    關於 nuptual,

    在"Common Errors in English Usage(英文使用上常見的錯誤)"中指出,

    nuptual是常見的錯, 應該是nuptial

    其實nuptial就是wedding, 使用 nuptial 這個字, 只是咬文嚼字賣弄文字

    但若要使用, 要拼正確 : nuptial

    nuptial

    adj形容詞~

    1. of or relating to marriage or the marriage ceremony 與結婚或婚禮有關的

    2. characteristic of or occurring in the breeding season 在繁殖期出現或特有的

    noun名詞~

    wedding, marriage 婚禮, 結婚

    我覺得" nuptial" vs. "nuptual" 就好像中文 "結婚" vs. "結昏"

    說"結昏"也沒錯, 因為很多人說: 發"昏"才會想"婚" @@

    所以"婚"前協議(prenuptial agreement), 會有人誤拼為"昏"前協議(prenuptual agreement)囉 ~XD

    希望我的資料有幫上版大的忙喔 ~^_^~

    意思是: 婚姻的,婚禮的

    英文解釋: connected with marriage or a wedding

    extra: nuptial bliss 意思是婚姻美滿

    a nuptial mass 意思是婚配彌撒

    nuptials 加一個S就變成婚禮了

    希望對你有幫助
