unless you a zombie文法

網路上看到外國人會用"unless you a zombie"這個梗

有個疑問就是為什麼不用加"are"

有人打unless you are a zombie還會被糾正

求解釋~~

已更新項目:

其實這是在臉書上一個專頁9gag常看到的留言

例如貼文是一個只有人做得到的事

就可以留unless you a zombie

謝謝 Beth 大大提供梗出處~~

羅莉 大大解釋得很好

但如果照梗出處原文翻的話

A: Mmm. No, no. But you can't be gone from one place and show up somewhere else entirely. So when you turn up, you're never missing. And when you're missing, you never turn up.

B: Unless... you a zombie

意思是"除非你是殭屍"?

    樓主沒有提供前文,但想必是說一件一般人不會做的事。

    所以unless you a zombie的語意是「除非(換成)是你這具殭屍」,

    也就是說,原文有所省略,例如:

    ....unless (the person was) you a zombie.

    ....unless you a zombie (took his place).

    其中a zombie是you的同位語,故不可加are。

    其實加了are文法也沒錯,只是意思不對,因為unless是帶出條件的改變,而不是指身份或資格。

    前文是某人做的事,沒說是you,而unless you are a zombie「除非你是具殭屍」語意突兀而不連貫,所以加are不適當。

    如果前文不是過去的事件, 例句中的was與took可換成is與takes來表示一般條件.

    因為那是Scary Movie 3 的台詞, 至於好笑在哪裡, 可能要高手來解說了, 我只知道那個比較矮的在雞蛋裡挑骨頭, 抓住turn up missing這幾個字做文章, 最後那個比較胖的終於懂了他在講什麼, 回了這句, unless... you a zombie

    有可能這是黑人的英文語法吧, 所以不加 are 才 original.

    原文前後文如下, youtube 有影片可以對照欣賞:

    C: Ever since the divorce it's like my life has no purpose. Half the time, I walk around feeling like a zombie!

    A: Yo, don't joke about zombies. That sh-t there - that's real.

    B: Yo, you know Nashawn, down on 120th Street?

    A: Yeah.

    B: She told me that she heard a zombie going through her trash the other day. The next morning, she turned up missing.

    C: Uh...

    A: What? Okay, back up. How in the hell do you "turn up missing"?

    B: 'Cause nobody knows where you are when they realize you ain't there!

    2014-09-21 03:13:38 補充:

    C: Guys, I'm trying to ask...

    A: So you telling me that you can appear and disappear at the same time.

    B: No, man. You can't appear and disappear at the same time. The b-tch ain't David Copperfield!

    C: Uh, guys...

    A: Mmm. No, no. But you can't be gone from one place and show up somewhere else entirely. So when you turn up, you're never missing. And when you're missing, you never turn up.

    B: Unless... you a zombie.

    A: D-mn! Hey, that's some plausible sh-t idea. You should blog about that.

    B: I'm gonna put that on MySpace.

    A: You do that!
