Vocabulary Introduction:

  • 順應 (shùnyìng): “adapt to” or “comply with”
  • 時代 (shídài): “era” or “times”
  • 的 (de): a particle that links the adjective or verb phrase to the noun
  • 改變 (gǎibiàn): “change”
  • 看 (kàn): “watch” or “look at”
  • 那些 (nàxiē): “those”
  • 拙劣 (zhuōliè): “clumsy” or “inferior”
  • 表演 (biǎoyǎn): “performance” or “act”

Grammar and Structure:

  • The phrase starts with “順應時代的改變,” a phrase where “順應” (adapt to) describes the action towards “時代的改變” (the change of the era).
  • “看那些拙劣的表演” follows, with “看” (watch) as the verb and “那些拙劣的表演” (those clumsy performances) as the object. “那些” (those) and “拙劣的” (clumsy) describe the type of performances being referred to.

Translation and Meaning:

  • A direct translation would be “Adapt to the era’s change, watch those clumsy performances.”
  • A natural English translation is “Adapting to the times, watching those clumsy acts.”

Conveying Nuance:

  • The phrase suggests an adaptation to changes in the era or times, possibly implying that these changes are not entirely positive, as seen in the description of the performances as “clumsy” or “inferior.”
