如何正确使用数,量,程度和强度

在雅思写作和雅思口语中,数量词的使用是大家容易错的地方,不同的量词修饰可数名词还是不可数名词,在写作中用还是在口语中用,甚至量词前面的修饰程度词的细微差别也都是有讲究的。下面给大家分析几个常用的量词和程度词,强度副词,希望大家熟练运用。

首先是number和amount的用法

Number 用于可数名词

比如,a large number of students

Amount 用于不可数名词

比如,a large amount of money

Number和amount前面可以用形容词修饰,从左到右依次增大

Tiny →small→ average→ large/considerable→ gigantic→ enormous/huge/vast

 

雅思口语中描述做菜时,可以用Add just a tiny amount of chilli pepper, or lese it may get too hot.

A considerable number of people failed to get tickets.(正式用法)

Vast amounts of money have bee4n wasted on this project.

 

表示数量的非正式口语词汇

Dozens of

Heaps of

Bags of

Loads of

Tons of

雅思口语中用上面的词来代替lots of,词汇就上一个档次

A drop of

A drop of wine is enough for me.  我就要一点点酒就够了、

程度和强度

A bit

Quite

Rather

Fairly

Very

Really

Awfully

Extremely

上面这些副词与表示程度的形容词连用,例如tired, worried, weak, hot

Quite shocked, extremely anxious, a bit sad,

——————————————————-

Totally

Absolutely

Completely

Utterly

与表示极端的形容词连用,如ruined,exhausted,destroyed,wrong等
