英语口语每天学:量词系列:a couple

A couple到底是几个?

Strictly speaking, "a couple" means two.

e.g. a couple of pens: 两支笔

a couple of cups: 两个杯子

..常口语里,它也能指几个、多个

Let's get a couple of apples: 我们买几个苹果

具体的数量,还是要通过语境分析。

a few & a few of 一些?

注意语法:

A few___ 不是 a few of ___

量词通常都用“of”链接后面的名词,但“a few”是个例外(few同理)

"a few pens", not "a few of pens": 是 few pens,而不是a few of pens

例外:当 a few后面跟的不是具体事物时,要加of

比如:

a few of these

a few of those

a few of us

【英语词汇】 a couple of, a pair of 两个......, 一对......

a couple of 两(或几)个...

辨析: 意思广泛而模糊,既可指两个,也可指多个.指同类中的两个时, 不强调成对,也不构成一个整体,谓语动词一般用复数.

我在卧室室找到了两只靴子,但它们不是一对.

a pair of 一对...,一双....

辨析: 指由同一种材料制成的两个配套的物体, 属于一个不可分割的整体,缺少其中之一则无法使用,
谓语动词用单数还是复数取决于这两者是一个整体还是两个事物或人的组合.

例: a pair of scissors/shoes/trousers 一把剪刀/一双鞋子/一条裤子

【英语词汇】couple 和 pair的区别

1) pair指使用时彼此不能分开的两件东西构成的物品,这两件东西可以连在一起,也可以不连在一起,但缺一不可。

He is wearing a pair of glasses.他戴着一副眼镜。

注:a/every/this/that pair of something作主语,谓语动词用单数。

A pair of sunglasses is lying on the table.桌子上有一副太阳镜。

her.她觉得房子里的每一双眼睛都在看她。

pair也可以指人,相当于couple指的是“同样立场、一起做同样事情或某种关联的两个人,作主语时谓语用复数。

注:a pair of somebody作主语,谓语动词用复数。

The pair were matched for age.这一对是按年龄配成的。

The pair are looking for sponsorship from local
businesses.两人正在寻找当地企业的赞助。

2) couple表示“两个相同的人或物(two things of the same
kind)”,指人或物。指夫妻只能用couple,不能用pair。couple表示“夫妇,夫妻”且用作主语时,谓语动词可用单数(视为整体,尤其是当有each,
every, only one等修饰时);也可以是复数(考虑其个体)。

apartment.一对老夫妇搬进了我们的公寓。(整体)

couple有时指“几个,两三个”,当couple作主语,此时表示复数意义,用作主语时,谓语动词要用复数。a couple
of作主语谓语用复数。
