few的详细讲解:

词语用法

pron.(代词)
  1. few用作代词时,意思是“很少,几个”,作主语时谓语动词须用复数形式。
  2. only few, so few相当于few,表示否定; some few相当于some,表示肯定。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
no fewer than, not fewer than
这两个词的意思表示的主观意愿不同:no fewer than表示“几乎一样多”; not fewer than则表示“最少一样多或更多”。试比较:
  • There were no fewer than 1000 people at the meeting. 到会人数竟达一千人之多。
  • There were not fewer than 1000 people at the meeting. 到会人数至少也有一千人。
pron.(代词)
few, a few
few的意思是“很少的…,几乎没有的…”,表示“虽然有,但很少”,强调“少”,表示否定的意思; a few的意思是“少数的…,几个…,一些…”,表示“虽然少,但还有”,强调“有”,表示肯定之意,两者之间的差别主要是主观上的,而不是实际数字上的差别。例如:
  • There are few people in the room.
  • 房间里没有几个人。(虽有但少)
  • There are a few people in the room.
  • 房间有几个人。(虽少但有)
few, little
这两个词都有“很少”“没多少”的意思,都表示否定含意。few用于可数名词前,与many相对; little用在不可数名词前,与much相对。
little few several
这几个词用作形容词时均含“少量的”之意。
  • little:little只修饰不可数名词,含否定意义。
  • few:few只修饰可数名词的复数形式,侧重指数量非常少,给人一种模糊概念,含否定意义。
  • several:several修饰可数名词的复数形式,指至少有3个,但不会超过5、6个。

词源解说

  • ☆ 直接源自中古英语的fwee;最初源自古英语的feawa,意为少,少的。
