為什麼這一句用suited to不能用suitable to

為什麼這一句用suited to不能用suitable to

Mr.Lee decided that he was not suited to life in a small town,and so he retuned to the capital.

正確答案為suited

感謝大師

1.那麼簡單來講

suited 配to;suitable 配for

依本題題目空格後為to,所以前空格應為suited囉?

2.如果是特定指某人/某種人就一定得用suitable for?

The life in a small town is not suitable for him. (O)

The life in a smell town is not suited to him. (X)

3.此題目出於TOEIC考試用書,原題目在life前並無定冠詞the,請問這會影響空格應為suited to 或suitable for的答案嗎?

    你的句子可以寫成Mr. Lee decided that he was not suited to the life in a small town, so he returned to the capital.或Mr. Lee decided to that he was not suitable for the life in a small town, so he returned to the capital.

    因為〔搭配字〕不能隨意更換,suited 配to,suitable配for.應按習慣來用.

    to be suited + to + something

    用在適合某種目的或情況

    She is ideally suited to the job.

    We want schooling that is suited to the needs of the local community.

    If something is well suited to a particular purpose, it is right or appropriate for that purpose.

    If someone is well suited to a particular job, they are right or appropriate for that job.

    to be suitable + for + somebody/something

    用在適合某種人或某件事

    This film is not suitable for young children.

    Someone or something that is suitable for a particular purpose or occasion is right or acceptable for it.

    更正:Mr. Lee decided that he was not suitable for the life in a small town, so he returned to the capital.多打了一個to在前面的主要動詞decided之後,請刪去.

    根據Collins Cobuild和Macmillan這兩本字典,suited + to,suitable + for。

    但<遠東新世紀英漢辭典>裡註明to/for都可用在suited之後,有一個例句是接for的。Than man is particularly suited for teaching.但大多數的例句是接to。如:His speech was suited to the occasion.

    2011-08-02 21:58:36 補充:

    遠東新世紀英漢辭典例句:Dick and his wife seem well suited to each other.(後面接的是人)。

    所以The life in a small town is not suited to him.中suited to應該可以接人。

    2011-08-02 22:04:16 補充:

    我手邊的字典的suitable for後面接事或人均可。

    life這個普通名詞因為受到修飾語in a country的限定,必須加上定冠詞,否則泛指各式的life,這和後面要用suitable for/suited to無關。
