    1. is enjoying是動詞enjoy的「現在進行式」(助動詞is+主要動詞的現在分詞enjoying),表示現在enjoy正在發生當中。

    playing table tennis是動名詞片語,在本句是當動詞enjoy的受詞。

    2. 因為有助動詞must在前面,後面的動詞就不必依第三人單數的原則加上s,而用原形動詞了。He is a soldier. He must be brave.

    難怪prisoner大師覺得兩句的英文很鬼異。確實很有道理。

    那兩句看起來像是中式英語。

    通常英語會說成:My father is playing ...因為這種情境下如果說我老爸喜歡xxx,是畫蛇添足。

    My daughter will be excited because the doll has blonde hair.

    因為my daughter是兩人談話的中心。且對講話者來說,daughter比doll跟自己的關係較親,資訊的先後應是由近及遠,由親至疏,這樣才語序自然。

    用字錯誤:「詭異」才對。
