用法

(1)

It has been argued that equal is an absolute term— two quantities either are or are not equal—and hence cannot be qualified as to degree. Therefore one cannot logically speak of a more equal allocation of resources among the departments. However, this usage was accepted by 71 percent of the Usage Panel in an earlier survey. What is more, objection to the usage betrays a widespread but questionable assumption that it is in mathematics and logic that we find the model of accuracy most appropriate to the everyday use of language, a supposition that also underlies traditional grammatical discussions of words such as unique, parallel, and center. According to this account, the “precise” or “literal” meaning of equal is realized in the use of the equal sign in an arithmetic expression such as 5 + 2 = 7; and the ordinary-language uses of the term, though they may be permissible, represent “loose” or “imprecise” extensions of that sense. But in fact the mathematical concept of equality is a poor model for using the word equal to describe relations between things in the world. As applied to such things, statements of equality are always relative to an implicit standard of tolerance. When someone says The two boards are of equal length, we assume that the equality is reckoned to some order of approximation determined by the context; if we did not, we would be required always to use nearly equal when speaking of the dimensions of physical objects. What is more, we often want to predicate equality of things that do not admit of quantitative measurement, as when we say The college draft was introduced in an effort to make the teams in the National Football League as equal as possible, or The candidates for the job should all be given equal consideration. In all such cases, equality is naturally a gradient notion and so is amenable to modification in degree. This much is evident from the existence of the word unequal. The prefix un- attaches only to gradient adjectives: we say unmanly but not unmale; and the word uneven can be applied to a surface (whose evenness may be a matter of degree) but not to a number (whose evenness is an either-or affair). · The adverb equally is generally regarded as redundant when used in combination with as, and the following examples employing equally as were termed unacceptable by 63 percent of the Usage Panel in an earlier survey:
单词equal 一向被认为是一个很绝对的词语—— 两个数量要么相同要么不同——这样就不能有程度上的差别。所以,如果有人说在各部门间对资源更公平的分配 ,那么就不合逻辑了。 但是这种用法在早先的用法调查中被百分之七十一用法使用小组的人接受。而且,对这种用法的反对体现出了一种很流行但却值得怀疑的假设,那就是我们从数学和逻辑中得出适用于日常语言准确性的实例,而这种假设也可从我们对一些词,如unique,parallel 和 center 传统的语法讨论中体现出来。 根据这个解释,equal “准确”或“书面”的意思则是由在算术表达式,如5+2=7中所运用的相同的符号而表达清楚的; 而该词在日常语言中的用法,虽然被允许,但却代表了其含意“松散”或“不严谨”的引申。但是实际上用数学概念上的相等来运用equal 这个词描述世上各种事物之间的关系是一个很差劲的例子。 当该词应用于生活中的事物时,相等的观念往往与暗含的容忍相关联。当有人说两块木板同样长 时, 我们会认为由于上下文的关系,相等可以被看作大约近似;如果我们不这样想,那么当我们谈到物体的尺寸时,就要经常使用nearly equal 。 另外,我们常常会预测和数量无关的事物的相同性,比如我们会说,引入大学的要求是为了使全国足球联合会中的各队尽可能平等 , 或者应给予该项工作的应征者同等的考虑 。 在所有这些例子中,相等是个可变化的概念,所以可在程度有所不同。Unequal 这个词的存在就是很好的证明。 un- 这个前缀只附加于有程序变化的形容词, 我们说unmanly 但不说 unmale ; 而uneven 这个词只能用于某物的表面(其平坦可有程度上的差别), 而不能用于数目(数目只能说相等或不相等)。Equally 这一副词在与 as 连用时通常被认为是多余的, 在早先的用法调查中,以下这些使用equally as 的句子遭到百分之六十三使用小组的人反对:
Experience is equally as valuable as theory.
经验与理论有同样的价值。
Equally as important is the desire to learn.
求知的渴望也同样重要。

(2)

In the first example, delete equally; in the second, delete as. The solution to this usage problem usually involves using as alone when a comparison is explicit and equally alone when it is not. See Usage Note at as 1center, parallel, perfect, unique
在第一个例子中,可以删掉equally ; 在第二个例子中,删掉as 。 对这种错误用法的解决方法往往在于:当被比较的事物很明确时,单独使用as ; 当被比较的事物不明确时,单独使用equally 参见 as1centerparallelperfectunique
