小编摘要:跟The Economist 一起学习如何分析图表题吧。

An uptick in press mentions of recession bodes ill for the world economy

IT HAS been a thoroughly wretched summer in the rich world: weak growth, dismal jobs numbers and plunges in stockmarkets. Now there is yet another cause for concern. The Economist’s informal R-word index tracks the number of newspaper articles that use the word “recession” in a quarter. If not foolproof, it boasts a decent record: previous incarnations of the index pinpointed the start of American recessions in 1990, 2001 and 2007. The index had been declining steadily from a peak in early 2009. September, however, has brought a change in the weather. The chances that a slowdown will become a recession still hang in the balance. But the hacks are getting anxious.

 

1. weak growth: 在描述增减的时候,可以适当变化增减的形式,比如: strong growth,marginal decline,magnificent growth等。

2. plunge: plunge表示急速的下降,可用decline sharply替代.

3. decline steadily:缓步下降。用副词来形容动词的一大好处就是可以凑字数。

4. peak表示最高极值,可以做名词,也可以做动词。作动词,peak at + 数字
