關於2句英文問題。?

1.Her son is well past forty.

她兒子已經40好幾歲了。

請問知識大大們,如果此句的well換至句尾---Her son is past forty well.

會造成語意上差異嗎?

2.We couldn't very well refuse her.

我們沒有什麼理由拒絕她的請求。

請問知識大大們,如果此句的very well換至句尾---We couldn't refuse her very well.會造成語意上差異嗎?

不好意思,問題比較多,還請知識大大們不吝提點喲。謝謝。: )

To Prisoner醫生:在臺灣,小妹不是只有年紀很小的小孩才會自稱小妹喲。在生活中或是工作的場合,如果遇到比自己年長的或是前輩時,都會謙稱自己是小妹(小弟)。但是,是屬於比較開玩笑、不正式及親切的謙稱。: )

    海倫王的問題是關於 "副詞的位置".

    (A)副詞的定義:

    副詞是用來形容動詞,形容詞,或是其他非名詞的詞類.副詞也可以用來形容一整個句子.

    (B)副詞的位置:

    副詞用在形容動詞,或是整句話的時候通常放在後面.

    或是副詞落落長的時候,它也會被分開放(前面或是後面).

    其他的情況就會放在前面.

    但是有一個一定的原則就是:

    在不破壞其他句子的結構下,要靠近被形容的字詞.

    (C) 你的問題:

    1. He is well past 40. (O - well要靠近past)

    2. We couldn't very well refuse her. (O - very well要靠近refuse)

    (D) 為神你是小妹?還在讀小學校嗎?
