 ここでのvalidatingの訳し方を教えてください。   validate は、下記のように「正当性を立証する」というややこしい定義が出ています。  http://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=validate  しかしここでは、「(他の人の私はあそこへ行った、僕はどこそこへも行ったという話に押されて引け目を感じていたが、それにもかかわらず彼がどこにも行っていない私に注意を向けてくれたことで)ちゃんと一人前に認めてもらっているんだ(と感じた)」みたいなことだと思います。

  • どのような意味でしょうか

    I have been dating a wonderful guy for several years. He is a great partner, handsome, hard-working, and he cares a great deal about making me happy. My parents love him, too. I recently learned that his small business is paying several employees under the table, at the employees’ request. This has left me feeling confused and upset. I believed that he was a pretty ethical person, and, in his mind, he is doing a favor to his employees. In my mind, he is risking the company that he has worked so hard to build. paying several employees under the tableはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

  • gay bear

    I'm a 48-year-old gay bear who recently started dating a 29-year-old guy. We met through friends about a year ago, began having regular cuddle sessions, and finally started a relationship. He is funny, smart, sexy, and caring. He's emotionally mature and financially secure, and he's as crazy about me as I am about him. We're falling in love, and it's wonderful. The confusing part is that he doesn’t normally go for bears and his sexual and relationship experiences have been very narrow. ここでのbearはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

  • 話法と、時制の一致について

    話法についていまだにうまく会話の際に使いこなすことができません。 直接話法で He said to me "コメント". だととても簡単なのですが、 間接話法になると時制あっているかなと不安な気持ちが頭をかすめます。 たとえば、 (1) 「あいつ(He)今日くるって俺に言ってたんだけどな。 やっぱりこないってよ。」 He said to me that he might have come here today. But he told me that he couldn't come today. (2) 「あいつ(He)、彼女(His girlfriend)が何をほしがっているのか、わからなかったって嘆きながら俺に言ってたんだよ」 He sobbed and said to me that he couldn't understand what his girlfriend wanted at that time. (3) 「そのときどのような方法を取ればいいのか、まだ若い俺にはわからなかったんだと、彼は私に言った。」 He told me that he had never found the best way how he should have done because of his youth. というような文章です。 下が自分なりに書いた文章です。 このような文章を会話で間接話法を使って表現したいと思っています。 話法、時制の一致の勉強になるサイト、書籍等がありましたら教えてください。 宜しくお願いします。

  • どのような意味でしょうか

    I am a mother of three children, but it's the oldest my husband and I worry about. When "John" went to college, he started drinking a lot. I asked him about it then, and he admitted that he might have a problem, but he did nothing about it. That was 10 years ago. He has had two DWIs since, and he drinks every day. I found out from his girlfriend that he actually gets into the shower with a beer in his hand. I recently noticed that the whites of his eyes are yellow, which I'm told is a sign of liver damage. We've tried talking with John, but he denies he has a problem. My daughter and her friends have gone out socially with John, and she says he is fun to be with, and then suddenly a switch flips and he yells and curses. gone out socially with Johnはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

  • driven

    I recently started talking to a man I met on an online dating site. He is attractive, well-educated, respectful, and driven; we hit it off and have talked for over a week. He informed me that he has a 5-year-old son from a previous relationship and I feel a little blindsided. I am a recent college graduate who just started her first salaried job, and I am worried that dating someone with a child is a little over my head. drivenはどのような意味でしょうか?あと、over my headはここではどう訳したら良いでしょうか?よろしくお願いします

  • よろしくお願いします

    A year ago we discussed getting engaged. Spencer said he'd propose sometime within the next year and last spring it seemed like he was working up the courage to do it. (He was talking about how happy he was and what he was seeing for our future). Then his best friend got his girlfriend pregnant and told Spencer he was thinking about proposing to her. After that, the idea of us getting married went on the back burner. Spencer stopped talking about us, and I think the reason was he didn't want to step on anyone's toes. (It's why he said he didn't want to get engaged when his sister was getting married.) It's whyとThat'w whyになるときの違いは何でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

  • どのような意味でしょうか

    When I was a freshman, I started hanging out with a sophomore guy. I began to get suspicious that he liked me, and then he asked me out. At the time I had no experience of this kind of thing (and had convinced myself that no one would ever like me), so I panicked and ended up kicking up a lot of drama. kicking up a lot of dramaはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします
