  1. 請問這個版有搜尋功能嗎?

  2. 個人很喜歡這個blog,一直來學習和提升自己的英文水平!<3
    你們要保持更新哦~ ^^

    不過最近不知為何,首頁總是打不開?
    可以麻煩admin跟進一下嗎,謝謝!

  3. 板主您好,我看到ㄧ句英文想請教您
    I saw a shooting star when I stayed in USA
    1.請問該句型是否為 svoc.
    2 when I stayed in USA 名詞子句是否做為 a shooting star
    為的補語。.

    • 在 I saw a shooting star when I stayed in USA. 這句中,when I stayed in USA 為時間副詞子句,並非 a shooting star 的補語。SVOC 句型中,C 乃受詞 O 的補語,即受詞補語,補語可以是形容詞或名詞,如 I found John very tired.,其中 very tired 就是受詞補語。

  4. 想請教版主:
    The room must have been cleaned, hasn’t it?
    The room must have been cleaned yesterday, wasn’t it?
    上面這兩句說法對不對呢?也就是若有明確表過去的時間副詞,則附加問句用過去式,反之用現在完成式。

    He must have been a fool for these ten years, hasn’t he?
    He must have been a fool, wasn’t he?
    上面這兩句說法對不對呢?
    其中我對第二句有些疑惑,為什麼這句沒任何時間副詞,就可以斷定他是詢問過去某一個時間點,用過去式而非現在完成式?

    • must + have + P.P. 就是 must 在表示推測的「一定,肯定,想必,諒必」時的過去式,因此沒有時間副詞 yesterday 也知道它是過去式。

      Must + have + P.P. 的附加問句可以為「haven’t/hasn’t + 主詞」或「didn’t/wasn’t/weren’t + 主詞」。但這兩者的含意並不相同,「haven’t/hasn’t + 主詞」表示過去的動作對現在產生了影響,而「didn’t/wasn’t/weren’t + 主詞」則只單純表示過去的動作。例如:

      • Your English is very good. You must have studied English for several years, haven’t you? (你的英文很好,想必你已唸了好幾年的英文,不是嗎? - 過去的動作產生現在的結果)
      • The road is wet. It must have rained last night, hasn’t it? (地上是濕的,昨晚一定下過雨,不是嗎? - 過去的動作對現在的影響)
      • He must have finished it yesterday, didn’t he? (他一定是在昨天完成工作,不是嗎? - 僅單純表示 finished 這個動作)
  5. 版主你好:

    很高興在這板上看見你解釋winter is come.
    那請問:
    where are you come from?這句的文法正確嗎?
    一般都說:where are you from?或where do you come from?

    如果不正確,原因為何?
    假使正確,原因為何?

    • 既然你知道 Winter is come 中 come 為過去分詞,所以 is 和 come 可同時存在,因為此時 is 是助動詞。但 where are you come from? 中的 are 和 come 都是一般動詞,一個句子中不能有兩個動詞,所以錯誤!

  6. 可否請您解釋下面一句的文法
    He is 70, but most people expect him, health permitting, to seek a second term of office in 2008.

  7. All the factors considered, the committee approved of the application.
    請問上面這句的第一個子句是省略了什麼?

  8. Don’t you think the color of this car is much darker than that of that car?

    請問為什麼than後面不能直接使用that car就好?

  9. Is “everyone” singular or plurel?

  10. What did you forget _______ before you left for class this morning?
    請問此時空格是要填入to do還是doing?

  11. Sunspots are caused when the sun’s surface is disrupted. 這邊的disrupted是被動式還是過去分詞當形容詞使用?

  12. Just want to thank you for this great site. Cheers !

  13. 這裡有三句話都是錯的,但是看不出來哪裡有問題,不好意思請你解答
    1. I learned English very hard, but I still can’t speak it.
    2. Mary knew the secret just as she arrived.
    3. Gambling was legal in this city in order to attract more tourists.

  14. 請問為什麼間接問句的名詞片語用法:Wh疑問詞+toV,沒有why+toV的用法???謝謝

  15. 請問一下,「在門上」的門環是ih / on / at / to the door??
    There is a door knocker ?? the door. 謝謝

  16. “the only really adequate gesture which it is in our power to make in return for the means to preserve our country”我在網路上看到這樣的一段字,但是中間的“which it is…”一直想不透文法規則,感謝你。

  17. 麻煩您說明下面這句的文法架構,謝謝!
    The way the film eventually got made has, like the story itself, a certain ring of destiny to it.

  18. must have pp.是甚麼意思? 昨晚你一定是很晚睡
    You must have gone to bed late last night.和
    You must go to bed late last night.哪一句對?為什麼?

    • Must 最常用來表示推測的「一定,肯定,想必,諒必」,後接 BE 動詞,現在式為 must be,過去式為 must have been/P.P.。所以,You must have gone to bed late last night. 這句是對的。

  19. 請問Mrs. Ms.的複數Mmes. Mses.他們要怎麼發音?謝謝!

  20. Dear Sir/Madam,

    The below sentence is it correct?

    (Please be informed that Mary has made an appointment for medical treatment on 16.08.2015.)

    Thanks for enlighten me.

  21. 請問當對方在書信開頭寫 hope all is well 回信時應該怎麼回應呢 不針對此句話回應會否讓英國人感覺不禮貌
    謝謝

  22. 請問product和production差別是什麼呢?謝謝

  23. 請問 He feels a bit more secure than before.可以寫成 He feels secure a bit more than before嗎? 還是a bit more一定要在形容詞前?謝謝。

  24. 请问I worry you这句话怎么理解?如果把这句话里的worry当作及物动词,那就是“我担心你”。(若是此意,那I worry about you中的about是多余的吗?)但worry这个词也有“使…担心”的意思,照此理解,这句话就是“我让你担心了”。

  25. 中國人見面時,如果有人對我說“你好!”,我一般也會以“你好!”作答。以此類推,如果老外對我說“How are you”,我可不可以同樣回答”How are you”呢?儘管我知道教科書的標準回答是“I am fine. And you?”

  26. 文法題: When you communicate ( ), make particular efforts to keeping your communication clear, simple and unambiguous.

    空格答案是: cross-culturally 我的問題是: make efforts to 接分詞(keeping)對嗎? 是不是要用不定詞(to keep)才對?

  30. 請問這句子They’re not just found at predictable locations, such as train station and office buildigs; you can also come across them while deep inside the alleys of residential areas! 請問裡面的while 是啥用法呢?

  31. His becoming blind was a great calamity.

    請問 這邊的becoming 是甚麼意思並且是甚麼詞性?

    • become 原為連綴動詞,後接形容詞 blind,由於 his 為所有格,後面要接名詞類,所以將 become 變成動名詞 becoming。這句的主詞為動名詞片語 His becoming blind,若動名詞當主詞,動詞須為單數,在此為 was。

  32. 想請教一下,
    通長英式英文在唸數字0時,都會習慣發音為oh,比如郵遞區號或是電話
    那如果同時存在數字的0與英文字母的o,比如BH0 2oP,
    依照英國人的習慣,前面的數字還會唸oh嗎? 還是會唸zero or nought?
    要如何區別?

    感恩

  33. 在某文法書看見副詞子句簡化,與分詞構句

    Because they had been warned, they proceeded carefully.
    簡化
    Because having been warned, they proceeded carefully.
    簡化
    Having been warned, they proceeded carefully.(問分詞構句Having been warned是甚麼詞性? 我看不出有副詞的意味)
    簡化
    Warned, they proceeded carefully. (這句讓人就看不懂了,Warned是過去分詞(adj),能單獨存在?)

    問以上的簡化,以哪一句子最佳?
    謝謝~

    • Having been warned, they proceeded carefully. 最佳。分詞構句的意思是,在兩個主詞相同的子句中,將副詞子句變成分詞構句,來達到句子簡潔的目的,而分詞構句是在修飾主要子句的主詞。

  34. That led to criticism from shops and customers, who said Gucci was interfering in age-old custom they felt was harmless.
    您好,我想請問一下
    上面這句話是不是省略一些字,
    custom和they中間是不是省略which
    they felt was harmless.
    =they felt (it) was harmless.

    還是都沒有省略呢?謝謝。

    • 沒錯,custom 和 they 之間省略了 which,但這個 which 不該省略,因為原句不合文法。正確的句子是 That led to criticism from shops and customers, who said Gucci was interfering in an age-old custom, which they felt was harmless.,在這句中,which = Gucci was interfering in an age-old custom。既然「他們」認為 “Gucci was interfering in an age-old custom” 並無惡意,所以 they 應該是 Gucci 的人員,而不是 customers。

  35. 請問版主:

    “The more you know *of/about* this subject, the easier this course will be.”
    這題的答案是about,但為何of不行呢?know of跟know about的差別何在?謝謝!

    • know about 意為「知曉,通曉」,而 know of 意為「知道有,聽說過」,所以答案為何是 know about 而不是 know of,自是無庸贅述。再舉一例:”I know about 小S.”,講這句話人一定是小S的親戚朋友,如蔡康永;”I know of 小S.”,講這句話的人一定跟小S不熟,只知道或聽說有小S這號人物,但彼此並不認識。

  36. 請問版主:

    I decided to take a trip to Japan because I was feeling spontaneous.
    (我決定去日本旅行,因為我感到很隨興。)
    此去中譯是否有誤?我認為「因為我感到很隨興」這裡翻譯錯誤(不知所云的中文),應為「因為我突然心血來潮」。我的解釋正確嗎?謝謝!

  37. I’m happy to report that my own failures of discernment as a music critic may not be entirely to blame.
    請問為什麼不能用blamed?謝謝~

  38. 請問大家
    The park where the kids went “to” last night is very big.
    to 需要寫嗎?
    where=介+which,如果用了to,就用which代替the park嘛,
    The park which the kids went to last night is very big.
    謝謝

  39. 請問let it go 跟let it be有什麼差別嗎?

    • 這兩者後面若還有其他字,意思都會有很大的不同。即使只有 let it go 跟 let it be,也可能因上下文不同而有不同的理解。若僅就 let it go 跟 let it be 來說,可能意為「讓它走、讓它去」、「就讓它這樣」等等。

  40. He pretended not to see me.
    He does not pretended to see me.

    He seems not to like dancing.
    He does not seem to like dancing.

    請問這兩種寫法意思一樣嗎?謝謝。

  41. Both men and women have nipples and mammary glands, but usually only women have them develop at puberty. This characteristic is uniquely human as other mammals breasts only enlarge during nursing.

    1.but usually only women have them develop at puberty.
    have them在這裡是不是一種很口語的講法?

    2.This characteristic is uniquely human as other mammals breasts only enlarge during nursing.
    句中為什麼使用uniquely而不是unique?
    另外某網站翻譯為:人類及其他哺乳類動物特有的特徵就是養育嬰孩時胸部會脹大
    但原意是不是更接近:這個特徵是人類獨有的,其他哺乳類動物的胸部只在養育嬰孩時脹大(因為前文已說明人類develop at puberty)

  42. 請問版主:
    1.We ask questions with each other.
    2.We ask questions of each other.
    以上二句,何者正確呢? 請指教,謝謝!

    正確:We ask each other questions.

  43. 請問老師,這邊用這些代換關係詞代換,有哪些有誤嗎 ?
    或者有什麼改法比較好的呢 ?

    (O)His failure was a heavy blow from which he never fully recovered.

    (A)His failure was why he never fully recovered from.

    (B)His failure was the reason why he never fully recovered.

    (C)His failure, a heavy blow, was what he never fully recovered from.

    (D)His failure, a heavy blow, was why he never fully recovered from.

    (E)His failure was a heavy blow what he never fully recovered.

  44. 請問
    He walked home feeling very happy.
    句中 feeling 是分詞用法嗎? 但又不是形容詞子句簡化為分詞?

  45. DEAR~
    你好~我是宜庭,想要請問關於貴網站的廣告業務窗口我應該與哪位連繫呢?方便提供窗口的姓名/信箱/聯絡方式嗎?我們可以先發信給窗口做聯絡唷~感謝你 ?

  46. Bug us a little. Be strict and consistent in dishing out discipline. 請問 ” Bug us a little “,是什麼意思呢? 翻譯成“有時煩我們一下”,ok 嗎?

  47. 您好,在 [文法常見錯誤] – “Content 還是 contents 呢?” 內文所引用的例句 : Several well-known websites have closed down due to the high cost of producing original content. (數個知名網站因製作原創內容的成本過高而關門大吉了) (正)

    請問,為何該句是用due to來連接名詞片語 – the high cost of producing original content,而不是使用because of / on amount of / in view of ?

    因為在另一篇名為”due to 還是 because of”的文章中提到,due to的使用必須是主要動詞為be動詞時,然而,前述例句所使用的是主要動詞為一般動詞close,因此,是否應該將例句中的due to 改為because of才正確呢?

    謝謝釋疑!

  48. growl roar snarl bellow

    These are words used in describing sounds. However I am very confused since their meanings are so alike.

    I want to know more specific meanings about these words so I can use them correctly.

    Thank you!!

  49. 您好,我想請問此句中文”他與我分享了一些越南有趣的事”以下英文敘述何者為佳.
    1.He shared some interesting things in Vietnam with me
    2.He shared some interesting things from Vietnam with me
    3.He shared some Vietnam’s interesting things with me

    謝謝

  50. 我觉得第3句最好,因为第1句和第2句有歧义。尤其第1句,会被误解为“他在越南和我分享了一些有趣的事”

    • is 和 are, am 及過去式 was, were 一樣,可當主動詞或助動詞。例如:

      He is a teacher. 這句 is 是當主動詞
      He is eating something. 這句 is 是助動詞 與主動詞 eat 的現在分詞 eating 構成進行式。

  51. 您好,中文“以贏得情人的心”:they will do their utmost to get rid of their own bad habits“ to win the heart of(the person they like)”請問()是這樣翻嗎?謝謝

    get rid of their “own” bad habits 請問 own 一定要加嗎?

  52. 您好,想請問一下thank you for informing me of the result跟thank you for having informed me of the result是通用的嗎還是有什麼差別?另外想請問為什麼第二句的informed是加ed,是被動having been informed然後been省略嗎。非常感謝!

    • 這兩句的意思沒有什麼差異,但以thank you for informing me of the result 為主流說法。由於做 inform 這個動作的人是 you,所以要用主動態 have informed,若是用 have been informed,就變成了 you 是被通知的,文法錯誤。另外,英文不會把被動態省略 been 來變成主動態,除非句子改寫,主詞和受詞對調。

  53. 謝謝您的回覆。所以是因為前面介係詞for的關係所以have變成having,但主動態have informed不變所以inform還是加ed對嗎@@? 非常謝謝
