imagine的用法和搭配(imagine的短语及例句总结)

 

重点词汇imagine用法解析
 

1. 表示“想象”,其后可接动名词(可以有逻辑主语),但不能接不定式。如:

注意,imagine 后不接不定式或不定式的复合结构,但有时可接带不定式 to be 的复合结构(to be 有时可省略或换成as)。如:

我本来以为她的年龄还要大一些。

2. 表示“想”“认为”,后接 that 从句时,若从句为否定,通常将其否定转移到主句上。如:

I don’t imagine that he will come. 我想他不会来的。

但是,这4个例句却不用否定转移,因为不是以that引导的 从句:

I couldn't imagine why he would want to be alone with me

我想象不出为什么他会想和我独处。

在简略说法中可用 so, not 代替 that 从句。如:

A:Will he come? 他会来吗?

B:I imagine so (not). 我想会来(不会来了)。

'Was he meeting someone?' — 'I imagine so.'

“他在和谁约会吗?”——“我猜是的。”《柯林斯高阶英汉双解学习词典》
