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。
  • 常见错误

    adv. (副词)
      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。

      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.

      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。

      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。
