什麼是It was too good to last, a?

原文如下:

It was too good to last, and it didn’t. In the early 1990s huge number of state-owned enterprises were shut down and jobs in those that survived were savagely cut.

謝謝

    too adj to V =

    太 adj 而不能 V

    ex

    I get up too late to go to school on time.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    回來看您的問題,It 表某種條件,狀態,情勢。我相信在這句的前面應該會有提到。

    it was too good to last.

    (某種情況)太好而不太可能長存(或持續)。

    這種情況只能說是棒到實在不太可能一直持續下去,事實上,的確這種情況沒有長存。在九零年代早期有一大票的國營企業倒閉,而在此類企業中的工作機會也大幅度削減。

    too good to last 其實還好理解。我之前查的類似句型是

    too good to be true.

    我那時一直都想不出是什麼意思。不過學會了,也顯得沒什麼值錢的了。

    diocequeen 已經翻得差不多。我來補充最後半句(翻譯不盡完備):

    and jobs in those that survived were savagely cut.

    而悻存的企業公司呢,它們也瘋狂地裁員。

還有問題?馬上發問,尋求解答。
