whether 的用法?!

如果我想話仲未決定好做唔做一樣野/去唔去一到地方.... 應該點講???


not yet decided whether

still not decided whether to

unsure whether


同埋 decide 係上面點解用ed的???

如果唔用ed又有咩例子?? (*都係問緊連埋whether的用法)

ps: 希望高手可以解答... thanks

    decide 加 ed 是因為此句是用 present participle (has/have+(v.)+ed) ,那句用yet ,所以要加 ed 。

    whether 是用於問人但不用問問題的方式,是用在陳述句。我們通常問人是動詞或是 how 和 wh- question 開頭。

    E.g. Are you kidding? Do you like me? Which one would you like? What is your name? How are you?

    而 whether 是 conjunction ,用來連接句子,大多會用 or 一起用,意思是 : 是否或是無論。

    E.g . Whether he comes or not, the party will go ahead. (無論他或不去,派對也會繼續進行。)

    I don't know whether you like flowers. (我不知道你是否喜歡花。)

    我覺得那兩個用法都沒問題 (not yet decide whether / still not decided whether to) ,但我比喜歡用 still not decided whether to ,因為你想話仲未決定好,有 still 感覺上可以更加表達到意思,我認為。

    whether 本身不像 after / before 那些,有特定的 tense,after / before 要用past participle等,when / while / As 要用 past continuous等。所以主要要看篇 passage 的 tense。
