この本を借りた時には既に栞が入ってたって英語でなんて言うの?

図書館で本を返却時に、本に栞が挟まっていて、図書館員の方に、この栞はあなたのじゃない?と聞かれての返事に詰まってしまい、「No..」としか言えませんでした。本当は「この本を借りた時には既に栞が入ってた」と言いたかったです。

Already - if we use this adverb, it means prior to a specified or implied past, present, or future time : by this time: previously
" He had already left when I called."
"They've already agreed to come."
"I'd already left by the time you called."
"He acted as if he didn't already know."
"Already"(すでに、前に)
- 副詞として使う場合、すでにや前にと言う時間を意味します。
"by this time"(もうすでに)や"previously"(前に)と同じような意味になります。

【例】
" He had already left when I called."
(私が電話した時、彼はすでに去っていました)
"They've already agreed to come."
(彼らはすで来ることに賛成しています)
"I'd already left by the time you called."
(あなたが電話した時にはすでに外出していました)
"He acted as if he didn't already know."
(彼は知らないように振る舞っていました)

  • No, it is not mine. I found it inside the book.

"When I booked this book out the bookmark was already in it." Booking a book out, is what we say when we take a book from the library, so then the librarian will know it is how the book was given to you.
"When I booked this book out the bookmark was already in it." Booking a book outは本を借りることです。

"No, when I took the book out it was already there." This explains to the librarian that it is not your bookmark and that it was inside the book when you borrowed it from the library.

"No, It was in the book when I borrowed it." This is another polite way of explaining that when you got home and opened the book it was in there already.
"No, when I took the book out it was already there."
栞があなたのものではなく、図書館から本を借りた時にすでに本の中に入っていたことを図書館員に伝える表現です。

"No, It was in the book when I borrowed it."
こちらも、家で本を開いたときに栞がすでにあったことを丁寧に説明する表現です。

"Already" means "before the time being discussed". This is a useful word for your particular situation. The bookmark was already in there.

When we obtain a book from the library, we almost always use the verb "to borrow". "To borrow" means to take and use something belonging to someone else, with the intention of returning it to them once we have finished using it. It is much cheaper to borrow books from the library than to buy them from a shop!
「already」は「すでに、以前から」という意味です。この場面で便利です:
The bookmark was already in there.
(しおりはすでにそこにありました)

図書館で本を借りる場合は、「borrow(=動詞)」を使います。「borrow」は「借りる(使い終わったら返すつもりで人の物を使う)」という意味です。
本は図書館で借りた方がお店で買うよりずっと安いですね!

When you get a book from a library this you are said to 'take it out' or 'borrow it' if you borrow something you are not keeping it just using and returning it o where you got it from
if something was there or done before then this is called 'already'
図書館から本を借りることは、'take it out' や 'borrow it' で表せます。
'borrow' は「(取っておくのではなく)使って元のところに返す」ことをいいます。

何かが「既にそこにあった」あるいは「既に行われていた」なら、それは 'already'(既に)で表せます。

"It was already inside the book"
For some to 'already' be there this states that something was originally there before you where able to see/have it. ex. "The bookmark was already in the book when I rented it from the library"
"I found it inside, it is not mine"
To 'Find/found' something is to come across something by accident.
"It was already inside the book"(既に本の中に入っていました)

'Already' は、それが自分の所に来る前からそこにあったことを表します。
例:
"The bookmark was already in the book when I rented it from the library"
(私が図書館から本を借りたときにはもう中にしおりがありました)


"I found it inside, it is not mine"(中に入っていました、私のではありません)

'Find/found' は「偶然見つける」という意味です。

  • No, it isnt mine. It must have been put there by the previous borrower.

People always put book marks in the books they read. It's alright to leave a bookmark in your own book for future reference. But, if it's a book one borrowed from a library, it's importatnt to remove the bookmark when returning it so that other borrowers don't get misled by it when referencing. However, it's easy to forget a bookmark in the book if it's not sticking out. Oftentimes, a future borrowers of the book may also forget remove it.
So if you are asked by the librarian when returning the book as to whether it's your bookmark, you may respond in any of the following ways:
No, it isnt mine. It must have been put there by the previous borrower.
or
No, it isn't mine. When I borrowed the book, the bookmark was already there.
or
No, it isn't mine. One of the previous borrowers must have left it in there.
本を読むときはしおりを入れる人が多いですね。自分の本にしおりを入れておくのは全く問題ありませんが、それが図書館で借りた本なら返すときには次の人が混乱しないように取っておかないといけません。

しかし、しおりは本から出ていないと忘れられることが多いです。そして、しばしば次に本を借りた人もそれを取るのを忘れます。

本を返すときに図書館員からそれが自分のしおりか尋ねられたら、次のように返答できます。

No, it isnt mine. It must have been put there by the previous borrower.
(いいえ、私のではありません。前に借りた人が入れたんだと思います)

No, it isn't mine. When I borrowed the book, the bookmark was already there.
(いいえ、私のではありません。私が借りたときにはもうそのしおりは入っていました)

No, it isn't mine. One of the previous borrowers must have left it in there.
(いいえ、私のではありません。前に借りた人が入れたんだと思います)
