英語で「退屈です」BoringとBoredの違い

学校で習った記憶もあるかもしれませんが

能動態と受動態

という言葉が英語の文法ではあります。

今回ご紹介する例もその一つです。

使い方を間違えるとまったく違う意味になってしまうので

注意してください。

「私は退屈しています」

という場合は。

Bore

という動詞を使います。

この動詞は「退屈させる」という意味なので、

私は退屈させられている

という表現にしなければいけません。

つまりこの場合は受動態で用いるべきです。

I am bored.

これで「私は退屈です」という意味になります。

間違えて、

I am boring.

としてしまった場合、

どういう意味になってしまうのでしょうか。

この場合は、

「私は退屈させている」という直訳で、

「私はつまらない人です」という意味になってしまいます。

例えばデートの相手が退屈そうにしているときに、

Are you boring?

と聞いてしまったら、

「あなたはつまらない人ですか?」

という意味になって、相手を怒らせてしまいます。

正しくは

Are you bored?

となります。

こうすれば「退屈しちゃってる?」

という意味になります。

もちろん、能動態を使って以下のような言い方もできます。

He is boring.

「彼はつまらない人です」

This book is boring.

「この本はつまらない」

This book is boring. So I am bored.

「この本はつまらない。だから私は退屈しています」

となります。
