- a bit和a bit of都是名词短语,在句中作程度状语,意思是“有点儿,少许”。a bit可修饰形容词或副词的原级或比较级,还可修饰全句。a bit of则在句中用作定语,修饰不可数名词时意为“一点点”；修饰单数可数名词时意为“有点像”。为了强调,还可以说a little bit, a least bit等。
- not a bit可用作程度副词,表示接近于零程度,以加强否定意义,作“一点也没〔不〕”解,多修饰形容词,也可修饰动词。
- bit表示“一点”的意思，但是做定语的时候，应该用其短语形式“a bit of”表示“一点儿”；
- a bit，a little和a little bit三者意思相同，解释为“一些（地）”；
not a bit，not a little bit和not a little不全表示相同意思。前两者表示“一点也不”的意思，但not a little却是“很……”的意思。且值得注意的是，前两者中的not与后面的a bit和a little bit可分开，但是not a little不可分开。
He did not feel a bit sorry.
He felt a little sorry.
- bit, piece
- 这两个词都有“碎片”的意思。其区别在于:bit强调片或块的“小”,即“小碎片”; 而piece指碎片时则可大可小。例如:
- The glass broke into bits.
- The glass broke into pieces.
误 I'm a bit of tired.I think I'll go home.
正 I'm a bit tired.I think I'll go home.请给我一点纸。
误 Please give me a bit paper.
正 Please give me a bit of paper.
析 a bit修饰形容词、副词时充当程度副词,其后不可接介词of,但修饰名词时须接of。我非常饿。
误 I'm not a bit hungry.
正 I'm not a little hungry.
析 not a bit的意思是“一点儿没有”,相当于not at all; 而not a little的意思恰恰与其相反,表示“非常”“不可”。
- ☆ 直接源自古英语的bite，意为一点儿。
