Intensive Reading Learning a Language • When we talk about learning a language like English, Japanese or Spanish, we speak and think as though the language in question were a fixed unchanging thing. We expect to learn it as we learned geometry or how to ride a bicycle – systematically, and with clear ultimate success. Many people subsequently give up when they discover just what a misconception this is. They have in fact embarked on an activity that could last the rest of their lives. The experience makes them realize that they are not only going to have to work very hard indeed if they want to succeed, but also that they are – in many cases – barely masters of the language they call their own “mother tongue”. • Studying any language is, in fact, an endless voyage. Each of the thousands of languages currently used in the world is a complex affair. complex affair.
Many languages do have a standard form – particularly on paper – and this is what we learn, but they probably also have a variety ofregional dialects and social styles, and many are the products of the historicalmingling of other languages. The English language is just such a hybrid. It began its career just under two thousand years ago as a form of ancient German, collided with a special kind of old French, was subjected to several waves of Latin and a flood of Greek, and since then has acquiredbits and pieces of every other language that its users have ever been in contact with. • 3 A second common misconception about language is that words have fixed and clear meanings. This is – fortunately or unfortunately – far from true. Take even the apparently simple and specific English word man. It seems clear enough; it refers to “an adult male human being”. Of course it does, but just consider for a moment the following sentences: • 1) There are several men missing in that chess set. • 2) The boat was manned entirely by women and children.
You might argue that these sentences are somewhat unnatural; certainly, they do not represent the everyday core meaning of the word man. They are, however, legitimateextensions of that core meaning, the second being especially interesting because it is a verb and not a noun, and suggests that we expect adult male human beings to serve as the crews of ships, not women and certainly not children. Part of the pleasure and genius of language may well arise out of this slight “misuse” of words. After all, if you call a person a cat or a cabbage, no literal identification is intended, but a great deal of meaning is nevertheless conveyed. • A third misconception about language claims that every language is – or should be – equally used and understood by all its practitioners everywhere. Certainly, users of the standard forms of English in the United Kingdom generally understand their equivalents in the United States; the degree of similarity between these two major forms of English is great. Dialect-users in these countries, however, have serious problems understanding each other, to the extent that they may wonder if they are actually using the same language. Someone form Brooklyn, New York, will have trouble with a Cockney form London; and old-style British Army colonel won’t do well in discussions with a Californianflower-boy. Yet they all belong within the vast community of 20th century World English.
Version • 当我们谈论语言学习，像英语、日语或西班牙语等的学习时，我们的言谈和思维都透露出我们所谈论的语言好像是一种固定不变的东西。我们期望学习语言像学习几何学或学习如何骑自行车一样――系统地学习，最终目标明确。很多人当发现这只是一个错误的想法时随后就放弃了。他们实际上踏上了一条能持续一生的旅程。这种经历使他们不仅意识到如果他们想成功他们就得非常努力，还意识到在多数情况下他们几乎不可能成为他们自称为是自己母语的语言的精通者。 • 实际上，学习任何语言都是一条没有止境的航行。世界上现在所用的上千种语言中的任何一种都是非常复杂的。很多语言确实有标准形式，尤其在书面上，而且这也是我们所学习的；它们可能还有各种各样的地方性方言和不同的社会形式，不仅如此，有很多还是其它语言的历史混合的产物。英语就是这样一种混合语言。英语两千年前是以古德语的形式存在的，然后受到古法语的冲击，又受到一些拉丁语和希腊语的影响；之后，由于英语的使用者又接触到其他一些语言，英语又受到那些语言的零零碎碎的影响。
关于语言的另外一个错误的看法是认为每个词都有明确固定的意思。这一点远非如此。就拿那个非常简单特定的英语单词man来说吧， 这个词的词义似乎足够明确了，指的是成年男性。当然是这样，但是，考虑一下下面的句子： • 1) There are several men missing in that chess set. • 2) The boat was manned entirely by women and children. • 你可能会争辩说这些句子有点不正常；当然，它们并不代表单词man的日常核心意思。然而它们也是其核心意思的合理引申；句子2)里的man尤其有意思，因为它是一个动词而非名词，并且暗示了我们期望成年男性来充当船上的工作人员，而不是妇女，当然更不是孩子。语言使用的聪明之处和乐趣就部分地来自于这种词的“无用”。毕竟，如果你叫一个人猫或白菜，并没打算表达猫或白菜的字面意思，但是很多隐含的意义已经传递出来了。 • 第三个对语言的误解声称每种语言都是――或应该是――被其各地的使用者同样应用和理解的。当然，在英国英语标准形式的使用者通常都理解其美国标准形式的使用者；英语的这两种主要形式有很大的相似度。然而，这两个国家的方言使用者却很难理解彼此，以致于他们会怀疑他们是否使用的是同样的语言。比如，一个从纽约布鲁克林来的人会很难理解一个伦敦佬；一个旧式的英国军队的上校会无法和一个加利福尼亚的嬉皮士进行讨论。但他们都属于这个20世纪世界英语的大社区。
Exercises • I. Reading Comprehension • Answer the following questions according to the text. • 1. What do people usually expect when they talk about learning a language? • When people talk about learning a language, they usually expect to learn it as they learn geometry or how to ride a bicycle , which are learned systematically, with clear ultimate success. In other words, they tend to think that language is a fixed unchanging thing. 2. What do they eventually discover? They may eventually discover their view of language learning is wrong. Language learning is a life-long activity, and requires very hard work if they want to succeed. 3. In what sense is the statement that studying any language is an endless voyage true? Studying a language is an endless voyage because any natural human language is a complex affair with many varieties of regional dialects, social styles and a long historical heritage. 4. Why does the writer say that the English language is a hybrid? The English language has mingled with many other languages in its development. It originated from a form of ancient German, was later mixed with Old English and was influenced by many other languages such as Latin and Greek.
5. What is the purpose of the two example sentences cited in the article? • The purpose of the two examples is to indicate that the meaning of a word is not always the same. Words may generate meanings that are legitimate extensions of their core meaning. 6. What can be the effect of a slight “misuse” of words? Unnatural though it may seem to some people, a slight “misuse” of words can give them extra meanings which are legitimate extensions of their core meanings. It is part of the reason why language is so wonderful and pleasurable. 7. What is the lesson that you, as a language learner, can draw from this text? This is an open-ended question. To help the students sort out the ideas discussed in the text, the teacher can put the tree misconceptions on the board. Ask the students for opinions as to how they may be proved wrong. For example, for the first misconception that language learning is just like learning geometry or something like it, with clear ultimate success, the following points may be drawn from the text: work hard and be patient in one’s language study, be systematic and realistic in planning one’s study, etc.

1．About three hundred and fifty million people use the English language as a mother tongue: about one-tenth of the world’s population, scattered across every continent and surpassed in numbers only by the speakers of the many varieties of Chinese. Three- quarters of the world’s mail, and its telexes and cables, are in English. So are more than half the world’s technical and scientific periodicals: it is the language of technology from Silicon Valley to Shanghai. English is the medium for eighty percent of the information stored in the world’s computers. Nearly half of all thebusiness deals in Europe are conducted in English. It is also the language of sports: the official language of the Olympics. Five of the largest broadcasting companies in the world (CBS, NBC, ABC, BBC, CBC) transmit in English to audiences that regularly exceed one hundred million.
2．To people in Africa, Asia, and South America, English is an important foreign language to master, not merely because it is the language of Britain or the United States, but because it provides ready access to world scholarship and world trade. It is understood more widely than any other language. • 3．It’s true, then that a great many people--- and a great many peoples--- are involved in the use of English. Millions of men and women in four continents have English as their first language, and millions in every part of the world use it as their second or foreign language. This gives us some idea of the importance of English, and it shows both the United States and Britain that the language is not the possession of these two nations alone. It is also the property of the Canadian and the Indian, the Australian and the Nigerian. It belongs to all those who use it.
Version • 世界语言 • 大约有3亿5千万人以英语为母语：约占世界人口的1/10，且发布于全球各个大陆，在数量上仅次于操各种华语的华人。全世界3/4的邮件以及直通电报和海底电报均使用英语。全世界一半以上的科技期刊所用的语言也是英语：从硅谷到上海，科技界使用的也是英语。全球电脑中80%的信息都是用英语储存的。欧洲几乎一半的商业交易都是用英语进行的。英语还是体育界的语言：奥林匹克的官方语言是英语。世界上5家最大的广播公司（CBS, NBC, ABC, BBC, CBC）用英语播送节目，其听众人数通常超过1亿。 • 对于非洲；亚洲和南美洲人来说，英语是要掌握的一门重要外语，这并不仅仅因为英语是英国和美国的语言，而是因为它使人们容易使用世界学术成就和进行世界贸易。它比其他任何语言都更为普及。 • 因此，有一点是正确的：许许多多的人---许许多多的民族---都在使用英语。全球4个大陆上有无数的人把英语作为第一语言，世界各地还有无数的人把英语作为第二语言或者外语使用。这就使得我们对于英语的重要性有了一些认识，它也向英国和美国表明：英语并不仅仅归这两个国家所有。英语也是加拿大人；印度人；澳大利亚人和尼尔利亚人的通用语言。它属于所有使用英语的人们。
