seem 加上 not 的寫法???

She seemed to not have slept well last night.

Tim seemed not to have finished the paper.

請問一下 這兩句 not的位置不同

到底哪一句有誤?

還是這兩句都正確呢?

Update:

還有一句

如果寫成

Tim seemed to have not finished the paper.

這樣是對的句子嗎?

    傳統英文文法認為 "to be", "to have" 這些 infinitive 中間不可插入其他詞語

    現代英文文法認為如果不影響意思是可以的﹐稱之為 "split infinitive" ﹐例如 "to not have" 等。

    一些英文考試如 GMAT, SAT, TOEFL 是容許 "split infinitive"

    這也解釋了為何google找到很多 "seem to not have" 的用法

    not在修飾不定詞時,應放在不定詞的前面。不可寫成to have not finished或to not have slept

    Tim seemed not to have finished the paper.只有這樣才對。

    其它例句有:I begged him not to go out.

    2009-04-30 13:49:19 補充:

    因為副詞not是修飾整個不定詞片語,不應放在不定詞片語的中間,變成只修飾不定詞其中某一部分字。
