    May I speak to Patty, please?(please一定以要加在最後面嗎?)

    應可以加於前,寫為Please, May I speak to……………? 拜託,我可以跟………?. 不可寫為Please may I speak to …………….? 但May I speak to …………, please? 是符合習慣的口語順序。

    Brad isn't wearing yellow thing.(為啥不能這樣造?)

    be wearing 正穿著,否定應是 be not(isn’t, aren’t) wearingBrad isn’t wearing yellow clothes(採複數形). Brad isn’t wearing a yellow hat. 不過有一點必須提到,當一個人正穿著某衣物,我們說 The person is wearing yellow clothes, 但此人未穿此衣物,我們並不會說,此人”不正在穿著”,也許該說 That person doesn’t wear yellow clothes. 此人沒有穿黃色衣服(clothes 單複數同形,此採複數,故不加冠詞a), 比較符合語言邏輯。

    wet paint是什麼?

    油漆未乾。 為你做甚麼?(what anything else can I do for you?需要what 嗎?爲什麼

    是for you 還是to you 怎麼分?需要anything 嗎?爲什麼?

    what (anything) else can I do for you? 是需要有what 字,才構成正確的問句。如是Anything else can I do for you? 在口語上,是有如此的說法,但在書寫上或正式的文句上,如前面不加What, 應寫為 Is there anything else For you 為你, to you 對你, 給你。I will do that for you , my dear friend. 我將為你這件事,親愛的朋友。If you do that to me, I will hate you forever. 如果你對我做那件事,我將恨你一輩子。How many minutes are there in an hour ? ( are there in 可以用is 代替嗎?爲什麼?)How many minutes is an hour ? 多少分鐘是一小時? 是中式說法上句的說法不但不符合英語的表達方式,即使在中文,我們也常說一小時有幾分鐘。不對處就是不符合英文正規的說法。而是原句的are there 即是there are 有 的問句型式。 is 僅有”是”的意義。How many minutes are there in an hour ? 在一小時裡有多少分鐘?

    I don't remember 和I can't remember 哪一個是不記得的意思?爲什麼?

    I don't remember 我不記得I can't remember 我無法記憶起兩者其實意思相同,只是表達的方式不同,就如同中文一樣,有各種不同說法來表達同一件事。

    and even 是什麼意思? 此句應列示出例句,才得了解問題在那裡。基本上 and 及 even是兩個獨立的字,在無例句的情況下,兩字放在一起,並未形成片語,也未形成特別的意義。因此應以主要的字 even 來解釋(and僅是一個連接詞)。依問題,此even應指 “甚至”I can’t do it, he can’t do it and even you can’t do it either. 我不能做它,他不能做它甚至你也不能。

    1.May I speak to Patty,please?(please一定以要加在最後面嗎?)

    →不一定 也可以用May I please speak to Patty?

    2.Brad isn't wearing yellow thing.(為啥不能這樣造?)

    →thing是可數名詞,所以前面要加冠詞或在後面加複數s

    故原句應改成Brad isn't wearing "a" yellow thing.或Brad isn't wearing yellow thing"s".

    3.wet paint是什麼?

    →濕油漆

    4.我還可以為你做甚麼?(what anything else can I do for you?需要what 嗎?爲什麼

    →需要what(疑問詞)引導疑問句

    5.是for you 還是to you 怎麼分?

    →我自己是用中文來分介係詞的,for是"為了",to是"給"

    因為中文是"我可以'為'你做什麼"所以用for

    6.需要anything 嗎?爲什麼?

    →應該是不需要anything,"What else can I do for you"就可以了

    7.How many minutes are there in an hour?(are there in可以用is代替嗎?爲什麼?)

    →不行,這句話的中文是"一個小時裡面有幾分鐘?"

    若用is代替are there in(How many minutes is an hour?)

    會變成"一個小時是幾分鐘?"雖然中文可這樣使用,但英文不行

    8.I don't remember 和I can't remember 哪一個是不記得的意思?爲什麼?

    →I don't remember是"我不記得了(我忘記了)"

    I can't remember是"我記不得(太難記起來了)"

    9.and even 是什麼意思?

    →乃至;甚至

    ※補充第7題 minute"s" 是複數,因此不能用單數be動詞"is"替用

    Please 不一定要加在最後面

    Please, may I speak to Patty?

    May I please speak to Patty?

    May I speak to Patty, please?

    wet paint 濕的油漆-> 未乾的油漆

    Ex: 座椅上:Wet Paint! Don't Sit! (油漆未乾!別座!)

    Are 複數;Is 單數

    一小時有60分鐘 -> 複數 -> are

    I don't remember 我不記得了

    I can't remember 我記不起來
