    till (TILL) 和 until (UNTIL , 只有一個 L ) 其實還是有點不同..

    1. until 比 till 為更正式的用法, 且till 通常不放句首.

    2. until 指 up to that time 的意思, 大多和 not 否定式連用.

    I will not get started until she arrives safely.

    (直到.... 動作才開始....)

    3.若引導的子句表示持續性動作(如 stay , wait) , 則主要子句動詞用肯定式.

    I will keep waiting for you till the moment you arrive safely.

    (動作一直持續, 直到...... )

    比較簡單的方法就是否定句用until, 肯定句用till.

    通常until是指直到什麼時候,之後就停止;

    但是till是指直到什麼時候還繼續。舉例如下:

    I have been interested in chemistry until now.我到現在一直對化學有興趣,但以後不再喜歡化學。

    I have been interested in chemistry until now.我到現在一直對化學有興趣,以後還是喜歡化學

    untill (X)

    until (O)

    till = until 用法相同

    Our holiday will last till/ until next week.

    I won't forgive him till/ until he says sorry to me.
