our overpopulated world - traching resourses

Welcome Teachers
in 2011, world population reached and surpassed seven billion. This is double the population of 1965. The recent and rapid growth in the size of our global family is intricately linked to many of the environmental and social trends of our present society: strains on our natural resources, polluted air and water, climate change, unprecedented worldwide communication and trade, and an increase of people living in poverty.

Частицы в английском языке

Частица – это служебная часть речи, которая придает словам дополнительные оттенки значения или ограничивает его

Частицы в английском языке не изменяются и не имеют грамматических категорий, а также не являются членами предложения.

Английские частицы можно разделить на следующие смысловые группы:

Выделительно-ограничительные (limiting particles) - even, only, merely, solely, just, but, alone
Такие частицы подчеркивают некое слово или ограничивают выражаемую им идею:

This project is merely a beginning.
Этот проект – всего лишь начало.

I only wanted to make clear several details.
Я лишь хотел прояснить несколько деталей.

Усилительные (intensifying particles) - even, yet, still, all, just, simply, never
Они усиливают значение соответствующего слова или подчеркивают его значимость:

Our clients demand still higher output.
Наши клиенты требуют еще большей производительности.

We have just a little bit more to go.
Нам осталось идти совсем чуть-чуть.

Уточнительные (specifying particles) - just, right, exactly, precisely
Данный тип частиц конкретизирует значение соответствующего слова:

Stand right on this white line.
Встаньте прямо на этой белой линии.

Everyone must be here precisely at 10.
Все должны быть здесь ровно в 10 часов.

Отрицательная частица (negative particle) not:
Not a soul here.
Здесь нет ни души.

Not all my books were successful.
Не все мои книги были успешными.

Дополняющая частица (additive particle) else.
Данная частица означает, что соответствующее ей слово дополняет нечто уже упомянутое в разговоре:

Do you have anything else to add?
Вы можете добавить что-нибудь еще?

What else can we do to help you?
Что еще мы можем сделать, чтобы помочь тебе?
Как видите, обычно английские частицы ставятся перед словами, к которым они относятся, реже они следуют за ними:

Everyone has helped us, even completely unfamiliar people.
Нам помогали все, даже совершенно незнакомые люди.

During February alone our losses made $1 mln.
Только за февраль наши убытки составили 1 миллион долларов.

Как отличить частицу от других частей речи

Многие частицы совпадают по форме со словами других частей речи – прилагательными, местоимениями и наречиями.

Отличить их можно по тому, что частицы, как и другие служебные части речи, не обозначают:

признаки, свойства и качества лиц и явлений, как прилагательные
свойства действий, как наречия
предметы или признаки, как местоимения
Иными словами, они не несут собственного значения, а лишь подчеркивают, выделяют или уточняют значение других слов:

Did the doctor come yet?
Доктор еще не пришел?
(yet – наречие)

Our neighbors have yet another quarrel.
У наших соседей еще одна ссора.
(yet – частица)
The plane has just taken off.
Самолет только что взлетел.
(just – наречие)

Just don’t give up.
Только не сдавайся.
(just – частица)

Shackleton Returns from the Antarctic
In 1914, Ernest Shackleton set of on an exploration across the Antarctic. In 1915 his ship, Endurance, became trapped in the ice, and it's crew was stuck. Ten months later there ship sank, and Shackletons crew was forced to live on a iceberg. They reached Elephant Island in april of 1916 using three lifeboats.

Shackleton promised to found help. In a small boat with five crew members, he spent 16 days crossing 800 miles of ocean. The remaining men were then rescued on August of 1916. Amazingly, Shackleton did not loose anyone on the trip.

English Isn't As Easy As You Think))

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish furniture..

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert..

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France . Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
