newspaper(报纸)可数吗

Newspapers littered the floor. 报纸扔了一地。

许多同学为便于记忆,学将 newspaper 分解为 news(消息)和 paper(纸)――也就是说,把“消息”印在“纸”上就成了“报纸”。由于news(消息)和 paper(纸)均为不可数名词,所以许多同学就想当然地认为 newspaper(报纸)也是一个不可数名词,但是,错了!当我们把 newspaper 当作一种供阅读或传递信息的东西时,它是可数的――可以连用不定冠词,也可以使用复数形式。如:

Newspapers littered the floor. 报纸扔了一地。

Newspapers are a medium for advertising. 报纸是广告的媒介。

He often writes articles for newspapers. 他常为报社写文章。

They read heaps of newspapers. 他们阅读了大量的报纸。

The newspapers are full of depressing news. 报纸充满令人抑郁的消息。

I’ve got so little time; I hardly ever read newspapers. 我时间很紧,不怎么看报。

Our company advertises on television and in newspapers. 我们的公司在电视和报纸上做广告。

His mother learned of her son’s success in the newspapers. 他母亲从报纸上得知她儿子成功的消息。

但是,假若将其仅仅当作一种“纸”来看待,则可以是不可数的。如:

He wrapped the present in newspaper. 他把礼物用报纸包起来。
