- intend多用作及物动词。其后可接名词、动名词、动词不定式或由that引导的从句作宾语,也可接由“to be/as+ n. ”或动词不定式充当补足语的复合宾语。有时还可以接双宾语,其间接宾语可转化为介词for的宾语。可用于被动结构。
- intend后面多接不定式，而少用动名词，如I intend to go的格式比较常见；
I intend him to do it at once.
I had intended to come, but was prevented by the bad weather.
- intend, be going to, be thinking of, mean
- 2.be going to表示在说话之前已经作出决定; 而be thinking of则表示正在“想”或“打算”,还没有最后决定。
- 3.在口语中,一般不用intend to,而用be going to或be thinking of的形式来表达。
- intend, design, plan
- design指为达到某种特定的目的而周密地、精心地“计划,筹划”,它偏重于计划的目的性、周密性和细致性; intend指在心中已有确定的目标或计划,作“盘算,意想”解,比plan的语气强,如:
- I intended to write to you, but I didn't get time to do so.我本打算写信给你,但是我没有时间。
- We are planning to buy a refrigerator.我们正计划买一台电冰箱。
