有關一句英文中的幾個字所代表的涵意?

The altruism of the nursing profession is taken for granted.

護士職業的愛他主義乃是當然之事。

請問其中的taken for granted所代表的是什麼?

那就單指granted在這單指的是什麼意思?

謝謝~

還有可以請問有哪一個網站可以線上查英文單字並可以發音~

    這是一組片語

    take ... for granted:認為(某人/某事)是理所當然

    e.g.Children often take it for granted that their parents will take care of them.

    孩子都把父母的照顧視為理所當然。

    (1) take.......for granted 片語 → 視.......為理所當然

    (2)granted

    釋義 同義字/反義字

    conj. (連接詞 conjunction)

    假定;就算

    EX:

    Granted that you are correct, you may find it hard to prove your point.

    就算你對,可你要論證這一點卻非易事。

    (3) 雅虎字典
