ageで年齢を表す

We have a wide range of courses for students to choose from in the summer. Our first session runs from June 13th- June 26th. It's for children and teenages up to age 18 . That course is held at our Oxbury Campus in the country. Then there are two adult course, for ages 19 and up, which run for three weeks from June 27th to July 17th. Ther are held at the university campus in Grenfeld. We also have a young adults' course for ages 16-19, which starts July 4th and ends on July 17th. It's also held at the Grenfeld campus. All of our courses accept students at all levels. 上記の英文について質問があります。 up to age 18は agesとなっていないのに、for ages 19のほうは agesになっています。age を単数形にしたり、複数形にしたりするのは、どういうときですか? 19 and upのupは品詞は何で、意味はなんですか? 形容詞のagedに関しては、つぎのような言い方をします。 Under the prolonged recession in Japan, about 10% of people aged 15 to 24 are jobless and about 6 % of people aged 25 to 34 are unemployed, following by 4.7 % of people aged 35 through 44. age 年齢の表し方を説明しているサイトをご存知ですか? また、英語での年齢の説明のしかたをしている場所はありませんか? 理解がとても曖昧で困っています。 調べたこととしましては、 age 名詞 U , C 年齢、年(人だけでなく、動物、物にも用いる) 例 at your age, people of all ages, look one's age、He is nie years of age.= He is nie ( years old) ,at the age of..., U 成年;規定の年齢 be [come] of age, the age for a driver's license, be of driving age, U 高齢、老齢(通例65歳以上) (集合的に)老人たち youth and age、 しばしば Age C 「通例単数形で」...時代、時期 the Iron Age 「age 英語 年齢」などのキーワードでいろいろ検索しましたが、わからないままです。 わかる方がいましたら、回答よろしくお願いいたします。

age は可算・不可算微妙なところはありますが、 何か特定の年齢を表しているなら可算的だと思っていいです。 ages 19 and up これは19とそれより上→19以上 で19に加えて別の年齢が含まれるので複数。 ages 16-19 も同じ。 age 18 は18という一つの年齢なので単数。 number 7 のように、数字と同格になる場合は無冠詞。

ageは可算、不可算の両方の意味があるので決めるのは、なかなか難しいですよね。ages 19 and upって意味がよく分らなかったので、助かりました!ノートに書き取らせていただきました。そういえば、言われて初めて気づきましたが、number 7は、numbers 7と複数系になっていませんでしたね!ageは 15歳というときに、 age 15とは言っても、15 ageとは言いませんね。

    和訳を教えていただきたいです よろしくお願いします The suppression of the events of 17 June was in fact convenient for Adenauer, particularly since it validated the policy he had been pursuing up until then and to advise against talks at Four Power level in the light of Soviet repression in the GDR and their continuing support for the SED, even though for tactical reasons he publicly called for them. The events of 17 June strengthened his position both in the alliance with the Western powers and in internal politics, as the elections of 6 September prove. After a delayed return from Vienna on 18 June, he protested to the Americans. In no uncertain terms, he called for ‘the mobilization of all forces to put an end to the madness’. Later he declared in a radio speech ‘that people can surely not in the long term be held down by martial law, bayonets and thanks’. Annoyed at the lack of obedience, the Party members who participated were given a telling off. Even the governing mayor was reprimanded over his behavior.

    However, there have been few attemps to compare quantitatively the relative importance of these three kinds of prejudice and discrimination. We have analyzed the race, sex and age inequalities shown by the U.S. census statistics using the method of the Equality Index. We compared inequalities in terms of income, education, occupation, and number of weeks worked. The Equality Index summarizes the amount of similarity between the percentage distributions of two groups, such as the aged and non aged, on a given dimensions, such as income or years of education. We found that age inequality was greater than race and sex inequality in the number of years of education completed and in the number of weeks worked; that is, there was more discrepancy between the aged and non aged in their education and weeks worked, than there was between the whites and nonwhites, and between males and females. However, in terms of occupation, age inequality was less than racial and sex inequality. Age inequality was also greater than racial inequality in terms of income. When comparisons were made combining two of the factors, the joint effects were generally additive. The combination of all three factors produced the lowest quality in both income and occupation. Changes since 1950 show nonwhites and the aged gaining substantially more equality in income, occupation, and education; while women were barely maintaining their generally inferior status. The extent to which these inequalities are directly due to racism, sexism, and ageism, as opposed to biological or cohort differences, is difficult to determine. However, it is clear that the relative amounts of race, sex, and age inequality vary depending ono which inequality is being mesured.

    Coming-of-Age Day Coming of Age Day is a national holiday which falls on January 15. This national holiday was created in 1948 and a described in the N ational Holidays Act as the day when young people are made aware of their achievement of adulthood and are congratulated. On this day large-scale ceremonies are held in all parts of Japan. The local cities and communities play host at the celbration ceremonies to all the young men and women who have had their twentieth birthday during the past year. The new adults gather together to hear congratulatory messages from the heads of their local government. Then one of the young people, speaking on behalf of the others, formally acknowledges that they have reached adulthood and pledges their determination to become good members of society. At the age of twenty young people receive the right to vote, smoke and drink, and obtain the freedom to marry without their parents' consent, but, at the same time, they must bear the responsibilities of adults.

    Our analysis of data from the Health Interview Survey since 1961 found that all measures of illness and disability showed decreasing disability for successive cohorts of people 65 and over relative to younger persons. Are these gains due primarily to reductions in ageism, to improved support and services for elders, or to cohort changes? They are probably due to a combination of these factors, but primarily to cohort changes. What are cohort changes? For our purposes, a cohort is a category of people born during a certain period. For example, the cohort of people born between 1920 and 1930 will be 60 to 70 years old in 1990. They are a more affluent, better educated, and healthier cohort than cohorts born before 1920. This is because the newer cohorts had more fortunate life experiences. They had more education as youth; did not suffer from loss of savings and unemployment during the Depression; and had better nutrition, sanitation, and health care throughout their lives. Thus, as the newer cohorts replace the older cohorts among those over 65. the average income, education, and health of elders improves. This is the primary explanation for the improvement in characteristics of elders.

    Falkenhayn was called on to justify his strategy to the Kaiser on 8 July and again advocated sending minimal reinforcements to the east and to continue the "decisive" battle in France, where the Somme offensive was the "last throw of the dice" for the Entente. Falkenhayn had already given up the plan for a counter-offensive near Arras, to reinforce the Russian front and the 2nd Army, with eighteen divisions moved from the reserve and the 6th Army front. By the end of August only one division remained in reserve. The 5th Army had been ordered to limit its attacks at Verdun in June but a final effort was made in July to capture Fort Souville. The effort failed and on 12 July, Falkenhayn ordered a strict defensive policy, permitting only small local attacks, to try to limit the number of troops the French took from the RFV to add to the Somme offensive.
