英文問題Because once John committed himself to putting his life back together?

已更新項目:

Because once John committed himself to putting his life back together

翻譯是:當約翰決心要重新開始他的生活之後

從putting his life back together開始不懂英文順序為何這麼寫?

請幫我解釋文法

    語言裡面,很多意思都是習慣累積下來的.就像你問的這個:putting his life back together

    putting XX back together = 就是把XX重新整過(再重新出發)的意思.

    committed 某人 to 某事 = 為某人下定決心做某事.這裡的<某事>就是 上面的這一段話(putting XX back together)

    例子:

    She committed herself to the promotion of women's rights.她立志為女權奮鬥

    She failed to put her life back together several times. 她浪子回頭失敗了好幾次.
