    like (someone) do 意思是「像某(種)人做的那樣」。 其實它是省略了 the way「那樣」,原本應該是 like the way (someone) do。

    在句型上,like (someone) do 通常出現在句尾。do 在這裡的用法,文法上稱為「替代性動詞」,替代前面已經出現的動詞部分。這種 do 的用法很多:

    A: "Do you think he will call?"

    B: "He might do."

    (你認為他會打電話過來?)

    (也許會吧)

    這裡的 do 取代前面提過的動詞 call.

    所以凡是句子中出現 like humans do 或 like lovers do 這類的字眼,前面一定有很明確的動詞部分,而 do 就是取代那一部分。例如:

    Animals enjoy playing like humans do.

    這裡 do 取代 enjoy playing. 原句的意義應該是

    Animals enjoy playing like the way humans enjoy playing.

    (動物像人那樣喜歡玩。)

    但這樣說囉哩八梭,沒人會這樣講。

    再舉長一點的例句:

    Special Education services, safe buildings – these things cost money just like teachers do.

    辦理特殊教育、提供安全(教室)建築,這些都和雇用教師一樣花錢。

    The little boy and the little girl kiss like lovers do.

    do 取代 kiss.

    (這男孩跟這女孩像情人那樣親吻。)

    可以舉例來說明

    例1 : 小美人魚在希望有一双腿時, 說:

    I want to walk like humans do. 我真想像人類一樣走路

    例2:

    I really hope that we can kiss each other like lovers do.

    我真希望我們能像愛人們親吻彼此

    例3

    I want to meet a right person and get married just like common people do.

    我只是想要像一般正常人一樣遇到對的人然後結婚
