2題文法 + 1個差別

1. Mary finally reached her goal of becoming a famous writer, and this has been a dream come true for her.

請問後半句有沒有犯了出現2個動詞--has "been" 與 "come" true的錯誤呢?

2. Some of these people get _______ 50 percent of their total daily calories as saturated fat, primarily from coconut oil.

請問空格該填as many as 還是 as much as?

3. video games 與 video gaming, 這2個片語在概念上有什麼差別?

DaSaGwa大師,

謝謝您的迅速回答! 再請教一下:

1. 第2題我也覺得應該用as many as, 但是解答本給的答案是as much as, 所以它給錯了嗎?

2. video gaming 有沒有可能是指"專門設計給遊戲玩家玩的電玩產業"呢?

    1.

    The spring has come. (A)

    The spring is come. (B)

    第一句的come是完成式裡的過去分詞, 是"動詞組"的一部分.

    第二句的come是形容詞.

    類似的例子:

    Have you finished you meal?

    Are you finished with your meal?[come true]=[become real]

    ..., and this has been a dream come true for her. =

    ..., and this has been a dream [that/which] [has/is] come true for her. 2.

    用"as many as * percent of the people" 與 "as much as * percent of the people" 這兩組到Google搜尋, 可以發現結果雖然有差異, 但是其個別的數量卻都是有效的. 也就是兩種用法都對.

    道理其實很簡單: 不同的斷句有不同的結果.

    大家都說到的:

    percent + 複數 => 複數動詞

    percent + 單數 => 單數動詞

    這個沒有疑問, 但是現在主角是[as many as]及[as much as], 你把她許配給誰, 她就有不同的樣貌:

    組合一:

    Some of these people get as many as [50 percent of their total daily calories] ...

    組合二:

    Some of these people get [as much as 50 percent] of their total daily calories] ...

    看出其差異了嗎?

    (percent本身是不可數的)2.

    master Kevin!

    Your saying about "as many as" and "as much as" is really nice! It really educated me very well. I withdraw my answer to support yours.

    Gaming can also mean the animals that are used in hunting. However, it doesn't fit the term "video gaming".

    2012-12-18 02:27:23 補充:

    I did hear that some private hunting ground provides rich people to hunt from that home or from the facility. If such a saying is true, then, yes, "video gaming" might work.

    hunt from that ...==> hunt from their ...

    1. Mary finally reached her goal of becoming a famous writer, and this has been a dream (that has )come true for her分詞片語修飾dream.

    2.Some of these people get _______ 50 percent of their total daily calories as saturated fat, primarily from coconut oil. 熱量(卡路里)為不可數,答案是as much as

    3.video games電玩遊戲 而 video gaming玩電玩,用動名詞表示一種運動或娛樂,類似如go shopping,mountain climbing,bike racing-----

    4.play + 運動:play basketball,play + the + 運動:play the violin------

    2012-12-17 15:34:35 補充:

    請修正為 play + the + 樂器-----

    2012-12-18 16:39:19 補充:

    2.答案是as much as,理由:用as many as決定在其後名詞calories為複數可數,但受限as saturated fat而將calories變更為不可數,percent 不影響用much 或 many 。

    2012-12-18 16:45:56 補充:

    也許是:Some of these people get as much 50 percent of their total daily calories as saturated fat, primarily from coconut oil.其中as向後移,這樣更合邏輯

    引用知識家提問:The film was held in Italy for 3 weeks last month.一般寫法:The film has been held in Italy for 3 weeks.但受限 last month就需用過去式.

    ... this has been a dream come true

    這裡的come是過去分詞,當名詞dream的修飾語。不及物動詞的過去分詞不是表示[被動],而是表示[主動],但己經完成。

    falling leaves是正在降落的樹葉

    fallen leaves是已掉在地上的樹葉

    請參見趙振才著<英語常見問題大詞典>p.207 come

    Some of these people get _______ 50 percent of their total daily calories as saturated fat, primarily from coconut oil.

    這裡是談全日的熱量來源有一半是來自飽和脂肪,所以是指[量](比率),而不是[數](有幾卡),所以只能用as much as。解答是正確的。

    2012-12-17 19:22:48 補充:

    gaming是[博奕],gaming industry=博奕產業

    video gaming可能是指在視訊上博奕

    2012-12-18 12:50:04 補充:

    2. Some of these people get _______ 50 percent of their total daily calories as saturated fat, primarily from coconut oil.

    their total daily calories裡的calories雖是複數形,但受到their total daily的限定後,整個名詞片語(他們每日所得到的總熱量),在邏輯上其實己成了一個不可數的個體,我們是用比率來比較某個來源占這個總量的多少,而不是calories的數目。所以只適合使用as much as
