    1. E-mail,就是electronic mail電子郵件,也可以寫成e-mail,Email或email;當名詞用時,其實是電子信,是普通名詞,與英文的letter文法上的單複數變化是一樣的,可變化複數。

    I receive many E-mails everyday.

    I've got a lot of junk e-mails(spams) everyday.

    I received three emails yesterday.

    E-mail也可當動詞用,

    Email me when you have time.

    Has he emailed you that list of addresses yet?

    2. 在Email裡,address當可數(Countable)名詞,當然可以變複數,根據規則字尾加+es,Addresses

    There are 45 email addresses in my ADDRESS BOOK(通訊錄).

    3. 正常狀況Fruit是不可數的,但特別強調表示不同種類的水果時,可用複數。

    There are many differnet kind of tropical fruits in taiwan.

    Many kinds of fruits are sold at cheaper price.

    而,Vegetable就是可數。

    所以,如果說我喜歡水果和蔬菜,

    就記住:I like fruit and vegetables.

    英文有時候是蠻Hahaha...的。

    當你看完下段,你真會了解?就記著:就是這樣!哼!

    For an interesting illustration of the principle that the count/non-count distinction lies not in an object but rather in the name for the object, consider the English words "fruit" and "vegetables". The objects that these words describe are, objectively speaking, similar (that is, they're all edible plant parts); yet the word "fruit" is (usually) non-count(UNCOUNTABLE), whereas "vegetables" is a plural count(COUNTABLE) form. One can see that the difference is in the language, not in the reality of the objects. Meanwhile, German has a general word for "vegetables" that, like English "fruit", is (usually) non-count: das Gemse. British English has a slang word for "vegetables" that acts the same way: "veg" [rhymes with "edge"].

    蔬菜和水果這兩個字當然可以加S

    情況也一樣

    我喜歡水果要用有s的,

    ---I/We like fruits/vegetables

    ---she/He likes fruits/vegetables

    不加s的情況如下

    我喜歡的水果是(假如是草莓的話), 沒加s因為只有一項水果

    My favorite fruit is strawberry.

    His favorite fruit is strawberry.

    反之,若兩個水果的話

    My favorite fruits are strawberry, cheery and guava.

    Her favorite fruits are strawberry, cheery and guava.

    關於e-mail的話

    複數當然要加s---emails

    Address若是複數的話也要加s才對---addresses

    最後

    "我的信箱裡面有很多e-mail address"

    我會翻成

    " I have a lot of email addresses in my email account"

    或是 "I have a lot of contact persons in my email account"

    PS我比較喜歡第二個說法ㄏㄏㄏ

    因第一個說法較中式

    S的用法很簡單但難免用錯

    很害怕用錯的話

    你可以打在word上

    小幫手會幫你檢查文法

    希望有幫到你囉

    我的信箱裡面有很多e-mail address

    →I have many addresses in my e-mail box.

    水果 fruit是單複數同型, 所以不可以加s

    蔬菜 vegetables

    如果當成n.用(解釋成蔬菜;青菜), 可以加s

    She likes vegetables.

    如果當成a.用(解釋成蔬菜的), 不可加s

    2006-12-18 13:19:05 補充:

    fruit 解釋為「成果」時, 就可以加s

    They enjoy the fruits of their hard labor.(他們享受自己辛勤努力的成果。)
