strictly speaking

strictly speaking

释义:这似乎是现在中国学生在英语作文中滥用的诸多短语之一。事实上,“严格的说”一定要有一个上下文。即使紧邻短语的句子没有体现出一个更“宽松”的情形,作者也应该尽力使读者明白短语的使用是有一个特定背景的。

例句:
IN THE JUNE 1967 ISSUE, TOWN & COUNTRY CHOSE a 20-year-old Willard Mitt Romney and 24 others for an item on "America's most eligible young men." Readers could not have known that Romney had already gotten engaged to his prom date, Ann Davies. Alas, Mitt was never, strictly speaking, eligible.
While not strictly speaking a masterpiece show, its like won't be attempted again on this scale and in this depth for some time.
