場にふさわしい語り口を

 
コバンザメのようで恐縮ですが今回もMorite2さんのPart4紹介に便乗させてもらいます。例題は授賞式での紹介スピーチでしょうか。

It is an honor to introduce Cheryl Beatie, my old friend and Willton Glass’s salesperson of the year.

式というフォーマルな場ですから語り口も少し改まった形になりやすいのは日本でも同じでしょう。口語が入るからといってTOEICで闇雲に使われるのではなくその場に合ったかたちで登場することになるでしょう。

早々と大統領選撤退表明したクリスティー知事でit is my honor to introduce New Jersey's own, Jon Bon Jovi.という表現がありました。



When you get to be the Governor of New Jersey, you get the incredible honor of introducing people who make New Jersey, New Jersey and for his foundation and all of the work that he and his family do, they have provided people with enormous hope that we never forget. We never forget the people who have been hurt, and we never forget where we came from, and so, as a proud son of New Jersey first, and then second, as the Governor of New Jersey, it is my honor to introduce New Jersey's own, Jon Bon Jovi.

It is an honorにはいろいろバリエーションがあります。



It's a privilege for me to be able to do this tonight, and come here, so I've got some random memories in the form of a letter to John.

It’s my great pleasure tonight to induct Paul McCartney into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

古い動画ばかりですみませんが、今回のグラミーでは見つけられなかったので。。。



Art is the unapologetic celebration of culture through self-expression. It can impact people in a variety of ways for different reasons at different times. Some will react. Some will respond. And some will be moved. These are the records that moved the masses in 2015.

表現の面白いところは文脈に応じて受け止め方も変わること。ビヨンセの上記の言葉はスーパーボールのパフォーマンスへの批判に対する返答かもしれないと書いている記事がありました。もちろんこういうのは確証のある話ではないのでBeyonce also seemed to make a statementのようにseemを使っていますね。

Beyonce also seemed to make a statement when she presented the final award for the night, record of the year.
"Art is the unapologetic celebration of culture through self-expression. It can impact people in a variety of ways for different reasons at different times. Some will react. Some will respond. And some will be moved," she said, seeming to speak to those who were critical of her Super Bowl performance of the anthem, "Formation."
