英文文法問題, 不太明白

很多時都看到有些英文句後面會加多個with, 例如:

I use charcoal to start a fire to barbeque with.

I prefer to use ballpoint pens to write with.

請問為什麼加with, 和這個with在這里有什麼意思呢? thx~

    It is a style of writing. Two sentences are combined and words that appear for the second time will be left out."barbecue with " , "write with " are verb collocation = verb + preposition (used together) ; with means "use/using

    1. I use charcoal to start a fire. I barbecue with the fire.

    I use charcoal to start a fire to barbeque with.

    2. I prefer to use ballpoint pens. I write with ballpoint pens.

    = I prefer to use ballpoint pens to write with.

    Zanon:

    with是英文文法上叫介詞(preposition)的, 一般放在動詞後解作 ' 用 ' 的意思。

    你可能說你句子開頭已有 use(用) 字, 但這只是巧合, 如下例:

    I prefer a ballpen to write with.

    I would rather have charcoal to start a fire with.等也是解' 用 ' 的意思。
