Cathy: Hey. There she is. Morning, Alice. Alice: Oh. Morning, Cathy. C: How did it go yesterday? Tell me. A: Well... It was not something I expected, but ended up great, I guess.〈g〉 C: What happened, exactly? Come on! A: Okay. We were meeting together at a movie theater... C: Oh? He didn't pick you up? He doesn't drive? A: Sure he does. It's just that his parents don't let him drive alone for now. C: Okay. Then? A: I got there a bit early, so waited for him... drinking some coffee... and when I saw him coming up, my brain stopped... The next moment, he was standing in front of me and saying "Hi", smiling. C: Wow! A: ... Well, I was just swept off my feet by his very cool line of "Hi" and ... I... C: Alice? A: I... spilled coffee on my clothes... C: Oh, no! You okay? Didn't get burned? A: No, it wasn't that hot any more, but... C: I know how you feel, Alice... I'd rather die, if I were you... A: Yeah, I was embarrassed and almost started to cry, actually. But, Cathy, he said to me this way, as he took his jacket off and handed it to me. "Don't you worry. You wanna come to my place to get it cleaned, okay? I know my mom's expecting you to come and would be more than happy to take care of this. And besides, I wanna spend some more time with you. Alice, is it okay to call my mom and ask her to pick us up?" ... I think I'm in love, Cathy... C: He's so sweet! No wonder you never looked better... Well, Alice... I wanna ask you something... He has any brothers? A: Oh, come on! お時間ありましたら、お願い致します。

おはようございます! また細かくなるかもしれませんが、気になったところを二つだけ・・・。 Cathy: Hey. There she is. Morning, Alice 最初のここですが、Cathyの他に何人かといて 「ほら、彼女が来たよ」って感じなのでしょうか? もし、Cathyが1人で居るところにAliceが来て、「あら、来たわね」みたいなニュアンスだと、 There you are. を使うかな、と思ったのですが・・・。 前者だろうな、とは思うのですが、後の会話がずっと二人なので気になって一応書いてみました。 meeting together 二人っきりの待ち合わせの時に、あまりこの使い方はしないように思います。 meeting up とかだと自然かなぁと。 あと、これは完全に私が個人的に感じた印象ですが、 You wanna come to my place to get it cleaned, okay? この台詞が妙に強引というか勝手というか・・・な感じがしました。 多分okayのせいでしょうか? okayをつけないほうが、「よかったら来ない?」と相手の意思を気遣ってる印象が出るかもしれません。 うーん、実際に話す時のイントネーションもありますが、単に私がこういう言い方されるのが嫌だからなのかも・・・。 すごい簡単にですが、ご参考まで^^*

akijakeさん、こんにちは。 返信遅くなって申し訳ありません! 回答ありがとうございます。 >Hey. There she is. すみません、これは、 ちょっと離れたところからAliceを見つけて、”あ、来た来た!”の感じです。 そのあと、距離が近づいて"Morning..."です。 書き方悪いですね。 ごめんなさい。 (ちなみにここは2人だけの設定です) >meeting up とかだと自然かなぁと >この台詞が妙に強引というか勝手というか >okayをつけないほうが ありがとうございます! 場面を自分なりに想像して書いているので、 思い込んでいるところも多々あります。 ご意見をいただくことで、自分が書いたものに対して 違った見方をすることができます。 …なんだか、楽しいです。^^ お忙しいなか、いつも本当にありがとうございます! それでは!^^

添削と言うほどでもない参考意見ですが… 1行目の Cathy: Hey. There she is. Morning, Alice. ですが、 もし「あぁ、いたいた。」と相手を探していて今見つけたというニュアンスでしたら、 Hey を使うよりは Oh,there she is. とOh を使うと自分に呟いているような表現になると思います。 もし独り言ではなく、相手に向けている言葉なのでしたら There you are. にすると自然かもしれません。 4行目のIt was not something I expected, but ended up great, I guess. では、 いきなり it が使われ、それが何を指すのかが分かりづらく少しだけ引っかかりました。 いっそ Something を文頭に持ってきて Something I didn't expect happened, but... なんてやるとより伝わりやすくなるかなぁなんて思いますが、好みの問題かもしれません(^^) 同じく好みの問題かもしれないのですが、 20行目、But, Cathy, he said to me this way, as he took his jacket off and handed it to me. の所は he said to me this way と、「こう言ったの」と言っていますのでどう言ったかがその直後に来ると 会話がよりスムーズになる気がします。 But, Cathy, as he took off his jacket and handed it to me, he said to me this way; ジャケットを脱いで…の下りを現在進行形にしてもまたいいかもしれません。

  • 【英語】作文の添削お願いします 

    テーマ:印象に残っている贈り物 Most impressing present in my life is a watch that my father gave me when I passed the exam to enter the high school. My father used the watch before I was born, and he wouldn't put away it even though he was given a new watch by my mother and sister. I think the watch will have been very important for my father. So, I was very surprised when he gave it to me. At first, I hesitated to receive it, but I received it in the end because my father said with smiling that "I use this new watch". The watch was what my mother and sister gave him. My watch and my father's watch is very different because mine is very old and father's is new. However both of them are filled with love of my family. 文法や構成について指摘してください。

  • クエスチョンマークをつけるだけの疑問文

    Cathyが半年以上も前に求職の申し込みをした会社から突然電話が来て、面接を行う知らせを受け、喜んですぐさま夫のSimonの職場に電話をかけて、夫に電話をかけ直させる場面の会話です。 Simon:Hello darling. You want me to call you back? Cathy: Guess what? I've got an interview with Online. Simon: That's wonderful news! Hello? Speak louder. I'm on my mobile. Cathy: You know I sent my CV to them six months ago? Well this morning I was doing the housework the phone rang. It was the personal director himself. He said he wants me to go to York next week. I'm so excited! I really wasn't expecting this. Simon: Darling, I must go. Tell me all about it this evening. Goodbye. そこで質問です。英語では疑問文を作る場合、動詞がbe動詞や助動詞の場合は主語と倒置し、それ以外は頭にdoをつけますが、Cathyのセリフで“You know I sent my CV to them six months ago?”のところは、 ピリオドをクエスチョンマークに変えただけですが、 こういう疑問文はよく用いられるんでしょうか? それから、携帯電話のことは cell-phoneも全く同じように使えるんでしょうか? また、personal directorは前の会話では human resourses managerという用語が使われていましたが、directorとmanagerは何が違うんでしょうか?
