英文句子的先後順序!!

如果要翻譯 "我每天在家使用電腦大約30分鐘"

那是 I use the computer for about 30 min at house every day.

還是 I use the computer at house for about 30 min every day.

有點搞不大懂別人回答的 「主詞+動詞+受詞+地點+時間」

因為這個句子有兩個時間 一個是每天 一個是花費的30分

那我該怎麼擺才對呢??

都放後面?

還是花的30分要放地點前面?

    First, let me modify your sentence a little:

    I use computer for about 30 mins at home everyday.

    "30 minutes" and "every day" are all time related adverbs. You CAN place anywhere you want, for example:

    For 30 minutes everyday, I use computer at home.

    Everyday, I use computer for 30 minutes at home.

    I use computer at home everyday for 30 minutes.

    Don't be restricted by so-called "formula". Language is very flexible, why you want to be constrained within some grammar rules?

    Recently, a person asked me about "everyday":

    Everyday, I pray to God for giving you a hand while you are working.

    Now, if I write it as:

    I pray to God for giving you a hand while you are working everyday.

    2012-03-21 07:43:39 補充:

    can you see the difference?

    the first sentence, it is "I pray everyday..."

    the second sentence, it is "you work everyday".

    Therefore, where to place a time adverb will depend what or who you want to use it to describe.

    It really has nothing to do with placing it "at the front of", "at the end of" or "in the middle of" the sentence.

    重點不是use,而是花30分鐘。

    如果是我會翻成

    I use computer at home about 30 minutes a day.

    時間跟地點的擺法通常都是"由小到大"

    如果有時間、地點副詞,排列方式是"地點副詞+時間複詞"

    時間大都放在句首或句尾

    我覺得應該是先放for about 30 min

    再放every day

    最後放 at house

    因為 every day 修飾 for about 30 min

    變成"每天"大概三十分鐘補充說明I use the computer

    然後再放at house 說明整個句子發生的地點

    I use the computer for about 30 min every day at house
