any length of time及as to的片語替代?

我最近迷上了Sherlock Holmes小說英文版,想了解故事中句子及背誦佳句。

有一句台詞是這樣的:

Dr Watson: As usual, after leaving Holmes for any length of time. I returned filled with apprehension as to his mood.

我想知道any length of time及as to有那些片語可以替代呢?謝謝。

愈完整愈好喔,謝謝。

還有一點就是as to在奇摩字典上譯為”關於”但我用關於這個中文查英文卻不見as to這個用法,所以我有點好奇若以本例句而言是不是能完全替代呢?如:about; on; with regard to; concerning; regarding; with reference to

    1. any length of time

    中譯:“不管多久...”

    可以替代的片語,如:

    any periord of time

    no matter how long....

    it doesn't matter how long....

    however long....

    ...after leaving Holmes for any length of time, I...

    可改寫為:

    ... after leaving Holmes for any periord of time...

    ...no matter how long I had left Holmes for, I returned....

    ...it didn't matter for how long I had left Holmes, I returned...

    ....after leaving Holmes for any length of time, however long it might be, I returned....

    2. as to

    中譯: 關於, 至於....

    在這裡的確可用

    about; with regard to; concerning; regarding.... 代替。

    我將原文試改如下,供你參考:

    No matter for how long I had left Holmes, I usually returned worrying about what kind of mood he was in.
