“government”和“the authorities”的区别
米娅 2010年10月14日 22:29:07

我发现和网友聊天时,他有时用"government",有时用"the authorities",而我喜欢说"government","local government",但感觉有时用"the authorities”是更贴切些,到底是怎么区别的呢,特意到剑桥的在线字典查了一下:

the authorities

the group of people with official legal power to act or enforce the rules in a particular area, such as the police or a local government department
I'm going to report these holes in the road to the authorities.
 
government noun ( SYSTEM )  n
• [U] the system used for controlling a country, city, or group of people 
• [U] the activities involved in controlling a country, city, group of people, etc
government noun ( GROUP )  n [C + singular or plural verb] (written abbreviation govt) the group of people who officially control a country

比如,广州政府规定亚运会期间买刀要实名制,这里用"the authorities"就合适些。说到政府腐败,就是government.

另外,government缩写是govt,或者gov't,我以前把它写成gov.,后来发现它是governor的缩写。Smile
