爭對most determiner一問

引用:爭對most代名詞一問as a determiner (before a noun): Most shops will be closed over the Christmas holiday.(after ‘the’): Which athlete won the most medals? Macmillan Publishers Limited 2007 像那種放在名詞前面的most他本身是一個determiner嘛?像是There is a student in the park它跟”a student”的,“a”是同一種功能嗎? Most shops 翻譯起來像是大多數的商店The most medals 翻譯起來好像是 最著名的獎牌

Update:

那個引用:爭對代名詞一問,主要是內容中提到determiner

而我有疑惑才在此提出

Update 2:

超連結沒打好

以下是引用網址

Update 3:

我的問題點是這個

"determiner" is used in relation to the superlative, because it needs "the".

Update 4:

xylinum :

謝謝糾正

    Which athlete won the most medals?

    可寫作:Which athlete won most medals?(將the省略)

    這裡的the most是形容詞many在做比較時的最高級,the在這裡不是determiner,只是用來標示這個most是形容詞many的最高級,其功能類似標示不定詞的to(我們不能將不定詞裡的to歸在介系詞項目下)。因為determiner的條件是用在名詞前,用來標示你所說的對象為何,可以是任一或某一,但most是形容詞,所以前面的the不符determiner的條件。

    Which athlete won the medal?這裡的the才是determiner 。

    柯旗化<新英文法>p.182指出most如用作[大多數]時,其前面不加the:

    most learned men = [大多數]有學問的人(most是形容詞)

    a most learned men = 一個[很]有學問的人(most是副詞)

    2012-12-03 13:13:19 補充:

    <遠東新世紀英漢辭典>p.900

    He won (the) most prizes. = 他得最多的獎。

    (指數量最多,most是形容詞many的最高級,常寫作the most,但the可省略)

    但在當[大多數]解時,most通常不加the在前面。

    He worked (the) most.

    This troubles me (the) most.

    後兩句的most是副詞much的最高級(程度最高)。

    as a determiner

    (before a noun): Most shops will be closed over the Christmas holiday.

    (after ‘the’): Which athlete won the most medals?

    我可能是因為字典這樣子寫所以混淆了
