(A)~(C) アall イanother ウnobody エothers オsome (D),(E) アenough イgood ウtroubled エwell が入ります。自分で訳した訳に自信がありませんでした。 設問もあわせて、極端な意訳をあまりしないでお願いします。 スペルには十分注意したつもりですが、もし間違っていたらすみません。    Sleep is a natural process, and although a lot has been written about the subject, it is still surrounded by mystery. It is used by(A)as an escape from the world, and regarded by(B)as a irritating waste of time; but(C)can do without sleep completely.  Our night´s sleep does not just consist of a steady phase of gradually deepening sleep. It alternates between two stages: non-dreaming or ordinary sleep, and REM(rapid eye movement)or dreaming sleep.  As soon as we fall asleep we go straight into non-dreaming sleep for an hour or so, then into REM sleep for about 15 minutes, then back into non dreaming sleep. It alternates in this way for the rest of the night, with non-dreaming sleep tending to last longer at the beginning of the night. On-dreaming sleep occupies about three-quarters of our night´s sleep, about a quarter of it deep and the rest fairly light.  It is widely believed that sleep repairs the body and makes good the damage caused by being awake. But its main function is to refresh the brain. Experts believe that probably only about two-thirds of our sleep is necessary for repairing and refreshing the brain, with the most valuable sleep coming in the first few hours of the non- dreaming period: the last few hours of sleep are not so essential. The brain can manage quite well with reduced sleep as long as it is uninterrupted sleep.  The quality of sleep is important. A study conducted in the USA looked at short sleepers, who slept for 5.5 hours on average, and long sleepers, who had 8.5 hours or more. It was discovered after a variety of tests that the long sleepers were poor sleepers, had twice as much REM sleep as the short sleepers, appeared to sleep longer to make up for poor sleep, and did not wake up in the morning refreshed. Similarly, people who sleep deeply are not necessarily getting a better quality of sleep than shallow sleepers. Deep sleepers can feel tired the following days, so six hours of(D)sleep is worth more than eight hours of(E)sleep. 以上です。

睡眠は自然なプロセスです、そして、多くのことがその主題(睡眠)について書かれてきましたが、それ(睡眠)はまだ神秘によって包まれています。 それ(睡眠)を世界からの脱出として使う人もあれば、イライラする様な時間の浪費と考える人もいます; しかし、誰も完全に睡眠なしで済ますことはできません。 我々の夜の睡眠は、睡眠を徐々に深めてゆく安定した段階から成りたっている訳ではありません。 それ(睡眠)は、夢を見ていない、すなわち、普通の睡眠とREM(急速眼球運動)、すなわち、夢を見ている睡眠と言う、2つのステージの間を行き来します。 寝入るとすぐに、我々は1時間ほど夢を見ていない睡眠に入ります、それから、15分間ほどレム睡眠に入り、そして、再び夢を見ていない睡眠に戻ります。 それ(睡眠)は、夜の残りの間このようなことを繰り返します、そして、夢を見ていない睡眠は、夜の初めにより長く続く傾向があります。 夢を見ていない睡眠は、我々の夜の睡眠のおよそ4分の3を占めます、さらに、それ(夢を見ていない睡眠)のおよそ4分の1は深く、その他は、かなり浅い睡眠です。(☆この文の出だしは、On-dreamingではなく、Non-dreamingでは?) 睡眠が体を修復して、起きていることに起因する損害を償うのだと広く信じられています。 しかし、その主要な機能は、脳の元気を回復させることです。 専門家は、おそらく、我々の睡眠のおよそ3分の2だけが脳を修復して、活力を与えるために必要である、そして、最も価値ある睡眠が、最初の数時間の夢を見ていない時期におとずれ:睡眠の最後の数時間は、それほど不可欠と言うわけではないと、思っています。 脳は、それが途切れない睡眠である限り、睡眠を減らしてもかなり良く機能します。 睡眠の質は、重要です。 アメリカで行われたある研究では、睡眠の短い人は、平均5時間半、睡眠の長い人は、8時間半かそれ以上でした。 いろいろなテストの後、長く眠る人は睡眠の質の悪い人で、眠りの短い人の二倍多くのレム睡眠があり、質の悪い睡眠を補うためにより長く眠り、朝、再び元気になって目覚めない様だということが発見されました。 同様に、深く眠る人々が、眠りの浅い人より質の良い睡眠を必ずしも得ているというわけではありません。 眠りの深い人が、次の日疲れていると感じる場合もあるのです、それ故、6時間の良い睡眠は、8時間以上の問題のある睡眠の価値があります。 (A) アsome (B) エothers (C) ウnobody (D) イgood (E) ウtroubled

回答ありがとうございます。 大体自分の訳と合っていて、よかったです。 しかし、長い一文は、無理につなげようとしておかしな文になってしまったところがありました。 少しずつ切って、意味をとっていこうと思います。そうでないと分からなくなってくるので… Non-dreamingでした。すみません。 睡眠不足はもちろん、過度な睡眠も体にはよくないんですね。 気を付けたいと思います。

    この文章を訳してください! According to Kripke findings, people who sleep between 6.5 and 7.5 hours a night live the longest.And people who sleep eight hours or more, or less than 6.5 hours, don't live quite as long. In other words, both sleeping too long and not sleeping long enough are associated with health risk. The big surprise is that what is defined as a long sleep seems to start at eight hours. Thus, sleeping 8.5 hours every night might actually be a little worse for a person's longevity than sleeping five hours. This suggests that we should reconsider tha idea that the more sleep we get, the more beneficial is the effect on the mind and body. To feel our best, it is important to get a sufficient amount of restful sleep, and, at the same time, to keep in mind that sex or seven hours of sleep a night is plenty.

One possibility is that Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights may be spent in long and tiring entertainment. The resulting loss of sleep shows up in lower production on Monday.  Various tests indicate that loss of sleep is followed by poorer performance. It is true that very motivated people can do surprisingly well after long periods of staying awake. But they are able to do so only ady using up a great amount of energy.  People can lose sleep in two ways. They may go without any sleep for a long period. Or, they may sleep much less than usual for a period of several nights. In nne dxperiment, first of all, subjects were kept awake continuously for 72 hours. They were under medical care during this dangerous experiment. Even so, some fainted at the end. In another part of the experiment, the same subjects reduced the amount of their sleep from about 8 hours to about 5 hours a night for five nights. In  both cases, the subjects were given tests before and after the periods of no sleep or reduced sleep. Intelligence-test scores dropped only 24.5 percent following a period of 72 hours without sleep. However, the scores dropped only 14.9 percent following five nights with only 5 hour's sleep each night.  How much the individual swayed forward and backward when trying to stand still was also measured. After 72 hours without sleep, there was a 51.8 percent loss in control of bodily swaying. After five nights of 5 hours' sleep each, there was a loss of only 6.1 percent.  The amount of sleep a person needs varies with age. It also varies from individual to individual. But suppose it is absolutely impossible to get normal amounts of sleep. Studies have shown that it is better to take a number of short naps than to use all available sleeping time in one period. Other studies have found that performance drops in the early afternoon. One way of improving performance is to take a nap about halfway through the waking period. 以上です。

    Most people feel lonely sometimes, but it usually only lasts between a few minutes and a few hours. This kind of loneliness is not serious. In fact, it is quite normal. For some people, though, loneliness can last for yeas. Psychologists are studying this complex phenomenon in an attempt to better understand long-term loneliness. These researchers have already identified three different types of loneliness. The first kind of loneliness is temporary. This is the most common type. It usually disappears quickly and does not require any special attention. The second kind, situational loneliness, is a natural result of a particular situation-for example, a divorce, the death of a loved one, or moving to a new place. Although this kind of loneliness can cause physical problems, such as headaches and sleeplessness, it usually does not last for more than a year. Situational loneliness is easy to understand and to predict.

    Message body sleep apnea prevents you from getting a good night's sleep. many people wake up tired even after they believe they have had a full night's sleep, and end up dragging themselves all through the next day. sleep apnea not only reduces sleep quality, but it makes people feel tired during the day. you must try to recognize why you aren' sleeping soundly; sleep apnea may be one possible reason why. sleep apnea affects the way you breathe when you're sleeping. you may not even know the problem. in untreated sleep apnea, breathing stops for 10 to 20 seconds, and this occurs many times during the night. when a person stops breathing, oxygen levels in the blood decrease. whenever the person runs out of enough air to breathe, the brain sends alerting signals to raise the level of stress hormones, and tells the heart to work harder. this is often compared to racing a car engine that has been running for long periods of time. because of sleep apnea, the heart becomes ovewoed, and that can cause a heart attack. the more severe the sleep apnea, the Greater the chance of a heart attack.

    Very little of what is said is important for the information expressed in the words. It is crucially important, as a way of showing that we are involved with each other, and how we feel about being involved. お願いします(>_<)

    この英文の訳を教えてください! For this reason, we need to know just how much sleep is adequate to maintain our health. We have traditionally believed that eight hours of sleep, usually between about eleven at night and seven in the morning, is the ideal amount. But new research suggests we could be misguided. Daniel Kripke,co-director of research at the Scripps Clinic Sleep Center in La Jolla, California,recantly conducted a very interesting research project. He compared death retes among more than one million American adults who reported their amount of sleep for a study on cancer prevention. Surprisingly, there is a strong correlation between the duration of sleep and high mortality rates. お願いします。

    Aside from forcing a recognition of the personal elements of inquiry, Erikson suggests that personal involvement opens up potentialities for insight. Behavior is reflexive; it emerges through transactions. Understanding the transactional environment requires a “feel” for what is human about behavior. Such understanding demands an appreciation of factuality and a perspective on reality, but also a sense of action and what it can reveal. です。長いですが、どうしても専門書のためうまく訳できません。お願いします。

    和訳をお願いします Have you ever wondered why the Earth looks so blue from space? This is because about three quarters of the Earth's surface is covererd by water. This may sound like we have a lot of water to drink. But in reality, only 3 percent of the Earth's water is fresh, and most of it exists as ice. Half of the water which exists as fresh water is found deep under the ground. In all, only about 0.05 percent of the Earth's water is fresh and drinkable. All living things carry water inside their bodies.For example,more than 60 percent of the human body is water.We need about 40 liters of water inside our bodies all the time but we lose some water every day. The water our bodies lose each day is about 2.5 liters. So we constantly need to put back the water we lose. We get water from drinks and the food we eat, such as fruit and vegetables. We need fresh water for our survival, but it is scarce and sometimes difficult to get.

    長いですが、お願いします。 Did you have any good dreams last night? Dreams come from the part of the brain that contains memories, thoughts,and emotions.You dream during a stage of sleep called REM. You can have up to six dreams a night, and each dream usually lasts from 10 to 40 minutes. Whether or not people remember dreams depends on the individual. Some people remember many of their dreams while others do not. But what do your dreams mean? Alan Siegel is a scientist who studies dreams. "Dreams help us get in touch with our deeper feelings," he says. "They can tell us a lot about ourselves, and may even help us figure out problems." Here are a few common dreams. Dream1: You Meet Someone When You Are Wearing Your Pajamas(or Nothing at All!) This dream may be the result of an embarrassing event in your life. Your brain is trying to help you deal with the event. Dream2: You're Flying This is a good period in your life. You may feel that other people look up to you as a leader. Dream3: You Didn't Study for a Test This means you are under pressure. You are worried about a major event in the future. If you're not prepared for the event, your dream could be telling you, "It's time to get to work!"

    B,C,D に当てはまる語句も下記から選んでほしいです。 alertness、 independence、 industrialization 、privacy The difference in attitude also reflects the way different cultures view sleep in general. Mayans treat sleep as a social activity and think sleeping alone is a hardship, whereas Americans treat sleep as a time of B; sharing a bed is considered a sacrifice. Americans make a clear distinction between daytime nighttime and the kinds of activities that can take place during each time of day, while the San think nothing of waking up in the middle of the night and spending a few hours around the campfire talking. There is no insomnia in their because no one is expected to sleep through the night. In fact, cross-cultural sleep research has shown that night waking is actually much less frequent in Western cultures than in others. And yet Western parents view those comparatively few periods of C during the night as much more problematic than parents in societies where babies' sleep is much lighter. But it is not just D ,or modernity, that has fostered nights of uninterrupted solitary sleep. Japanese children sleep with their parents until they are teens. Even when other rooms and other beds are available, Japanese babies and young children are placed on futons in the parents' room. The Japanese the child as a separate biological organism needs to be drawn into an interdependent relationship parents and society, especially with the mother Japanese prefer not to sleep alone; they do not expect, and probably imagine being interested sleeping alone. For the Japanese the concept of family sharing the night, family tends to orient toward mother and children, with the father on the outside, rather than the American version of the ideal nuclear family with mother and father first and foremost as partners, and children subordinate to that primary relationship.
