  • * 本集中又出现了不少“动词+介词”及“动词+像介词的副词”类型的短语动词,大致有:work on something, carry on something, take after someone, let…in, come on, take… back, pick… out, wake up, grow up, count on something, get along, get… in, wake up, pick… up等。 * pick up的意思较多,有“拾起,抱起,接人,取东西,拘留,学会一种本领,染上某种习惯,获得某种信息或知识,付餐饮帐”等。多数短语动词都有多义的特点,必要时需勤查字典,以防弄错。 * 本集中so 出现次数较多。在so cuddly, so excited, in so many ways, so alive with…, so proud to be…, so much like…, so cute, so happy, so good, so kind, 等组合中,so都是very的意思。这种用法比较富感情色 彩,带有惊呼或强调的意思,不宜多用。但在… so the old one will be ready…中,so是so that的简略说法。so that作为连词,表示目的。如: She opened the window so(that) the smoke might get out. * finish wrapping all these gifts: finish是需要后面带动名词而不是不定式的动词之一。常见的这一类动词还有admit,avoid,consider,deny,dislike,enjoy,give up,keep,can't help,leave off,mention,mind,miss,practise,put off,risk,can't stand,等。这些动词是绝对不带不定式做宾语的。如: I enjoy swimming in the lake. They kept making lots of noise. Will you give up collecting old newspapers? * 动词 hang意思是“悬挂”,但hang又是“绞(上吊)死”的意思,前者是不规则变化的动词(hang,hung,hung,)而后者是规则变化的动词(hang,hanged,hanged)。 * 新生婴儿返家,皆大欢喜,但爷爷、埃伦和苏珊,以及哈里和米歇尔的欢喜各不相同,刻划细致,是好笔法。
