Travel, journey, trip, tour, street, road, flight…



Довольно часто у изучающих английский язык людей возникает путаница в значениях слов из-за их обилия. Существует огромное количество различных синонимов ко многим словам, и порой разница в значении бывает едва заметна. Сегодня мы попытаемся уяснить различие в употреблении некоторых слов, касающихся темы путешествий. Начнем с разогрева. Слово travel означает «путешествие» (ну либо как глагол – путешествовать). У него есть форма герундия: travelling.

Теперь рассмотрим такое предложение: I’m going on a business travel next week. Как вы уже догадались, что-то здесь не так. А проблема вот в чем: travel – слово неисчисляемое. Поэтому нельзя использовать неопределенный артикль. Вместо этого можно сказать go on a journey. Однако, если мы говорим не о долгом путешествии, а скорее о поездке, что в нашем предложении очень подошло бы, то нужно использовать trip: I’m going on a business trip next week.

Теперь рассмотрим такое предложение: We went on a journey round the city by bus. Ошибка заключается в том, что, journey – путешествие. Но вы ведь не собираетесь произвести
«путешествие» по городу. Вы идете на экскурсию. Так вот – вместо journey нужно использовать tour, когда речь идет о городских поездках, экскурсиях. We went on a bus tour round the city.

Ещё одна простая ошибка: The streets between Oxford and Bath are beautiful. Между городами проходят не улицы, а дороги – The roads between Oxford and Bath are beautiful.

С осторожностью стоит относиться к следующей фразе: Did you have a good voyage? Слово voyage означает «плавание», «морское путешествие». Также может означать «перелет» или «полет». Но оно немного устаревшее, вместо этого обычно употребляют journey/flight: Did you have a good journey/flight?

* The job involves a certain amount of travelling.
* It was a long train journey to St Petersburg.
* It’s only a three-hour trip by plane to Seattle.
* The tour includes stops in Salzburg and Vienna.
* Our street was just a row of brick terraced houses.
* Before crossing the road, stop, look, and listen.
* All flights to Tokyo were delayed because of bad weather.

travel - путешествие = the act of travelling.
journey - путешествие, поездка (обычно сухопутное) = a travelling from one place to another.
trip - путешествие; поездка (туда и обратно, обычно со специфической целью) = a journey, often for a specific purpose.
tour - путешествие, поездка, тур, экскурсия; an extended journey, usually taken for pleasure, visiting places of interest along the route.
voyage - плавание, морское путешествие; полёт, перелёт (на самолёте); a journey, travel, or passage, esp one to a distant land or by sea or air.

What a kid!



Jaden Smith: "I always wanted to train with Jackie Chan. This was just like doing it. But I also worked out with a Chinese kung fu trainer about four hours a day for three months before, then all during the movie, and I still do."

"Sometimes I see people and I'm like, ‘Do you know how to sew, cause I'm ripped!'" he says, with total deadpan delivery, another skill he's aced.

12-year-old Jaden: "I don't like movies that make you cry. But if girls like dramas, then I'll do it!"



Describing what it's like to have a sassy younger sibling, Jaden says of Willow, "We're very cool, except for the fact that she hates my guts. She always has to be the boss."
The big difference between them?
J.S.: "She wishes she was 18, but I like being the age I am. And I listen to people older than me. They tell me it sucks to get older. So I'm happy being a kid."



His dad walks into the trailer to make sure everything is going okay. "Runs in the family," Will says, after being told Jaden is a good interview. "We even do some skits together to freak people out. We won't tell them we're jivin' them. But I always crack up—and he stays deadpan. His comic timing is pretty good, almost better than mine."

"It is better than yours," his son retorts. When Jaden won the Breakthrough Male Star of the Year award at the Showest convention in Las Vegas in March, Will gave him a comic speech to learn and deliver from the stage. "So I got up there," Jaden explains, "and I said, ‘My dad gave me a three-page speech to say but I'm not gonna do it, even though it was funny, cause I'm a little scared. So I'm just gonna be me." The theater owners laughed, and Will, hearing this, looks at his offspring with awe.

"This kid is funnier than I was at his age," he chuckles. "But then, he did have me as a father."

Перевод с улыбкой.

Авиакомпания American Airlines установила в своих самолетах кожаные кресла и решила сообщить об этом мексиканским потребителям. На английском слоган звучал прекрасно: Fly in Leather ("Летай в Коже!"). В буквальном переводе это выражение обрело иной смысл: "Летай Голым!".

Компания Frank Purdue , производящая курятину, в США использует слоган “It takes a strong man to make a tender chicken” (примерный перевод: "Чтобы приготовить нежного цыпленка требуется сильный мужчина"). В переводе на испанский эта фраза приобрела несколько иной смысл: "Нужен сексуально возбужденный мужчина, чтобы курица стала нежной".

Парфюмерная компания Clairol представила в Германии свои сухие дезодоранты, используя cлоган “Mist Stick” (примерное значение "Туманный дезодорант"). В Германии выяснилось, что слово “mist” ("туман") на немецком сленге означает "навоз".

Известная компания General Motors потерпела фиаско, пытаясь вывести на рынки Латинской Америки свой новый автомобиль Chevrolet Nova. Как вскоре выяснилось, “No va” по-испански означает "не может двигаться".

Компания Coca-Cola долгое время не могла подобрать свое название для продажи в Китае. Дело в том, что китайцы произносят название этого напитка как "кекукела", что означает "кусай воскового головастика". Компания была вынуждена перебрать 40 тыс. вариантов написания своей торговой марки, прежде чем было выбрано "Коку Коле", что означает "счастье во рту".

Компания Parker в свое время пыталась перевести свой слоган на испанский. Ее реклама ручки на английском звучит: «It won't leak in your pocket and embarrass you» ("Она никогда не протечет в вашем кармане и не причинит вам неудобств"). Переводчик ошибся и спутал два испанских слова. В результате, рекламная кампания Parker в Мексике проходила под слоганом "Она никогда не протечет в вашем кармане и не сделает вас беременным".

- A brunette, a blonde and a redhead are all in third grade. Who has the biggest breasts?
- The blonde, because she's 18.

***
Two blondes are walking down the street when the first blonde finds a compact on the sidewalk. She opens it up and inside the compact is a mirror. She looks into the mirror, then looks away. She looks into the mirror a second time. Confused she says to the second blonde, "I'm not sure, but I think this person in the compact looks very familiar".
Curiously the second blonde asked to see the compact. She looks into the compact and hands it back to the first blonde and says, "It's me you dumb shit!"

***
A blonde woman walks into a store. Curious about a shiny object, she asks, "What is that?"
The store clerk responds, "It's a thermos."
The blond then asks, "What does it do?"
The clerk says "It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold." So she buys one.
The next day, she brings it to work with her. Her boss, also a blonde, asks, "What is that shiny object?"
She replies "It's a thermos."
He asks, "What does it do?"
She says, "It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold."
He then asks, "What do you have in there?"
"Two cups of coffee and a Popsicle."

***
A blonde went into a world wide message center to send a message to her mother overseas. When the man told her it would cost $300 she exclaimed, "I don't have that kind of money!! But I would do ANYTHING to get a message to my mother in Poland!"
The man arched an eyebrow. "Anything?"
"Yes, anything" the blonde promised.
With that, the man said, "Follow me"
He walked into the next room and ordered, "Come in and close the door"
She did.
He then said, "Get on your knees"
She did.
Then he said, "Take down my zipper"
She did.
He said, "Go ahead...take it out"
She took it out and grabbed hold of it with both hands.
The man closed his yes and whispered, "Well....go ahead!"
The blonde slowly brought her lips closer, and while holding it close to her lips she said loudly "HELLO.....MOM???"

***
A young blonde comes home from school and asked her mother,
"Is it true what Rita just told me? That babies come out
of the same place where boys put their thingies?"
"Yes, dear," replied her mother, pleased that the subject
had finally come up and she wouldn't have to explain it.
"But then when I have a baby, won't it knock my teeth out?"

***
In a crowded city at a crowded bus stop, a beautiful young woman was waiting for the bus. She was decked out in a tight leather mini skirt with matching tight leather boots and jacket. As the bus rolled up and it became her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step on the bus.
Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver she reached behind her and unzipped her skirt a little thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg. Again she tried to make the step onto the bus only to discover she still couldn't!
So, a little more embarrassed she once again reached behind her and unzipped her skirt a little more and for a second time attempted the step and once again, much to her chagrin she could not raise her leg because of the tight skirt.
So, with a coy little smile to the driver she again unzipped the offending skirt to give a little more slack and again was unable to make the step.
About this time the big Texan that was behind her in the line picked her up easily from the waist and placed her lightly on the step of the bus. Well, she went ballistic and turned on the would-be hero screeching at him "How dare you touch my body!! I don't even know who you are!"
At this the Texan drawled "Well ma'am normally I would agree with you but after you unzipped my fly three times, I kinda figured that we were friends."

"Knock one's socks off" from Big Bang Theory

Sheldon Cooper: Stuart, have you read the new Flash yet?
Stuart: No, I haven't.
Sheldon Cooper: Well, I have, and it will knock your socks off! Good luck getting them back on.


knock one's socks off = phrasal to "overwhelm or amaze one"

AE: The phrase first appeared in the mid-19th century meaning "to beat or vanquish someone thoroughly," at first used literally to mean to win in a knock-down fistfight so savage that the loser might expect not to only lose his shoes in the fracas but his socks as well. The number of brawlers who actually lost their socks was probably pretty small, but a threat "to knock your socks off" was one of a number of such hyperbolic pugilistic phrases popular at the time, including "knock your lights out" and "knock you into next week."
Among folks who were not inclined to physical combat, to "knock someone's socks off" was soon adopted in a more general sense of "to win decisively," and one might "knock the socks off" one's opponents as well in bridge or whist as in the boxing ring. From there the phrase mutated a bit more and "to have one's socks knocked off" came to mean "to be amazed, delighted, very impressed".
