scuffle 復習


Protesters march against China ‘suppression’ in H.K.

Angry protesters marched through Hong Kong on Monday against what they described as suppression by Beijing, days after Chinese authorities ruled that part of a city rail station would come under mainland law.

Demonstrators scuffled with police at the end of the march and some who refused to leave the protest area were carried or escorted out by security guards.

Semi-autonomous Hong Kong has been ruled under a “one country, two systems” deal since Britain returned it to China in 1997 and enjoys rights unseen on the mainland, including freedom of speech and an independent judiciary.

But a string of recent incidents have fueled concern over the erosion of its autonomy and rule of law, including the jailing of prominent pro-democracy activists.



 scuffle /skˈʌfl/ を取り上げます。文脈から、警官と押し合いになっている様子を表していると考えられます。『ライトハウス英和辞典』(第5版 研究社)で調べると「つかみ合いをする、もみあう(with)」とありました。

 LDOCEには “to have a short fight with someone, in a way that is not very serious or violent” と定義されています。そこまで暴力的なけんかではないことがわかります。
