Let’s break this headline down to see what it means, 並查看哪些詞彙對你有用.
The first word is ‘overlapping’. That is from the verb ‘overlap’, which means extending over and covering partly. 所以, in this case, there is more than one crisis that is having an impact. It is one crisis on top of another.
The second word I want you to pay attention to is ‘crises’. That is the plural of ‘crisis’. Listen to the pronunciation. One crisis, two or more ‘crises’. Crisis / Crises.
The third word is ‘acute’. That means ‘to a severe of intense degree’. Acute food insecurity? That’s severe food insecurity. Acute.
The article describes how local conflicts, climate change –– and now the impact on food prices and supply as a result of the war in Ukraine –– are combining with one another to create a situation of food insecurity in 20 ‘hunger hotspots’, including countries in Central and Sub-Saharan Africa, Haiti and Afghanistan, among other places.
好, economists, 總結, ‘overlapping’ means to extend over and cover partly. ‘Crises’ is the plural of ‘crisis’ and ‘acute’ means extreme, or intense.
That’s all for this lesson.
That’s all for now. Please give this lesson a ‘like’. I would appreciate that very much.
I am Alan Robert. Goodbye for now.
