by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, eats dinner with a group of rich people. DiCaprio does not come from a wealthy background – just the opposite, in fact. He does not have a home.

A wealthy woman asks Jack a difficult question. She asks if he enjoys his homeless life.

You can hear the tense silence after her question.

“And you find that sort of rootless existence appealing, do you?”

“Well, yes, ma’am, I do.”

Let’s examine this short exchange.

We will begin with the woman’s question.

The woman’s question is a kind of tag question.

First, she makes a statement:

“And you find that sort of rootless existence appealing”

Notice that the main verb is find.

The woman follows the statement with a tag question:

“do you?”

If English speakers make a statement that uses a verb other than be, then the tag question often uses an auxiliary verb such as do or have. In this case, the woman made a statement using the verb find, and she used the auxiliary verb do in the tag question.

This is just one form that a tag question can take. If you want to learn more about different kinds of tag questions, you can read the story on our website, ienglishcn.com.

#2 Polite forms of address, word order

Now let’s continue with the scene.

Think about DiCaprio’s response to the woman’s question.

DiCaprio responds by saying:

“Well, yes, ma’am, I do.”

The order of DiCaprio’s words is important.

DiCaprio begins with the word well. Well is a common word that has many uses. Speakers often use well when giving an explanation.

DiCaprio then says yes, a term of agreement.

The next word is ma’am.

Ma’am is a polite term. Americans generally use it to speak to a woman who they do not know.

The Online Etymology Dictionary notes that in the United States, speakers generally use ma’am in answers – after the word yes or the word no.

In other words, you are more likely to hear Americans say yes, ma’am, or no, ma’am. Americans do not use the term ma’am along with a woman’s name.

DiCaprio uses the words well, yes, ma’am … to show politeness, and to show that an explanation is coming.

DiCaprio could have responded in a different, more direct way, as in:

“And you find that sort of rootless existence appealing, do you?”

“Yes, I do.”

Such a statement would have been a little too strong. That is why DiCaprio did not say it.

Closing thoughts

The point of this story is to show you that you can learn about culture and grammar by watching films or television shows. Even short clips can give you a lot of information.

When watching these films or shows, try asking yourself some questions. Why do the speakers say the things they do? Could they change the way they say their lines? These can be difficult questions to answer, but you will learn a lot by thinking about them.

A word of advice: It helps if you choose a clip from something that you like – perhaps a film or a show that you have seen before.

翻译文如下:
1997年的电影《泰坦尼克号》是有史以来最受欢迎的电影之一。它赢得了许多电影奖项,是电影史上票房最高的电影之一。

这部电影是一部爱情故事,与1912年那艘著名的船沉没事件为根据。它有许多令人难忘的场景。他们中的一些人可以教你关于英语语法的重要思想。

Today, we will explore one short scene from 
今天,我们将探索”泰坦尼克号”的一个简短场景,教你关于标签问题和礼貌的说话方式。
今天,我们将探索一个简短的场景,教你关于标签问题和礼貌的说话形式。标记问题是添加到语句的简短问题。

#1标签问题

在我们的场景中,由演员莱昂纳多·迪卡普里奥饰演的杰克与一群富人共进晚餐。迪卡普里奥并非来自富裕背景——事实上恰恰相反。他没有家。

一个富有的女人问杰克一个难题。她问他是否喜欢他无家可归的生活。

你可以听到她提问后紧张的沉默。

“你发现那种无根的存在有吸引力, 你呢?

“嗯, 是的, 夫人, 我做。

让我们来研究一下这个简短的交换。

我们将从女人的问题开始。

女人的问题就是个标签问题。

首先,她发表声明:

“你发现那种无根的存在很吸引人”

请注意,主动词是find。

该女子在陈述后提出了一个标签问题:

“你呢?

如果说英语的人使用动词而不是 是,那么标记问题通常使用辅助动词,如做或有。在这种情况下,该妇女使用动词 find 做了一个语句,并在标记问题中使用了辅助动词 do。

这只是标记问题可以采取的一种形式。如果您想了解有关不同标签问题的信息,您可以在我们的网站上阅读故事,ienglishcn.com。

#2礼貌的地址形式,字顺序

现在,让我们继续场景。

想想迪卡普里奥对女人问题的回答。

迪卡普里奥回应说:

“嗯, 是的, 夫人, 我做。

迪卡普里奥的话顺序很重要。

迪卡普里奥以”好”一词开头。嗯,这是一个常见的词,有很多用途。演讲者在给出解释时通常使用得很好。

迪卡普里奥然后说是的,一个协议条款。

下一个词是夫人。

夫人是一个礼貌的术语。美国人通常用它来与一个他们不了解的女人交谈。

《在线词源词典》指出,在美国,演讲者通常使用夫人的回答——在”是”或”否”之后。

换句话说,你更有可能听到美国人说是,夫人,或者不是,夫人。美国人不会把”夫人”这个词和女人的名字一起使用。

迪卡普里奥用好的话, 是的, 夫人…以显示礼貌,并表明一个解释来了。

迪卡普里奥本可以以不同、更直接的方式做出回应,如:

“你发现那种无根的存在有吸引力, 你呢?

“是的, 我做。

这样的声明会有点太强烈了。这就是为什么迪卡普里奥没有说。

结束想法

这个故事的要点是告诉你,你可以通过看电影或电视节目来了解文化和语法。即使是短片也可以给你很多信息。

当观看这些电影或节目时,试着问自己一些问题。为什么演讲者要说出他们做的事情?他们能改变他们说话的方式吗?这些问题可能很难回答,但通过思考这些问题,你会学到很多东西。

建议:如果你从你喜欢的东西中选择一个片段——也许是一部电影或一个你看过的节目——会很有帮助。
