  Notes on the text课文注释
  1  my four-year-old daughter,我那4岁的女儿。
  four-year-old是名词daughter的定语,常常用连字符连在一起,组成一个复合形容词。注意在这个复合词中仅用year,而不用复数。
  2  Sally was invited to a children's party.
  这是一个被动语态的例子。在英文中,如果想避免用含混不清的词(如someone等)作主语,常常可使用被动语态。被动语态由相应的be动词加上过去分词组成。
  3  she had never travelled on a train before,
  副词before通常用于完成时(现在完成时或过去完成时)的句子里,ago用在过去时的句子里。
  4  be dressed in…,穿戴着……。
  5  make up her face,往她的脸上施脂粉。
  6  make myself beautiful,把自己打扮漂亮。

  课文详注  Further notes on the text

  1.my four-year-old daughter,我那4岁的女儿。
  four-year-old 是名词 daughter的定语。各词用连字符连在一起,构成一个复合形容词。注意在这个复合词中仅用 year,而不用复数:
  a thirteen-year-old girl 一个13岁的姑娘

  2.… Sally was invited to a children's party.    …萨莉被邀请去参加一个儿童聚会。
  这是一个被动语态的例子。在英文中,如果想避免用含混不清的词(如 someone等)作主语,常常可使用被动词态。(具体请参见本课语法部分。)被动语态由相应的be动词加上过去分词构成:
  It is repaired regularly.
  它定期修理。
  They are corrected regularly.
  它们得到了定期校正。
  He was met at the station this morning.
  今早有人在车站接他。

  3.a middle-aged lady,一位中年女士。
  middle-aged是一个复合形容词,由名词+过去分词构成。又如:
  hand-made手工制作的

  4.opposite Sally,在萨莉的对面。
  这是介词短语,作状语,表示sat的具体情况。

  5.take out,拿出。

  6.make up her face,往她的脸上施脂粉。
  make up意为“化妆”、“打扮”(指擦胭脂、抹粉)。

  7.To make myself beautiful …  把自己打扮漂亮…
  这是一个省略句,句首省略了I am doing that,而只留下这个作目的状语的动词不定式短语。

  8.put away,收拾好,储存备用。


  语法 Grammar in use
  被动语态(1)
  英语动词有主动语态和被动语态之分。在主动句中,动词的主语是执行动作的人或物。在被动句中,主语是动作的承受者。
  在英语中被动词态用得很普遍,这样做可以避免用不明确的词作主语,或是将说话的重点放在事件而不是造成该事件的人或物上。
  被动语态的构成: be +过去分词。
  过去分词不一定指过去。请看例句:
  (1)一般现在时形式: am/are/is +过去分词:
  The room is aired regularly.
  这个房间定期通风。
  The knives are sharpened regularly.
  刀定期磨。
  (2)一般过去时形式: was/were +过去分词:
  She was dressed in red.
  她身穿红色衣服。
  The windows were opened this morning.
  窗户今早是开着的/被打开了。
  (3)英语中表达感情的动词通常可用于被动式,这些动词如
  amuse, embarrass, worry, surprise, interest, upset等:
  She is embarrassed.
  她感到尴尬。
  They were worried.
  他们感到担忧。
