托福外文刊物《The New York Times》词汇学习(三)

2018-05-02 13:28:30来源:网络

  相信很多同学在备考托福的过程中,也会选择一些外文刊物来进行练习。今天新东方在线为大家推荐《The New York Times》,并整理了其中的词汇内容,进行解析。

  “I’ve taught many blind people to use a chain saw,” he told me, noting that many activities that we assume require vision really don’t. For example, I knew a blind professor at Cornell University who continued to build exquisite wooden canoes for decades after losing his sight. A blind man who lived in my neighborhood volunteered at a hospital, playing piano to entertain patients.

  A screen-reading computer program called Jaws enables Mr. Riccobono to “read” what’s on the screen, type and send email using synthesized speech. With the KNFB Reader app on his smartphone, three clicks on the home button turns it into a reading machine that takes pictures of text — a menu, label, whatever — and reads it out to you, he said.

  词汇学习:

  Professor pro前+fess-说+or在前面说的人叫老师,教授。拓展confess 在很多人面前说,叫坦白

  Exquisite a精致的,优美的 qusi-词根:要求 从严苛的要求里,选出来(ex)的,就是精致的

  He credited his federation with having “built the best news information source out there — the NFB Newsline, with access to hundreds of publications, breaking news, weather” that delivers information orally by telephone, on a mobile phone, on a computer via a screen reader or in Braille.

  He navigates using a long white cane, which he described as “one of the most elegant pieces of technology for blind people. I find things with my cane and plunk the image into a mental map of my environment.” He also uses the same GPS system avail- able to sighted people.

  Mr. Riccobono emphasized the importance of being proactive before a progressive disorder destroys vision entirely. Two of his three young children have the same condition that rendered him blind, and while they can still see, they are learning to read both print and Braille.

  词汇学习:

  Publication public公开的,公共的,的名词形式,使…成为公开的,那就是出版物。

  Navigate v航行 nav-词根航行 ig连词 ate动词后缀,名词navigation拓展navy海军;nausea晕船=nav(u-v形近互换)sea海,在海上航行,晕船。

  Emphasize v强调 em否定前缀表加强+phas=fess词根说,前文有解析(f-ph规则互换),ize动词后缀,加强的说,强调。n. emphasis

  Proactive active a.活跃的, 活跃到所有人pro前面,意为 积极的

  Progressive 进步的;先进的 pro前+gress-词根走+ive形容词后缀 走在最前面的就是a.先进的

  six

  He advised me to tell my three friends who have varying stages of age-related macular degeneration to start now to learn to use the tools they will need when they can no longer see clearly. “It will make their adjustment that much easier,” he said.

  Of course, preparation is not possible for people who become blind suddenly through accident or disease. In a study of nine women blinded during military service, re- searchers from King’s College London re- ported that they struggled at first to adjust to vision loss, experiencing low self-esteem, social withdrawal and depression.
