until用法

Tony ( )to have children until his little daughter was born. After she won his heart, he decided he wanted a big family.

空格的答案是 hadn't wanted

我想為甚麼不是didn't want

為甚麼 We stayed there until we finished our work.是stayed不是 had stayed

謝謝

    Until you told me, I had never thought of it. 兩件事之間有時差(過去完成式vs過去簡單式),think在tell之前:在你告知我以前,我想都沒想過。

    We stayed there until we finished our work.兩個「過去簡單式」表示無時差,我們一直在那裡(直到做完工作的那個時刻,我們還在那裡)。

    Tony didn't want to have children until his little daughter was born.兩者沒有時差,應該都用「過去簡單式」。(直到他小女兒出生那時,他都還是不想要生孩子。)

    贊同Louis的說法.

    Tony hadn't wanted to have children until his little daughter was born. (X)

    Tony didn't want to have children until his little daughter was born. (O)

    Tony hadn't wanted to have children BEFORE his little daughter was born. (O)

    until用於情況改變, 用過去簡單式即可, 意謂直到...才....(中譯改肯定)

    強調前後順序時, 才會用到過去完成式與過去簡單式的對照.
