A:Do you know that people eat more bananas than monkeys? B:Really?I don't know. A:Of course.When was the last time you saw a human eat a monkey? Humans eat more bananas than monkeys. 看这句话第一眼,你可能会理解为“人吃的香蕉比猴子吃的香蕉还多”。其实,这一句话也可以是“人吃的香蕉比人吃的猴子还多”。为什么? 我们都知道,被比较的对象通常是同类事物。 如果认为人和猴子是同类(吃香蕉的动物),那么比较的是人吃香蕉和猴子吃香蕉这两件事 : Humans eat bananas. Monkeys eat bananas. 如果认为香蕉和猴子是同类(人的食物),则比较的是人吃香蕉和人吃猴子这两件事 : Humans eat bananas. Humans eat monkeys. 判断比较对象到底是谁,通常靠语境和常识。
