這個句型,important for/to 可以互換嗎?

[奇摩字典]

important

a. (形容詞 adjective)

重要的,重大的[(+to/for)]

It is important to see that everything goes well.

重要的是確保一切順利。

It is important to learn to communicate.

學會溝通思想很重要。

Q:那麼下面這個句型,〔important to〕〔important for〕可以互換嗎?

Camels are important for transportation in deserts.

Camels are important to transportation in deserts.

若它們不能互換,請問,它們的意義內涵分別為何呢?

謝謝各位高手為我解惑.

    不行!!

    to的後面是加原型動詞,for的後面則是加名詞或動名詞.一個是講動作,一個是講一個東西.

    用for的畫,句子是Camels are important for transportation in deserts.(駱駝對沙漠的運輸是重要的).transportation是名詞,指運輸這個東西.

    用to的話句子是Camels are important to transport in deserts.(要在沙漠中運輸,駱駝是重要的).transport是動詞,指運輸這個動作.

    其實翻成中文意思都是一樣的,只是對英文來說用法不同.括號裡的解釋是為了能更讓你區別詞性的不同所以刻意這樣翻.....

    important to + Noun 也是可能的一種句型

    When you mean that you care or think about something a lot, say that it is important to you, not that it is 'important for' you.

    Nothing could be more important to me than my family.
