Recognise

日本5月內試辦美國、澳洲、泰國及新加坡的小型旅行團,並計劃6月全面開放,遊客打齊3針疫苗即可直接入境。可惜日本不認可(recognise)科興。

動詞recognise,英式拼寫用-se尾,美式用-ze。上文的recognise解「正式承認、認可、接受」,接受某事是合法的、真實的或重要的。例如,Japan does not recognise Sinovac, one of the two vaccines used in Hong Kong.(科興是香港使用的兩種疫苗之一,但是日本不承認。)Schools must recognise the seriousness of bullying in causing psychological damage.(學校必須承認欺凌造成心理傷害的嚴重性。)

Recognise也可以指認可某人的成就,加以「表彰、嘉獎」。例句︰We recognise his achievements and have nominated him for the award.(我們表揚他的成就,並已經提名他角逐獎項。)The committee recognised her contributions in the film industry.(委員會嘉獎她對電影業的貢獻。)

此外,recognise還可以解「認出、識別」。例如,I could not recognise him with his mask on.(他戴着口罩,我認不出他。)How do you recognise and manage stress?(你如何識別和管理壓力﹖)
