「時間指定のチケット」を英語では?

 


基本語彙を柔軟に使いこなすにはやっぱり幅広く用例に触れていかないと難しいなと思わされた例をご紹介します。

このブログでも紹介させてもらったThe National Museum of African American History and Cultureの開館がいよいよ迫ってきました。入場は無料ですが、混雑を避けるために時間指定のチケットを配布しているようです。そこで使われていたのがtimed passesという言葉でした。

WASHINGTON — The fast-approaching opening of the Smithsonian Institution’s latest museum has gained a lot of interest, and while entry is free, eager attendees had to sign up for “timed passes” that became available Saturday morning.

The National Museum of African American History and Culture opens Sept. 24. after a dedication ceremony that President Barack Obama is scheduled to attend.

At 9 a.m. Saturday, a limited amount of passes for the opening weekend as well as dates through October became available online and by phone. But by noon, all passes for opening weekend, as well as the next several weekends, were all booked.

Many weekday passes through October were still available.


博物館のサイトの案内の英語はTOEICでも登場するのでお馴染みの表現に溢れています。

あと気になった表現はThe National Museum of African American History and Culture opens Sept. 24. after a dedication ceremony that President Barack Obama is scheduled to attend.のdedication ceremony。「落成式」「竣工式」の意味になるようです。

(オックスフォード)
dedication
[countable] a ceremony that is held to show that a building or an object has a special purpose or is special to the memory of a particular person


dedication ceremonyをgoogle画像検索してみるとリボンカットの場面が出てきました。リボンカットはTOEICには既出ですからdedication ceremonyも使われていてもおかしくなさそうです。

City Debuts New Streetlights
Downtown Bolton looks a little brighter thanks to a new multimillion-dollar streetlight system.

The network of LED lamps was unveiled yesterday at twilight in a ribbon-cutting ceremony presided over by Mayor Sue-Lynne Jenkins.


冒頭の動画は博物館の寄付の呼びかけに応えた企業のコメントですが、diversityとinclusivenessの大切さから寄付をしたと述べています。前回のブログエントリーにもつながるもので、このような価値観を大切にする必要性が企業で出てきていることを実感しました。
