Слово дня – COMMUTE

?Рубрика – Слово дня (Word of the Day)

Вы не представляете, КАК я люблю преподавать (=рассказывать) слово COMMUTE.
Самое интересное для изучающих язык – это реалии, которых не существует в родном языке и наоборот.
Вот нет в русском одного слова, которое бы описывало
“процесс передвижения из дома (пригорода) на работу и обратно домой”. Вот нет!
А в английском есть такое слово! И звучит оно коротко и благородно – commute – [kə’mjuːt] – ком-йют.

?to commute – If you commute, you travel a long distance every day between your home and your place of work.
(перевод из словаря – ездить ежедневно на работу в город из пригорода или другого города)
?a commute = a journey you take every time when you travel to work
?a commuter = a person who commutes?
P.S. для юристов это слово означает “смягчать наказание”.


[V] – Mike commutes to London every day…

You think your daily commute is bad? Try being a resident of the Chinese village of Atuler. People from the remote settlement have to scale a rock face to reach the outside world.


=====English version====
You can’t even imagine how I love to teach the word “to commute”.
The most interesting thing for English learners is to come across and study the realia which doesn’t exist in our native languages. For instance, we don’t have one word for “the process of traveling from one place to another in order to get to work”. However, English has such a wonderful word, and it is called “COMMUTE”.

  • “I’ve learned a few important things through your post. I would also like to convey that there is a situation that you will obtain a loan and never need a cosigner such as a Government Student Aid Loan. However, if you are getting that loan through a classic bank then you need to be made ready to have a cosigner ready to enable you to. The lenders may base that decision using a few aspects but the biggest will be your credit rating. There are some loan companies that will furthermore look at your job history and make up your mind based on that but in many cases it will be based on on your scores.”
