    the shape of things to come 未來的發展趨勢

    Context:
    Closure of a Local Bookshop
    A few years ago we would have had no difficulty selling either the business or the building. Now, after many months, we have given up trying to find an owner for the business and the building is still on the market. There is simply no demand for commercial property in the center of town.
    I’m afraid that this will be the shape of things to come for the town. People prefer to shop at the shopping complexes out of town where there is plenty of parking space and where they get a large selection of goods in a relatively small area.

    一家在地書店的歇業通知
    幾年前對我們來說,不論是要賣掉這個企業或是建築物,都是輕而易舉的事情。現在,在過了好幾個月之後,我們已經放棄尋找新的企業主,這間書局仍然乏人問津。現在市中心沒有貿易大樓的需求了。
    我擔心這會變成這個城鎮未來的發展趨勢。人們現在比較喜歡在郊區的購物商場買東西,因為購物商場通常有很大的停車場,而且購物商場的商品選擇也比較多樣化,同時又能在單一個場所就可以買到所有需要的東西。


    • 片語: the shape of things to come 未來的發展趨勢
    • 定義:something which shows how things are likely to be, or likely to develop in the future
    • 例句:
    1. Many jobs were lost when they introduced computerization into the company’s factories and this was the shape of things to come.
    或許未來工廠的人力需求會因為電腦化的引進而降低,而這可能會成為未來的發展趨勢。
    2. There is a greater tendency for people to live alone now and it is thought that single-occupancy accommodation is the shape of things to come. 
    現在獨居的趨勢愈來愈高,未來單一屋主的景象可能會愈來愈多。
