英文语法拉杂谈--介词

www.iselong.com 作者:kohtp

谈谈介词(Preposition)(一)

介词在英语用词里也属于难缠的一个项目。因为它涉及方面很广,而且变化多端,往
往令人捉摸不定,记起来很麻烦。因此就有有心人弄了一个《介词口诀》来帮助学习者
;也有人写了《Preposition Song》令学习者一面唱歌一面轻松地记忆介词的用法。

介词英文叫作Preposition (简称prep),它由pre和position组成,pre是前面的意
思,而position是位置的意思。因此以前中文译作“前置词”,就是一种放在名词(或
相当于名词的词语)前面的虚词。

一、常用的介词

about,above,across,after,against,around,at,
before,behind,below,beneath,beside,besides,between,beyond,by,
down,during,
except,
for,from,
in,inside,into,
like,
near,
of,off,on,out,outside,over,
since,
through,throughout,till,to,toward,
under,until,up,upon,
with,without,
according to,
because of,
by way of,
in addition to,
in front of,
in place of,
in regard to,
in spite of,
instead of,
on account of,
out of.

哇,这么一大堆!别怕别怕,大部份的介词都不难理解,比较令人头痛的只是下列几个


at, by, to, in, for, of, on, from, with

其中又以 at, by, in, on 为四大“要犯"!学习介词就是要抓住这几"要犯",看招
吧,嘿嘿!!

这回就谈到这里吧,噢,对了,下回就让我们先来一道《Preposition Song》洋餐吧。

谈谈介词(Preposition)(二)

二、Preposition Song (括号内是一部份介词用法提示,是我加的)
(本曲找不到原谱,但你可以自己配上适当的。如下面简单曲子就是例子:

on。另外再加上许多虫虫蚁蚁,有的还得劳驾找一找喔,呵呵。
大家多唱几遍,下回我们再见时,你就更加胸有成“介”了,哈哈。

谈谈介词(Preposition)(三)

这里提供一个学习介词at, in, on 的幻灯片文件(PowerPoint),可供初学者使用。其
内容包括有关介词用法课文、通过歌曲学介词、通过一个请柬学习介词、测验题。其中
所有中文都是我附上的。

为了配合这个幻灯片所介绍的三个介词:at, in, on,下面我们较深入地介绍它们(附
带谈by) 的用法。

二、介词at, in, on, by 表示地方、地点、位置:

2.1 at 把地方、地点、位置当作一个“点”:

“点”)

12.  My aunt lives at 55 Boretz Road in Durham.
    我的姑妈住在Durham,Boretz 路门牌55号。(地址要用at,不能用in)

14.  at reception 在招待会上
15.  I'm at work. 我在工作。
16.  at class/ home/ the library/ the office/ school 在班上/家里/图书馆/公
司/学校

2.2 in 把地方、地点、位置当作一个范围或一个封闭的空间:

2. I live in England, at London. 我住在英国伦敦。(England大过London喔)
3. I live in a big city, my sister lives at a small town. 我住在大城市,我
姐姐住在一个小市镇。(如果把city看做一个圆圈,small town就成一个点。因此就in
a city, at a small town. 呵呵)
4. We have a meeting in Beijing. 我们有北京有一个会议。
5. Mars is in the Solar System. 火星在太阳系里。
6. in a car 乘汽车 (不是 on a car 也不是 by a car 喔)
7. in a taxi 乘的士 (不是 on a taxi 或 by a taxi )
8. in a helicopter 乘直升机
9. in a boat 乘小船
10. in a lift (elevator) 乘电梯 (电梯像个笼子,当然要用 in 啦)
11. in the newspaper 在报上
12. in the sky 在空中
13. in the bed 在床上 (也可用 on the bed)
14. in the bedroom/ class/ library/ school 在寝室/课室/图书馆/学校

2.3  on 把地方、地点、位置当作一个平面:

1. The author's name is on the cover of the book. 在书的封面上有作者的名
字。
2. There are no prices on this menu. 在这菜单上没有价钱。
3. You are standing on my foot. 你踏到我的脚了。

子。
5. I live on the 7th floor at 21 Oxford Street in London. 我住在伦敦牛津街
21号八楼。(7th floor 就是八楼;注意句中的 on, at, in 的用法)

2.4  by 用在表示位置(有在旁、贴近、靠近之意):

1. by the fire 在炉边
2. by the seaside 在海边
3. a path by the river 沿河道路
4. by the nearest road  走近路

我想要记忆介词的用法,就得用一点想象力加以联想。如:at home, at the door, at
the corner等等,可想象“at家门口的角落里”。再比如: in Beijing, in a car, in
a taxi, in a boat, in a helicopter, in the sky ... 可想象为“In 北京,乘汽
车,乘的士,再乘小船,乘上直升机在空中飞”。

下回我们将要谈的是 at, in, on 用来表示时间的方面。再会!

谈谈介词(Preposition)(四)

上)
