improvement這個字的問題

1. I can't see any improvement in your writing.

3. The composition is a great improvement on the one you wrote last week.

Q1:請分別說明以上三句中improvement的中文意思並註明是屬於可數還不可數名詞?

我記得improvement有分可數及不可數耶!第二題有些籠統,還有其它大大能解說看看嗎?

AA大大您說的:

an improvement on something = 表示進步而超越了something (這時的something是給被進步的東西比較而超越了,但此時 improvement是指已進步的東西 )

=>請問此句的improvement(已進步的東西)跟something(原來的東西)是要為同種東西來做比較嗎?

    1.If there is an improvement in something, it becomes better. If you make improvements to something, you make it better.

    此時的an improvement in something = 表示改進了something (這時的something是進步的東西)

    2.If you say that something is an improvement on a previous thing or situation, you mean that it is better than that thing.

    an improvement on something = 表示進步而超越了something (這時的something是給被進步的東西比較而超越了,但此時 improvement是指已進步的東西 )

    當改進,改善時,可當"可數"或"不可數" 如你寫的第一句,此時是把它當不可數。當然你要當可數也型如:

    There's been a big improvement in the children's behavior.這小孩的行為有很大的改善。

    當改善的人,事,物等時,是可數名詞 如你寫的二三句,都是可數名詞。

    你給的例句就是一個很好的說明。

    This composition is a great improvement on the one you wrote last week.(這文章比你上星期寫的那篇進步了很多)。

    所以是這時improvement是指你這篇進步的文章。
