dont you know的用法?

don't you know 後面好像接子句比較多?

但如果我想說

你難道不知道減少塑膠袋的使用可以.....

這句的話

我要怎麼表達?

don't you know reduce use of plastic bag...

這樣對嗎?

還是說後面省略that的話

要用 to reduce 或是 reducing 比較正確? 謝謝

    don't you know 後面好像接子句比較多?

    不必有這樣的刻板印象.

    Don't you know + 受詞

    受詞為名詞、代名詞、名詞片語、名詞子句皆可.

    Don't you know him? (代名詞)

    Don't you know the truth? (名詞)

    Don't you know the effect of the refusing him? (名詞)

    Don't you know how to swim? (名詞片語)

    Don't you know what to do? (名詞片語)

    Don't you know where to start? (名詞片語)

    Don't you know where you can find him? (名詞子句)

    Don't you know when the train will leave? (名詞子句)

    Don't you know (that) smoking will damage your health? (名詞子句)

    你難道不知道減少塑膠袋的使用可以.....

    Don't you know (that) reducing use of polybags will/can.....?

    註:

    1) use第一次提到時不加the, 其後提到時才加the.

    2) 名詞子句前的that可以省略, 除非置於句首當作大主詞.

    3) 動名詞片語或不定詞片語都可以當名詞用, 本句的reducing改為to reduce

    是可以的, 只是後者含有「尚未做; 要去做」的意思.

    to reduce如譯為「為了要」減少, 是副詞片語, 而不是本題中作為名詞片語之語意.

    1. Don't you know (that) reducing the use of plastic bags can/will...

    最好避免省略 that, 又使用 to reduce, 句子開頭變成 Don't you know to reduce... 會造成混餚,很多讀者需要重唸一次才能釐清。

    2. Don't you know that, if we use less plastic bags, we can/will...

    "to reduce the use of plastic bags" 的實際用法:

    The easiest way to reduce the use of plastic bags is to recycle the ones already in your home. (http://www.ehow.com/way_5289)

    reducing the use of plastic bags意思是「減少塑膠袋的使用.....」,

    to reduce the use of plastic bags意思是「為了要減少塑膠袋的使用.....」。

    你要用的是「減少塑膠袋的使用」,也就是reducing the use of plastic bags。

    你要的這句話就是Don't you know (that) reducing the use of plastic bags may......?(你難道不知道減少塑膠袋的使用可以.....?)
