The longest day is equall to the longest night.出自：N. Carpenter
The day was overcast and drippy.出自：S. King
- day还可作“时期; 时代; 寿命”解,常用复数形式,若用单数常须与my, their等物主代词连用。
- day可用作量词, a day可表示“每天”。
- 当定语从句所修饰的词是day时,关系词that/when/which多省略。例如:His father died the day when he was born.他父亲在他出生那一天去世了。
- day and night和night and day,有的词典认为两者意思有些不同:day and night等于continuously,用于以昼为主的场合, night and day等于always,用于以夜为主的场合,实际上,两者现已无区别地使用,都是“日夜不停地,日日夜夜地”的意思。
- the day before yesterday(前天), the day after tomorrow(后天)等这些短语里的the在美式英语中可以省略。例如:He left for London (the) day before yesterday.他前天启程去伦敦了。
- save a day, save the day
save a day的意思是“省了一天的时间”, save the day的意思则是“反败为胜,转危为安”。例如:We saved a day by taking a plane there.我们乘飞机去那里,因而节省了一天的时间。The team was behind, but at the last minute Tom saved the day with a touchdown.这支球队一直落后,然而在最后的时刻汤姆一次底线得分使球队反败为胜。
- by day, by the day
前者意思是“在白天”; 而后者意思是“按日计算”。例如:We travelled by day and stayed at inns at night.我们白天旅行,晚上住在客栈。In some countries, most of the workers get their pay by the day.在某些国家里,大部分工人是按日计酬的。
- of a day, of the day
前者意思是“短促”; 而后者意思是“当时,当代”。例如:It is nothing than a stuff of a day.这无非是昙花一现而已。It was a twice-told tale of the day.这便是当时传诵一时的老话题。
- day after day, day by day
这两个短语意义和用法都不相同。其区别是：1.day by day在句中用作副词,作状语; 而day after day除用作状语外,还可用作主语、宾语等。2.day after day的意思是“每天,天天”,表示动作的重复和时间的长久,强调连续性; 而day by day含有“逐渐转变”的意味,常和turn, grow, change等含有转变意义的动词连用。
- every day, daily
- We do not have lessons every day.
- We do not have lessons daily.
- day, date
这两个词都有“日,天”的意思。其区别在于:1.date指某种事发生的“日期”,不一定只指某一天,可以统指年、月、日,一般用单数; day指一周中的“某一天,一整天”等,意为“白天,日子”,又专指星期几。例如:Has the date for the meeting fixed?开会的日期决定了没有?The first day of a week is Sunday.一个星期的第一天是星期天。2.在询问“某天是什么日子”时,两词都可用,但意义不同, date问的是“日期”,而day问的是“星期几”。例如:
- What day is it today?
- What is the date today?
- day, festival, holiday, leave, vacation
这五个词都有“假日”的意思。其区别在于:holiday来源于宗教的节日、假日,是普通用词,多用于英式英语中,指的是一个人在一年中不干工作的那段时间,也可用来表示一两天的短假期; day表示法定节日,多用于专有名词中; festival指民俗或宗教节日,并含有定期欢度的意味; leave指政府工作人员或军人的假期; vacation用于大学停课放假长达多周的假日或法院停止开庭时间,在美式英语中,凡是较长时间的休假都可用这个词。例如:August and September are the months of the year during which most English people take their holidays.一年中8、9两个月是大多数英国人休假的月份。We celebrate National Day every year.我们每年都庆祝国庆节。Christmas is one of the festivals of the Christian church.圣诞节是基督教的节日之一。The soldiers will go home on leave once every two years.士兵们每两年回家休假一次。Three vacations occur in the course of the year, viz, two weeks at Christmas, ten days at Easter and the usual two months in summer.一年中有三个假期,即圣诞节两周,复活节十天以及通常的两个月暑假。
误 One day morning,I ran into her on my way to school.
正 One morning,I ran into her on my way to school.

误 I haven't seen her for five years to day.
正 I haven't seen her for five years to the day.
析 表示时间确切到一点也不差时,应该用...to the day。

正 They rested by day and travelled by night.
析 “在白天”是by day,用介词by而不用during。
