    1.

    VN的V是verb的意思,而N即Noun的意思,VN其意是表示verb之後要直接跟NOUN

    至於VN to inf的to inf是to-infinitive,所以VN to inf即VERB+NOUN+To infinitive

    2.至於如何能記所有的意思,那就是學問,第一多看書,當這生字在不同時間出現,你就記得

     

     還有,有時一個字有很多意思,但我們總不能每個字每個意思意都記,那麼我們只有選擇性地記:常用的意思

    3. 有一個方法是這樣,每逢學一個生字,當我們查字典知其用法後,就自己嘗試作三句英文句,因為是出於自己的手筆,會容易記得多。

       多唱英文歌也是有幫助。如:

       had better後面原形動詞(bare infinitive),若我們記得聖誕歌you better watch out, you better not cry,也可幫我們記得

    希望幫到你!
