말이라고 다 같은 말이 아니죠. 어떻게 말하느냐에 따라 영어표현도 다릅니다. 원점이라는 표현은 영어로 어떻게 할까요. 선미의 친절한 영어뉴스 9번째 수업 시작합니다.


1. Expressions in the News: square one

오늘은 2012년 7월2일자 사설 <황당한 한·일 군사정보협정 소동, 책임자는 누군가>로 표현 익혀보겠습니다. 

“Absurd Korea-Japan Security Pact Fiasco: Who’s to Blame?” 


Signing a security agreement with Japan is not an easy issue. Japan has constantly ignored its crimes against humanity in Korea during its colonial rule and the Pacific War; Japan claims its sovereignty over the Islets of Dokdo; and Japan is a country that many Koreans view as a potential enemy. However, our demand for the government to reconsider this agreement from square one is not just because we want the government to follow proper procedures and consider the particular Korea-Japan relations and the public sentiment.

해석)일제 강점기 태평양전쟁 당시 한국에서 범한 숱한 반인도적 범죄들에 대해 모르쇠로 일관하고, 독도를 자기땅이라고 주장하는 데다, 많은 한국민이 가상적국으로 여기는 일본과 군사협력을 하는 것은 가벼운 문제가 아니다. 하지만 우리가 이번 협정을 원점에서 재검토하라고 촉구한 것은 · 관계의 특수성과 국민적 반감을 고려하면서 절차적 완성도를 높이라는 지적에 머물지 않는다.
