More than的用法

简简单单的“more than”,用法可多呢!

  下面是些好例子:

  ● A. “More than+名词”表示“多于……”、“非但……尤其是”如:
  1)  Modern science is more than a large amount of information.
  2)  Jason is more than a lecturer; he is a writer, too.

  ● B. “More than+数词”含“以上”或“不止”之意,如:
  3)   I have known David for more than 20 years.
  4)  Let's carry out the test with more than the sample copy.

  ● C. “More than+形容词”等于“很”或“非常”的意思,如:
  5)  In doing scientific experiments, one must be more than careful with the instruments.
  6)  I assure you I am more than glad to help you.

  ● D. 在“More……than……”中,肯定“more”后面的而否定“than”后面的,约等于“是……而不是……”如:
  7)  The difference between pure linguistics and applied linguistics is more apparent than real.
  8)  This book seems to be more a manual than a text.
  9)  Catherine is more diligent than intelli-gent.
  10)  Hearing the loud noise, the boy was more surprised than frightened.

  ● E. “More than”或“More……than……”+含“can”的分句时表示“否定意”,如:
  11)  That's more than I can do.
  12)  Don't bite off more than you can chew.
  13)  In delivering his lecture, Jason makes sure not to include more things than the students can understand.

  ● F. “No more……than……”表示“不……;不如……”,如:
  14)  I can no more do that than anyone else.
  15)  A learner can no more obtain knowledge without reading than a farmer can get good harvest without ploughing.
  “No more………than……”的语义,也可用“not any more than……”来取代,因此 15 可以变成 16.
  16)  A learner cannot…… any more than ……“同样的, 17可以变成 18:
  17)  Dr Hu is no more a poet than Dr Wu is a philosopher.
  18)  Dr Hu is not a poet any more than Dr Wu is a philosopher.

  此外,“more than”也在一些惯用语中出现,如:

  19)  More offen than not (经常),people tend to pay attention to what they can take rather than what they can give.
  20)  All of us are more than a little concerned about(非常关心)the current economic problems.

  总之,“more than”看似简单,其实很有内涵,味道隽永。
