What do you dream about? 你都做什麼夢呢?

大家都做什麼樣的夢呢?排行前幾名的你知道是什麼嗎?潔西比較記得的是從前常會做一些被追殺的夢,被一群人追啊追的。另外還有掉下去,從高樓大廈往下掉,很恐怖的,還尖叫,結果現在還真的叫出來。還有夢到有人死掉的也有。還是什麼呢?美夢也有,不過成真的倒不多,也還好不多吧,呵呵。很多人說是日有所思,夜有所夢,還有做春夢的就是欲求不滿之類的,夢的解析大師弗洛伊德又另有見解。這裡呢潔西把BBC Learning English 裡面的Express English跟上網找了一些排名前十名夢的與夢的意義拿來明天上課用。順便放上來,大家參考一下,潔西覺得還挺有趣的呢!

 

把BBC Learning English 裡面的Express English拿來用,這個部分還挺有趣的,就是問一個問題,然後有一段小短片,幾個人回答。回答的時候有搭配字幕。下面開放給網友們回答的答案。不過放上來的都已經是去年的了。可能是因為要製作的關係。下面是它的內容:

 

BBC Learning English      Express English   Dreams

http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/03/110324_ee_dreams_page.shtml

 

Express yourself! Every week we ask you a different question. Hear what people in London say, then join the conversation! This week: Dreams.

What do you dream about?

Here’s what people in London said:

A: “I usually don’t remember my dreams.”

B: “I’m in, you know, those old exam halls, can’t find the room, can’t find my seat in the exam room, don’t know which exam I’m going to, then realise I’m naked. I think it sort of stops at that point really, when I realise that all is lost.”

C: “I always have dreams about tornados. They’re usually a big storm and I have to try and run away from them, which is weird because I’ve never been in one and I’m not really scared of them, but I always dream about them.”

 

下面是前十名的夢與夢的意義。可以點進去網頁,有圖片跟更詳細的說明。潔西覺得內容太多,所以只把意義摘要出來。大概翻譯一下。

這個夢通常是表示你在生活的某個方面有無力感。或是你正往撞車的方向前進(隱喻)。

9

This dream often means that you feel you are losing touch with reality, or that a part of your body or mind is not functioning as it should. It can also occur when you are feeling anxious about making a connection with another person in real life.

這個夢通常式表示你覺得不切實際。或著是你的身心沒有正常運作。也可能是你對於與現實生活中的另外一個人之間的關係覺得焦慮。

8

Lost or Trapped 迷路或被困住

This is often accompanied by a feeling of terror. This dream usually means that you are trapped in real life – unable to make the right choice.

這通常是伴隨著恐懼。這樣的夢通常表示你在現實生活中被困住了。不能做正確的決定。

 

7

This dream usually means that you feel that you have missed out on an important opportunity in your real life. It will often occur when you are struggling over an important decision.

這個夢通常表示你覺得你錯失了現實生活中的重大機會。通常會在你掙扎著要做出重大決定的時候做的夢。

 

6

Failing a Test 沒通過考試

This dream usually means that you are feeling tested in some way in your real life. You may feel that you are unprepared for something or playing the wrong part in life.

這個夢表示你覺得你的現實生活的某方面受到考驗。你可能覺得你尚未準備好,或者是扮演着不對的角色。

 

5

Ill or Dying 生病或死亡

It is a moderately common dream and, not surprisingly, occurs often at the onset of an illness. Aside from becoming ill, this dream can mean that you are emotionally hurt or are afraid of becoming hurt. The dream may also be warning you of an upcoming physical risk to yourself or a loved one. When it is someone else in the dream that dies, it can mean that you feel that part of yourself (that you see represented by that person) is dead. It may also mean that you wish the person would go away, or that you fear losing them.

夢見死亡是很常見的,所以當你生病的時候做這樣的夢就沒什麼好大驚小怪。除了生病,這樣的夢也可能是你在情感方面受到傷害或是害怕受到傷害。這個夢可能是警告你一個即將來到的身體方面的危機,會發生在你自己或是你的摯愛身上。當在你的夢中是別人死亡時,可能是表示你覺得一部分的你自己(你看到的由別人代表這部分)已經死亡。它也可能只你希望那個人走開,或你害怕失去他們。

 

4

Being Chased 被追逐

The meaning of these dreams is that someone, something (possibly something as obscure as an emotion) is making you feel threatened. One way to determine the root of the threat is to ask yourself who or what in your real life most closely resembles the “creature” or circumstance in your dream. It is also worth noting that sometimes this dream is a replay of an actual event in your life.

這樣子的夢是表示有人或有些事(可能是某些東西或著是比較不具體的如情感)正讓你感到受威脅。一個決定威脅的來源的方式是為你自己在你的現實生活中有誰或是什麼東西最接近最像那個在夢裡追逐你的東西或場景。值得注意的是有時候這樣的夢正是你的生活中某個現實情景的重演。

 

3

Bad or Missing Teeth 壞牙或牙齒掉了

At the most basic level it means that we are afraid of being found unattractive. At a deeper level, it can signify a fear of embarrassment or a loss of power in real life.

就基本來說,這表示我們害怕自己不再有吸引力。進一步看,他可能是表示在現實生活中害怕出糗或喪失能力。

2

Dream Nudity 在夢境裸體

The meaning of this dream is that you are feeling exposed, awkward, or vulnerable, or you are afraid that you have revealed too much of yourself (such as a secret or a very personal feeling) in a real life situation. An interesting fact about this type of dream is that it occurs much more frequently in people who are involved in a wedding ceremony in their real life.

這個夢的意義表示你感覺整個人暴露在大家面前,不自在,無助。或者是在現實生活的狀況下你害怕你揭露太多的自己(比方說秘密或私密的感受)。一個有關這類型的夢的有趣事實是,這個夢比一般人更常見的發生在現實生活中與結婚典禮有關的人身上。

Falling or Sinking 下墜或往下沈

Typically a person having this dream is feeling insecure or lacking in support in their waking life. These dreams often occur when you are overwhelmed in life and feel ready to give up. If you have this dream you should evaluate your current situation and try to locate the problem that is overwhelming you. Deal with it and this dream should go away.

通常有這樣的夢的人是在現實生活中感到沒有安全感或缺乏支持。這些夢在你被生活緊逼到喘不過氣,覺得準備要放棄的時候最常出現。假如你有這樣的夢,你應該評估你的現狀,試著找到把你緊逼到無法呼吸的問題點。處理這個問題,這個夢應該就會遠離。

 

啊,不小心又做了翻譯練習,造就一下大家。今天有點備課狂,備了一整天的課,累死我了。可是還沒弄完,換個心情寫寫翻譯也不錯吧!覺得這些單字都還不錯,希望有點幫助。有興趣可以看出處的原文。颱風要來了,大家做好準備了嗎?明天台北沒有放假,所以大家出門上班上課要小心啊!我明天也要奔波,加油加油!
