Message de here4u posté le 12-10-2019 à 21:58:14 (S | E | F)
Hello, Dear Friends,

Ceci sera le dernier Rack Your Brains "ancien format" : Help my Student + un autre exercice (ou plus). En l'honneur de cette "dernière édition", vous aurez, en option, un exercice de "grammaire-compréhension de structures" et, toujours en option, un exercice de courte d'expression, comme vous les aimez ... Pour la suite, le devoir n'aura plus qu'un seul exercice, "Help my Student!" pour le moment. Pour toute question ou suggestion, n'hésitez pas à me contacter en mp.
Ceci est un La correction sera en ligne à partir du Lundi 28 octobre, tard.


I. Please, help my student! Ce texte contient 12 fautes à corriger ! (en majuscules !)

Lisa Rochow sits beside her partner, as their Siberian Husky puppy crawls over their lap. Even though Aery, who keeps trying to wander off the couch, is a new addition to the family, both Rochow and Wheeler look relaxed for ‘first-time parents’. Aery is their baby: they won’t be having children. Rochow, 24, graduate student in social work; Wheeler, 26, high-school history teacher ; and Aery, the nine weeks old puppy, make a complete family unit.
“I feel that I would be giving a lot of my life to become a parent,” says Rochow. “That would cost money, that would cost time, that would cost things that you want to do.” Wheeler adds that he’d constantly worry for a child – “more so than most parents”. Rochow knew she didn’t want kids as soon as high school. «I don’t think it’s responsible for me to bring a child into this world.»
Throughout the past decades, the number of married couples in the United States and the UK without children has decreased. In 1970, 40% of married couples had kids, while just 20% did in 2012.
“ As my friends revealed to me that they were feeling the push toward motherhood, I realised that I didn’t share those feelings.” At first, she thought there might be something wrong with her. She was happily married to her high school sweetheart. They’d previously discussed to have children – only to brush it off because they were “too young”. When their mid-thirties arrived, it would just happen, they figured. They’d want children. But it didn’t. “Neither of us was feeling interested…” she says.
We’ve encountered many couples and individuals who considered their pets to be something like human children.
“ A child-free man just recently quited his job because he learnt from his vet that his dog was dying ; he wanted to be with the dog for the remaining weeks of his life.” A child-free couple divorced and had to determine custody for its cats
The idea of pets replacing kids is a contentious topic in the child-free community.
In addition to conserve money, Rochow says their decision is saving them the “emotional toll” of having children, too.
“I’m a social worker,” she says. “I know what it’s like for humans out there. And being able to give a child all of what it needs – I really feel like I can’t do that.”

II. OPTIONAL: What do the following pronouns and contractions refer to?
They ...(a)’d ...(b) previously discussed having children – only to brush it ...(c) off because they were “too young”. When their ...(d) mid-thirties arrived, it ... (e) would just happen, they figured. They’d ...(f) want children. But it... (g) didn’t. “Neither of us ... (h) was feeling interested…” she says.

(c) « it » refers to
(d) « their» refers to
(e) « it » refers to
(f) « ‘d » refers to
(g) « it » refers to
(h) « us » refers to

III. OPTIONAL: EXPRESSION: A childless community vs a childfree community … Can you see a difference between the two expressions? Explain. (No more than 130 words)

I give you the FORCE, while you'll give me YOUR BEST, as usual. I hope many of you will answer this call!

Childfree community are couple who have made the choice not to have children, they could have children , it is their freedom not to make them.They do not want the worries nor the obligations that a child's education entails.They prefer spending their money on other pleasures.They are happy like that.
Childless community would be in my opinion rather people who cannot have children for various medical or physiological reasons it is against their will; these people live with a very painful feeling of frustration.They are very unhappy(90)

Hello Here4U
Thank you so much for these difficult exercises! I did what I could... I can't wait to have your correction!

I) Help my student:

Rochow knew she didn’t want kids as EARLY as high school. «I don’t think it’s responsible for me to bring a child into this world.»
Throughout the past decades, in the United States and the UK, the number of married couples WITH children has decreased. In 1970, 40% of married couples had kids, while just 20% did in 2012.

II. OPTIONAL: What do the following pronouns and contractions refer to?

(h) « us » refers to Rochow and Wheeler, now

III. OPTIONAL: EXPRESSION: A childless community vs a childfree community … Can you see a difference between the two expressions? Explain. (No more than 130 words)
Childless means that the lack of child is regrettable or sad, mainly due to infertility, or because they haven't met the right partner yet.On the other hand, child-free means that the absence of child is a real deliberate choice, for personal practical reasons or out of conviction, because they couldn't give what a child deserves to live happily in this cruel world.

A childfree community means couples or people who have made the decision of not to have children, for various reasons such as: career, life choice, health status, age etc.

A childless community refers to people who couldn’t have children for act of god, health status, impossibility to adopt orphan children, loss of partner etc.

The notable difference between the aforesaid communities is that the childfree one is often opting to have pets rather than children, maybe also for selfishness and in order to avoid “problems”. The childless ones often choose to own pets to soothe their solitude and share their love with another living being, unable to dedicate themselves to other satisfactory activities. 113

Without any further comments, I thank you for the nice exercise and I hope you have a pleasant evening.

So long.

"I'm a social worker", she says. I know what it's like for humans out there. And being able to give childREN all of what THEY NEED I really feel AS I can't do that.


III. OPTIONAL: EXPRESSION: A childless community vs a childfree community . Can you see a difference between the two expressions. Explain. (No more than 130 words)
Here is my PERSONAL point of view about the asked question

Both childless community and childfree community have the same aim ; living without child. However motivation is very different for not having child

In the first case, motivation is to live in individual way of life without any constraints . For example : Glen and his wife are childless by choice, although they have three dogs, even if they have many constraints with their dogs...

In the second case, motivation is rather ideological and considered like a contribution to the reduction of the world's overpopulation and all its harmful consequences, a way to save the planet. " Make our planet great again".


Dear Here4u
I wiped my glasses several times .I have read the text many times and I can't find the faults in the text and sometimes I detect some words being right .My device of fault detection is not still enough skill
However I think this kind of test are very useful for learners .

Thanks you for your new test and your work on this site.

II. OPTIONAL: What do the following pronouns and contractions refer to?
They ...(a)’d ...(b) previously discussed having children – only to brush it ...(c) off because they were “too young”. When their ...(d) mid-thirties arrived, it ...

(e) « it » refers to the fact to have a baby, to conceive a child.
(f) « ‘d » refers to would (volonté étrangère à eux, imposée par la société), or should (conseil des autres sur un choix de vie qui ne leur correspond pas), as the social’s norm want us to do. Pour se mettre dans la norme… Eh bien non, ils se veulent atypiques, et refusent de concevoir un enfant, qui vivra et les engagera beaucoup plus que les 12 ou 14 ans d’espérance de vie de leur Husky, tout en acceptant d’être les « parents de leur chien », avec lequel ils peuvent espérer ne partager que du bonheur avec un amour inconditionnel de la part du chien, s’ils lui offrent tout ce dont il a besoin ! (…)
(g) « it » refers to conceive a child, to have a baby… to want a baby. As they don’t want !
(h) « us » refers to this couple : Lisa Rochow and Wheeler.

III. OPTIONAL: EXPRESSION: A childless community vs a childfree community … Can you see a difference between the two expressions? Explain. (No more than 130 words)
On the one hand, a childless community suffers from not having children, they expect something which didn’t happen, because infertily or people hadn’t found the good partner yet, they can’t because poorness to their sorrow : like a negative feeling. Summary, they miss children. 46 words.

On the second hand, on the contrary, a childfree community means a positive deliberate choice not to have children, as they think it is very egotistic to give birth to a baby in such a rotten world where life worsens…
They can choose other plans : it could also be selfish, supposing dislike or can’t bear children, be frightened to give birth, be unable for committing their whole life. Summary, they don’t miss children anyway ! They feel completely happy and full without ! 83 words.

46 + 83 = 129 words.

I did my very best, thanks for this last RYB !
I give the force back to you, my dear Here4u, for marking. You ’ll need it.
Have a very sweet week!

See you soon.

(1) over their laps= Rochow’s lap AND Wheeler’s = pluriel concret nécessaire. Grosse difficulté pour les francophones qui ne l’emploient pas et ont tendance à l’oublier …
(2) , a graduate student/ , a high-school history teacher = noms d’occupation, de métier, en position d’attribut ou en apposition (ici) sont toujours précédés de l’article indéfini. « His father, a famous surgeon, … »
(3) the nine-week-old puppy= adjectif composé ; les composants de cet adjectif restent invariables.

(5) I would be giving up a lot of my life= I would renounce… (Attention ! Là, c’est la logique du texte qui devait vous guider à l’idée de renoncement.)
(6) as early as high school : Distinguer : as soon as I saw him… // he could swim as early as 5 years old.
(7) , the number of married couples without children has increased.

(Les deux termes de la comparaison n’étaient pas identiques … D'un côté, il était question de "childless married couples", et de l'autre côté, couples AVEC enfant(s). Hummm … C’était très méchant !
(8) To feel the pull= to feel the desire to…
(9) previously discussed having children= spoke about the possible desire to have a child... ils avaient évoqué la possibilité d’avoir des enfants.
(10) To quit, I quit, quit. Verbe le plus souvent irrégulier.
(11) custody for their cats: in the case of a divorce, the parents share their kids' custody... Here, there's a parallel between 'cats" and "kids".
(12) In addition to conserving : in addition to + V + ing

II. OPTIONAL: What do the following pronouns and contractions refer to?
Les pronoms remplacent des noms. Les contractions "d". Si vous donnez un verbe, c'est forcément faux.

(a) « they » refers to … Rochow and Wheeler
(
b) « ‘d » refers to… had
(c) « it » refers to having children
(d) « their» refers to Rochow's and Wheeler's Les cas possessifs sont FONDAMENTAUX ici.
(e) « it » refers to having children
(f) « ‘d » refers to would
(g) « it » refers to having children
(h) « us » refers to Rochow and Wheeler, now

Voilà ! Je compte sur les volontaires "déclarés", et sur ceux qui ne le sont pas encore ... Bon Follow-up Work, et encore BRAVO.

Hello my dear Here4u!
Hello Everybody!

Lisa Rochow sits beside her partner, as their Siberian Husky puppy crawls over their laps(1). Even though Aery, who keeps trying to wander off the couch, is a new addition to the family, both Rochow and Wheeler look relaxed for ‘first-time parents’. Aery is their baby: they won’t be having children. Rochow, 24, a (2) graduate student in social work; Wheeler, 26, a (2) high-school history teacher ; and Aery, the nine-week-old puppy (3), make up (4) a complete family unit.
“I feel that I would be giving up (5) a lot of my life to become a parent,” says Rochow. “That would cost money, that would cost time, that would cost things that you want to do.” Wheeler adds that he’d constantly worry about a child – “more so than most parents”. Rochow knew she didn’t want kids as early as (6) high school. «I don’t think it’s responsible for me to bring a child into this world.» ///END OF PART 1 ///


As promised, here is my translation:
Lisa Rochow est assise près de son partenaire, alors que leur chien, Husky Sibérien, rampe sur leurs genoux. Même si Aery, qui essaie de s'éloigner du canapé, est un nouveau membre de la famille, tous deux, Rochow et Wheeler, semblent détendus de leur statut de nouveaux parents. Aery est leur bébé : ils n'auront pas d'enfant. Rochow, 24 ans, étudiante diplômée en travail social ; Wheeler, 26 ans, professeur d'histoire en secondaire ; et Aery, le chiot de neuf semaines, forment une unité familiale complète.
"Je sens que je renoncerais à beaucoup de choses dans ma vie, en devenant parent" dit Rochow. "Ça coûterait de l'argent, ça coûterait du temps, ça coûterait des choses que vous voulez faire." Wheeler ajoute qu'ils s'inquièteraient constamment pour un enfant, plus que la plupart des parents ". Rochow savait qu'elle ne voulait pas d'enfant dès qu'elle a été dans le secondaire. " Je ne pense pas que ce soit raisonnable, à mon avis, de donner naissance à un enfant dans ce monde ."



J'ajoute la partie 3 de ce texte en traduction, pour te libérer du forum :

Merci pour ton travail Here4u. Have a very sweet week !
See you soon.

FINISHED
Hello!

petite question à Here4U : pouvait-on simplement corriger le piège (7) ainsi : "WITH children has decreased" : cela ne revient-il pas au même (c'est d'ailleurs davantage en lecture directe avec les chiffres qui suivent, donc plus lisible...)

Throughout the past decades, the number of married couples in the United States and the UK without children has increased(7). In 1970, 40% of married couples had kids, while just 20% did in 2012.
“As my friends revealed to me that they were feeling the pull (8) toward motherhood, I realised that I didn’t share those feelings.” At first, she thought there might be something wrong with her. She was happily married to her high school sweetheart ; They’d previously discussed having children (9) – only to brush it off because they were “too young”. When their mid-thirties arrived, it would just happen, they figured. They’d want children. But it didn’t. “Neither of us was feeling interested…” she says.

Au cours des dernières décennies, le nombre de couples mariés aux Etats-Unis et au Royaume-Uni sans enfants a augmenté. En 1970, 40% des couples mariés avaient des enfants contre seulement 20% en 2012.
"Au moment où mes amis me révélèrent qu'elles étaient attirés par la maternité, je me rendis compte que je ne partageais pas ces sentiments-là." Au début, elle pensa que peut-être quelque chose clochait chez elle. Elle était mariée à son amour de lycée et heureuse ; Ils avaient déjà évoqué la possibilité d'avoir des enfants -seulement pour balayer cela d'un revers de main parce qu'ils étaient "trop jeunes". Quand ils auraient dans les trente-cinq ans, cela arriverait bien tout seul, se disaient-ils. Ils voudraient des enfants. Mais cela ne se produisit pas. "Aucun de nous n'était intéressé..." dit-elle.

NON !Nous ne sommes pas correcteurs avant édition, mais "traducteurs", et dans cette mission, devons nous contenter de transposer dans une autre langue les "subtilités" (qui obligent parfois à un arrêt du lecteur, et à une relecture de sa part ...) choisies par l'auteur du texte ... Après tout, oserais-tu "corriger" Shakespeare ?
