本周我们将回答来自巴西的莱安德罗提出的一个问题:‘certificated’和‘certified’这两个词有什么区别。“certified”作为一个过去时动词,也可以是形容词。


本周我们将回答来自巴西的莱安德罗提出的一个问题。他写道:
This week we answer a question from Leandro in Brazil. He writes:

“我想知道‘certificated’和‘certified’这两个词有什么区别。”
"I would like to know what’s the difference between the words certificated and certified."

亲爱的莱安德罗,
Dear Leandro,

让我们从第二个词 “certified”开始。
Let’s start with the second one, “certified.”

作为一个过去时动词,它的意思是正式地说某事是真实或正确的。
As a past tense verb, it means to have said officially that something is true or correct.

例如,假设一对美国夫妇合法结婚。
For example, let’s say a couple in the United States got married legally.

官方必须确认婚礼在何时、何地、与谁举行。
Officials had to confirm when, where and with whom the wedding took place.

换句话说,政府证实了这段婚姻。
In other words, the government certified the marriage.

“Certified”也可以是形容词。
“Certified” can also be an adjective.

它的意思是某人有资格做某项特定的工作。
It means someone is officially qualified to do a specific type of work.

例如,假设你的厨房水槽出现问题。
For example, imagine you have a problem with your kitchen sink.

水淹了地板。
Water is pouring onto the floor.

你的邻居和表兄都修不了。
Neither your neighbor nor your cousin can fix it.

您将需要打电话给有资格做这项工作的人!
You will need to call someone certified to do the work!

你可以说:“我遇到了一个大麻烦。
Here is what you can say: “I have a serious problem.

我需要一个有资格的水管工来修我的水槽。”
I need a certified plumber to fix my sink.”

或者这样说,“Please send someone certified to fix kitchen sinks(请派个有资质的人来修厨房的水槽。)”
Or, “Please send someone certified to fix kitchen sinks.”

在这些例子中,“certified”是一个形容词,用来描述一类人。
In these examples, “certified” is an adjective describing a kind of person.

当有资质的水管工来的时候,他会给你看一份证明他资质的证书。
When your certified plumber arrives, he might even show you a certificate to prove his qualifications.

Certificate是certify的名词形式。
A certificate is the noun form of “certify.”

这里certificate通常是一张纸,显示一个人完成了课程或通过了测试。
It is often a piece of paper that shows a person completed classes or passed a test.

现在来看certificated,这也是单词certify一种形容词形式,但它主要用在英式英语中。
Now, to “certificated.” This is also an adjective form of the word “certify,” but it is used mostly in British English.

来看一个例子:
Here is an example:

简是一位持有资格证的教师。
Jane is a certificated teacher.

在美式英语中,我们会说Jane is a certified teacher。这两个词都意味着简有做这项工作的正式资格。
In American English, we would just say that Jane is a certified teacher.Both words mean that Jane has the official qualifications to do the job.

以上是本期名师答疑的全部内容。
And That’s Ask a Teacher!
