關於 adj + of 以及 N + of

1.Quick decision is characteristic of him; what do you think of him? 2.The leavesof that tree are red. 第一句的of前面是形容詞,第二句的前面是名詞,我看得懂第二句的用法,但是第一句我看不懂。

    第一句裡的characteric是當[形容詞],但用法比較特殊,是:characteristics+介系詞+(代)名詞

    Quick decision is characteristic of him = 下決心快是他的特點

    類似的句子:

    His accents are characteristic of Southern Americans.

    It is characteristic of her to act that way.

    The white stone houses are characteristic of the island.

    Sue answered with her characteristic frankness.(這裡的用法則同一般形容詞,放在名詞前,不用介系詞)

    Saffron gives the rice in this dish its characteristic yellow colour.

    characteristic也可以當[可數名詞]用:

    A purple rash is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the disease.
