out of(prep + prep)?

成日見到out of 好似好加怪咁

example: He is capable of lying to get out of trouble.

尼句get out of 點解可以prep + prep?

Out of係咪一個phrase..仲有佢可以點用@.@?

    所謂+這樣,+那樣,是一般[ 組合 ]方式的字型,才直得去記住.

    例如:be+pp=被動式...have+pp=完成式...to+v=不定詞...V+ing=動名詞/現在分詞.

    如果不是一種既定的[ 組合 ]是唔直得去記,例如( prep + prep ).因為prep是構成短語,各有各去演繹/修飾/解說句前.自由度很大,不是+,而是再去演繹/修飾/解說.

    He is capable of lying to get out of trouble.( out.在此句不是prep.而是adv去形容to get.)

    He(subject)......is(vi)............................................................他 是

    capable of lying.....(phrase as subject complement).........具有說謊的能力

    to get(infinitive) out( adv.形容to get構成infinitive phrase)(使)去得到...擺脫/免受

    of trouble...(prepositional phrase)..................................有關的...困境/責罵.

    *out of ..........out是歸左邊的[ 不定詞短語 ].......of是歸右邊的[ 介詞短語 ].兩者加埋是一phrase.
