英语学习资料:三组易混淆高频词组辨析

樱桃小丸子 发表了文章 • 1 个评论 • 2442 次浏览 • 2017-07-04 14:56 • 来自相关话题

It’s或its?

许多英语学习者都可能觉得因为加了撇号的原因,很难理解‘it’s’和‘its’这两个词之间的区别。

在英语当中,撇号可以被用来表示拥有,所有。例如‘my father’s pet’意思为宠物属于我的父亲。

然而,在使用‘it’的情况下,其所有格形式‘its’没有使用撇号。

"The airport had to cancel all its flights due to the bad weather."

由于恶劣天气机场不得不取消所有的航班。

"The plant has lost all of its flowers."

这株植物所有的花都凋谢了。

撇号同样可以在缩略词汇时使用。当我们缩略词汇时,我们可以用撇号使其变短,这通常在口语中使用。

‘It’s’是it is和it has的缩略形式。

"It's going to be a great holiday!" [where 'it's = 'it is']

这将是一个很棒的假期![在这里,‘it’s’=‘it is’]

"It's been a long time since we went to the park." [where 'it's = 'it has']

从我们去公园起,已经过了好长时间了。[在这里‘it’s’=‘it has’]

注意,永远不要在its后面加撇号,这是错误的用法。在英语中是没有its’的。






Who和whom

‘Who’和‘whom’可能经常会引起人们的混淆,所以今天我们就来详解以下这两个词的区别。阅读文章了解更多吧。

‘Who’和‘whom’可以用来谈论人。

何时使用‘who’以及何时使用‘whom’可以依据回答该问题时是用he/she还是him/her来决定。

意思就是:

He/she 用来回答who提出的问题;  

Him/her 用来回答whom提出的问题。

例如:

A: "Whom should I vote for?"

A:我该投票给谁?

B: "You should vote for him."

B:你应该投票给他。

A: "Who was the last to leave the building?"

A:谁是最后一个离开大楼的?

B: "He was last."

B:他是最后一个。

Alternate的不同含义

如果你对于‘alternate’作为动词和形容词的不同含义感到困惑,阅读今天的英语点滴来学习更多吧!

‘Alternate’可以被用于动词,也可以作为形容词。

作为动词时,‘alternate’可以表示一件事在另一件事之后发生,二者交替重复。通常用于谈论某事在两件事物之间进行。

"She alternated between freestyle and backstroke during her swimming lesson today."

今天的游泳课上她在自由泳和仰泳之间交替练习。

"He has been alternating between his parents' place and his friend's place during the school break."

在学校假期期间,他在他的父母家和朋友家交替居住。

其他形式包括:‘alternating’和‘alternated’

‘Alternate’作为一个形容词可以表示每隔一个的意思。例如,如果我们谈论天数,这个词可以表示每隔一天。

"Cycling to the city is allowed only on alternate days."

每隔一天才可以骑自行车去市区。

"They go to the park every alternate Sunday."

他们每隔一周的周日,他们会去公园。 查看全部

主持人直播睡着了 同事笑而不语
A sleep-deprived Tucker Carlson caught grief from his co-hosts when he dozed off during a live broadcast of Fox & Friends.
美国主持人塔克•卡尔森有些睡眠不足,他在节目《Fox & Friends》直播现场居然睡着了,与他一起制作节目的同事目睹了全过程。
 
Carlson, one of the three regular hosts of the Fox News morning show, claimed he had a good excuse - he was up late filling for Sean Hannity on the 9pm broadcast of his show. The conservative pundit's co-hosts didn't let him off the hook with that excuse, though.
卡尔森是福克斯早间直播节目三位常驻主持人之一,他自认为有个很充分的理由来解释这一状况:前一天晚上9点顶替Sean Hannity主持脱口秀节目,他睡得太晚了。但这位保守派评论员的同行却不让他用这个借口开脱。
 
As Carlson stretched awake after rousting himself from his slumber, Clayton Morris teased, 'Good to see you! Welcome to Fox & Friends.'
当卡尔森从沉睡中醒过来,舒展身体时,克莱顿•莫里森还开玩笑说:“见到你真高兴,欢迎回到《Fox & Friends》。”
 
Later he added: 'In 15 years of doing this program, I don't think that's ever happened.' Alisyn Camerota helpfully handed Carlson a venti cup of Starbucks coffee.
后来他还说:“我做这个节目15年了,从没想过会发生这种事。” 艾莉森•卡梅洛塔还递给卡尔森一大杯星巴克咖啡。
 
The host pleaded for sympathy. 'You know what it is, I sat in for Sean Hannity last night. It went late,' he said. And, all of a sudden I was sitting there and I was having these happy thoughts and I just dozed off.
这位主持人还恳请他人理解同情一下自己。他说:“你们知道吗,我昨天晚上就在做《Sean Hannity》节目,直到很晚才结束。然后一恍惚我就突然坐在这里了,接着头脑里闪过许多愉快的想法,然后就睡过去了。”
 
'And then I heard one of our evil cameramen cackling in the background. I know which one of you it is.'
“后来我听见后面摄制组里的一个员工笑声不止。我可听得出那个声音是谁的。”
 
Carlson also thought he was fine to take a nap because the show was on a commercial break. Unfortunately, it appears he snoozed through the commercials. He was still nodded off in his seat when the cameras cut back to him.
卡尔森觉得小睡一下也无所谓,因为正好是节目的广告时间。但不走运的是他好像还在插播广告的时候打起了呼噜。等镜头切回演播室后,他还坐在座位上垂头睡觉。
 
'I know we're not on television, so it doesn't bother me,' he said. But, as it dawned on him that he was indeed on air, he gets a little red-faced.
卡尔森说:“我知道这段时间不用上电视,所以对我也没啥影响。”但当他发现自己身在直播过程中时,便显得又有些脸红。
 
'Wait, are we honestly live?' he asks. His co-hosts simply laugh.
他问到:“诶,等等,我们已经开始直播了?”此时他的同事们只得笑而不语。 查看全部
