- 表示“在某商店买”可接介词at; 表示“从某处买”可接介词from, of, off; 表示“花多少钱买”可接介词for, at；表示“给某人买”可说buy sb sth，也可说buy sth for sb，不能说buy sth to sb。
- buy偶尔可用于进行时,此时常具有特殊意义,如“抢购”“以分期付款的方式购买”等。例如:Everybody's buying the Trumpet .人们在抢购《号角》报。I was hard up last year because I was buying a colour TV set.去年我的手头比较紧,因为我在偿还买一台彩电的分期付款。
- buy在作“把…信以为真”解时,可以表示真信,也可以表示权宜之举。例如:Yet it seemed she was buying my story.然而,她好像真的相信我的话。You tell me the committee wants me to be its secretary next year. All right,I'll buy it.你说委员会要我明年当它的秘书。那好,我暂且相信它吧。
- buy的宾语后可接cheap, expensive, new等形容词,表示宾语的性质或状态。对于这种结构,有人认为是宾语补足语,也有人认为是状语,还有人认为是后置定语。
- buy作名词时的意思有二:一是“买卖”,指用于商品交换间的交易; 二是“便宜货”,指价格上略低的货物。
- buy sb sth, buy sth for sb
buy接双宾语时可采用上面这两种语序,但并非任何情况下都可以互换。当直接宾语是名词时,这两种语序均可使用,但直接宾语是代词时,只能用buy sth for sb。例如:
- ［误］ He bought me it.
- ［正］ He bought it for me.
- buy, afford
afford和buy都有“买”的意思,但afford侧重“有无经济能力买”,而buy则侧重“购买的行为”,表示“我买不起”可以说I can't afford,但不可说I can't buy.因为后者的意思是“即使有钱也不准买”。另外, buy常可用在afford后作宾语。
- buy, purchase
这两个词的共同意思是“买”。其区别是：buy是普通用词,通常用于买菜、买肉、买房子、买珠宝等; purchase是正式用语,表示经过周密计划以后才买,或是由于业务上的需要大规模地购买,所以在许多用purchase的场合都可以用buy,但许多用buy的场合却不一定能用purchase。例如:You can buy anything in that store for less than ten dollars.在这家商店里,花上不到10美元你就可以买上任何东西。They purchased〔bought〕 a new house.他们买了一栋新房子。
