英文病句急诊室300句,分析在口语和写作中容易犯的英语错误,含有正确使用方法及解析。

1.   In this aspect, we are in complete agreement.(x)
      In this respect, we are in complete agreement.(√)

提及刚说过的内容时,只用in this/that respect,即指“在这/那方面”。

2.   He assured me his help. (x)
      He assured me of his help.(√)
      He assured me that he would help me. (√)

assure sb of sth意为“向某人保证一定可获得某物”,为固定用法。另外,assure sb之后亦可接that从句。

3.   You may rest assure that everything will turn out all right. (x)
      You may rest assured that everything will turn out all right.(√)

rest assured that...指“某人大可放心……”,为固定用法。

4.   The dissident is now looking for asylum in the United States.(x)
      The dissident is now seeking asylum in the United States. (√)

seek (political) asylum意为“寻求(政治)庇护”,是固定用法。不可用!ook for取代seek。

5.   Since 1948 Israel has never been in peace. (x)
      Since 1948 Israel has never been at peace. (√)

in peace=peacefully,是副词词组,意为“和平地”或“不受干扰地”,如:They came in peace.(他们带着善意而来。)或 I just want to have my meal in peace.(我只是想要不受干扰、好好吃顿饭。) be at peace / war / rest / work,即“在和平/战争林息/工作的状态”,是形容词的用法。

6.   You may reach me by 2331-7600. (x)
      You may reach me at 2331-7600. (√)

告诉他人电话号码时,"at+电话号码”为美式用法;"on+电话号码”为英式用法。

7.   A: What time is the concert?
      B: It's 7:30.(x)
      A: What time is the concert?
      B: It's at 7:30. (√)

针对某一事件/活动发生的时刻,应该用“It's at+时刻”。如对方问“现在几点?”,才可答“It's+时刻”,如:A: What time is it? B: It's 7:30.

8.   Several athletic reporters are writing for the sports magazine.(x)
      Several athletics reporters are writing for the sports magazine.(√)

athletic是形容词,意为“体格健壮并爱好运动的”。因此 athletic reporters是指有上述这类特征的记者。athletics指“各种运动项目”,所以体育记者应说athletics repotteis。

9.   The exhaust emissions will definitely worsen the pollution of atmosphere.(x)
      The exhaust emissions will definitely worsen the pollution of the atmosphere.(√)

指“大气(层)”时应说the atmosphere。指“气氛(氛围)”时,常用a(n)+adj.+atmosphere或an atmosphere of+N,如:A tense atmosphere filled the banqueting hall.=An atmosphere of tension filled the banqueting hall.(整个宴会厅充满着紧张的气氛。)

10.   Someone made an attempt to the mayor's life.(x)
        Someone made an attempt on the mayor's life. (√)
 

make an attempt to+V,意为“企图做……”,如:He made an attempt to resist arrest but failed.(他企图拒捕但失败了。)make an attempt on sb's life是“企图杀害某人”的意思。
