later的详细讲解:

词语用法

adv.(副词)
  1. later是副词,意思是“较晚地”“后来”,常用于书面语中。
  2. later常与一个表示具体时间的名词连用,指从过去或将来某一时间算起的“…后”“…之后”“过了…”。如果单独使用,即其前不加“若干时间”,则可以用来表示“从现在算起以后”。
  3. later无比较级和最高级形式。

词义辨析

adv.(副词)
later, afterwards
这两个词在表示“一段时间后”(at a later time)时可通用,但在与一段具体的时间连用时只用later,不用afterwards。例如:不能说He fell ill on Monday and died three days afterwards.而应说He fell ill on Monday and died three days later.他星期一患病,三天后就死了。
afterward(s) later
这两个副词均有“后来,以后”之意。
  • afterward(s):afterward(s)指一整段时间之后,一般不分具体时间,强调事物的先后顺序。
  • later:later常指一个具体的时间点之后,侧重“迟、推迟”。
later latter
这两个字仅差一字之微,词义和使用场合却大相径庭,读音也不一样。
  • later:later是形容词late的比较形式,表示时间的先后,意为“较后的”、“较新的”,它能作形容词,也能作副词。
  • 现在已过了十一点吗?
  • Is it later than eleven?
  • 这本字典的版本是比较新的。
  • This dictionary is a later edition.
  • 梁先生来得比我们预期的要晚些。
  • Mr.Liang came later than we had expected.
  • 我们以后再来看你。
  • We'll come to see you again later.
  • latter:latter表示事物的先后,意为“后者“,只能作形容词,不能作副词。
  • 他的论文后半部有精辟的看法。
  • The latter half of his essay contains penetrating observations.
  • 前者是一册香港街道图;后者是九龙街道图。
  • The former is a Hong Kong Island street map and the latter is a Kowloon street map.

常见错误

adv.(副词)
  1. 片刻〔相当一段时间〕以后

    a just〔soon,shortly〕 later

    a little〔much〕 later

    later不可用just, soon, shortly, immediately等词修饰,但可用little或much等来修饰。

  2. 我将在一周之后再给你打电话。

    I'll call again a week later.

    I'll call again in a week.

  3. 一年之后,他作为一个英雄回来了。

    He came back as a hero in a year.

    He came back as a hero a year later.

    later不可用于说明“从说话时算起若干时间之后”,应该用in a year, in a week等,只有在指“从过去或将来某一时刻算起若干时间以后”时才可用later。

  4. 她一定是个55岁以上的女人。

    She must be a woman in her later fifties.

    She must be a woman in her late fifties.

    表示“55岁以上接近60岁”用in one's late fifties,而不用later。
