Topic 80: Hard? Hardly? Late? Lately?

這幾句的意思是甚麼?

1. I study hard.
2. I hardly study.
3. Dad got to work a bit late yesterday.
4. I have not seen my uncle lately.

用作副詞時:
‘hard’ 指「努力」
‘hardly’ 指 「難以」(rarely)
‘late’ 指 「遲到」
‘lately’ 指 「最近」(recently)
所以,第一及第二句可以說意思差不多是相反的。

Topic 79: Adverbs of manner 情狀副詞

下列哪一句正確?

1. John runs fastly.
2. Nancy dances good.
3. Please keep quietly.
4. I feel sad.
5. Your new car looks nicely!

*以上只有第四題是正確的 :
1. 沒有 fastly,’fast’ 的副詞也是’fast’
2. 形容 ‘dances’,所以要把 ‘good’ 轉成 ‘well’
3. ‘Keep’ 不帶動作,後面用形容詞 ‘quiet’
4. ‘Feel’ 不帶動作,所以用形容詞 ’sad’ 是正確的
5. ‘Look’ 不帶動作,後面用形容詞 ‘nice’

註:有關 late/lately 和 hard/hardly ,留待下一講
