有關於height的問題

Don\'t go up the tower if you\'re afraid of heights.

這句話中的height作何解釋?因為height指高度的時候不是不可數名詞嗎?

為什麼可以加s呢?

這句話沒有錯唷!因為我是從字典上看到的~

SO可以告訴我

I\'m afraid of height.

和I\'m afraid of heights.

這兩句的不同之處在哪裡??

    Don't go up the tower if you're afraid of heights.說明:1.      怕高的高是指『高度』,可當可數或不可數名詞。2.      另外可解釋成『身高』,也是可當可數或不可數名詞。His height makes him stand out in his school.His heights make him stand out in his school.他的高大身材使他在學校裡顯眼。

    Al說明解釋很清楚,補充歸納一下:

    height: (地方的)高度,(人)身高

    heights: (地方的)高處,(人)身材

    本問題問的是加s,heights的意思,heights當然有身高、身材之意,不過依發問問題,應為高處、高的地方之意。

    Height

    高度,一個定點的高度,如梯、建築、牆、遊樂器等等,可見到垂直地面。

    Heights

    高的地方,高處;如山上、高建築物裡的高樓內。

    中文譯起來或許難體會其異,but外國人(英語國家) 應懂其意。

    I'm afraid of height. 我害怕爬高。我有懼高症

    I'm afraid of heights. 我怕到到高的地方。

    這邊height是做高處來解釋,所以是可以加 s 的

    你的問題:

    第一句 I'm afraid of height. 我怕高. 高是名詞

    第二句 I'm afraid of heights. 我怕高處. 高處也是名詞
