水のコップを下さいって英語でなんて言うの?

ファストフード店等でジュースは頼まないけど水が欲しい時に「コップを下さい」って何て言うの。水はソーダの機械で自分でくむので貰いたいのは空のコップです。お店によってはジュースのとは分けているので、「水のコップをください」は何て言うのが自然ですか?

  • Please give me a cup for water

  • May I have a cup of water please?

水のためのコップをお願いするときは「Please give me a cup for water」と言えます。

また、もうちょっと丁寧な言い方は:「May I have a cup of water please?」です。

何かを頼むときは必ず「please」入れます。
それが丁寧です。

  • Can I have a cup for water, please?

★ポイント:お店ですので、普通に【頼むときの公式】を使って大丈夫です。
※そのカップは水を飲むためですので、接着剤はforになります。

ご質問どうもありがとうございます。

確かにジュースやsodaなどとは分けていますね。
「水のコップ」は英語で「water cup」とも言えます。
念のため、「empty」を追加してもOKです。

・Could I have an (empty) water cup, please? (空の水のコップもらっていい?)
・Can I have an (empty) water cup, please? (空の水のコップもらっていい?)

P.S. 「could」は「can」より少し丁寧な感じするかもしれません。

ご参考にしていただければ幸いです。

  • Could I have a cup for water, please?

  • Could I have a empty cup for water, please?

Could I have a cup for water, please? (水のためのコップを一ついただけませんか?)

Could I have a empty cup for water, please?(水のための空のコップを一ついただけませんか?)

for の基本的なイメージは何かに向かっている→のような感じです。for water で水のための 水を飲むためのという目的を指さしているイメージでとらえてください。

can は許可(~していい)や能力(~できる)を示す言葉 コップをもらっていいですか?と許可の意味で使われます。 Could のほうがより少し丁寧な言い方で、日本語でいうと~してくださいませんかという位丁寧な印象です。

  • Please could you tell me if the water is free?

  • Is there a charge for water or may I help myself?

  • I'd like some water please. May I have a cup?

Asking if the water is free of charge will lead to the waiter handing you a cup and instructing you to help yourself.
If you do not want to ask about price, simply inform your server that you would like some water and ask if you may have a cup.

  • Can I just get an empty cup ( with or without ice ) please?

  • Can you please give me an empty cup that I can fill with water please?

If you would like to ask someone working at a restaurant for an empty cup to fill with water from the soda machine, you can say something like "Can I just get an empty cup ( with or without ice ) please?" or "Can you please give me an empty cup that I can fill with water please?". These are some polite ways to express this to someone.

  • Could I please get a water cup?

  • I would like a water cup, please.

A "water cup" refers to the free drink of water at a fast food restaurant. Some fast food restaurants do not always offer a free water cup. It is good to check by asking "Could I please get a water cup?" The staff could then say ye or no depending on what the company policy is.
If you know for a fact that the restaurant offers water cups, you can matter of factly order a water cup by saying, "I would like a water cup, please." When they hand you the cup you can reply with "Thank you."

  • May I have a glass of water please?

  • Can I get a cup? I just want to use it for some water.

Examples:

May I have a cup? I want to use the vending machine just for the water.

I would just like to use the soda machine for some water, may I have a cup please?

I don't want to order a drink but I would just like to have a cup to use for the water in the soda machine if that's okay?

  • I am not going to have a beverage but I would like to get the free water from the soda machine. Could you please give me a cup?

  • Can you give me a cup so that I can avail of the free water from the machine?

Sometimes, we want to save our money and drinking alcohol at a restaurant with food can be quite expensive. Also, drinking water is healthier so sometimes it's a better option.
The waiter or waitress should give you a cup without any hassle if you ask politely

In the first sentence, we explain to the server that we do not want a drink from the menu and we ask politely for a cup.

In the second sentence, the word "avail" means "to make use of".

  • Can I have a cup for water?

  • Can I have a water cup?

Here are three different ways that we can ask for a cup of water to get it from the soda machine. Notice in the first two examples that we can interchangeably use the verbs, "to have," and, "to get." In addition we can also use, "cup for water," and, "water cup," interchangeably as well.
