    最佳解答

    She opened her lips as if she were going to speak

    這句是文法書上的用法

    也是最正確的用法

    因為在假設語氣的文法中規定

    與事實相反時

    be 動詞不論主詞人稱與單複數

    一律使用 "were"而不用'was'

    She opened her lips as if she was going to speak

    這句是日常口語用法

    不合文法

    但多數美國人非正式場合都會這樣用

    大家也都接受了

    不過還是有小小建議

    為免爭議

    如果在台灣考試

    還是乖乖用 were

    免得被水準不夠的老師或閱卷者扣分

    BE(英式英文)用were

    AE(美式英文)三單可用was或were.
