attempt的用法

我要問的是attempt這字的用法

We are making an attempt to achieve our goal.

=We are in our attempt to achieve our goal.

=We are attepting to achieve our goal.

=We are attepting ourselves to achieve our goal.

最後ㄧ句有這樣的用法嗎?

2 make an attempt at

make an attempt on

又是?

    We are making an attempt to achieve our goal. -- Correct

    =We are in our attempt to achieve our goal. -- Correct

    =We are attempting to achieve our goal. -- Correct

    =We are attempting ourselves to achieve our goal. -- ???

    沒見過 to attempt oneself to do something 的用法,應該是錯誤的吧。

    2. an attempt at (V-ing) N 是固定搭配的介係詞(動詞則不一定用 make),後面所接的受詞為所要做到的事或目的:

    Her attempt at humor (at being humorous) failed.

    能夠用 on 做搭配介係詞的,我最常看到的是後面接 someone 或 someone's life,多表示意圖謀刺某(重要的)人(而很少看到單純表示試圖做到某事的用法):

    They planned an attempt on the life of the president.
