ing 和 ed 問題

This also worked for me!

這句為甚麼要用 worked 用work不行??

同埋好似working hour 咁

其實我用the hour of the work (工作的時間) 咁樣點解唔得??

還有很多詞都是這樣

還有

They urged on us the need for cooperation.

need for speed

need for 究境是甚麼用法??

    1. This also worked for me!

    用 worked,因為係“過去式”

    用 work 不行,因為"現在式"動詞要複數(+s) ~works

    2. working hour (複合名詞)

    名詞 + 名詞

    working 係名詞,或稱為動名詞(gerund)

    working hour 工作時間 = work-hour = any of the hours of a day during which work is done

    用 the hour of the work (工作的時間) 唔得

    因為,the hour of the work = the work's hour = the hour belongs to the work (解不通!)

    Other examples:

    swimming suit = the suit used for "swimming" (gerund)

    dancing teacher = the teacher who teaches "dancing" (gerund) 重音放在前

    另一解釋

    dancing teacher = the teacher who is dancing (present participle) 重音放在後

    3. They urged on us the need for cooperation. 同 need for speed

    need for 究境是甚麼用法??

    the need for xxx = 對 xxx 的需要/需求

    the need for cooperation = 對 合作 的需要

    the need for speed = 對 速度 的需求

    working hour 果個 working 唔係動詞,

    係形容詞。

    用 worked, 即係話 我曾經用過, 得嘅。

    如用 works (用 work 唔岩),

    即係話我一向如此使用/應用, 無問題, ok 嘅。

    唔係話一定唔得,

    不過有分別,

    working hour......重點講時間

    hour of the work........重點講工作

    > 這句為甚麼要用 worked 用work不行??

    因為 this 是單數 (singular) 你要用 works 才行。
