Cirith Ungol

隐藏标题:My all-time favorite example of syntactic ambiguity comes from Wikipedia: ‘Charlotte‘s Web is a children’s novel by American author E. B. White, about a pig named Wilbur who is saved from being slaughtered by an intelligent spider named Charlotte’

“我最喜欢的歧义的例子来自Wikipedia里的‘夏洛特的网’,美国作家EB怀特写的一本儿童小说,讲一只名叫韦伯的猪,被一只名为夏洛特的聪明蜘蛛刀下所救。"

注释:

看看Wikipedia更新有多快,xkcd的影响有多广。就在此图发布不久,维基的对应条目就得到了修改,明确了夏洛特是杀猪还是救猪。

新的条目是:

Charlotte's Web is a children's novel by American author E. B. White, about a pig named Wilbur that befriends an intelligent spider named Charlotte, who saves him from being slaughtered.

注意图中右下角写的‘SOME PIG’。另外标题Cirith Ungol是《指环王》中的一处蜘蛛过道不过和主题无关。
