又是英文文法問題時間

比較多問題想問,concept想清!

在此先多謝解答的人, 希望可以留意小人會否回覆你的解答..因為希望可以完全清楚

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. 問題一 :"I'm sure you could have written it a lot neater."

點解要轉成"I'm sure you could have written it a lot neater."?

問題二 :: a lot其實係咩詞性? adv.嗎?

問題三 : 應可以改成a lot neatly嗎?

問題四 : 如果問題一的句子唔得,咁以下句又有錯嗎?

-1."You should study harder" (hard作為adj.的比較級)

-2."You should study more hard" (hard作為adv.)

2. Tom would not say who he thought should succeed.

點解唔係用whom? who he thought -> he thought xxx.... xxx應是object.

3. 可以省略"should"的生字

例如: It is imperative that you study instead of hunting jobs.

在此imperative為可在後句省略"should"的字, 但字典沒有標名哪些字可以在後面省略"should". 請問有無表可以列明?

4. On Saturday, an Apple Daily reporter was questioned by police after shouting out a question on the June 4 crackdown to President Hu Jintao.

點解係by police而唔係by the police? 警隊應"the police"而唔係police

5. Post reporters interviewed 231 people during the rally, of whom 126 said Li's death had motivated them to join the annual march.

of whom 126 係咩結構? 點解唔係126 of whom?

6. One of activists said she had twice been forced to strip naked by officers, which she believed was an attempt to humiliate her.

呢句句子有無問題?

Update:

打錯,應是轉成a lot better

而家睇下你地d回答先...

Update 2:

多謝哂一d回答先,但有野想問

1.關於我點解會認為係126 of whom, 我係參考左其他pronoun既應用

eg:She likes reading newspaper, the international news part of which atracts her most.

2.其實第6條問題我改左,原文應是in what 而唔係which, 2者有什麼分別? in what又係咩文法黎?

Update 3:

唔關我事啊

Update 4:

有無人可以答到我....

1.關於我點解會認為係126 of whom, 我係參考左其他pronoun既應用

eg:She likes reading newspaper, the international news part of which atracts her most.

2.其實第6條問題我改左,原文應是in what 而唔係which, 2者有什麼分別? in what又係咩文法黎?

Update 5:

照計She likes reading newspaper, the international news part of which atracts her most.

唔會可以轉成She likes reading newspaper, of which the international news part atracts her most.

Update 6:

what sources do you have to support your claim that they are interchangeable?

Update 7:

I don't think "She likes reading newspaper, of which the international news part atracts her most." is grammatically correct.

    1. I'm sure you could have written it a lot neater.

    This sentence should be rewritten as:

    I'm sure you could have written it a lot more neatly.

    The reason: you have to use adverb instead of adjective to modify the verb.

    "a lot" functions as an adverb (of degree), intensifying another adverb "more".

    No, according to the meaning of the sentence, you should use the comparative form of the adverb, i.e. "more neatly". Besides, you would normally say something like "very neatly" but not "a lot neatly".

    e.g. I'm sure you will write it very neatly.

    You should study harder. (correct) "harder" is an adverb

    You should study more hard. (incorrect)

    Please note that the comparative form of "hard" (adjective and adverb) is always "harder".

    2. Tom would not say who he thought should succeed.

    It is correct to use "who" instead of "whom" because "who" is the subject of the dependent clause (interrogative content clause).

    The question: Who he thought (that) should succeed ?

    The answer: He thought (that) Perter [answer of who] should succeed.

    3. 可以省略"should"的生字

    It is much more common in American English to use a special verb form called the subjunctive when talking about events that are uncertain. However, British English speakers would probably convey the same idea using "should" (modal auxiliary verb).

    The subjunctive is typically used after two structures:the verbs: ask, command, demand, insist, propose, recommend, request, advise, suggest + thatthe expressions: it is desirable, essential, important, imperative, necessary, vital + thatExamples:

    The president insists that pollution (should) be reduced.

    It is essential that we (should) decide today.

    4. 點解係by police而唔係by the police?

    The word "police" in the sentence actually refers to "a police officer" or "some police officers" (警察) but not "police force" (警方).

    "123 (people)" is the subject of the relative clause, so it must be placed after the relative pronoun, as required by the grammar rules.

    哎! 不知道為什麼我被Yahoo扣除100分? 說:意見內容違規

    2012-07-25 15:59:52 補充:

    (5) determiners like many, some, all, none, ...etc. and numbers, which are the subject of the relative clause, can be placed in front of the "of which" and "of whom". You may use "whose" for other possessive forms.

    Therefore, "123 of whom ... " is correct.

    依小弟之愚見,第6句是否應該加一個"the"呢(如下)?

    One of ”the” activists said ...

  • 9 years ago

    1. 問題一:你兩句好似係一模一樣喎!邊有轉到啫?!

    問題二:有人認為係noun,有人認為係adverb。而我認為呢度好明顯係adverbial 嘅作用,所以應該係comparative adverb.

    問題三:唔得,因為a lot喺呢度係表示「much」嘅意思,所以應該跟一個比較級形容詞,例如:much better,我哋唔會話much well。

    問題四:1. 冇問題。2. 唔啱!你呢句句子本身個意思係「你要更加努力學習」吖嘛,要表示「更努力」一係就「harder」,一係就改用間述「pay more effort to」。「more hard」本身文法有問題,咁嘅表達係錯誤嘅比較級寫法。如果一定想用類似結構,可改為「you should study much harder.」

    2. 「whom」係替代who為受詞嘅 formal form,例句中改用whom亦可以,不過一般對話或者simple english我哋都唔會咁講,今時今日formal form通常只會用喺公文上。而重要嘅係「whom」雖係「who」嘅受詞代理,但唔係話「who」就必定係主詞or唔可以係受詞,「who」本身係主受同形嘅,即係可以係受詞,所以為咗簡便起見,唔理係主詞定受詞,多數人都會一律用「who」,而慳返唔使佢係主詞定受詞。

    3. 喺句中,imperative嘅意思係「好重要嘅」、「必須嘅」,個字詞本身已經帶有「should」嘅意思,咁當然唔需要再喺後面加個「should」字啦。至於幾時可以省略邊啲字,係要視乎句形結構,字義語法而定,唔能夠一概而論。(所以字典裡面唔會有表列囉!)

    4. 你啱,比較常用同通順應該係「the police」,不過佢唔加determiner都唔可以話佢錯嘅。

    5. 例句中,「whom」係pronoun,指代嗰231個受訪者嘅整體,「of whom」嘅結構就係好簡單嘅prepositional ph. 囉,意思係呢班人當中,「126」係quantifier。其實你唔應該問「of whom126」嘅結構,而係應該問「of whom 126 said」嘅結構先啱。

    6. 文法冇錯囉。

    我支持另外那位網友的對問題 2. 的答案,他是對的。

    She likes reading newspaper, the international news part of which atracts her most.

    可以轉成

    She likes reading newspaper, of which the international news part atracts her most.

    冇問題喎。
