  afford

  使用频率:★★★

  造句功能:★★★

  西方思维:★★★★★

  意思是买的起,付得起、花得起时间、金钱、精力等。

  但是Afford只能表示能力,不表示意愿。例如我们可以说I'm willing to pay, but I really can't afford it,而不能说I'm willing to afford it。

  用好这个词,我们的水平就会提高一个档次,让你的同学打心底里佩服。

  1、这顶帽子贵得也太离谱了,我买不起。

  Chinglish: This hat is extremely expensive, I can't buy it.

  Revision: This hat is so expensive that I can't afford it.

  2、这个村子里好多儿童都上不起学。

  Chinglish: Lots of kids can't go to school because they're poor. (意思表达出来了但是不精练)

  Revision: Plenty of kids in this village can't afford to go to school (can't afford education).

  小新赖以生存就不能放弃工作。I can't afford to lose my job, because I'm the bread-winner and I have a big family to support.

  deserve

  使用频率:★★

  造句功能:★★

  西方思维:★★★★★

  这个词字面意思是“值得”、“该受到”,可褒可贬。用到的场合其实挺多的。几个例句就可以解决问题。

  1、你是老鼠戏猫,真是自作自受!

  Chinglish: You're like a rat teasing a cat... (...下面不会了)

  Revision: I think you're playing with fire. You deserve it!

  2、那个好心女孩终于嫁给了她的心上人。她是有好报。

  Chinglish: That good-hearted girl was married to the man in her heart at last. She was good so she had a good end.

  Revision: That good-hearted girl married her 'prince' finally. She deserved it.

  3、你竟敢这样对我?找打啊?

  Chinglish: How dare you do this to me? Do you want me to beat you?

  Revision: How dare you do this to me? You deserve a kick in the ass!

  这个词比较微妙,个人喜欢这个词,不多说了。

  If you think that I deserve some applauses or flowers, why not let me know about it.
