(英文) tie 以及 where、place 之問題

原文:『 Two teams tied for first place. 』

問題:這句意思是 兩隊並列第一名平手,可是為何要用 FOR 呢?感覺用 IN 比較適合

原文:『 The White House is where the president of the united states lives and works. 』

問題: where 可不可以換成 a place? " The White House is a place the president of the united states lives and works. " a place 後面要加個 that 嗎?

    Tied for 是 phrasal word, 不能分開的, 解釋為並列的意思

    Tied in 是綁在一起的意思

    The White House is where the president of the united states lives and works. Where 是不可改成 a place that....

    不過可以改為 : The Whit House is a place where the president..........works.

    A place 是地方, 用 relative clause時, 要用 where, 而不用 that.

    1.原文:『 Two teams tied for first place. 』

    問題:這句意思是 兩隊並列第一名平手,可是為何要用 FOR 呢?感覺用 IN 比較適合

    英文介係詞是不容易分析的,因為語言有時很難用意義來分析,只能用語氣順不順,或口語習慣來講。例如,為何是“眉來眼去”? 而不是“眉去眼來”? 兩隊並列第一向來是用 “tied for first place”‧The Eagles and Giants are tied for first place in the NFC East.Oakland Raiders move into tie for first place in AFC West. 多看幾個新聞報導,熟了就覺得了解;不熟就覺得不了解。另外並列第一也可以用into first-place tie如Lincecum leads Giants into first-place tie 2 原文:『 The White House is where the president of the united states lives and works. 』

    問題: where 可不可以換成 a place? " The White House is a place the president of the united states lives and works. " a place 後面要加個 that 嗎?

    可以改為:The White House is the place that the president of the United States lives and works.但不好,因 “the place” 和 “the president” 兩個the 太靠近了。
