U.K.人怎么不把温馨当北美洲人

Why do the British not feel European?

英帝国人怎么不觉得温馨是北美洲人?

获得39.7k好评的答应 @Stuart Aitken:

I spent a year living in an internationaldormitoryin China, with
students from all over the world. “Birds of a feather flock together”,
as they say. Of all the various categorisations that could be made based
on the way people formed their groups, the most obvious collections
were:

自身在中国住了一年留学生宿舍,那里有来源世界各省的学童。人们常说:“人以群分”,在种种小团体形成的归类方法中,最显眼的分类是:

Westerners – (European and American mainly)

西方人(紧假诺欧美丽的女子)

East Asians – (Thailand, Korea, Japan, Vietnam)

东亚人(泰国、韩国、日本、越南)

South Asians – (India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan)

东亚人(孔雀之国、巴基斯坦、尼泊尔、不丹)

Middle-easterners/Arabic – (Iran, Yemen etc)

中东/阿拉伯人(伊朗、也门等)

Slavic/Central Asian – (Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan etc)

斯拉内人/中亚人(俄联邦、乌Crane、哈萨克斯坦等)

People really do gravitate into groups based on ethnic and cultural
identity. At that time, I knew more than ever that I was a European. The
way I as a Brit acted, thought was entirely in tune with the Europeans I
spent time with.

人人进入一些交道圈真的是因为种族和文化的区分。那时自己才第一遍更鲜明地了然自己是北美洲人,作为英国人的自身作为和揣摩方法都和身边的亚洲人一律。

I am definitely European.

自然我是亚洲人。

Before this experience, I’ll admit I wasn’t hugely aware of this.

国家地理,留学此前,我认可自己从未有过真的意识到那或多或少。

As to why most Brits don’t feel European, I suspect it’sbecause of the
rather large stretch of water that separates us from the mainland. So
Brits not identifying as European is quite a standard phenomenon, I
believe.

关于怎么大部分大不列颠及北爱尔兰联合王国人都不把自己当南美洲人,我思疑是因为在大家和陆地之间有大片水域相隔,所以我觉着英国人不把自己当南美洲人是很健康的气象。

得到10.7k好评的应对 @杰弗里 Thorndyke:

Why do the British not feel European?

何以英帝国人不认为自己是北美洲人?

I am answering the question from a purely personal view. First I regard
myself as “English” not British. Secondly I do not feel European as
Europe is “abroad”. I have been there, Germany, Austria, France, but not
since 1961.

本人要从很私人的角度来答复这些题材。首先我把自己看做是英格兰人,而非英帝国人。其次我不觉得自己是澳大利亚人因为澳大利亚是“国外”,我去过南美洲,到过德意志联邦共和国、奥地利共和国(Republik Österreich)、高卢鸡,但1961年从此就再没去过。

However the question! – Europe is other countries, other languages,
other histories Interesting but different. I do not feel any connection
with these other countries, and certainly do not feel part of any group
or association of other countries.

无论怎么着,欧洲就是其他国家,说其余语言,有其余有趣但和我们差其余历史。我不觉得和这几个“其余国家”有任何涉及,当然也不以为自己是“其他国家”任何小团体的一有的,或跟她俩有别的涉及。

Living a quiet life in a rural part of England, I do not have much
contact with citizens of other countries. I do not dislike them or
object to them, they simply do not impact on my life.

自我在英格兰乡间过着安逸的生存,和另海外家的人绝非多少交集。我不是不喜欢他们或反对他们,只不过他们对自己的生存一点影响都未曾。

It is the same with Europe, I know it’s there, know a reasonable amount
about it, but have absolutely no contact with it.

对澳国也是这么,我通晓它在那儿,关于北美洲自己也适用精通一些,但跟它相对一点事关都不曾。
