不可以说welcome sb to do sth吗?

 

本站特约作者

 

吴洪亮老师在2007年第6期《英语知识》之《可以说welcome sb to do sth吗?》一文中认为下面两个句子是错误的的,是典型的Chinglish

Hu said the mainland welcomes more Taiwan people to do business.(摘自2006126日的CHINA DAILY第一版Bejing’s “flexible approach appeals to Taiwan people”)

Hmm, well, we do welcome students to visit some of the wards at our hospitals, … (译林版《牛津高中英语》模块七第二单元p25.练习A对话填空)

另外,吴老师还得出一个结论:美国英语不用welcome sb to do sth这一错误表达方式的。

首先要澄清的是welcome sb to do sth既不是典型的Chinglish,也不是错误的表达方式,其次,美国英语不是不用welcome sb to do sth,而是大量使用welcome sb to do sth。请看例证:

1. BUY CORPUS OF AMERICAN ENGLISH (1990-2009) (Mark Davies, Brigham Young University) http://www.americancorpus.org/:

1991I would welcome you to join me with your own meal,..

1992 …, and I would welcome you to do that.

1995 …, and if Fred wants to come by and look at every check and every dollar of income and every invoice, we’d welcome him to do so.

1996 If he requests it will you welcome him to visit here?

1998 And I want to welcome you to be in here.

1999I’d like to welcome you to join me, 7:00 p.m. Eastern,…

1999 I welcome him to help build the Reform Party an alternative to the Republicans and Democrats in this country.

2000 We’re welcomed to do it.

2003 We welcome you to share in the third annual Massachusetts Missing Children’s Day.

2004 Many Christians thoughtfully affirm Dammann’s gifts and fitness for ministry and would welcome her to be their pastor.

2005 We’ve been welcomed to stay as long as we want.

2008 And if you’re logged onto “Second Life”, we welcome you to go over to our Science Friday island and ask a question there via our SCIENCE FRIDAY “ Second Life ” avatar.

实际上,不仅美国英语中大量使用welcome sb to do sth,英国英语中也不乏welcome sb to do sth的例证:

BNC(英国国家语料库http://www.natcorp.ox.ac.uk)BUY-BNC BRTISH NATIONAL CORPUS (UK,1980s-1993) (Mark Davies, Brigham Young University ) http://corpus.byu.edu/bnc/

I very much welcome the council group decision to demonstrate its confidence in Alex Salmond.

Mr Churchill said he would welcome a change in the law to steer the market in favour of coal.

Today, visitors are warmly welcomed to share Crete’s ancient history and to enjoy its breathtaking landscapes of 8000-foot mountains, deep valleys, extensive beaches, sparkling bays and lively resorts.

从以上可以看出:无论美国英语还是英国英语都在使用welcome sb to do sth,尽管词典中还没有收录welcome sb to do sth。但我们都知道某个语言现象的出现要早于词典。从这点来说,译林版《牛津高中英语》的主编可以说是第一个吃螃蟹的人,他们可能是第一个把welcome sb to do sth引入到教材之中的人。
