請問一下

When we are sleeping, our brains still stay active in order to sore memories.

此時的 brain 指的是頭腦,因為文中提到 we,所以是複數,有很多顆腦袋,所以用複數。

是指若用來指一個人的腦袋則為單數a brain的意思嗎

再問一下...是以下的意思嗎

brain 有兩個意思

1.作為理解力、智慧、智力(這種看似應該不可數的東西)---可數 也可以 不可數(指不論單人或雙人我都可以用單數或複數)

2.另一個解釋則是腦袋---若是用在一個人則用單數,多人則用複數

1.She has brain(s).他很聰明

He has no brain(s).他不聰明

They have brain(s)

    Sometimes, brains. ( used with a plural verb ) understanding; intellectual power; intelligence

    She has brains. / He has no brain(s).

    此時的 brain 指的是裡解力、智力、智慧等等,所以可用複數。

    例句:

    Marie has an amazing brain (= is very intelligent).

    { Marie 很聰明 }

    The poor child inherited his mother's brains and his father's looks.

    { 那可憐的孩子遺傳他老媽的腦袋 (此指智力) 和他老爸的長相 }

    When we are sleeping, our brains still stay active in order to sore memories.

    此時的 brain 指的是頭腦,因為文中提到 we,所以是複數,有很多顆腦袋,所以用複數。

    是,以下就樓主的例句舉個單數例子:

    When everyone is sleeping, his (or her) brain still stays active in order to sore memories.

    everyone:每個人 (單數);逗點後面加 his (或 her),brain 也為單數。

    是 =),在複數以及理解力解的情況下,我還是會說:They have brains.
