their food 還是 its food

I have been to that Japanese restaurant , their food is great.


難道說 their代表的是 餐廳裡的人 所以複數?

看到很多網路上評論都打their food is nice

不知道是亞洲文法太差 習慣以中文思考 (他們的食物很好吃) 還是外國人將錯就錯

麻煩給我一個正確解答 謝謝


忘了+ and 請無視

    You use their instead of 'his or her' to indicate that something belongs or relates to a person without saying whether that person is a man or a woman. Some people think this use is incorrect.

    see p.1615 Collins Cobuild English Dictionary for Advanced Learners


    在你句子裡的their food可視為是餐廳「裡的那些服務人員們所供應」的食物,而不是「餐廳」的食物。中文也可能用同樣的講法:我去了那間餐廳,但(他們的)服務很差。

    多數人習慣用their,而且比較常聽到的口語說法是: They have good food.

    its是 the restaurant's

    那 their是什麼的所有格?

    習慣上是用their food.是因為餐館是人在經營的。

    但是用its food也聽得懂。

    Let me give you one more example:

    I went to a club last night and their waiters were super cute.

    "their" is commonly used for no reason.

    > 所以英文表達一個服務業的所有格...


    I went to the White House yesterday and their bathrooms were super clean.

    是its food因為是代表它(餐廳)的食物
