英文句型-值得做...(worth、worthy)

※煩請指導:應該如何將(C)改成正確的句子?

請選出一個錯誤的答案:【C】

(A) This movie is worth seeing.

(B) It is worth your while to read the book.

(C) His bravery is worthwhile being praised.

(D) The tropical island is worthy of a visit.

以下是參閱句型課本:

(A) N1 + be worth + V-ing

(B) It is worth one's while + to V / V-ing + N2

(D) N1 + be worthy of + N2

(如有錯誤,煩請指教。)

(C) His bravery is worth praising.

請問是否要改成這樣呢?

    (C) His bravery is worthwhile being praised.(X)

    正確的句子,可以改成:

    1. His bravery is worth praising.(您所寫的)

    2. His bravery is worthy of being praised.

    3. His bravery is worthy to be praised.

    (c) N1+ be worth + Ving

    = N1+ be worthy of + being + Vp.p.

    = N1+ be worthy + to be + Vp.p.

    解說:

    be worth後頭接主動的Ving,在形式上是主動的,其意義仍然是被動的。若要用 be worthy of,就要接被動的being + Vp.p,或是be worthy後頭接不定詞to+Vp.p 的被動式。三者的意義相同。

    比如例句 (A) This movie is worth seeing. = The movie is worthy of being seen.= The movie is worthy to be seen.

    自選例句:

    The second-hand house is worthy of being bought. = The second-hand house is worth buying.= The second-hand house is worthy to be bought.

    "worth" is not preposition, but has the same function of it.

    the worth in C is "adj."

    His bravery is worth praising.(praising成為介繫詞worth的受詞)-----

    可改寫C成為

    His bravery is worth praising. (讓動名詞praising成為形容詞worth的受詞)

    His bravery is praiseworthy.

    His bravery is worthy of praising.
