  Notes on the text课文注释
  1  在It must be Karen Marsh...这一句中,must be是英文中用来表示根据事实所作的推论,往往译为
  "一定"。must be的否定式是can't be,如Kate的话“It can't be.”是对Liz的推论("That must be Conrad Reeves.")的否定。同时,请注意这里的can't be(表示不可能)和第45课中I can't type this letter.(表示能力)的区别。
  2  Who's that beside her?
  本句中that指人。
  3  her fourth or fifth后面省略了husband。
  4  Not that long ago!
  句中的that是副词、指像Kate所说的“那么”遥远,可译作“那样”,“那么”。课文中用斜体印刷表示一种强调,显然Liz对Kate的判断和对她本人年龄的估算很不满意。
 

  Lesson 128   He can't be…他不可能…   He must be…他肯定是…



  Lesson 127-128   自学导读 First things first

  课文详注  Further notes on the text
  1.I thought so.我也这样想。
  so 是代词,意为“这样”、“如此”。 I think so的否定式为I don't think so(我不这样认为)。类似用so的短句如:
  I hope  so.
  我希望如此。
  I expect so.
  我期待如此。
  I told you so.
  我这么告诉过你的。

  2.have another look,再(仔细)看一眼。

  3. look old,看上去老。
  这里look是系动词,后跟表语。

  4.at least,至少。

  5.I'm sure she is.我肯定她有40岁了。
  其后省略了 at least forty。

  6.not more than twenty-nine myself,我自己还没29岁。
  其中not more than是“不超过”、“不到”的意思。这里反身代词myself是I的同位语,用来加强语气。
  She did it herself.
  这事是她自己做的。


  语法 Grammar in use
  表示猜测和推断的情态助动词must和can't(1)
  表示最有力的推论的最常用的形式是must和can't。这时,它们一般与系动词be连用。肯定的推断用 must be来表示,否定的推断用 can't  be来表示,而不用mustn't。请看例句:
  He can't be a doctor. He must be a dentist.
  他不会是个医生。他一定是位牙医。
  She can't be Danish. She must be Norwegian.
  她不会是丹麦人。她一定是挪威人。
  He can't be shaving. He must be having a bath.
  他不可能在剃胡子。他一定是在洗澡。
  It can't be cheap. It must be expensive.
  它不会便宜。一定价格昂贵。
  He can't be ill. He must be tired.
  他不可能生病了。他肯定是累了。
