用法
The pronunciation of banal is not settled among educated speakers of American English. Sixty years ago, H.W. Fowler recommended the pronunciation BAN-al (rhyming with panel ), but this pronunciation is now regarded as recondite by most Americans: it is preferred by only 2 percent of the Usage Panel. Other possibilities are BANE-al (rhyming with anal ), preferred by 38 percent of the Panel; ba-NAL (rhyming with canal ), preferred by 46 percent; and ba-NAHL (the last syllable rhyming with doll ), preferred by 14 percent (this last pronunciation is more common in British English). Some panelists admit to being so vexed by the problem that they tend to avoid the word in conversation. Speakers can perhaps take comfort in knowing that any one of the last three pronunciations will have the support of a substantial minority, and that none of them is incorrect. When several pronunciations of a word are widely used, there is really no right or wrong one.
单词banal 的发音在受过教育的讲美式英语的人中并未固定下来。 六十年前,H.W.福勒曾建议其发音为BAN-al(与panel 押韵), 但大多数美国人认为这一发音是晦涩难懂的:它只得到“惯用法专题研究小组”中2%成员的偏爱。另外可能的发音有BANE-al(与anal 押韵),得到38小组成员的认可; ba-NAL(与canal 押韵)得到46的认可; ba-NAHL(最后一个音节与doll 押韵),得到14的认可 (这最后一个发音在英国英语中更为常用)。一些小组成员承认,这个词的发音令他们太伤脑筋了以至他们在说话时尽量避免使用它。当使用者得知最后三个发音中的任何一个都有较为坚实的少数票的支持,且它们中的任何一个都不是错误的,也许会给他们一些安慰。当一个单词的几种发音都被广泛使用时,便的确无所谓对错了
