國道高速公路局的英文名稱叫 Taiwan Area National Freeway Bureau. 可是我查字典"不付費"的才叫freeway. 我查的是美式用法,是不是此字另有不同用法?

1. highway: a wide road built for fast travel between towns and cities

2. freeway: a large divided highway that does not cost anything to use

3. tollway: a long wide highway that you have to pay to drive on

另 highway 和 superhighway 有何不同?

The "free" in the word "freeway" mainly means on a freeway you can drive very fast and smoothly without the interference of intersections or animals popping up.
It can also describe a highway you can use free of charge.

There are explanations of freeway, highway,… in Wikipedia. You can go check it out.

I know some of the highway collecting fees from a tollbooth (收費站). This is the first time I saw the word "tollway".

If you listen to ICRT often you should have noticed they never call it "freeway", instead, they always call it Chung-Shan "expressway". Our government can name it whatever they want, but I personally never call it "freeway" either.

Yeah, I just heard from ICRT a moment ago "...the expressway from Taipei to Ilan...."

If you ever been to New Jersey, you would find a parkway which you cannot park your car on it. In fact, it's an expressway. English is a crazy language.

LOL! Is this some kind of pun joke?

An express way can be very ugly - simply an overpass in a metropolitan area. But a parkway is different, it is wide, long with beautiful scenes - you can see woods, parks, hills, sometimes meadow on the sides. According to this criterion, none of the expressways in Taiwan are entitled to this term.

parkway
1. Abbr. Pkwy or Pky A broad landscaped highway, often divided by a planted median strip.

turnpike
n.
1. Abbr. Tnpk. or Tpk. A toll road, especially an expressway with tollgates.
2. A tollgate.
