黑妮版主的“凡凡文化沙龙”不平凡。

它是温哥华文化沙漠里的一块萋萋芳草地。

这里有这么一群甘于平淡却不甘于庸俗的文化人和媒体人------他们虽然买不起雷曼兄弟的股票,却还吃得起一锅咸鱼茄子煲;虽然个个尽日为稻粱谋,却会在黑版的芝兰雅舍小聚,品茶享美食,煮酒论英雄,权将柴米油盐收拾去,且把风花雪月送将来。有过“分曹射覆腊灯红”的古典灯谜猜射;也有过《洛丽塔》和《魔鬼博士》的雅俗共赏。

今夜,窗外雨骤风斜;室内烛影摇红。凡凡教室里衣香阵阵,鬓影幢幢:有媒体主编,记者,网络编辑,版主,电台主持人,作家,教授等骚人墨客欢聚一堂,准备享受一席语言文字的私房菜。

教室小白板上赫然一行大字:“肯爱千金轻一笑------文字幽默的修辞手段”,点出了今晚沙龙活动的主题。

主讲嘉宾,是一位鸿儒风雅不足犬儒散漫有余的自由职业者。经营“杨老师语言工作室”,又名“常春藤摇篮”,报上辟专栏“杨老师英语角”,网上开博客“温哥华失眠夜”。有点不务正业,有点玩世不恭。貌不惊人亦不吓人,语常惊人却不迷人。

主讲人在小白板上信笔写下几行字:

1. (唐 张籍 节妇吟)还君明珠双泪垂,恨不相逢未嫁时
2. (韩非子)以子之矛攻子之盾
3. (唐.李白 秋浦歌)白发三千丈,缘愁似个长
4. (乐府 木兰辞)同行十二年,不知木兰是女郎
5. (宋词 李清照 如梦令)知否知否?应是绿肥红瘦
6. (唐 王勃 滕王阁序)落霞与孤鹜齐飞,秋水共长天一色
7. (南唐后主 李煜 虞美人)问君能有几多愁,恰似一江春水向东流
8. (宋 王观 卜算子)水是眼波横,山是眉峰聚
9. (宋 苏轼 ) 欲把西湖比西子,浓涂淡抹总相宜
10. ( 唐代 卢延让 苦吟):吟安几个字,拈断数根须

来宾纷纷窃窃私语:有没有搞错啊?咱可是来听“笑谈文字幽默的修辞手段”的。怎么是唐诗宋词的干活? 在座可是有好几位北大中文系毕业的高才生。这小子吃了豹子胆不成,敢到这里班门弄斧?

甫一开场,主讲人就来了个故弄玄虚的开场白:“人类一思考,上帝就发笑;人类一发笑,上帝就思考”。

眼看这种虚张声势的障眼法颇为奏效,主讲人这才开始热身:先谈幽默的分类:文字幽默与情景幽默。再谈笑的不同:开心的笑和会心的笑。终于进入今晚的主题:文字幽默的修辞手段,主讲人解释了上面十句诗词的蕴意------每一句代表一种修辞手段:委婉法,矛盾法,夸张法,意外法,诘问法,排比法,比喻法,定义法,拟人法,篡改法。

随后,主讲人逐一引用若干例句加以示范。例句多属俏皮风趣之语,遂引来哄堂大笑:

1. (唐 张籍 节妇吟)还君明珠双泪垂,恨不相逢未嫁时(委婉法)(Euphemism)

She once entered a beauty contest. They fined her a hundred dollars.
有一次她参加选美,结果被罚款一百元。

2. (韩非子)以子之矛攻子之盾(矛盾法)(paradox)

We actually enjoy sufferable suffering. We willingly tolerate acceptable anguish. We love tolerable tribulation, Allowable annoyance and OK ordeal, Permissible pain.
其实,我们很受用熬得过去的煎熬,心甘情愿地忍受可以接受的痛苦,喜欢忍得过去的忧患,可以原谅的骚扰,说得过去的磨难和不太过份的痛楚。

3. (秋浦歌 唐.李白)白发三千丈,缘愁似个长(夸张法)(hyperbole)
Crime is growing. When you call local cops, there is a three-week waiting list.

罪案日增。报警后需要三周的轮候期。

4. (乐府 木兰辞)同行十二年,不知木兰是女郎(意外法)(surprise ending)

The secret to stay young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.永葆青春的秘密就是,堂堂正正做人,慢吞细咽吃饭,胡编乱造岁数。

I read so much about bad effect of smoking. I’ve decided to give up reading.
我读过太多抽烟的不良后果,所以决定戒读了。

They say she married him because his father left him a fortune. That’s a lie. She would have married him no matter who left him a fortune.

大家都说她嫁个他是冲着他爹留给他一大笔钱去的。这简直是一派胡言。不管那笔钱是谁留给他的,她都会嫁给他。

5. (宋词 李清照 如梦令)知否知否?应是绿肥红瘦(反问法)(rhetorical question)

What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
如果你有两次被吓个半死,结局会是如何?

If you try to fail and succeed, which have you done?
如果你一心求败并成功了。那你究竟是成是败?

We must believe in luck; for how else can we explain the success of those we don’t like?
我们一定要相信有运气这回事。否则我们不喜欢的人成功了,该怎么解释?

I don’t understand you. You don’t understand me. What else do we have in common?

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

7. (南唐后主 李煜 虞美人)问君能有几多愁,恰似一江春水向东流(比喻法)(metaphor & simile)

人到中年,就是女人的头发开始从灰白转黑的时光。

9. 欲把西湖比西子,浓涂淡抹总相宜(拟人法)(personification)

The United States is the birthplace of cool. If the world is a high school, America would be making out in study hall with Sweden, picking on India, and smoking in the UN restroom with France.
美国是酷的发源地。如果世界是一所中学,那么美国肯定会和瑞典在自习室里亲热,欺负印度,和法国躲在联合国厕所里抽烟。

I’ve always loved the flirtatious tango of consonants and vowels, the study dependability of nouns and the capricious whimsy of verbs, the strutting pageantry of the adjectives and the fitting evanescence of the adverbs.

我历来喜欢辅音和元音眉来眼去地跳探戈; 喜欢名词众望所归和动词的心血来潮;喜欢形容词的摇曳生姿;喜欢副词的来去无踪。
The same hormones that are wracking the body with severe changes send signals to the teeth and order them to rebel, so that as they come in they are as disorganized and angry as a teenager’s bedroom. Braces, the most expensive metal on earth, must be inserted into the mouth to squelch the rebellion.

肆虐于体内促使其发育的荷尔蒙向牙齿发出信号,命令它们起来造反。它们初出茅庐,就像青少年的卧室般乱七八糟。必须召来矫正牙箍这种世上最贵的金属,把叛乱镇压下去。

10. 吟安几个字,拈断数根须(改用成语)

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
情人眼里出西施。
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The trouble is, so is the ugliness.
情人眼里出西施。问题是,仇人眼里出东施。

Pen is sharper than sword.
笔比剑利。
Pen is dirtier than sword.
笔比剑脏。

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
早起早睡身体好,钱包满。
Early to bed and early to rise till you make enough cash to do otherwise.
早起早睡,钱包满了就晚睡晚起。

Behind every successful man stands a woman.
成功的男人背后都有一个女人。
Behind every successful woman stands a basket of dirty laundry.
成功的女人背后都有一筐脏衣服。


讲座既毕,大家意犹未尽。沙龙女主人黑妮趁热打铁,希望来宾们各施所长,踊跃自报主讲题目,以后定期举办活动,力求把沙龙打造成温哥华的一个品牌。有人开玩笑说,如果有发了财想立品或附庸风雅者,可以出天价竞投本沙龙冠名权云云。

谈笑有犬儒,往来无白丁。

今夜,温哥华露出会心的一笑。
