今日外刊来自《福布斯》(Forbes)。这篇文章主要报道了:如今美国人使用社交网络阅读新闻的情况(More Americans Are Getting Their News From Social Media)。文章中出现了很多描述具体数据的表达,非常值得同学们学习。

Pew's study also found out those who rely on social media for their news: industry giant Facebook is now where about half (52%) of American adults get the news, while YouTube came in the second at 28%, followed by Twitter at 17% and Instagram at 14%. LinkedIn, Reddit and Snapchat had smaller but still notable audiences at a respective 8%, 8% and 6%.

Facebook, along with Twitter and Reddit, also stood out as the sites that had the highest proportion of respective users seeking news. Almost three-quarters (73%) of users of the social network use it as a way to get news, compared to 71% of Twitter and 62% of Reddit users the Pew study found.

 

 活用分数 

想要写百分之多少的人,相信大部分同学都会写 X % of people。如何让数据变得更灵活丰富一些呢?阅读文章后不难发现,一些分数的使用可以让数据的描写不再单调:

 

• 52% → about half

• 73% → three-quarters

• 88% → nine-in-ten

 

E.g. 

近四分之三(73%)的社交网络用户将其用作获取新闻的方式。

Almost three-quarters(73%)of users of the social network use it as a way to get news.

 不能少了ta 

当我们想要列举多个数据的时候,少不了respective(ly)这个单词,来看它的用法: 

 

1.作为形容词使用,放在数据前面

• at a respective1,2  and 3

 

E.g. 

LinkedIn, Reddit 和Snapchat的受众虽少但仍值得注意,分别为8%,8% 和6%。

LinkedIn, Reddit and Snapchat had smaller but still notable audiences at a respective 8%. 8% and 6%.

 

 

2.作为副词使用,放在数据后面 

• at 1,数2 and 3 respectively   

• from 数 to 数 and 数 to respectively

 

E.g. 

The amount of money spent on food and housing rose slightly from $155 to $160 and $95 to $100 respectively.

 排一排,比一比 

当我们想要把多个数据从高到低排序时,可以试着运用这个结构:

 

• 句子, while 排第二的对象 came in second at, followed by排第三的对象 at .

 

E.g. Turkish people spent the most (9%) on clothing and footwear, while Italian people came in the second at 4%, followed by Swedish people at 3.2%.

 

小作文的进阶之路上少不了各种表达的灵活变化,同学们一定要善于从平日的阅读和语料中积累素材。今天的三种数据表达法你学会了吗?赶紧运用起来吧!
