Let that be realized. No survival for the British Empire, no survival for all that the British Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge, the impulse of the ages, that mankind shall move forward toward his goal.

两个阅卷者的译文:
大家必须认识到这一点:没有胜利,就没有大英帝国的存在,就没有大英帝国所代表的一切的存在,就没有时代策动力的存在,就没有我们人类应该向着这个目标的迈进!


这个译文很生硬,特别是最后一句:“就没有我们人类应该向着这个目标的迈进”,简直不像是中文!

就没有我们人类应该向着这个目标的迈进”:“这个”目标是哪个目标?

这段文字似应为:

Let that be realized:【here is a comma instead of semicolon】 (without victory there will be)no survival for the British Empire, no survival for all that the British Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge and impulse of the ages, that mankind will move forward towards its goaland this last part should be an integral unit).

两个阅卷者似乎没有搞清楚最后一句的语法。

“that mankind will move forward towards its goal”似应为限制性定语从句,修饰 the urge and impulse.

两个阅卷者却把它理解成介词for的另外一个宾语,与 urge and impulse 并列的宾语-这一点可以从他们的中译文中得到证明。可是这种理解在英语原文中找不到任何根据。

如果我的分析成立,事情就很滑稽:主考阅卷者尚且弄不明白,又如何要求考生正确理解?
