英文句子 解說??

The then managing director of the Guinness Brewery got into an argument

over which game bird, the golden plover or the grouse, was the fastest in

Europe.

over是否可以改成 about 為什麼??

However,none of the reference books Beaver checked had a definitive

answer.

請問一下 上面是否有什麼相關文法句構??

none of the regference books 應該是一個主詞吧 怎麼後面可以接

Beaver 呢??

Update:

那 Beaver checked had 之間是否也有關代被省略?

    The then managing director of the Guinness Brewery got into an argument

    over which game bird, the golden plover or the grouse, was the fastest in Europe.

    over是否可以改成 about 為什麼??

    解答:是的,an argument over (或 about) Sth 皆指「為了甚麼事物或觀點」而起爭論。事實上根據 COCA 現代美語最龐大的資料語庫,an argument about 的使用頻率還略為高過 an argument over。

    However, none of the reference books Beaver checked had a definitive

    answer.

    請問一下 上面是否有什麼相關文法句構??

    Beaver 呢??解答:沒錯,意指「Beaver (人名) 所查過的參考書籍當中,沒有一本有明確的答案」。該句也可還原成…none of the reference books (that) Beaver checked had a definitive answer. 只是當關代(that)是受格時,經常被略去。

    那 Beaver checked had 之間是否也有關代被省略?

    回答:沒有。請看更多的例句:

    The girl that I met last night has beautiful long hair. (昨晚認識的那個女孩有很美的長髮) (肯定的語氣) 若這一句改成否定的說法 就成了

    None of the girls that I met last night has beautiful long hair. (昨晚認識的女孩當中,沒有一個有很美的長髮)

    這兩句的 I met has 的結構就等同Beaver checked had,所以這三個字間沒有用到任何的關代

    argument over "a subject" is pretty commonly used.

    Beaver is the subject of your sentence. It is probably a boy's name.

    Beaver checked many reference books and none of them had a firm answer.

    In the 1960's, there was a TV show "Leave it to Beaver".
