keep 的疑問

Mary keeps her rock star identity a secret from all but her family and closest friends

keep from是避免的意思,可是有點說不出來的奇怪

1.請問keep後可接形容詞?那可改成

Mary keeps her rock star identity secret(沒有a) from all but her family and closest friends 是否可以?

keep from是片語,類似下面句子

In order to keep the children from playing the fire, we put the matches away.

可是我說的奇怪是,keep後又可接形容詞,然後又加個from變成片語,感覺似一個字(keep)多用,為什不分開寫成

Mary keeps her rock star identity secret(沒有a) and don't tell anyone

but her family and closest friends. 這樣就不會怪怪的

2.若Mary keeps her rock star identity a(有a) secret from all but her family and closest friends

為什a前面不加as呢?變成

Mary keeps her rock star identity as a secret from all but her family

and closest friends

這樣不行嗎?

3.有時常看到句子內有否定,然後緊接but的用法

請問這該如何翻譯呢?有其他例子嗎?

我的例子 I don't tell anyone but you這樣對嗎?

那有其他範例嗎?

To 屋頂上的月光:

1.為什第一句用名詞會比較適合呢? keep....as a secret不要用keep....... secret

既然 her rock star identity 為名詞,為什不用形容詞來修飾?

2.我之前有看過幾個句子,例如

She won the title as Miss America.

She didn't think much of him as a painter

有的用as+名詞來修飾前面的名詞

所以想說keep +名詞 +as a secret來修飾 her rock star identity

    1. 基本上,這一句中的keep和from應該是要分開看的,這裡keep當作保持的意思,基本句型:keep A B (A為受詞、B為補語),補語可以為名詞、形容詞、分詞。這裡的from有點表示<免於~>的意思。這句指的應該是讓她的身份成為一個秘密,所以名詞應該會比較適合;加上形容詞表示的是一種狀態,例如:Keep the window open.(讓窗戶開著)。

    2. 加上as的話,就變的不符合文法了,所以加上as是多餘的。

    3. but的用法你的例子就寫的很清楚了,可以使用在否定句中或句中含有no, nothing, all, every的句子。像下列的句子:After hearing the bad news, Mary did nothing but cry all day long.你可以參考看看

    因為這裡是當作保持、一直的意思,所以後面會加上名詞、形容詞和分詞來表示一種狀態。基本上,也是有加上介係詞片語當作補語的用法,舉例來說:The patient is being kept under observation.(病人一直被照顧著),不過是這種用法keep A under B(一直看固或控制著~),還有其他的用法,例如最常見的keep A from B(阻止A做B),不過那是別的意思了,你可以參考看看

    1. keep~from 是指讓某人遠離某物或保持距離

    keep~from通常加的是名詞或代名詞耶!

    而且secret在此是當名詞~而非形容詞哦!

    Mary keeps her rock star identity a secret from all but her family and closest friends.

    這句解譯是: 除了瑪莉的家人和好友知道外~他將本身是搖滾樂手的秘密隱藏起來~

    2.as? 是當作什麼的意思耶~這樣翻起來很不順!

    不然就改成

    Mary keeps a secret which is a rock star identity her from all but her family and closest friends.

    3.not~but意思:不是A而是B~

    你那句是對的~

    我沒有告訴任何人~除了你!

    範例:I hate sports but basketball.

    對了~not but中間放的東西要一致哦!

    (也就是詞性~片語都要同一類!)
