Subject 1.: Chen picks Tang Fei for premier
 

陳水扁挑選唐飛行政院長

President-elect Chen Shui-bian offered the premiership to Defense Minister Tang Fei yesterday,reaching out in a politically stunning move to a veteran of the Kuomintang with experience in national security unmatched in the incoming president's own party.

昨日總統當選人陳水扁提議邀請國民黨國家安全資深黨員唐飛任職行政院院長,為進入黨中央的最佳人選之驚人政治措施。

President-elect:總統當選人

offer:提議

the premiership:行政院長

Defense Minister :國防部長

reaching out:伸出

politically:政治上地

stunning:令人震驚的

veteran:資深

the Kuomintang:國民黨

national security:國家安全

unmatched:無與倫比的

party:黨

*president之p若為大寫通常指總統,若為小寫通常指總裁、總理、管理者。
president與elect用〝—〞連接,表示為總統當選人,與ten-year-old child的用法類似。

* ship 1.加在形容詞之後造成抽象名詞。例如:hardship
2.加在名詞之後造成表狀態、身份、職位、任期、技藝、手法等的名詞。例如:premiership

*reaching out 原為〝,who reached out in .....〞,省略關代who、又為主動,故變為reaching out。

Subject 2.:KMT leadership moves to back assembly erasure

國民黨高層轉而支持廢除民大會案

The Kuomintang leadership on Tuesday gave a big boost to abolishing the National Assembly, swinging closer to supporting their deputies on the issue after expressing initial opposition on Monday.

國民黨領導階層週二為廢除國大案打了一劑強心針,原本在週一表達反對的國民黨正逐步轉而支持黨內代表對此議題的立場。

abolishing:廢除

the National Assembly:國民大會案

swinging:前後擺動的

deputies:代表

issue:議題

expressing:表達

initial:最初的

*after為介係詞,故expressing



Subject 3.:KMT lets Chen know it still wants respect
國民黨陳水扁瞭解國民黨仍然要求敬重

The Kuomintang, in saying it has not made up its mind yesterday whether to approve of Defense Minister Tang Fei becoming premier in President-elect Chen Shui-bian's government,has sent Chen a message that it demands respect.

國民黨昨天發表言論中表示尚未決定是否同意國防部長唐飛加入新政府,並且要求陳水扁尊重國民黨。

saying:發表言論

made up its mind:下定決心

approve:贊同

premier:首相

government:政府、內閣

demands:要求

respect:尊敬、敬重


*兩個逗號間的句子是插入句,其主詞The Kuomintang的動詞是第二個逗點後的has,
〝....has sent Chen a message that it demands respect.〞:has sent為現在完成式has+p.p.,
用that來引導子句,that此關代表示前面之先行詞message,it表示國民黨。

*〝,in saying it ....government,〞,has not made up it mind為現在完成式has+p.p.,
是指到目前為止還未決定的意思。
