y father will be back from America at present.
［正］ My father will be back from America presently.
［析］ presently有两个意思：其一是最近，不久，其二在美语中是现在之意，与at present相同。而for the present为暂时，如： I teach English in the school for the present.
［误］ I'll be back at the moment.
［正］ I'll be back in a moment.
［析］ at the moment 其意为"现在，当时"，而in a moment意为"马上过一会"，与in a minute意思相近。
［误］ The train from Shanghai will arrive here in time.
［正］ The train from Shanghai will arrive here on time.
［析］ on time为"准时"，而in time有两个含意。其一是"及时"，如：The doctor arrived in time。其二是"将来，终究"。
［误］ I met an old friend sometimes last month.
［正］ I met an old friend sometime last month.
［析］ Sometime 过去，或者将来某时。Sometimes 有时
如： Sometimes I go to school by bus.Some time 一些时间
如： I need sometime to do my homework. Some times 几次
如： I went to Shanghai sometimes this month.
at times 有时，偶尔
at all times 经常
some other time 改天
［误］ I had met an old friend three days ago.
［正］ I had met an old friend three days before.
［正］ I met an old friend three days ago.
* ago 用在时间状语中时，主句中谓语动词一般用过去时，而before用于时间状语时则主句的谓语动词宜用完成时态。
［误］ He studied very hard. and at the end he passed the exam.
［正］ He studied very hard, and in the end he passed the exam.
［析］ in the end＝at last 意为"最终，终于"，表达经过若干努力而达到的结果。而at the end是在某事的结束时如何如何，如：At the end of class, the teacher gave us some story books。
［误］ I will come here to help you each three days.
［正］ I will come here to help you every three days.
［析］ every three days 为"每三天"，即每隔二天，而every other day为每隔一天。
［误］ He didn't go to the cinema yesterday. and I didn't go, too.
［正］ He didn't go to the cinema yesterday and I didn't go either.
中表示"也"，有4个字，also, as well, too, either，但either用于否定句中，而前3个用于肯定句中。在肯定句中too与as well一般要用在句尾，而also则可用于句中。如：She went to the party and her boy friend went there too. 又如： I've also read her other novels.
［误］ We should help the poor girl in anyway.
［正］ We should help the poor girl in any way.
［析］ anyway为"不管怎么"讲，"无论如何"，如：What a terrible accident, anyway no one was hurt.
any way 为"任何方式"。这种常见的错误还发生在以下几组词中，如：
everyday 日常的 every day 每天
faraway 遥远的 far away 远离
altogether 总计 all together 一块，大家一起
already 已经 all ready 全准备好了
［误］ You can come to the doctor's at anytime.
［正］ You can come to the doctor's at any time.
［析］ anytime 是副词 而any time中的time是名词。
［误］ She said nearly nothing.
［正］ She said almost nothing.
［析］ nearly 与 almost的含意相近，在很多场合可以互换，但在否定词前用almost。
［误］ There are too much mistakes in your homework.
［正］ There are too many mistakes in your homework.
［析］ too much 后接不可数名词，如：There is too much water for the flowers. 而too many 后加可数名词，much too 后面加形容词，如：It is much too difficult to learn English well.
［误］ It is late enough that we can go home now.
［正］ It is late enough for us to go home now.
［析］ 要注意的是enough后面一般不接从句而接不定式，或不定式的复合结构：for somebody to do something。
［误］ The twins are very alike.
［正］ The twins are much alike.
［误］ - How long does he write to his parents?
- Once a week.
［正］ - How often does he write to his parents?
- Once a week.
［析］ 英other and her daughter are exactly like.
［正］ Mother and her daughter are exactly alike.
* like 作为介词，其意为"像"，应用于 look like, be like, sound like, 其后要加宾语。而 alike 是形容词，或副词，如: You and I think alike. The twins are dressed alike。 但 alike 仅作表语而不能用于名词前作定语。
［误］ Who is taller of the two?
［正］ Who is the taller of the two?
［误］ I have less books than Tom.
［正］ I have fewer books than Tom.
［析］ less 是 little的比较级，而fewer是few的比较级。less后应加不可数名词而fewer后是可数名词。
［误］ There are three girls in my group. The cleverer is Mary.
［正］ There are three girls in my group. The cleverest is Mary.
［误］ The boy sat there as quiet as his sister.
［正］ The boy sat there as quietly as his sister.
［析］ as…as的用法要注意的是：①在其中间应加形容词或副词的原级，而不可加比较级，也有的语法书中称为同级比较。②要根据句意决定是加形容词还是副词，这要看它具体是修饰动词还是名词而定，如：He is as good as his friend.
［误］ The harder you study, and you can learn more.
［正］ The harder you study, the more you can learn.
［析］ 英ost of stories in this book are written in English.
［正］ Most of the stories in this book are written in English.
［正］ Most stories in this book are written in English.
［析］ "大多数"一词的表达法有most of the +名词，或most+名词。当用前一种结构时，其后面的定冠词不可少。
［误］ The temperature of that room is higher than this room.
［正］ The temperature of that room is higher than that of this room.
［析］ 比较级用于两句话之间时，比较的部分不可省略掉，但为了避免重复，一般都要用that代替前面的单数名词，而用those代替前面的复数名词，如：The books in that box are bigger than those in this box。
［误］ He is no more here. Maybe he is at home.
［正］ He is no longer here. Maybe he is at home.
［析］ no more在现代英语中多译为："从此再也不会了"，如：His voice is no more here. 他已经去世了，他的声音不可能再出现了。而用no longer 表达目前的状态。要注意下面几组句子的实际含意：This room is no cleaner than that one.即两间屋子都不干净。(两者都不干净) This room is not cleaner than that one,即这屋子不如那间干净。(前者不如后者干净。即一间干净，一间不干净。)

2 - What does Lucy like better, singing or dancing?
- Singing. of course. She's known to ＿＿＿ it.
A. be good at B. be good for

C. are interested at D. are interesting to
［析］ 过去分词常用来修饰人，而现在分词常用来修饰物，如：an interesting book， 实际上过去分词含有被动之意，如：interested 其含意是"被……所吸引，感动"。而interesting 则为"使人感兴趣的"，如：an interesting man 一个有趣、风趣的人。
11 The twins are together most of the time. So they never feel ＿＿＿ .
A. alone B. lonely
C. happily D. friendly
［析］ alone意为"独自的，一个人的"，它只能作表语不能作定语。I am not alone in doing such a thing.而lonely 意为"寂寞的，孤单的"，如：The old man felt lonely. 要体会两个词的区别，如：The old man lived alone, but he didn't feel lonely.
12 What a ＿＿＿ cough! You seem ＿＿＿ ill.
A. terrible, terribly B. terribly, terrible
C. terrible, terrible D. terribly, terribly
［析］ terrible是形容词，而terribly是副词，第一个空是修饰名词的，所以应填入形容词。第二个空ill是形容词，这里terribly 是用来修饰ill的。

16 Jim is ＿＿＿ at all his lessons. And I'm sure he'll do very ＿＿＿ in the exams.
A. well, good B. good, well
C. well, well D. good, good
［析］ good为形容词，如：He is good. 他是个好人。而well作为身体状况的好坏讲时是形容词，如：He is well为他身体不错，而作为其他意思时为副词，如：He speaks English well.
17 You look ＿＿＿ than before， why?

C. tired D. thirsty
19 - Can you understand me?
- Sorry, I can ＿＿＿ understand you.
A. hardly B. almost
C. even D. ever
［析］ hardly为一否定词，用在句中时应被看作是否定句。在答语中Sorry决定了其意为"听不明白"，所以只能选 hardly。
20 "＿＿＿ do you write to your penfriend?"
"About twice a month."
A. How often B. How soon
C. How much D. How long
［析］ how often用来提问某一动作经多久就要发生一次，也就是提问发生的频率。how soon是问从现在起还有多久。

A. long B. longer
C. longest D. the longest
22 I'll work ＿＿＿ I can.
A. so hardly as B. so hard as
C. as hardly as D. as hard as
［析］ hard可用作形容词和副词，如：The desk was made of hard wood 又如：It is raining hard。 而 hardly 是副词，其词义是"几乎不"，如：Hardly did I sleep last night. 我昨晚几乎没有睡觉。而且hardly用于句首时要采用倒装语序。as…as即可以用于肯定句，也可以用于否定句，但so…as则只能用于否定句中。
23 It is very ＿＿＿ to listen to him.
A. interested B. interesting
C. interested in D. interest
［析］ interest作为名词有两个词义，①兴趣，②银行中所讲的利息。而其形容词 interesting是"使人感兴
