This notice is to the first year students of the Departiment of Information Sciences. Please note that the lecture time for tomorrow is going to be reduced because of the time allocated to a survey conducted by Miss Muneishi who is a student from the Department of International Studies. She is in her final year and is looking for male students to be interviewed through a survey.

She is coming to our class around 10:10 and the actual survey would start at 10:15. I hope you do not mind helping her research project.

So tomorrow, we finish our lesson at 10:10, which means the time available for the lecture is about 70 minutes. Please remember this, and don’t be surprised when you see Miss Muneishi coming into the class!

See you tomorrow.

英語の表現(14)-’Make someone’s blood boil’


‘Oh, he really makes my blood boil!’

表現は初耳でしたが、文脈からいつも温厚な彼でも「激怒」するほど、頭に来たんだなと感じました。BNC(British National Corpus)のDVD版には、いくか例文が載っていますが、その中の1つを例文として追加しておきます。

ちょっとの間顔を見ていなかった友達に会ったときには、’Have you recently come across any news that made your blood boil?’などと質問すると、話が盛り上がるかもしれませんね。
