Reflexive Pronouns for Emphasis

We can also use a reflexive pronoun to show that the speaker is giving emphasis to a particular noun or pronoun.

Example: The movie star herself shook hands with us.

但我这样做的一道题为什么就不对呢?

Mrs Pravin herself mops.

*请用中文解答

    你這句Mrs Pravin herself mops,反身代名詞作強調用法:問題並不是出於反身代名詞的位置與本身,而是mops這個動詞,因mop通常都是用作及物動詞(transitive verb),意謂”拖”或”擦”,是需要一個受詞;而你這句就是因為缺乏了受詞,以至導致它錯誤。

    你可以寫成:Mrs Pravin herself mops the floor 或 Mrs Pravin herself mops XX

    但其實,就算這樣寫,也有點怪,因為你用簡單現代式;若你要說:Mrs Pravin她正自己拖地,應該說成

    Mrs Pravin herself is mopping the floor 或 Mrs Pravin is mopping the floor herself.

    其實若你有甚麼英文文題,你可以寫電郵到明報”問聞切”
