two other 还是 other two

把“他又写了两本小说”译成英语,应该如何说呢?下面三句,有两句是对的,有一句是错的,请问哪一句是错的?

A. He has written two other novels.    

B. He has written other two novels.

C. He has written two more novels.

此题应选B。other与数词连用时,要注意以下习惯。如:

1. 若泛指(即没有冠词),数词应放在other之前。如:

桌上另外有两本书。

正:There are two other books on the desk.

误:There are other two books on the desk.

又有两个学生入了团。

正:Two other students have joined the League.

误:Other two students have joined the League.

正:Another two students have joined the League.

正:Two more students have joined the League.

2. 若特指(即其前用the),则数词可以放在other之前或之后。如:

把另外两本书给我。

正:Give me the other two books.

正:Give me the two other books.

其他三位乘客是妇女。

正:The other three passengers were women.

正:The three other passengers were women.

比较:There were three other passengers on thebus. 公共汽车上还有三位乘客。
