「虛線」在英文裡的說法是 dotted line

dot [dɑt] 一般是名詞,意思是一個黑點

不過也可以當作動詞「用黑點去構成…」

虛線是由黑點構成的,所以要用 dot 的分詞 dotted 來當作形容詞「被用黑點構成的」修飾 line (線條)

來造些句:

Please sign your name on the dotted line at the bottom of the document.

(請在文件下方的虛線上簽名。) (注意介系詞是 on 而不是 above )

There is a dotted line connecting the two points on the map.

(有一條虛線連接地圖上的兩個點。)
