對講機的英文怎麼說 (有分大廈對講機跟手持對講機兩種...)

雖然在中文都是對講機,但是在英文裡大樓用的對講機跟無線電對講機 通常用不同的單字。

大樓對講機

(其實也不一定是大樓對講機,例如捷運上緊急跟駕駛艙通話的對講機,官方也是用intercom這個字)
intercom
interphone
talkback
doorphone

解說

An intercom (intercommunication device), talkback or doorphone is a stand-alone voice communications system for use within a building or small collection of buildings, functioning independently of the public telephone network. (wikipedia)

a set of communications devices that allows people in different parts of a building, aircraft, ship, etc., to speak to each other. (cambridge dictionary)

無線電對講機

handheld transceiver (handheld=手持, transceiver=收發器)
walkie talkie
two-way radio

解說

A walkie-talkie (more formally known as a handheld transceiver) is a hand-held, portable, two-way radio transceiver. Its development during the Second World War has been variously credited to Donald L. Hings, radio engineer Alfred J. Gross, and engineering teams at Motorola. (wikipedia)

為什麼會有walkie talkie這種奇怪的名字呢,我想應該是沿用當初產品名稱吧,上面這段有提到無線對講機是第二次世界大戰時開發的。另外首部被命名為Walkie-Talkie的無線電對講機就是Motorola SCR-300
↓ 有幫助就給個讚吧 :D
