第二章 单元测试

1、 问题:

Recognizing the Summary: For the following paragraph, choose the summary you think is the best.

 

Sociolinguistics is concerned with the ethnography of speaking, that is, with cultural and subcultural patterns of speech variation in different social contexts. The sociolinguist might ask, for example, what kinds of things one talks about in casual conversations with a stranger. A foreigner may know English vocabulary and grammar well but may not know that one typically chats with a stranger about the weather or where one comes from, and not about what one ate that day or how much money one earns. A foreigner may be familiar with much of the culture of a North American city, but if that person divulges the real state of his or her health and feelings to the first person who says, “How are you?” he or she has much to learn about “small talk” in North American English. Similarly, North Americans tend to get confused in societies where greetings are quite different from ours. People in some other societies may ask a greeting, “Where are you going?” or “What are you cooking?” Some Americans may think such questions are rude; others may try to answer in excruciating detail, not realizing that only vague answers are expected, just as we don’t really expect a detailed answer when we ask people “How are you?”

         (qtd. from Judith Resnick & Lanny Lester, Text & Thought, pp. 194-195)

选项:
A:Conversation differs around the world.
B:North Americans may not respond appropriately to greetings in other societies.
C:Sociolinguists are interested in how speech is used in different cultures and different social contexts, such as in making small talk and greeting people.
D:A foreigner may be familiar with the English language but not with the appropriate topics for making small talk.
答案: 【Sociolinguists are interested in how speech is used in different cultures and different social contexts, such as in making small talk and greeting people.

5、 问题:

Read the following paragraph

 The most depressing thing about an illness is the sense of being left out or brushed aside by it from the mainstream of living. When a person is ill, he cannot keep up with the world of healthy people. Life begins to occur without him. Even language seems to change. What is said to a sick person does not involve him, and therefore he begins to interpret it differently. He loses touch with the outer, healthy world. His sense of isolation is increased rather than lessened by the regular visits of the doctor. The doctor labels the sick person’s disease and confines him to his special place. With tact and skill, the doctor completes the patient’s helplessness and makes final his division from the world of strong arms, sound legs, clear skin, and lungs that breathe deeply. The sick person’s only hope is to return to life again, and he clings to the thought of getting well.

       (qtd. from Kathleen E. Sullivan, Paragraph Practice, p.125) 

选项:
A:NOT READ
B:READ
答案: 【READ
