    一起床搞卫生一直到现在
    I have been doing thorough cleaning till now very since I got up

    打算今天下午运动两个小时
    I have decided to do two hours exercise this afternoon.

    打算一词,译法太多. 只要是"经过思考而决定要做的事", 都可以表达这个意思.口语中常用 to be going to,would like to do 结构, 只用will也可以。其它的词,如: decide, plane, think about 等等,都可以用。但want这词太中性,没有偏重的意义表达。用在口语里,语气比较生硬。 所以使用较少。

    而“运动”一词,词义偏重的不同,也选择使用。Sport 是中性词,athletics 和田径有关,calisthenics 则和体形有关,属于健美的那种,exercise 则指活动活动,简单的休操或户外运动。与球类有关,就要用play了。

“It is in (or with)…as in(or with)”

    这个表现法是由“as…so”转变而来,意为“is like”,可译为,“正好象,犹如”等。如果句:

674. It is in life as in a journey.
人生好比旅行一样.

在例句里,it 并不真正地指什么,只是一般的用法。此句也可以说成:Life is like a journey.

675. It is in studying as in eating; he who does it gets the benefits, and not he who sees it done.

       “As much”
       “as many”
       “like so many”
解说:as much有三个意思:1,表示同样程度,同样份量;2、表示同等,同样,可译为也;3、同一事物。
as many表示同样数量。
like so many 表示好像同样多的数量。可译为“宛如…似的”

700. The merchant as good as promise the orphan boy, that he would adopt him.

“as good as”
“as well as”
“as good as”有两个意思:1、同样,等于2、实际上,其实,在各要点上。
“As well as”有4个意思:1、等于,一样;2、与…及…3、既…又、4、与其…不如。第四种用法较少。

690~700

句首的as it is
句尾的as it is

解说:句首的as it is用在表示假设的语气之后,表示"实际上",同样意义的表达法有
as matter of fact, as matters stand, as the case stands, as things go等等

句尾的as it is 表示"保持原来的样子", 当前面提到的物为复数时, 改为 as they are.

760. You may as well begin at once.

关于
“may as well ……as”
       “might as well ……as”
 的解说:
    两个都用于现在时,并没有时态的区别,只是前者指“可能的事”,后者是“不可能的事”。所以前者表达“合理的”、“理所当然的”意思,更进一点,就是“还是…的好”
    后者不同,看第758句,throw your money away是谁也不干的蠢事,而spend it in gambling也是愚不可及。表示两件事的程度相当。由于作用在于加强否定,就采用“与其这样,还不如那样的好”类似的说法有had better, rather…than等。后面会碰到。
再看例句:

761. You might as well throw your money into the see as lend it to him.
你把钱借给他还不如扔到海里算了。

我那样说就等于那样做。

770. You might as well let me broke my computer as leave MSDN.
(这句就不写译文了)。

“so that …may”
    “lest ….should”
   这两个表现方法,都是表达目的。“lest…should”的用法较古,且带有否定的意思。现在多用”for fear that”来代替了,也可能用in case…should来表达,只不过在现代口语中,常把should省去不用,只用动词原型。如:Take care lest you fall,当心不要跌倒。 “that….may”也有古文的味道, “in order that…may”则是现在的表达方法。So as not to…也很普遍。

771. We whispered lest he should hear.
怕他听见所以细声说。

772. Man does not live that he may eat, but eats that he may live.

“cannot help+动名词”
    “cannot but…原形不定式”
在cannot help…中的help,意思是“避免”,可用“avoid”,“resist”, “forbear”等来代替,同义的说法还有“cannot keep(refrain, abstain) from -ing”。Cannot but 的表达方法,听起来有点“文言文”的味道。其中的but=except,意为:除了那件事以外,什么也不能做。

782. I cannot but admire his courage.
我对于他的勇气不胜佩服。(两句相同)。

790. She could not help sympathizing with every little helpless thing; her heart was always touched by a bird or beast that had been burt.
她对那些弱小无助的东西都不禁对之发生同情,遇到受伤的小鸟或小兽,总要为之心痛.

Have+宾语(物)+过去分词

   这是一个很常用的结构。在这个结构中,有三种意思,1)表达主语的意志,2)表达的意思与主语无关;3)保持一种被动状态。

在791句中,表达了主语的意志,即修表是我要去修的,是使动,修表不是我做,是我让别人做的。所以不是主语的意志,被动。

791. I had my watch mended.
我找人把我的表修理好了。

在792句中,把表弄破是我不想干的事,

792. I had my watch broken.
我把我的表弄破了

793句中表达的则是另一个意思。

793. We have our enemy almost surrounded.
我们差不多把敌人包围起来了。

其它的例子有:

810. After paying his bill and buying his railway ticket, he had only fifty cents left.

have+宾语(人)+动词原形
     这个结构有两种解释:凡在主语无意识之下发生的事,用作被动;若主语有意志在的话,就是使动含义。何时为被动,何时为使动,要看前后文才能决定。但有时从助动词上能看行出来。

811. Did he have his hair cut yesterday?

“Had better+原形不定式”
“would rather+原形不定式”

第一句有劝告的意思,译为:最好如何如何,有时也可以说成had best。第二句有选择的意思,译为宁肯,二者不可混,如果加上了than,这个意思就更明显了。

当had better 用于第二人称时,就有了带有命令的口气。意思是:have a duty to do ,或have an obligation to do的意思。说You had better go away. 就有了You should do what you are told or else you will suffer rather serious consequences.的含义在里面。所以,不要对长辈说you had better.也不要对不太熟悉的人这样说。与其说: You had better take a bus. 不如说:I地I were you, I will take a bus. 请好好品味。
