real&really的問題

real及really的差別我查了一下

real是形容詞也是副詞

當形容詞時~Is this real leather or plastic?這是真皮的還是塑膠的?

當副詞時~He was real sorry.他真後悔。

really是副詞

It's really cold today.今天很冷。

我不懂的是real既然可當形容詞也可當副詞那really的出現在要幹麻呢?

就上述的那句He was real sorry.這時我會寫really來修飾sorry這個形容詞阿~可是這裡為什麼會用real呢?

It's really cold today.跟He was real sorry.在我看來是一樣的東西為什麼一個用real一個用really?

如果real純當形容詞我很容易去辨別他跟really使用上的不同

可是我要如何去區分何時用real當副詞何時用really呢?

可以跟我說明一下嗎?

    以下例句皆擷取自Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English

    * real

    real做副詞用為美式英語口語用法

    real可以當形容詞和副詞, 當程度副詞使用的時候類同 very

    而且副詞僅此一種用法, 無其他

    參照以下例句, 藉由句子熟悉它的用法:

    1. He's real cute.

    2. It was real nice to see you again.

    3. He got up real close to the bear and took a picture.

    4. I think it was real sweet that she called me herself.

    5. The sidewalk was real wet and slippery.

    6. He was real sensitive during the dinner, and so was Ann.

    7. I felt something real heavy on my chest.

    8. I know my kids real well.

    9. I remember all this part real clear.

    10. I tried to pray, real hard I tried.

    * really

    really是正式的用法, 書寫時會用really而不會用real

    really只能做副詞用, 而且有較多種用法

    不只可以當very用, 還有其他用法

    做very用時的例句:

    1. a really good film

    2. It was really cold last night.

    3. He walks really slowly.

    4. I'm really, really sorry.

    5. Considering this was your first time, I think you did really well.

    6. Do you think she's really sorry?

    7. Don't trust James -- all he's really interested in is your money.

    8. I'm always really hungry by noon.

    9. Yet it was not really cold here; the temperature was well above freezing point.

    結論:

    口語其實兩個都可以混用, 但是formal writing的時候會用really, 而不會用real, 至於口語用法時兩者的差別, 很難給兩者下一個明確的定義, 就像中文一樣, 有時候也許兩種講法聽起來都對, 可是你就是會在那樣的情況下用那種講法, 而不會用另一個, 這牽涉到所謂的common sense, 也就是語感, 是很難被解釋的, 只有熟悉該語言的人才能體會箇中的奧妙, 硬要用明確的文字來定義很難, 所以請你多閱讀例句, 你就會知道該怎麼用

    Real: adj. 形容詞-用來形容名詞

    Really: adv. 副詞-用來形容名詞以外的詞性(主要是動詞或是形容詞)

    重點就是你要加強的是你的名詞還是動詞.

    Is this real leather or plastic?

    這句的重點是在 "名詞"(leather, plastic)

    It's really cold today.

    really用來形容cold, cold是形容詞...所以

    但是real當副詞時是比較口語化的用法...
