A Dog expects till his Master has done picking of the bone.出自： Henry More
- expect所接的that从句在表示“预料”“期望”时可用虚拟式,在作“想”“认为”解时可用陈述式, that有时可以省略。
- expect的宾语从句若是否定式,常可用于转移否定结构,即把否定词移至主句。但在对话中则既可采用I don't expect so的形式,也可采取I expect not的形式,后者为非正式的语体。
- expect of和expect from都可表示“指望”“期望”,意思相同,可互换使用。
- expect, anticipate, look for, look forward to
- expect指“等待某事发生”,常有一定的根据,发生的可能性较大；anticipate含有“预先体味”的意味；look for是日常用词,也可表示“期待”；look forward to指以欢乐或焦急的心情期待某事发生。例如:
- I expect to see some fine films during the holidays.我期望假期能看上几部好电影。
- We anticipate that we shall hear from you again.我们预感到将会再接到你的信。
- I think we may look for a better result next time.我想下次结果可能会好一些。
- I'm looking forward to your visit.我期待着你的来访。
- expect, wait for
- He is expecting a letter.他正在等一封信。
- wait for则强调动作本身,即不干别的事而专门等待。例如:
- “Why are you standing here?” “I am waiting for Mr. Green.”“你站在这儿干什么?”“我在等格林先生。”
- expect, await
- await 除了指希望之外,还暗示思想上做好了某事会发生的准备。而expect强调某事不论好坏必然发生。例如：
- She had reason to expect that the trip would be exciting. 她有理由以为这次施行该是令人兴奋的。
- We await your reply with interest. 我们极感兴趣地等待你的答复。
- expect, hope
- 这两个词均可表示对某事的实现持有信心,其含义的差别仅在于程度上:hope指持有一定的信心,而expect指持有高度的信心。在用法上, hope不可接名词、动名词作宾语,也不可接复合宾语; 而expect既可接名词、动名词作宾语,也可接复合宾语。
- I expect John to come to the meeting.
- 我希望约翰能来开会。 (表示简单的想法)
- I expect John will come to the meeting.
- 我期望约翰能来开会。 (如果他不来,就会对他生气或失望)
- What can you expect from him?
- What can you expect of him?
