問英文雜誌上一小段關於like用法

...........(略)

They(applications) enable you to use your smartphone to do things like play crazy games, watch movies, find things you need, translate signs, and check the weather forecast.

我想問上面的like應該是當"像"沒錯吧?

後面的play是當動詞沒錯吧?(crazy games是名詞,play是動詞)

那為什麼後面的動詞(play、watch、find、translate、check)不是動名詞而是原形動詞?

還是我哪裡理解錯?

謝謝~

Update:

原來如此(這我們沒教過"

感謝天魔小雲的回答

那我想再請教:如果把like當作"像",後面動詞改成動名詞,那麼也對嗎~?

    您好,此處之"like"是表舉例說明 ,如同"such as ",可視為名詞"things"的後位修飾 ,詞性為形容詞。造句時只要注意 like 前後的詞組有等位關係 即可。

    例句如下:

    They enable you to use your smartphone to do things like play crazy games, watch movies, find things you need, translate signs, and check the weather forecast.

    也可寫成:

    They can facilitate you by doing things like playing crazy games, watching movies, finding things you need, translating signs, and checking the weather forecast with your smartphone.

    若有疑問歡迎再度提出,感激不盡!

    您好,當like一詞作為"像"解釋時,後方的確要接上名詞或其他等位詞組。

    茲例舉如下:

    He is crying for food like a baby. (接名詞[片語])

    He is crying for food like he hasn't eaten anything for days. (接名詞字句)

    又例如:

    To read a book is like to enter a wonder land. (接作名詞片語使用的不定詞片語)

    Reading a book is like entering a wonder land. (接動名詞[片語])
