“换一个”=change another吗

来源:互联网编辑:小红

  “换一个” =change another

  要表示英语的“换一个”,是change another, 还是change it for another?请看下面的考题:

  The camera isn’t good enough; I want to change ______.

  A. another                                  B. a good one

  C. it with another                        D. it for another

   此题容易根据汉语字面意思误选A、B。其实,此题最佳答案为D。英语中的 change sth 表示的是“换某物”,sth 是被换的东西,而 change sth for sth else 表示的才是“用某物换另一物”。比较:

  That coat was too large and I had to change it. 那件外套太大了,我得去换一件。

  You’d better change that shirt for a large one. 你最好把那件衬衣去换件大号的。

  That coat was too large and I had to change it for a smaller one. 那件外套太大了,我得去换一件小一点的。

  注意它与change sth into sth(把某物变成或换成某物)不同。如:

  We can change ice into water by heating it. 通过加热我们可以把冰变成水。

  Mr Smiths changed his dollars into francs. 史密斯先生把美元换成了法郎。

  比较以下两句介用 for 和 into 所导致含义的差别:

  The singer changed his piano for a computer. 这位歌唱家用他的钢琴换了台电脑。

  The magician changed the piano into a computer. 这位魔术师把钢琴变成了电脑。
