cake 可不可數?好像有兩種情況?

請問一下cake 可數嗎?

我記得好像有兩種情況,

一種是還沒切之前,一整塊完整的!

另外一種是切成一塊一塊的!

兩種分別是可數還是不可數?

    根據Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English的定義,cake為a soft sweet food made by mixing of flour, fat, sugar and eggs(一種由麵粉、食用油、糖、蛋混合後所做成帶甜味的食物),它可以當不可數名詞也能當可數名詞,看妳想表達的意思決定。

    cake當可數名詞(countable noun)時,例如今天是妳生日,家裡為妳準備了一個生日蛋糕(a birthday cake)。

    cake當不可數名詞(uncountable noun)時,意為沒有特指哪些cake,而是就cake這種食物的集合而言。例如 I gobbled a lot of cake. (我狼吞虎嚥了一堆蛋糕。)

    至於妳所說的"切成一塊一塊的",是將"cake"視為不可數名詞看。這時候,"一塊蛋糕"可以說成"a slice of cake"

    cake是不可數的,如果你加了S的話,意思就變成有很多不同種類的蛋糕

    好問題!其實cake的用法和pizza一樣喔!

    cake可數也不可數

    如果你指的是整塊完整的~~~a cake

    反之,則不能加不定冠詞 "a"

    例:

    A~~My mom is making a cake.我媽正在做cake.(此時就可數)

    B~~I had much cake tonight.我今晚吃了很多cake(此時就不可數)

    或許你要用(量詞)~~~"piece of"~~~片

    How many pieces of cake do you want?你要多少片cake啊?

    此時變成(片)可數,但是cake依然不可數喔!!
