    一般還說, 否定的句子,習慣用{or}當連接詞Without(No) rhyme or reason這裡的without解釋成『沒有』,帶有否定的意味,故連接詞用 or

    其實 "or" 不一定是 "或" 的意思

    or有時可以= and

    or

    KK: []

    DJ: []

    conj.

    1. 或者;還是

    Either you or I am to go.

    你我之間總有一個人要去。

    You may spend two or three days there.

    你可以在那裡待上兩三天。

    ※※2. (用於否定句)也不※※

    ** Mary never skis or skates. **

    ** 瑪麗從不滑雪,也不溜冰。 **

    3. 否則,要不然

    Hurry up, or you'll be late.

    快點,否則你會遲到的。

    4. 也就是說,換言之

    She studies biochemistry, or the science of life.

    她學生物化學,也就是生命科學。
