Hiking

終於秋天!終於可以很舒服地盡情行山(hiking)!

Hike可以用作動詞或名詞,除了解「行山」,可以解「遠足」--a long walk in the mountains or countryside,尤其是指作為休閒活動。

例句︰When the pandemic is over, we can go hiking in Japan.(等疫情過去,我們可以去日本遠足。)It's a cool autumn weekend, perfect for a hike in the hills.(這是個涼爽的秋季周末,非常適合行山。)

Hike還可以引申指價格或者費用「大幅度上升」。例如,The company has hiked up the price of hand soap by 50% over the last two years.(該公司在過去2年中,將洗手液的價格提高了5成。)

Hike作名詞用時,想指出甚麼東西的價格上升,可以後接介詞in。例如,The recent hike in vegetable price can cause a burden to the poor.(最近蔬菜價格上漲,會給窮人帶來負擔。)

另外,也可以用複合名詞(compound noun)表達。譬如,a wage hike(工資上漲)、a tax hike(稅額上漲)、a price hike(價格上漲)等等。
