    one day 除了表示數目「一天」之外,還可以有「某一天」、「有一天」的意思。

    a day 只是不定冠詞 a 加 day,沒有強調數字的 「一」天,有時只是在講所謂「日」 day 的性質而已。

    例如:

    (強調數字性的天數:)

    The meeting will last just one day.

    會議只有一天。

    (敘述事情發生在某一天:)

    One day I was walking on a street, and all of a sudden, a car came and hit me.

    有一天我走在街上,突然一部車過來撞到我。

    (指未來的某天:)

    One day you will regret.

    有一天你會後悔。

    (講普通一天的性質:)

    There are 24 hours in a day.

    一天有 24 小時。

    這裡所謂一天有 24 小時,不是在真的在算一天、兩天,只是說 a day 的時數而已。

    總結來說, 一般 a 和 one 的分別是,a 沒有強調數字, one 是強調數目。 但 one day 除了數目性的一天之外,還有敘述性的「某天」、和未來的「有一天」這樣的特殊意思。

    in fact 和 actually 都可以強調「事實上」,在表示「某件事情的真實性」這個意思上,兩字相同,可以互換:

    I was told we were to at 6 o'clock, but in fact, we didn't leave until 8.

    = I was told we were to leave at 6 o'clock, but actually, we didn't leave until 8.

    他們跟我說 6 點要出發,但事實上直到 8 點才動身。

    ( 上面例句第一句,漏了 leave:

    I was told we were to leave at 6 o'clock, but in fact we didn't leave until 8.)

    2012-09-04 14:02:15 補充:

    不過,actually 除了強調事實,還可強調「精確」。這種表示「到底」、「究竟」的含意,不能用 in fact:

    What time are you actually leaving?

    你「到底」是幾點要離開啊?

    2012-09-04 14:05:22 補充:

    actually 也可以用來表示意見或說明,表示「說實在的,如何如何」。這種「說實在的」,不一定在強調某事的事實,只是一種說法或看法:

    Actually, I am against it.

    說實在的,我反對。

    總結來說, if fact 強調的是「事實」,actually 還有「追根究柢」性的、跟想像有些不同的,或是表達意見的等等的廣泛含意。

    上面錯字訂正: if fact --> in fact

    1. What's the difference between one day and a day,用中文這兩字的翻譯都是一天。但是one day,有另外的意思是在將來的一天,也就是中文的「有一天」。

    Ex.

    I shall conquer it one day. 有一天我必會征服它。

    I can finish it within a day. 我可以在一天之內完成它。

    2. What's the difference between in fact and actually,這兩個字中文解釋不太相同,in face 是事實上,而actually 是實際上。

    Ex.

    In fact, I am sure about what I am going to do next.

    I do believe that the Super Nova is actually existed.

    回話時,很多人喜歡用actually來當開頭句子,有很多時候是轉折語氣的使用。

    Ex.

    A: Do you walk to school everyday?

    B: Well, actually, I don’t walk to school everyday. I take the bus on occasion.
