under discussion和on discussion 哪个表示“在讨论中”?

作者: admin来源: 网络文章 时间: 2020-04-20

on discussion 和 under discussion 都可表示“在讨论中”,都是固定搭配(都用介词on且都不用冠词)。请问它们有区别吗?

在下列工具书中只有under discussion,没有on discussion。

6.《柯林斯COBUILD高阶英汉双解学习词典》(外语教学与研究出版社 2011年7月第1版)P737:

under discussion

The bill, then under discussion in committee, seemed doomed to die before reaching the Senate floor.

另外,在英美国家的语料库中也极少有on discussion的真实例证。

①在BNC 上共有247例包含 under discussion 的例句,但仅有一例包含 on discussion 的例句:

I'm not seeking to close down on discussion about item three, one and three, three but in view of the discussion we took this morning,…

② 在COCA 共有403例包含 under discussion 的例句,但仅有一例包含on discussion的例句:

2005 Person centered planning activities had a positive effect on parent participation in IEP/TP meetings, but not on discussion of post-school issues during the meetings.

由此看来,under discussion 表示“在讨论中”是正确的表达形式;on discussion虽不能说绝对错误,但在英国英语和美国英语中几乎没有人使用。
