Many(Much、Each...)of the.....

以下2題皆為錯誤,想請問錯誤的地方在哪裡呢?

1.Many of the executive are not available.

2.Jasper is responsible for most of the error.

另外,在書上看到好幾個句子都有Many(Much) of the......或Each(Every) of the....

Ex:Many of the executive...... 不能用Many executive嗎?

Much of the things...... 不能用Much things嗎?

Each of the employee...... 不能用Each employee嗎?

這些Many(Much) of the......或Each(Every) of the.... 的意思到底是什麼呢?

    以下2題皆為錯誤,想請問錯誤的地方在哪裡呢?

    1.Many of the executive are not available.

    代名詞many代表[數目多],應配上[複數可數名詞],即Many of the executives

    2.Jasper is responsible for most of the error.

    代名詞most代表[占的比例大],可配上不可數名詞,或複數的可數名詞。error在本句屬於可數名詞,應改成複數形,即most of the errors

    另外,在書上看到好幾個句子都有Many(Much) of the......或Each(Every) of the....

    Ex:Many of the executive...... 不能用Many executive嗎?

    Many of the executives和many executives的意思不同

    前者是指[高階管理者中有許多人],many是代名詞;後者指[許多高階管理者],many是形容詞。

    Much of the things...... 不能用Much things嗎?

    much是用在[不可數名詞],表示[量大],所以不能寫成much of the things 或much things。Many of the things或many things才對。

    Each of the employee...... 不能用Each employee嗎?

    代名詞each代表[一個],所以可以指[複數可數名詞]中的任何一個,寫成each of the employees。形容詞each只能放在可數名詞單數的前面,即each employee。

    這些Many(Much) of the......或Each(Every) of the.... 的意思到底是什麼呢?

    要寫成every one of the xxxs才對(of後面須配複數名詞,或every直接配上單數可數名詞,表示每個),因為every不能當代名詞,只能當[定詞](determiner)用。其餘的用法己說明如上。

    你如果查大一點的英文字典去看each, most, much, many這些字的例句,會比較容易明白每個字的用法。這裡限於篇幅,只能點到為止。

    版主要注意的不是 many of 能不能改成 many,是你在寫 most of、much of 的時候,對名詞單複數沒概念。 寫出來三個都錯誤。 學到英語任何一個名詞,一定要養成習慣,感覺一下那個名詞的含意到底能不能數。

    1. Many of the executive"s"

    2. most of the error"s".

    後面少加s,(複數)
