tryとtry out

"I graduated from college last year and was relieved to find a job. The down side is that it makes me miserable. I’m not learning anything, and I feel I spent so much money on college for nothing. I can’t decide whether to look for something else because on paper it’s a great job and I’m grateful I have it. I come from an impoverished rural area and I earn more than my parents. One of my best friends is moving to New York City this summer, and wants me to go with her. Moving to New York has been my lifelong dream, but I don’t know if I can risk it. I have no financial safety net and hardly any savings. I feel guilty for wanting to chuck something secure, but I also think life is short and that now is the time to try different things out. What should I do?" "He tried out a number of different part-time jobs. : 彼は数々のアルバイトを経験しました。" 上の2ケースのどちらもtry outの代わりにtryを使えるでしょうか?2つの違いは何でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

> 上の2ケースのどちらもtry outの代わりにtryを使えるでしょうか? ⇒ 両方ともアルバイトを「試してみる」という意味で、使えるでしょう。 > 2つの違いは何でしょうか? ⇒ "tried" の場合は「試してみた」、"tried out" の場合は「試してみた(けど結局ダメだった)」というニュアンスの違いがあるように思います。つまり、 "He tried a part-time job at a book store, and decided to work there." "He tried out a part-time job at a book store but did not last long." の違いだと思います。 前者の "tried" の場合は、試してみたあとそこで働くことに至った。後者の "tried out" の場合は、試してみたけど結局そこで長く働くことには至らなかった。つまり、試したことが水の泡と化した、というニュアンスがあるように感じます。

  • goes all-out

    My extended family spends money as though it grows on trees, while I’m getting my hair cut twice a year and wearing underwear that would guarantee me very poor emergency medical care. I took a huge pay cut in order to care for my children, and I’m happy to be thrifty because of what it means for my babies. The thing is, the family goes all-out at Christmas, and I’m forced to buy more expensive stuff for people who need or want for nothing. goes all-outはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

  • 訳を手伝ってくれませんか??

    By myself, I am trying to study Regulatory Affairs regulations. For my job, I have to do a lot of research to know what I'm talking about each day, because technically, I'm not qualified to hold my position. But luckily, I work for a small company and have the opportunity to try to make it work. And so far, I feel I have done very well, and I have been recognized for my achievements. I still feel I do not know enough sometimes, and I can feel very stressed that I may do something wrong. いつもお世話になっています。アメリカ人からのメールです。 (1)Regulatory Affairs regulations をどう訳していいかわかりません。 (2)真ん中から最後までのand I have been recognized for my achievements.

  • hold out for an apology

    I asked for an apology, but she says she did nothing wrong, and that my mother deserves to know anything that is said about her. I asked my mother for an apology for spying on her adult daughter, and she said I should apologize for the things I've said. This has made me feel like an outsider in my own family, and I don't really want anything to do with any of them. Can I hold out for an apology? 最後のCan I hold out for an apology? はどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

    There is a second door through to the bathroom, and from this comes the sound of water hissing on tiles, sometimes constant, sometimes shifting its pitch. I realize after listening for a while that the changes must be Anna moving about under the flow, blocking it more and less from moment to moment with her body.(前回の終わりの部分です) The moment I realize this, I am imagining seeing her: the water on her skin, her head back, hair drenched and clinging, the slenderness of her neck and body. It is as if the wall has dissolved for a second and I can see through it. I feel something clench in the pit of my stomach at the sight of her, and then I force the image from my mind. I actually make myself shake my head and smile ruefully, as if someone might be watching me and checking my reaction – is he her lover or her friend? – and I have to be seen to do the right thing. But it is difficult to get her out of my head. ****************************************** 主人公のAlexはartistで、展示会に備えるために、幼い頃過ごしたイタリアに戻ってきています。文中のherは、Alexの幼なじみの女性(Anna)を指しています。 I feel something clench in the pit of my stomach at the sight of her, and then I force the image from my mind.の I force the image from my mind.についてですが、the imageはsomething clench in the pit of my stomach (何かがみぞおちで固まる、というイメージ)で、forceはそのイメージを心から出す、ということですか? 最後の方の、I have to be seen to do the right thing.私は正しい事をすることを見られる必要がある、ですか?もう少し意訳するとどうなるでしょうか?

  • talk us out of it saying.

    it is better to marry late rather than earlyという英作文で、その模範解答で分からない英文があったのでそれをお聞きしたいと思い、お尋ねさせていただきます。 こちらがその模範解答の一部です。 If I had someone I wanted to marry, even if I were still a college student, I could not wait. People around us, and especially our parents would say it was too early and try to talk us out of it saying that we would have financial problems. その英文で、talk 人out of というのはof の後は動名詞だと習いましたが、そうしますと it はいったいなんなのでしょうか。お分かりになる方がいましたら、回答をいただけましたら、幸いです。

  • 英文を和訳して下さい

    I feel great energy coming from you. For a long time I have an idea to write a book together with someone from another culture, especially Japan, that I am crazy for Japan. We could write in distance, create a few characters some 4 probably, 2 would be you (if you agree) and me. So, I would write from my character and send to you, you would add something and send to me, and have a small book at the end. Is this a good idea? It is interesting for me to blend different cultures. It can be something like Haruki Murakami style. Please answer me in my mail address. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Isn't it exciting? I cannot wait what you gonna answer me. Maybe we will become big and famous one day. Thank you. Bye

  • 翻訳お願いします

    Later, Mary Lou reads a short piece of text from her book. As she does so, the listener can hear how each piece tells a little about a bird and gives it a personality. “Hi, my name is Ossie the Osprey,”she begins. “I live in rivers, lakes, and coastal waterway.” She then continues with the next bird. “Hi, I'm olivia the Owl,”she reads,“I give six deep hoots.” The book is beautifully illustrated and both easy and interesting for children to read. The additional advantage with Mary Lou's book is that it is also educational. It is unusual for a young girl to feel so strongly about a hobby. Has bird-watching changed Mary Lou at all? In many ways, it has not changed her in the least; she still plays with her brother and sister and does the things that other children do. But since she became so involved with birds, something about her is slightly different. She explains in her own words: “Now I observe more of the world than I did when I was younger. I feel more attached. I feel that everything around me is important. I look at everything I can, because it might be something different that what I think it is.” This young birdwatcher and author now knows that things are not always what they appear to be. Each new thing she sees might be something exciting and different. For this curious young ‘Bird Girl,’everything might just be another chance to learn something new! よろしくお願いします。

  • turn outについて

    以前ここで添削をしてもらいましたが、 問題 「あなたがこれまで誰かからもらったもので、心に残っているものにどんなものがありますか。ひとつ挙げて、その理由とともに70語程度の英語で述べなさい。」 回答 「A close friend once made a casual remark to me that turned out to be a memorable present.I was broken-hearted because I`d been rejected by a girl.I`d been depressed for days when he said to me,``Nobody will ever like you if you always look depressed.Forget her and find something that is really important to you!`` Those word opened my eyes and I began to apply myself to my studies.」 というのを予備校講師にだしたのですが、 「turned out to be」を「became」に直されました。 理由が「turne out」は「処分,大掃除,装い」が一般的と書いてありました。
