關於英文句子中的of sorts(not sorts of)

The tentacle acts as a fishing pole of sorts.

這是指某種魚的觸角的動作

只是後面的of sorts實在不太懂得怎麼翻譯

某種釣魚竿的意思嗎?

    of sorts/a sort

    1. Of a mediocre or inferior kind: a constitutional government of a sort.

    2. Of one kind or another: knew many folktales of sorts.

    sort of Informal

    Somewhat; rather: "Gambling and prostitution . . . have been prohibited, but only sort of" (George F. Will).

    我認為"of sorts" 跟"sort of" 意思很相近。這句也可寫成 The tentacle acts sort of as a fishing pole.

    意思是“(某種魚的)觸角/觸鬚用來像是釣魚的作用(抓取東西)."

    The tentacle acts as a fishing pole of sorts.

    The tentacle asts as a fishing pole of a sort.

    觸手動作就像釣竿之類。

    of sorts,of a sort 譯為"一類"或"之類"。
