The forecast was for clear句型分析
請問：The forecast was for clear skies this morning.這句中was 後面為什麼要加for ？有什麼特別意義嗎？另外sky一定要用複數型態嗎？

The forecast was for clear skies this morning乃為The forecast was called for clear skies this morning之省略=The forecast was predicted clear skies this morningcall for在此意思=predict(American English: to say that a particular kind of weather is likely to happen))預測

When we say "the forecast is/was for clear skies/rain/etc.," it means: "the forecast is predicting ..." [whatever type of weather it happens to be].

當講到天氣(weather)時sky都須用複數型如;clear skies,cloudy skies,但講到天空,則用單數如:The sky is clear.這是習慣,沒有理由...參考資料： Geoffrey, LONGMAN DICTIONARY OF CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH 2003, http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=24...

be動詞的前後如果都是名詞時，表示這兩個名詞是相同的東西。但forecast =/= clear skies，要加上介系詞，讓後面的名詞成為介系詞片語，才能在語意上符合邏輯。for與against常用來表示讚同及反對的主張：I am against all forms of censorship.(反對）；Everyone says they are for equal opportuniteis.；The weather forecast is for a dry sunny day tomorrow.
The forcast was for clear skies this morning. = 氣象報告原來的主張是今天天晴的（但後來突然更改了）。
Clear/cloudy skies are used to talking about the weather.
Tomorrow we expected clear skies in the morning, with rain in the afternoon.
to call for something = to make something necessary or suitable
The present crisis calls for mature judgment on the part of our leaders.
Skill and initiative are called for in this job.

was for 意思是 指明 針對 為了
The forecast 非 clear skies 用 was for 才明白清楚
skies 意思是 天氣 天候
