one enough的意思

Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I have been happily married for 13 years. We have a beautiful 9-year-old daughter. I would like to have another baby. I am 36 years of age, and my husband is 40. He feels it is too late for us to have another child. He insists that it would not be fair to the new baby to have parents who are in their 60s when he or she is only 24.

If I let my husband win this battle, I'm afraid I will look back in a few years and regret not having had another child. Will you please tell me what you think about this? — Is "One Enough" in Seattle?

請問上文中的One Enough 是什麼意思

    One enough 你不可以將它們看成是一個單位的片語,如果你這麼看的話難怪你就看不懂了。

    Is one enough in Seattle?

    這裡的 one 是主詞,enough 是形容詞當作主詞補語。

    is one (child) enough? 的意思就是"一個(小孩)夠嗎?"

    這是呼應寫信人的困擾,不知到底是要不要再生一個,一免日後懊悔,所以才向 Ann Landers 求助。

    所以回答就可能會是:

    1. 是的,一個夠了:Yes, one (child) is enough.

    2. 不是,一個並不夠:No, one (child) is not enough.

    透過回答我想你應該清楚這句話的意思了。

    因為one enough直接翻的意思是"一個就夠了"!

    我想在這裡的one enough是指"一個小孩就足夠了嗎"?

    整篇文章很明顯是談到自己和丈夫為了是否多生一個小孩的問題而有意見上的衝突。所以,這句可能就是問:Is one child enough (for us) in Seattle?一個小孩這樣夠嗎?

    後面加上in Seattle,可能只是附帶說明,自己目前住在西雅圖。
