CHINGLISH OF ANOTHER FORMER UNIVERSITY HEADMASTER



CHINGLISH OF A FORMER UNIVERSITY HEADMASTER

03 October 2015: Blog of 任建峰

如果大家看看陳坤耀以下的 FB 聲明,然後引用疑似港大校委會的邏輯,陳坤耀當年根本沒有資格被委任為嶺南大學校長!一個把 "crux of the matter"(即問題的核心/焦點坐在)寫成 "crust of the matter" (即問題的外殼[或問題的麵包皮?!])的學者,英文都未寫好,怎會有資格做香港高等學院的校長?不知道他又有沒有對紀文鳳說,「我的英文不及我的中文好」?

後記:陳坤耀這段話的英文問題又何止以上的啼笑皆非例子?至少還有這一句:"Discussion at the meeting had to be kept confidential for free deliberation and in the case of human resources because of the privacy of the candidate." 這句話基本上是Chinglish:(1)不是用"'for' free deliberation",而應該是用類似"'in order to enable/to facilitate' free deliberation";(2)"in the case of human resources because of the privacy of the candidate" 根本就狗屁不通,我猜測他意思可能是大概 "from a human resources perspective, the need to protect the privacy of the candidate" 或類似句子結構吧。不知紀文鳳對陳坤耀的英文水平又有何看法?

HONG KONG HIGH OFFICIALS SELLING SNAKE OIL!
Here's another excellent post (29 Apr 2015) from http://www.ourprivatebeach.blogspot.hk/

RETURN TO PARADISE
"You can't imagine how gloriously refreshing it was to take a break from Hong Kong politics - not to be subjected to CY's robotic intonation of Beijing's latest nonsense every day; Rita Fan's gleeful smirk as she again tells Hong Kong people they haven't a hope of achieving their legitimate aspirations; Carrie Lam's forced smile as she again reads from a script she must know is rubbish, while dreaming of her retirement home in England (poor England!); Maria Tam gazing adoringly at Xi Jinping like a lovestruck groupie who's just won admittance to Led Zeppelin's dressing room; greasy Greg So and the equally oleaginous Rimsky Yuen peddling their latest line of Beijing-approved snake oil; obscure mainland academics who've never been near Hong Kong posing as experts on the place; the permanently angry Leticia Lee berating anyone who doesn't love the CCP, or who does love someone of their own sex; Robert Chow repeatedly trying to get in the Guinness Book of Records for gathering the largest number of dubious signatures on a petition; imported blue ribbon thugs; and all the rest of the unlovely establishment crew."

GOOD BLOG
Here's a blog (from a sensible Englishman living in Hong Kong) worth visiting:

HONG KONG GOVERNMENT CHANGES BASIC LAW FACTS
"Ruling" was changed to "Administering".   Shame on lawless HK Government!

"A society becomes totalitarian when its structure becomes flagrantly artificial: that is, when its ruling class has lost its function but succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud. Such a society, no matter how long it persists, can never afford to become either tolerant or intellectually stable..."
 George Orwell
