ちょっと気になったので。。。

 

時間がある時にTOEICkerの方たちのブログやTwitterをのぞかせてもらう時があるのですが、気になったツイートがあったので。

 

Does anyone have progress to report?

だれかレポートの進捗ありますか?

 

以前にこのブログto request additional fundingという表現でto requestをすぐにto不定詞の形の動詞だと判断することは意外に難しいのではないかと書かせてもらいましたが、この方の解釈はto reportを名詞とみなしているようですね。やはり心配していたようなことは起きるようです。

 

英辞郎にも似た表現がありますし、reportに冠詞がないのも名詞としては不自然ですので、この文もto不定詞の形の動詞でいいのではないでしょうか。

 

(英辞郎)

no progress to report

報告すべき進捗[進展]がないこと

have no progress to report

〔人や組織が〕報告すべき進捗[進展]がない

 

Does anyone have progress to report?anyoneyouprogressany progressとしたほうが検索ヒット数が増えました。検索結果を見てもレポートの進捗をしているのではなく、報告できるような進捗について話していることがわかります。

 

'The time is 8.30 a.m., Monday, June the thirteenth. This is the seventeenth briefing of Operation Icon,' Roy Grace said to his team in the Conference Room. ' Does anyone have any progressto report since our briefing of yesterday morning?

Annalise Vineer raised her hand. 'Yes, chief. I've been going through the list of members of the West Sussex Piscatorial Society supplied to me by their secretary, and the list of all people who had any involvement with this club. I've found someone with a link to Sonery Farm.


Do you have any progress to report?の方がが検索ヒット数は断然多かったです。

Do you have any progress to report?と同じようにIs there any progress to report?という表現も使われていました。

 

“Police are continuing their investigation into the murder of Ms. Bonner.” TV reporter Ken Ford spoke in hushed tones into his handheld microphone as, in the background, the simple casket was carried into St. Anselm's. “With me is homicide detective Lieutenant Tully. . . .” The picture widened to include Tully's impassive face. “Lieutenant,” Ford asked, “is there any progress to reportin this case?”

 “We're following leads. There's been some progress. But there's nothing really new to report.” Tully looked away from the camera, creating the true impression that he was uncomfortable being interviewed.

 

じゃあ「〜についての進捗」を聞いたい場合はと言えば、Is there any progress on ...?のようになるようです。
