  1. let的基本意思是允许对方照其意思而行,引申可表示“出租”“放掉,松掉”等。用于数学中通常表示“假设”。
  2. let用作及物动词作“出租”解时,可接名词或代词作宾语,也可接双宾语,其间接宾语可以转化为介词to的宾语;作“让,使”解时,通常接以形容词或不带to的动词不定式充当补足语的复合宾语;接动词不定式作宾语补足语时,如用于被动结构, to须保留。let还可接不带to的动词不定式作宾语,这时主要用于某些固定搭配中。
  3. let用作不及物动词时主要表示“出租”,主语通常为物(如房子等),其主动形式含有被动意义。
  4. 在口语中, let常用于祈使句中表示建议、请求、命令、警告等;在书面语中,可用allow代替let。
  5. 关于let能否用于被动结构的问题,语法学家看法不尽一致:Quirk认为let接以不带to的动词不定式充当宾语补足语时,不能用于被动结构(make可用于被动结构);Hornby认为let作allow解时不可用于被动结构。但在《朗文现代英汉双解词典(1988)》和《新英汉词典》中却有用于被动结构的例证。对此,笔者认为let作allow解时还是不用于被动结构,而改用allow为好。
  6. let's的否定形式在美国非正式语体中可说let's don't。例如:Let's don't forget.让我们别忘了。
  7. let you and me当然是正确的,但在口语中,也可以说let you and I。后者通常把you and I当作整体看待。例如:Let you and I do it right now!咱们俩马上就干吧!
  8. let偶尔也可用作名词,在法律用语中,意为“阻碍”或“妨碍”;在网球或其他类似运动中,意为“触网而过之球”,须重发。
  9. 下面两个句子都是正确的:

    This house is to let.This house is to be let.此房出租。这两个句子中的动词不定式的施动者均不是句子的主语,则其动词不定式可用于主动结构,也可用于被动结构,在语义上没有什么区别。如果句子中的主语是动词不定式的施动者,则动词不定式一般用主动结构。例如:I asked her if she had any rooms to let.我问她是否有房子出租。


let us, let's
let us常缩写为let's,它们之间的区别是:
1.let us可包括也可不包括说话的对象,即“让我〔咱〕们一起…”;let's则包括说话的对象在内,即“让咱们一起…”。
2.let us通常用在正式的场合,而let's则多出现在口语等非正式的场合。
3.let's的否定形式在美式英语中多用let's not,在英式英语中多用don't let's;let us的否定式在不包括对象在内时用don't let's;在包括对象在内时可用don't let us,也可用let us not。
4.let's在表示“提议”(说话人与听话人共同做某事)时,常跟shall we连用,以使语气比较婉转、客气;let us(不包括对方)在表示“请求”允许“说话人自己做某事”时,常跟will you连用,以使语气更加婉转、缓和。例如:
Let's start early, shall we?让我们早点出发,好吗?
Please let us go, will you?请让我们走,好不好?
let, let out
let alone, leave alone
Leave〔let〕 that bag alone.It's not yours!别动那个包,那不是你的!
1.作“不理〔管〕而听其自然”“不烦扰”解时,多用leave alone; 作“不干涉”解时,多用let alone; 作“更不用说”解时, let alone比leave alone更正式。
2.leave alone可用于被动结构; 而let alone不常用于被动结构。
let sb go, let oneself go
The boss let his secretary go.老板把他的秘书解雇了。
The manager worked hard all week, but on Saturday night he went to countryside and let himself go.经理整周辛苦工作,周六晚上就去乡下轻松一下。
let go, leave go
1.let go后可直接接宾语,也可接of再加宾语;而leave go后必须接of再加宾语。
2.let go可用于被动结构,而leave go一般不用于被动结构。
let, admit, allow, permit
She opened the door reluctantly to admit the unwelcome visitor.她很不情愿地把门打开,让不受欢迎的客人进去了。
Jack was admitted to the hospital to have his tumour removed.医生收杰克住院切除肿瘤。
allow指“允许某人做…”,给予客体执行某任务的权力,或同意某人的要求,和permit同义。它们在许多场合中可以通用。不过两者的意思也有细微差别, allow的意思是“允许”,表示主体有权不阻止、不妨碍或默许某事进行的意思。例如:
Playing ball is not allowed in the park.公园内不许打球。
Parking is not allowed here.此处不准停车。
Time does not permit me to stay longer.时间不容许我在这里多留一会。
Tom's parents will not let him swim in the lake.汤姆的父母不让他在湖里游泳。
2.permit 后可接不定式和动名词,但不可接名词从句; let不用动名词作宾语,其宾语后接动词原形。
Allow me to〔Let me〕 thank you on behalf of our factory.请允许我代表全厂职工向你致谢。
The facts permit no other explanations.这些事实不容许作其他解释。
let 是口头语。例如:
We won't let such a thing happen again.我们绝不允许再发生这样的事。
let, hire, rent
1.就租进、租出来说, let是租出, rent和hire则既可以是租进,也可以是租出。例如:
Will you rent me your boat for the weekend?小船租给我度周末好吗?
The house lets for 80 yuan a month.这房子出租,租金一个月80元。
2.就租期长短来说, hire强调临时性, let强调长期性,而rent既可以是长期的,也可以是临时的。例如:
During the holidays we hired a boat and went fishing.假期我们租了一条船去钓鱼。
We're hoping to let this field.我们希望把这块地租出去。
She rents out rooms to students.她把房间出租给学生。
3.就宾语来说, hire多用于对人的雇用, let和rent则着重于租物。例如:
The store hired two clerks for the sale.这家商店为了这次廉价销售雇了两名店员。
The farmers near cities are working part of their land themselves and are letting the rest.城区附近的农民自己耕种一部分土地,出租其余的部分。
He rented a colour TV soon after moving in.搬进后不久他就租了一台彩色电视机。
4.hire在表示租某物时,在英国,一般指租汽车、船只等; let指出租房屋、地产; rent在英式英语中指较长时间租入或租出房屋、商店或土地,在美式英语中可指长时间或短时间租用各类资本或日用品,这一意义现已影响到英国。例如:
Why don't you hire out your car to your neighbours while you're away, and earn some money?你不在家时为何不将你的汽车租给你的邻居,挣点钱呢?
I asked her if she had any room to let.我问她有没有房间出租。
I'm thinking of renting out my house while I'm away.我正在考虑在我离家期间把房子租出去。
