副词 very 用法小归纳

1. 用作形容词,意为“正是”、“恰是”,通常要与 the, this, that, my,  your 等连用。如:

The very idea [thought]. 真是个馊主意。

You are the very man I want to see. 你正是我想要见的人。

At that very moment the phone rang. 就在那时电话铃响了。

2. 用作副词,表示“很”、“非常”,注意以用法:

(1) 主要用来修饰形容词或副词的原级,但不能修饰比较级。如:

这本书便宜得多。

正:This book is much cheaper.

误:This book is very cheaper.

注:very 不能修饰比较级,但有时可用来修饰最高级(放在定冠词之后)。如:

This is the very best dictionary. 这是最最好的词典。

但是 very 通常不修饰由 most 构成的最高级。

(2) 用于修饰 own, first, last, next, same 等词,加强语气。如:

She was wearing the very same shoes as me. 他与我穿的鞋子完全一样。

You can keep this for your very own. 你可以把这个留作你自己用。

I found the sentence on the very next page. 我就在下一页找到了这个句子。

(3) 某些表语形容词通常不用 very 修饰。如:

误:very asleep / very awake / very alone

正:fast asleep / wide awake / all alone

(4) 不要根据汉语意思用 very 去修饰动词。如:

我们很喜欢这个小男孩。

正:We like the boy very much.

误:We very like the boy.

我很想留在这儿。

正:I want to stay here very much.

误:I very want to stay here.

我会非常想念你们的。

正:I shall miss you very much.

误:I shall very miss you.
