英文中的各种标志大集合

  There is song in English with a chorus that goes like this:

  有首英文歌是这么唱的:

  Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
, Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind, 
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

  标语!标语!到处都是标语!大煞风景,头昏脑胀。干这个!别干那个!你难道看不懂标语吗?

  This song is very fitting because today’s post is about signs in English, signs that you will see on the road while driving or when walking down a street. Many of these signs are self explanatory, because the symbols or pictures used are obvious, to get a message across to everyone, even if they can’t read. However, let’s take a closer look at the signs in the picture below, so you can fully understand what they mean in case you come across one of them in America。

  这首歌非常适合这篇文章的主题——英文中的标志。你可以在开车、散步的时候看到这些标志。大部分标志一目了然,因为所使用的标记或是图片非常明显,就算不识字,每个人都能看懂它传达的信息。不过,让我们仔细看看下列标志,这样当你碰上它们就可以完全理解了。

英文中的标志英文中的标志

  Starting with the top row, on the left side, we have a:

  从第一排左边开始:

  yield sign – This sign indicates that you need to slow down, but you may not have to come to a full stop。

  让行标志——这个标志提醒你要减速,但不用停下来。

  crosswalk – This is a sign that indicates people have the right of way to cross the street, so cars have to stop when they see a person waiting next to one of these signs。

  人行道——这个标志提示行人可以穿过街道,看到行人在一旁等待,车辆需要停下。

  turning – This sign indicates that the road is turning ahead, so be careful。

  转弯——这个标志提示前方道路有弯道,小心驾驶。

  hill – This sign indicates you are about to approach a hill。

  Pitch it! – If you are looking for the nearest garbage or trash can, keep an eye out for this sign, it will often indicate a public garbage can is nearby。

  垃圾桶——如果你在找最近的垃圾桶,留意这个标志,这表示附近有垃圾桶。

  Second row: 第二行

  speed limit – When driving in the United States you will have to watch out for speed limit signs as the speed limit changes frequently depending on where you are driving; the number on this sign indicates the maximum miles per hour you can drive in that area。

  限速——在美国开车,你要当心限速标志。因为开车地点不同,速度限制经常会变化。标志上的数字表示你在这一区域的最大时速。

  禁止通行——这一标志标明你不能进入这条路。

  dead end – This means that a road is ending and there will be no other roads ahead to turn on。
