(版主解說)

◎ 電子郵件標題 (Event Description – Taipei Alumni Reception)。

 

◎ NUU Enrollment Manager = 同位格,指逗點前面的那個人 (Kay Johnson)。

 

◎ look forward to = 期待
‘to’ 為介系詞,所以後面要接「動名詞」與「名詞」。

 

◎ Light appetizers will be provided.
(會場將會準備小點心。)
類似的寫法包括:Drinks and Foods will be provided.

 

◎ We hope that business or personal travel may find you nearby, and able to attend.
(我們希望你們會因為出差或個人旅遊,去到台北附近而能夠參加聚會。)

* find 在此是一種其特的用法,跟中文的思維有些不同,愈到這種句子只能夠意會並背誦。

本句型只能以下列方式解釋:
find = to discover sb/sth/yourself doing sth or in a particular situation, especially when this is unexpected 發現,發覺 (處於某狀態、在做某事)

I was dissapointed to find you out when I called.
= I was dissapointed to find that you were out when I called.
(我打電話時,發現你不在,十分失望。) – 《牛津高階英漢雙解詞典》例句

We came home and found her asleep on the sofa.
(我們回到家,看見她在沙發上睡著了。) – 《牛津高階英漢雙解詞典》例句

* see 也有類似怪異的用法:
see = be a time when an event happens; witness 為某件事發生之時;目睹
This year sees the tercentenary of Handel’s birth.
(今年是韓德爾誕辰三百週年。) – 《牛津高階英漢雙解詞典》例句

see = be the scene or setting of sth 為某件事的現場或者背景
This stadium has seen many thrilling football matches.
(這個體育場舉辦過很多精采的足球賽事。) – 《牛津高階英漢雙解詞典》例句
