關於加乘法動詞跟一些小英文問題

1.加法乘法的時候

例如

Three and two are/is five.

Five times six are/is thirty.

為什麼我的書上說兩種be都可以使用不是要使用單數is麼?

還是模陵兩可?幫解答下

2.自己寫的文法幫檢查下正確麼

Four from eight makes four.

Four from eight equals four.

Four from eight is equal to four.

Eight miuns four leaves four.

3.wrong這個比較級是

worse還是more為什麼我查到有兩種

哪種用來當做比較級才對請tell me下

4.像是有一些句子裡有to you或是to your

我在聽發音有時候怎麼很像是tjə或是tjər

似乎t後面那個ə的音消失

變成很像是ㄊ一ㄝ跟這個倒是很接近

Do you > djə >類似ㄉ一ㄝ

是真的有這種情況還是我聽錯

先問這樣

以上麻煩會的老師幫解答^____^

Q1.雖然說用ARE複數外國人也是聽的懂只是文法比較不正確,如果像是考試或者英文文法上要求正確最好還是一率用單數型動詞就好麼!!??

Q3.像是right wrong等等這種字雖然沒有比較級只是我看有人解釋說用於轉意或表對比時可以使用比較例句

It is wrong to think of it; it is more wrong to do it.

If I’m blind, you’re more blind.

Jane is more right than you thought.

That place is far more worth visiting.

    為什麼我的書上說兩種be都可以使用不是要使用單數is麼?

    還是模陵兩可?幫解答下

    當成一個算式時,動詞只能用單數.

    如: Macmillan English Dictionary for Advanced Learners (2007)例句只列了單數的寫法:Two and two is four.(p.49).

    Webste's New World Dictionary for Young Readers (1979), 例句:6 and 2 equals 8. (p.26)

    Collins Cobuild English Dictionary for Advanced Learners (2001)例句:What does two and two make? (p.52)

    遠東新世紀英漢辭典:2 from 10 is (leaves) 8. (p.562)

    Two and two makes four. (p.845)

    One hundred pence makes a pound. (p.845)雖然主詞是多數的pence.但用單數動詞.

    但同這一本字典在p.48也見到了:

    Four and two make(s) six.

    Four and two equal(s) 8.

    表示用複數動詞也可.應該是講話的人心裡不把這句話當成一個算式在做.

    2.自己寫的文法幫檢查下正確麼

    Four from eight makes four.

    Four from eight equals four.

    Four from eight is equal to four.

    Eight miuns four leaves four. (minus)

    以下是字典的例句,供你參考:

    If you take 2 from 10, 8 remains. (遠東新世紀p.562)

    2 from 10 is (leaves) 8.

    Twice 3 is equal to 6. (遠東新世紀p.465)

    Two and two makes four. (遠東新世紀p.845)

    你的寫法是正確的.只有minus拼錯了.

    3.wrong這個比較級是

    worse還是more為什麼我查到有兩種

    哪種用來當做比較級才對請tell me下

    wrong, more wrong, most wrong

    wrong, wronger, wrongest

    以上是wrong 當形容詞用的兩種原級,比較級,最高級.遠東新世紀英漢辭典(1993) p.1611

    但Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary

    Macmillan English Dictionary for Advanced Learners

    Collins Cobuild English Dictionary for Advanced Learners

    及Wesbster's Dictionary for Young Readers等均未列出wrong的比較級及最高級

    所以可能這個字不會用到比較級或最高級.

    就邏輯來說,錯應該就是錯,不該有比較的層次關係.

    worse是bad和ill的比較級.(遠東新世紀p.1606)

    4.像是有一些句子裡有to you或是to your

    我在聽發音有時候怎麼很像是tjə或是tjər

    似乎t後面那個ə的音消失

    變成很像是ㄊ一ㄝ跟這個倒是很接近

    Do you > djə >類似ㄉ一ㄝ

    是真的有這種情況還是我聽錯

    你沒有聽錯.to you和to your時,to的o可以省略,全句會因此少了一個音節.這情況和do you的相同.漫畫上常見到Do you的寫法是D'ya ...或What d'ya want?但to you還不會寫成類似的樣子.

    2011-02-01 11:32:20 補充:

    1.遠東新世紀英滿辭典的right,只有一種變化: right, more right, most right.

    2011-02-01 11:32:25 補充:

    2.根據Longman出版的A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language (由Randolph Quirk等人所著 ISBN 0-582-51734-6) p.461

    "Real," "right," "wrong" and the preposition "like" take only periphrastic forms.

    She is more like her grandmother.

    所以該書主張: real, right, wrong, like是少數單音節字,不在字尾做變化.而寫成片語式的,在前面加上more, most.

    3. wrong - more wrong - most wrong

    恐怕須考慮

    1. 數字的話應該用單數動詞 : is, equals, makes......etc.2. 嗯嗯!3. wrong - more wrong - most wrongbad - worse - worst4. 要聽上下文才知道,不過 you 發 ya 的音是蠻普遍的
