老外也会换的商务写作错误(一)

2012-04-19  点击:4022

人们在使用与“regards”和“respect”相关的商务英语词组时经常会出现误用错用的情况。在英语里,的确有一些与这两个词相关的词组,但很容易混淆。比如,人们经常会用“in respect to”和“with regards to”来表示“关于”的意思,但实际上这种用法是不正确的。下面列出几组由“regard”或“respect”组成的表达,它们的意思相近,都有“关于,至于,提到”的意思。
1. regarding
Eg.:I have received your letter of October 15 regarding the three letters of recommendation which you require.
例句:我已收到您10月15日的信,提到需要三封推荐信一事。
2. as regards (这是唯一一个用到regards的词组)
Eg. As regards communication with colleagues, department meetings are held once a fortnight.
例句:关于员工间的交流沟通,每两周会举行一次部门会议。
3.in regard to (很少用)
Eg.:This is Bill Burton from Milford Insurance, I’m calling in regard to our meeting neg.t Tuesday.
例句:我是米尔福德保险公司的比尔伯顿,我想问一下有关下周二我们见面的事。
4. with regard to
EG.:With regard to the Middle East and North Africa, the U.S. and EU pledged to continue to support democratic transitions and economic development.
例句:关于中东和北非问题,美国和欧盟承诺将继续支持其民主改革和经济发展。
5.respecting (很少用)
Eg.:I must tell you that I have not come to any decided opinion respecting him, but I think him a Maltese.
例句:我只能告诉您,我对他还没有什么明确的看法。但我认为他可能是个马耳他人。
6.in respect of
Eg.:When a customer first opens an account, he instructs the bank to debit his account only in respect of cheques drawn by himself.
例句:储户首次在银行开户时,嘱咐银行他的存款只能凭本世人签字的支票来提取。
7. with respect to
Eg.:With respect to your other proposals, I am not yet able to tell you our decision.
例句:谈到你的其他建议, 我现在还无法把我们的决定告诉你。
