year用法,希望能够给帮助到大家,下面小编就和大家分享,来欣赏一下吧。

a minute、a day、a month和a year,哪个最长?

如果我问你:a minute、a day、a month和a year这四个选项里,哪个时间最短?相信你一定会回答a
minute。它只有一分钟,当然比一天、一个月和一年短。

没错,合情合理。可是,如果我再告诉你,a minute同时又是时间最长的选项,你信吗?

Trust me, I'm not kidding. 因为a minute的引申义是quite a while,a long
time,它没有定数,可以长达many years。

A: But you did good, just like I knew you would!

B: I'm not you, mom.

A: Well, I wasn't always me, either. It took me a minute to get here.

C: OK, we, we need to get her to a hospital.

D: No, I, I'll be fine. So you were just gonna leave me to die? What the
hell were you thinking?

C: I showed up, didn't I?

D: You took your damn time.

C: Well, I needed a minute!

也许你会觉得很困惑:不是经常有人说wait a minute这样的话吗?这里的a minute显然是a short time。那到底怎么判断a
minute是长是短呢?没个统一标准,岂不天下大乱?

放心,你只需要记住一个简单原则:如果说的是现在或将来的情形,a minute就是原始用法,等于a short time;比如:Hold on a
minute! I'll be back in a minute. 如果说的是过去的情形,a minute就是引申用法,等于a long time。比如:It
took them a minute to finish the project. It's been a minute since I last saw
you.

BTW, 有一档NPR的知名节目叫It's Been A Minute,这个名字的来由也是:Well, it's been a long time
since we talked to each other. Let's have a proper chat!

that day与on the day用法的区别

用法上稍有区别,2113that day 既可作主语、宾语5261、也可做时间状语; 而 on the day
只能4102做状语,做状语时两1653个可以互换。

that day 中, that是形容词,day 名词,所以它是一个名词词组 -- 那天

on the day 中, on 介词,the day 特定的一天,因有定冠词the, 翻译是一样的

举例说明:

That day will be the happiest day in my life.

那一天将是我一生中最幸福的一天。

that day 做主语 (不能用 on the day 代替)

I will remember that day forever. 我会永远记住那一天的。

这里的that day 是宾语 (不能用 on the day 代替)

I remembered what happened that day. 我记起那天发生的事了。

that day 是状语 (可以用 on the day 代替)

回答楼主的补充提问:

It was a cold winter day in 1900. ( )he could have no breakfast or
lunch.

这里以为是做状语用,that day 和 on the day 都可以用。但如果选择一个,我会选that day。 应为on the day
放在句尾的情况为多,而且与that day比较,有强调“在”(那天)的含义。而that day就让整个句子流畅很多,只是说那一天。。。
