means用法易错点

Every possible means ________ been tried,and we find only ________ this means can we do it well.

有这样一道题,请看看:

Every possible means ________ been triedand we find only ________ this means can we do it well.

A. havein                        B. haveby                        C. hasin                        D. hasby

此题应选 D。其余几项均容易被误选。这里主要涉及名词means(方式,方法,手段)的用法与搭配:

1. 同形(永远有词尾-s)。若用作主语,其谓语的数需根据句意来确定。比较:

All possible means have been tried. 所有可能的办法都已经试过了。

Every possible means has been tried. 每种可能的办法都已经试过了。

若句意不能明确地表明主语的单,其谓语则用单数或均可:

Is [Are] there any other means of doing it? 做这事还有其他的什么办法吗?

2. 表示以某种方式、方法或手段,用介词by

Only by this means can you do it well. 只有通过这种办法你才能做好此事。

有时用 by means of,意为:用……,依靠……:

Thoughts are expressed by means of words. 思想靠语言来表达。

3. 表示做某事的方法或手段,多接“of()名词”:

But they had no means of cooking them. 但是他们没有办法来把它们煮熟。

Taking a plane is the quickest means of getting there. 去那儿最快的办法是坐飞机。
